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...

Otro Lado is a small lodge very well located in Santa Teresa Playa. The venue is really very charming, with the trees and flowers surrounding the pool. The rooms a nice, cosy and clean. The owners, an italian couple, are very friendly and helpful. Price is more than affordable. We were at another place and changed when we saw this...

I've never been to a place where everyone was so patient and kind; they treat both their guests and each other like one big family. The rooms and grounds are are altogether practical, peaceful, and stunning. The food is made and served with love and care. Laid back and easy going, even when I'd return from the beach, tracking in...

Otro Lado is just heavenly. Perfectly located, just off the main street of Santa Teresa, and a short 2min walk to the beach. Run by a super sweet Italian couple - Nico and Baggi - they are totally relaxed, helpful and very kind. The rooms are beautifully clean and spacious. The pool is great. There is a yoga room, and...

The hotel is well decorated- kind of a yoga/East Asian feel. Rooms are both clean and nicely set up. Staff was incredibly nice and helpful. They went out of their way multiple times to make sure we were comfortable. They also have a really fantastic menu with great lunch and dinner. Truly a 5 out of 5 I would come...

I spent a week there, in 2012, and 2 weeks in 2013, and I can't wait to go back again! You can either stay in a 2-story, spacious townhouse with kitchen, very practical for families with kid(s), or in a king-size room with balcony, great for singles or couples. I loved the shower and the ecological atmosphere of the room....

Absolutely beautiful, clean and well-driven. We stayed for five nights and had a lovely time in our lodge, by the pool or in the dining area. Good italian breakfast and lunch! Good value for the money and I will highly recommend it!

I have hesitated to write this review, as I did not want everyone to find out about this amazing little property and overrun it. Otro Lado is a beautiful respite off of the main road in Santa Teresa. It has a great main dining area, yoga area, and a few rooms and bungalows. It is small, but feels private. The...

I stay in this hotel for 4 nights and the long loud chanting, twice a day, 1 hour per session, really ruin my stay there. The first day I thought those repetitive sounds were coming from outside but after checking I figure out, it was the owner herself doing some louds chanting outside her place.

I definitely recommend this beautiful hotel to anyone traveling to the Santa Teresa/ Mal Pais area. We stayed for two nights in a two story villa, and absolutely loved our experience. The room was clean, well decorated, and filled with great amenities- A/C, outdoor shower, multiple hammocks, full size fridge, and more! The surrounding gardens and pool were spectacular and...
