This was the BEST place we stayed in Costa Rica. The town was a bit of a challenge to get to, but so worth it! Very peaceful, great pool, nice rooms, awesome breakfast, relaxing! Close walk to the beach and necessities. Definitely recommended!

My boyfriend and I enjoy our two nights staying at this hotel. It's boutique, but the details of the common area, pool and rooms were perfect. The pool was small, but beautiful decorated, some rooms had hammocks. Everything about this place is peaceful. They provide a simple, local breakfast. The pets in the area are friendly, and don't cause harm.... More

I have recently made a reservation at the hotel. I read the reviews and this was the hotel we wanted to stay most. But we already booked for a flight to Liberia, not knowing it would have been better to get there from San Jose. So, I asked the travel agency to cancel our reservation and discovered it didn't allow... More

We had a room with small balcony, fridge and AC. Room cleaned and towels changed every day. The hotel has a central living room area, swimming pool and yoga area, just to mention we were not able to enjoy them fully as there was a private yoga convention being held during our stay. Staff is really nice.

What a great hotel. Pretty grounds, very nice rooms, pool and grounds. Otro Lado Lodge and Restaurant has a really great restaurant that feels more like eating at your family's patio. The owners and staff were so friendly and helpful. Definitely I would book there again on my next visit! Highly recommended.

This place is an oasis close to the beach. I loved everything about this place. I loved the location, it is very close to the beach. Also, it has a very nice breakfast! I really recommend this place if you are going to Santa Tereza.

Otro Lado was exactly the refuge we needed in Santa Teresa. The town is a bit rougher than we had imaged but it was always a relief to return to Otro Lado. It is set back, almost hidden from the main road and we always felt safe and comfortable on the property. It is a perfect 5min. walk to the... More

Great appartments! My girlfriend and I shared an appartment which was excellent. Very clean and great opportunities to make your own meals. Staff was very kind and helped us book ATV and surfing. Pool is excellent and very clean. This place is suited for the romantic couple and small family. If we come back we will definently book Otro again.

We completely enjoyed our stay at Otra Lado. It's a clean, boutique hotel in the perfect spot of Santa Teresa across the street from the endless beach. The rooms are sweet and super clean and the staff is helpful and prompt. Every morning you can enjoy a light breakfast followed by a dip in the refreshing pool. Given it's small... More
