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

My friend and I spent a week at Otro Lado Lodge practicing yoga and learning to surf. The place was amazing in all aspects. The food was gourmet restaurant style, fresh and very tasty. The two-story bungalows were nature-inspired ecologically friendly and very very stylish in minimalistic eco decor style. Its a quiet and very cozy boutique hotel, with the... More

I don't know if it was just when we were there, because I have heard the town was lovely, but the street in this town smelt of rotting fruit. The town itself was very nice and the beach was amazing I just found it weird walking down the street. That said this place was incredible. It's just across the street... More

After spending 5 nights in Mal Pais, my wife and I came to Santa Teresa between Christmas and the New Year to stay at Otro Lado. We stayed in one of the new rooms for the bulk of our time (the original rooms were all booked up), but had one of the original "2 story" rooms for the last night.... More

I have only good things to say about this place. The rooms are great, everything is incredibly clean, the owners are super nice, the location is excellent. I recommend it to anyone heading that way.

My friend and I (2 females in our late 20's) stayed at Otro Lado Lodge for 1 week over New Year's Eve. The location is great - right in the centre of Santa Teresa and directly across the street from the beach. We were immediately welcomed by the Italian couple who owns and runs the hotel. They assisted us with... More
