The hotel is small and located in Santa Teresa, almost in front of one of the beach entrances. Stayed for 3 nights, arrived really late which was no problem as the night guard was expecting us and led us fast to our room. We stayed at room 6 which was clean and had a very comfy king bed an air...

We loved Otro Lado! We felt like we were in a different world after walking off the dirt road and up the drive. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, they make great suggestions on where to eat if you're planning to try different restaurants in town. The room was very clean and spacious. Having a pool out our front door...

Great service, and amazing Italian breakfasts and food. We stayed at the villa next to the pool and our daughter enjoyed every second. Owners are very friendly. The only thing it needs is a parking place easier to find.

We stayed here for 6 nights in April. Everything about the Lodge is great. The rooms, the food, the pool, the staff, the location. Highly recommended. If we come back to Costa Rica we'll be sure to visit Santa Teresa and stay at Otro Lado again.

Beautiful and tranquil. Great hosts and amazing rooms. The private hammock outside the room was fantastic. Would recommend it and would love to go back. Great food too. Free Wifi is great, although it gets a bit slow because the staff at the hotel use it quite heavily I think.

We stayed for 3 nights. We picked it up for opinions in this site and for the price (including breakfast).  Selvaggia and Nico were really nice. Very helpful. Good attention anytime. Food was really good: 5 options for breakfast, and they make fresh italian pasta with Italian ingredients, very delicious! Rooms were very beautiful and clean for a beach hotel!...

Please stop looking any further - seriously! Just spent a week at Otro Lado and it was a slice of heaven. We needed to spend one night at another place in Santa Teresa in the same price range so I can say with confidence this is 10x better than any other place. The garden and pool are lush, there is...

Just got back from a great stay at Otro Lado. I spent hours researching hotels before we went. Read all the reviews about this place and booked it. Don't read anymore reviews. Book now!

We had the pleasure of staying at Otro Lado for four nights and absolutely loved it! The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the beach but is nestled away from the noise and traffic of Santa Teresa's main road so you feel like you're walking into a private oasis when you enter the driveway. Our room was spacious...

We were most fortunate to have stayed here for 3 nights. A lovely environment, we enjoyed our 1 bedroom, 2 bath, lodge located right next to the pool.
