I read all these tripadvisor reviews before we arrived and this place definitely lived up to the descriptions. We stayed an entire week and didn't want to leave. The beaches, surf and natural landscape of Santa Teresa were stunning and this place was the perfect complement--I wouldn't be surprised if it was designed by some kind of feng shui master. There is a different kind of light and mood depending on the time of day and I would recommend lounging around the pool when you can. The sounds of tropical bird calls, cicadas and howler monkeys along with the gorgeous landscaping were out of this world. It is owned and run by the kindest, coolest, stylish group of Italians you can imagine and they have nailed the sweet spot of professionalism and laidback mellowness. The standards for cleanliness in our lodge were above and beyond the highest standards we could expect, and we will definitely be coming back :-)

Room Tip: Dont' know about the other rooms but our lodge was phenomenal. Private, clean, perfect.

Our experience of our stay was best summed up by proprietor Nico when he said, "We tried to build the kind of place we'd want to stay at." It's a perfect little oasis among a stretch of backpacker hostels--which are fine if you're 22 but maybe not ideal if you're a grownup. The villas are a perfect blend of modern design using tropical elements like bamboo and indigenous foliage. It's nice to have a pool as well as the nearby beach. The breakfasts were lovingly prepared. The staff was amazingly friendly and remembered our names. And best of all it was wildly affordable. We're already recommending it to our friends.

We have just stayed at Orto Lado for 10 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nico and staff are extremely accommodating and able to assist you with anything you may need. Our villa was clean, comfortable and the outdoor area is a place of serenity. Wether lying by the pool, in your hammock or sitting in the lounge you always feel relaxed and at ease. The beach is just across the road and there are plenty of options to eat nearby or rent a bike/ATV. Breakfast options are fantastic and tasty. We would highly recommend staying at Orto Lado.

Otro Lado was the most spectacular place that we had stayed over our three weeks in Costa Rica. I cannot criticise anything about this place. It is superb and I recommend anyone to stay here! Perfect for singles, couples or families.
It has a beautiful pool with sunbeds to relax when you don't fancy a stroll to the beach, wonderfully kept tranquil gardens, fantastic lodges with such attention to detail - down to flowers and complimentary toiletries and a overhead rain shower with hot water in the bathroom and beach towels given specifically for the beach. The bed linen and towels were clean and fresh and rooms are cleaned every day and they have a safe. Each lodge had a good amount of privacy and street noise was not a problem here as it had been in other places we stayed in Santa Teresa. I liked that you left the keys at the desk as we didn't have to worry about them when we went to the beach or local restaurants.
The breakfast was included and there is a great variety of things to choose from on the menu. The food at the restaurant was absolutely amazing and service was great.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and kind, we felt really comfortable asking for directions and opinions for places to eat out and activities around the area. Baggi and Nico made us feel really at home and I wish I had booked all of our three weeks stay here!
The location is perfect, close to beach, supermarket, shops, surfboard hire and atvs.
I cannot fault it here it is just perfect. Don't bother looking anywhere else, you will regret it if you do not stay here!

The room, the setting, the food, the service, the flexibility were all remarkable and made a destination wedding experience very memorable. There was a yoga area with mats and an adjacent room for massages. The beach was across the street, but the hotel was set back far enough so that street noise was not a problem.
The proprietors were very nice and the food was great. (Breakfast and lunch only.)

Room Tip: All the rooms were rented by the wedding party family and friends. Some rooms had more amenities than others, which was reflected in the price, but everyone was happy with their accommodations.
