We rented the house and 2 rooms at otro lada for Christmas week. We could not have been happier. The lodge has nice rooms, we loved our open air kitchen and dining area, the owners were wonderful, the grounds were well landscaped and cozy and we were 10 minutes from the beach. Could not have found a better place!

Room Tip: If you like to cook, ask for the house.

We stayed here for just one night in Jan, 2012, but we would have loved to stay longer. the place is tucked away off the main drag in Santa Theresa, a quiet nook. I could not tell from their website how the layout would be, but it is much nicer in person. The owners or managers are an Italian couple who went out of their way to be helpful to us. We were travelling with 2 toddlers and grandparents, so we had the whole spectrum of needs. A great pool, very clean, tremendous value, but the welcoming and helpful owners made the place stand out, hence the review.

Room Tip: we too 2 single rooms: there was ample space and the beds were super cozy. i dont think you can go wrong.

My wife and I just returned from Costa Rica a few days ago and had the most amazing time. A big part of that was our stay at Otro Lado in Santa Teresa. We spent four nights at the lodge and enjoyed the quiet, clean and comfortable rooms and the excellent food (the owners are Italian and make the most delicious dishes). The location is also ideal, as the lodge is situated across the street from the best stretch of beach (no rocks, pure sand and excellent waves for surfing) in the Santa Teresa area. I would definitely return to Otro Lado.

We stayed for one month during a two month Santa Teresa holiday and were sad to leave the friendly environment created by Baggi, Niko and Hata.
The retaurant provided us with many fantastic meals which we returned to enjoy many times after our departure from Otro Lado.
I thoroughly recommend Otro Lado lodge to any traveller looking for the complete satisfaction package in their accommodation in Santa Teresa.

Do not hesitate. If your looking to be in Santa Teresa and walking distance to SO MUCH, just book it. You will not find a nicer place for a better price. The owner is hands on and her staff is FABULOUS. Anyone who rates this as average has not seen some of the other places in the area for only a few bucks less. Thank You for taking such good care of me. Bring sandels or flip flops to walk around the property as it is covered in beautiful white stone paths.
