It was my first time to Playa Santa Teresa. Otro Lado Lodge is set back from the main road that runs parallel to the beach. It's a quite little oasis that has clean rooms, swimming pool, pretty landscaping and a relaxing area where breakfast is served. Breakfast has a nice selection and is good quality. For the price and location,...

Clean rooms with minimalistic decor and patio opening onto balcony/garden/decked area. Hosts were very helpful. Breakfast delicious. Pool perfect for refreshing dip to escape heat! Location was 3-5min walk to the beach.

A must stay when in Santa Teresa. The hotel is super relaxing with beautiful tropical trees and buddhas watching you as you walk through the grounds. The owners are very very nice and accommodating. I highly recommend anyone to stay here as its a paradise heaven for all. We will most definetly be back again!

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Otro Lado. They make you feel like family in this super-friendly lodge run by europeans. The included breakfast every day is amazing as well as lunch that you can order in the restaurant. All the food is fresh and tastes home-made. The vibe is super chill - there are hammocks outside...

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Otro Lado. The grounds are lush and gorgeous, and even though you are in the heart of the action just of the main road in ST, you feel very secluded and secure. The rooms are well-appointed and very comfortable. I was overall very impressed with the vibe, facility and ambience and...

My friend and I were in a Santa Teresa for a week of surf camp and stayed at Otro Lado Lodge. Otro Lado sits back a distance from the main beach road and is very tastefully landscaped and arranged so that you feel the true essence of Costa Rica. The pool was awesome and a welcome treat after a day...

The rooms in Otro Lado are comfortable and inviting. It was probably the best bed that we had during our entire stay in Costa Rica and the A/C and outdoor patio made the rooms very comfortable. Quick 3 minute walk to the beach and breakfast had a lot of great options. The one thing that made our stay less pleasant...

So beautiful! The receptionist (I forgot her name) from Spain was incredibly helpful she will help take care of anything you need!! The rooms are clean and comfortable. The grounds are well kept and in a perfect location in relation to restaurants and across the street from the beach. The breakfast at the hotel is really good too!!
