As all good things come to an end, our stay at Otro Lado had to end...Only for now though, we will definitely be back. Here's is a summary for anyone interested and especially for those who read few negative reviews online (i personally think that the only type of travelers who would not enjoy their stay at Otro Lado would...

Top shelf, the best, excellent accommodations and service, it's hard to describe this diamond along the beach of Santa Teresa. You need to understand that this part of Cost Rica is way far out there, in the middle of nowhere, along the beaches that now brag about being one of the best surf boarding spots in "the world" !! Well...

This was our first stay at Otro Lado. We loved It! All the positive reviews are true. It's lovely - comfortable, clean and quiet. Our room was on an upper floor in the building that does not face the pool. We could open the sliding door for a breeze or use the AC. The pool is great, the open air...

We splurged here on our last night in Santa Teresa, which was still an affordable room. The comfiest bed I've seen in a long time. Design is impeccable. Service is outstanding.

The road through Santa Teresa is dusty and potholed. Trucks, motorcycles and ATVs are always driving by. But walk back a short driveway to Otro Lado and you enter an Oasis. Beautiful gardens and pool. We stayed in a 2 story villa. 2 beds and a bath downstairs for the kids and large bedroom upstairs with another bath. There is...

We didn't stay at otra lado but our package booked us to have breakfast and lunch every day at otra. We absolutely loved the food, people, staff, vibe and overall experience of the hotel.

The location, quality, amenities and cleanliness were all perfect. I stayed in bungalow 2, which was more than I needed but a tremendous value. The breakfasts are delicious and I had an excellent salad for lunch as well. The pool was great for cooling off, and the grounds are well manicured and beautiful.

It takes an enormous amount of talent and skill to create a place like this.everyone at OLL works to make your stay measured by superlatives.so my challenge is this if you get the privilege to stay : relax ,relax,relax ,eat great food ,sleep in lovely surroundings and leave the way you found it. Thanks so much LOL to OLL.

My boyfriend and I stayed for three wonderful nights the first week of February. We had never been to the area and booked the hotel based on the website alone. The pictures don't do it justice. Otro Lado is super clean, friendly and laid back. We stayed in the house and enjoyed the peace and comfort the room provided. We...
