We thoroughly recommend staying here if you... More

This is a beautiful place to spend your vacation days while in Santa Teresa. The accommodations were excellent (very comfortable bed, large room and bathroom, balcony); the food was phenomenal; and the customer service was great! The owners are very hospitable and treat you like family. They were both extremely helpful in their recommendations of places to eat, things to... More

My friend and I came to Santa Teresa for a surf trip feb 2012. We are both in our late 20's. We booked this place based on the reviews. After driving down the dusty road into town I could only imagine what our place would be like. I was pleasantly surprised!! The lodge is back off of the dusty noisy... More

Nico and Selvaggia made us so very welcome, thank you. We had great food and service throughout, the breakfast and lunches were so nice, and we always felt as though nothing was too much. Really handy for all St. Teresa has to offer, loadsa restaurants and surf rent places within a 10 minute walk; we surf and were really glad... More

After booking a last minute villa at Otra Lado, we weren't entirely sure what to expect. Driving in through the dusty hodge podge of restaurants, surf shops and hotels that is Santa Teresa, we were a little uncertain of whether we wanted to stay in this touristy Surf Town. Walking up the unassuming gravel lane and under the quaint tropical... More

Otro Lado has everything you could need in Santa Teresa: walking distance to the beach, great surf shop (Del Soul) at the end of the driveway, clean rooms and great service. We stayed only two nights, but next time we come back, we might just stay here the entire time. The Rooms: We were "upgraded" to a Casita which was... More

My friends and I spent a week at Otro Lado. You can't beat the quality of accommodation, food and location. Especially for the price! Location: Otro Lado is located in Santa Teresa, just off the main drag (by main drag I mean dirt road). It's about a 5 minute walk to the beach. The beach access takes you to the... More

We absolutely loved staying at Orto Lado Lodge. Nico and Baggi are the Italian owners and have a passion for their business. They remembered every guests name and were genuinely interested in getting to know each guest. There was a mix of guests, mostly couples, but families and groups of friends also stayed. The grounds are clean and the rooms... More

We just spent a week at Otro Lado. The beach at Santa Teresa is wonderful, and staying at Otro Lado significantly enhanced our experience. Every day was almost the same: waking up early for their delicious breakfast, take a walk on the beach to one of the convenient yoga studios, return in the early afternoon for home-made gnocchi with ragu...
