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

I really can't say enough about this place! After staying there a week and checking out other places... I have to say... there is no other place than Otro Lado Lodge! The Owners/Staff The owners are a young and hip Italian couple who adore their guests and treat them like family. Baggi and Nico were simply amazing hosts and you... More

I have been at Otro Lado for a brief stay and it has been abslutely perfect: the cabinas, spotlessly clean, are simple but pleasant, small details like flowers and parfumed essence make the difference. The ambiance is relaxed and kids friendly. We ate at Otro lado every single day, breakfast with delicious home made croissants and home made pie, and... More

All the wonderful things already written about this place are true. It does feel like a home away from home. It is spotlessly clean, the breakfasts were delicious, the landscaping was beautiful and the pool was a welcome oasis from the heat of the beach. We loved the walkable location to restaurants. We did need our car to get to... More

We can't compare Otro Lado to other places in Santa Teresa because we haven't stayed anywhere else there to offer up comparisons so this will be general commentary and feedback. Our room was 2 story: 2 single beds downstairs with a kitchenette, bathroom and indoor/outdoor shower. Up a narrow, handmade spiral staircase is the master bedroom with a balcony overlooking...

I just returned from spending 20 days at Otro Lado...It exceeded all my expectations. I traveled with a group of 12 women and thought it might be tricky to satisfy so many different people and tastes but everyone loved it there. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The food is amazing, always fresh, as good as any four star... More
