My boyfriend and I stayed at Otro Lado for 9 nights in August and loved every minute of it. The Otro Lado is simple and clean, perfect for the Santa Teresa area which is rural and beautiful. The owners, Baggi and Nicco, were excellent hosts and were able to give us great tips on surfing, yoga, restaurants, etc. They happily... More

My wife and I absolutely loved our stay at Otro Lado. We stayed there as part of a Lucero Surf Retreat package. Nico and Baggi, the owners, were incredible hosts. They prepared amazing meals for breakfast and lunch and had excellent recommendations for dinner on the strip. They scheduled all our day-trips for us and made sure even our smallest... More

The grounds was gorgeous and the staff was so friendly and helpful. During our stay, we had many interesting conversations with the owners and other guests and made new... More

A wonderful experience. Great base camp for a surfing adventure. Best hotel in Santa Teresa. The bungalows are spacious, clean, lovely. Glorious fresh water pool. No complaints, pure joy. Many thanks Nico and Baggi for the delicious Italian food and warm hospitality!

Rooms are simple but clean and centrally located to surf beaches, restaurants and shopping. A great value which I recomend to anyone. Restaurant has best italian food around, but is open only for breakfast and lunch. Great expresso! I liked the pool and night security guard, and owners very friendly and helpful. Could use more parking, but overall good report.

This was a gorgeous hotel! We stayed near the end of the dry season so everything was very dusty, but this was set back enough that it did not effect you while you were in the hotel area. Kiko(kiku?) was a great Argentinian restaurant near the hotel that had great mojitos! If you are looking for a night life this... More
