We went here twice for lunch as it was really good. Tried both sandwiches, pasta and salads, all really tasty. Very friendly service and very nice setting!

We are a family of 4 (8 and 10 year old) and spent a week at Otro Lado. The location is awesome, 1 lot from the dusty main road and close to the public beach access road - easy walk with surf / SUP boards. It was a little oasis with wonderful grounds filled with various trees and plants to spend your daily siesta. One of the trees had amazing flowers that were so fragrant. There were hammocks and beds everywhere to relax/read. The yoga lounge was awesome for stretching in the mornings. The kids loved the pool - they went in 3-4 times each day.

Breakfast was awesome and consistent (thanks Maria!). Lots of great coffee and crepes/croissants. The kitchen in the room was small and perfect for lunches and some easy dinners.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time here. We showed up a day early and the owners were more than willing to accommodate us. They helped us find the best ways to get around, places to eat and sites to see. We ended up extending our stay here because of the friendly owners. The food at Otro Lado was amazing! The rooms were clean, comfortable and zen. Very laid back environment with lots of friendly guest. The pool and landscape were beautiful in this small and quiet lodge. A quick 2-5 min walk to beach and food. We recommend the surf shop near the entrance if you want to rent a board. Very nice and they help find you a perfect board for your experience level. We were around mostly people/couples our age (early 30's) and a few families as well. I would recommend to anyone!

We found this hidden gem by chance. It is right next to the best surf school in ST ,where our teen girls took surf lessons.
I picked in and... fell in love with this place on the spot. It has a swimming pool for its guests which makes it a wonderful place for families with small kids because the ocean could be rough.
We had a breakfast there which was very good , an excellent espresso. the owners are the waitress which makes it feels homey. We heard from the surf school owners that their home made paste is like a god kiss. Unfortunately, I discover this place on our last day in ST so we didn't have a chance to enjoy the home made pasta . the place is open for "outside guests"for breakfast and lunch only. It's not so easy to get fresh produce in the peninsula but this place had it !. food is prepared in the ultimate Italian way: fresh, delicious and precise.
