    Ingram family vacation
    The trip is to long from San Jose. I could have driven to Uvita which is just as nice and not so much dust. The dust is horible. If you have breathing problems, don't go to Santa Teresa!

    An excellent option while in Santa Teresa
    I absolutely loved my time at Otro Lado. From my arrival -- check in was super fast -- all the way through my last day this hotel proved a beautiful oasis in an otherwise loud and dusty city. The hotel is centrally located in Santa Teresa. Keep in mind; however, that most of the action is in Playa Carmen which will require that you travel every day in one direction or the other. The rooms were always spotless -- something that's not easy to achieve in a beach hotel, but the hotel owners pride themselves in keeping up the grounds and having the highest standard for cleanliness. The pool was very nice and the restaurant, which served complimentary breakfast and a limited menu of [not included] lunches was always on par. Vanessa, at reception was incredibly helpful in giving me the lay of the land and providing outstanding recommendations for local eateries and activities. I was traveling solo, but the hotel was mostly occupied by couples. I'd definitely come back

    I spent 4 nights here and it was absolutely fantastic. Very laid back vibe, friendly and helpful staff, nice pool, made to order breakfast in the morning. Perfect little hotel to stay at in Santa Teresa. I have nothing but great things to say about this place.

    The best value in a hotel we've ever had.
    We can't say enough good things about this place. The price we paid compared to the experience we had made this the BEST VALUE of anywhere we stayed on our entire trip. The staff, first and foremost, were amazing. They were so friendly, helpful, and kind. They helped us with several questions we had, including the best roads to take to the airport on the way home. The included breakfast seems like a small detail, but was our favorite part of the whole experience. Every morning we would go sit in the shaded and cozy dining area and choose between several delicious breakfast options. It wasn't a buffet- it was full service. Coffee, smoothies, and a range of food options. We looked forward to it every morning. Our last morning we left very early, before breakfast was open, but they packed a bag for us for the road- it was so thoughtful. The grounds were amazing, tons of little cozy spots to set up and relax and the plants and flowers were amazing. The pool was clean and gorgeous. We woke up extremely well rested every night because of how quiet it was. Everything is walkable in the town, but this spot was especially so. Right out front of the hotel is the most highly regarded surf school on the beach, and we took lessons there every morning we stayed. This was our most inexpensive place we stayed but definitely one of our favorites. Can't recommend it enough!

    Beautiful hotel grounds.
    Great location for awesome beach and good restaurants, but main street needs paving and speed bumps. Real nice pool with a little bit crowded pool deck. Real nice staff. Stairs in two storey unit a little hard to navigate.

    Beautiful private setting
    A beautiful private setting with a nice,clean, pool about 50 meters off the main Santa Teresa roadway. The owners/staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. There is a great little gym operated by “Mateues” close by. Unfortunately the Main Street, really, the only street that parallels the beach, through Santa Teresa is full of hazards, ..uncovered holes, exposed wire and rebar etc. Worst of all are the drivers particularly of atvs and Motorcycles. The traffic is chaotic, loud and dangerous ...very uncomfortable for most pedestrians. Of course this is not a fault of the property but common concern for anyone wishing to walk in this community.

    Housekeeping didn’t change towels the whole time we were there. Other than the housekeeping it was a great place
