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....

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...
