Once upon a time, in a beautiful land far, far away....I had the most amazing holiday of my life in Otro Lado. It was recommended to me by my surf instructor from the UK and I will be forever grateful! A friend of mine and I went there in February/March and we liked it so much that we returned a... More

Visited Otro Lado Lodge with my boyfriend and it was an unforgettable experience. The hotel is well located in the town, next to the bus stop to and from San Jose and close to bike rentals, restaurants and the beach. Nico and Selvaggia are fantastic hosts and we very helpful with arranging activities and making sure our stay was comfortable.... 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

... excellent rates, not to mention the delicious italian food, spatious and modern rooms (the beds were a bit hard though) and a really nice pool. Remember to try their focaccias! Yum! A really good deal close to the beach!

From the moment we arrived with our bags in tow, we were met by Nico and Baggi, who made us feel right at home. We stayed at their lovely villa for five glorious nights and enjoyed some of our best sleep ever. The resort was very quiet at night yet lively during the day. The food was delicious Italian fare...

Wow....this is a beautiful, simple, lovely gem of a hotel. We didn't want to leave, and when we did, it was the standard to which we held up every other hotel on our trip. We found it by accident, and it ended up being our favorite-- right across from the beach, quiet, lovely, peaceful, with great hosts. This hotel is... More

I resolved to write a review of Otra Lado because the owners and staff deserve it for the effort and detail they have put in to this charming little hotel. As I opened Trip Advisor this morning, I see that the last review of a few days ago mentions that the town is dirty. This reviewer is quite right and... More
