We spent 2 weeks at Otro Lado Lodge and they were amazing! The hotel is very well located in the quiet area of Santa Teresa. The beach access is across the street, and a very nice supermarket is located walking distance. The hotel is immaculate, clean-clean-clean! You can really feel how the owners care for their property, the landscaping is... More

My wife and I were on our honey moon in Costa Rica, and we decided to stay at Otro Lado since it was close to the surf, and the reviews sounded great. When we arrived we were not disappointed! The couple who run the lodge are so nice and we felt right at home. The room we were in was... More

We sent them a few questions via email before arriving and they responded within a few hours. They organized a taxi for us and over and over gave us great tips about things to do and how to... More

This was my second trip to Otro Lado, because it was so nice to visit the first time that I wanted to come back. The location is great. It is at the end of the local bus route and a two minute walk from the beach and great restaurants. It has an extraordinarily friendly feel within the open air restaurant.... More

Best choice in Santa Teresa. The rooms were large and bright. All windows had screens so you could use the fan and have the windows open, or air-conditioning when it was really hot. The property is gorgeous with lovely common areas. The owners were out of town, but left Francesca in charge. She was exceedingly helpful and friendly. -Logan/Andrew, Salt... More
