“Very nice place”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Stayed at Otro Lado for 2 nights in Feb 2014. Enjoyed it very much. Nice rooms and a good breakfast in the morning. Close to the beach and places to eat all within an easy walk from the hotel. Owners from Italy were friendly and accommodating. Worth the money. Will be back!

After reviewing several lodging choices we decided on the Otro Lado Lodge. We loved it! The property was amazing! It was clean, comfortable, and offered everything you need. We really liked having a fridge/kitchen for drinks and lunch. A bonus was the location. It was far enough from the road so you didn't hear ATV and motorcycle noise but it was a very close walk to the beach. Their is also a great surf shop nearby as well as many restaurant choices! Great spot!

We finally decided to go to Santa Teresa, and looked for and evaluated many options. Couldn't have made a better decision...Otro Lado Lodge is a great cozy place! Great location close to many restaurants, stores and BEACH! The owners are super friendly and helpful! Breakfast was delicious, you can choose from like 5 different options...all fresh and tasty! Also we considered this was a place with a great fair price! If your considering going to Santa Teresa...this is a great option!

Stay at Otro Lado was a pleasant surprise. The hotel is amazing, the rooms are cleaned everyday and smells so good. The pool is a mirage that I have enjoyed everyday! The food prepared by Baggi and Nico is delicious and very healthy. Everyday they have something very good to offer. Baggi and Nico are very welcome people and I will for sure be back!

Definitely a very pretty hotel. Nice pool, clean rooms and overall good vibes. However don't expect the best service in the world. If you don't want to be bothered and know the beach life in Costa Rica this could be perfect for you.

If you need a bit more service, guidance, and overall hospitality I would suggest you look into other spots in the area.

Like I mentioned this is a really pretty spot and everything is put together visually and cleanliness-wise ... But if Otro Lado wants to take it to the next level, they'll have to really start putting their guests top of mind, and not making them feel like they're on their own here.

I am torn. The more people who know about this gem the harder it will be for me to get a room. But the place is immaculate, everyone is super friendly - yoga and flexibility classes are great (get a massage or the flexibility class from Nathan. Crazy knowledgable!)

Second time here and won't be my last. As long as you don't book up all the rooms people!

our favourite place we stayed in all of Costa Rica. great staff, beautiful grounds, delicious and reasonably priced food, awesome location close to the best beach. rooms are clean and classic. Beds weren't the most comfortable, but they were clean which matters more! Felt like we were in a little tropical paradise away from the world, but if you just walk down to the street you are in the heart of a great area in Santa Teresa full of great restaurants and super markets and shops. You do not need to be a surfer to enjoy this town, although it doesn't hurt, the waves were perfect.
I suggest you get down to the beach every single day to see some of the best sunsets ever!. and eat the pasta at the restaurant, it is awesome!
