If I am standing opposite to five people in which order are arranged from left to right: "Mary -> Sara -> Tom -> John -> Mat". Can I say:

 

1 Mary is on the left of John.

2 Mary is on the left side of John.

3 Mary is on the left hand side of John.

 

4 Mary is to the left of John.

5 Mary is to the left side of John.

6 Mary is to the left hand side of John.

 

Thanks!

"opposite" (mainly BrE) is not followed by "to," and the phrase "in which order" is not correct. You could have said: I am standing in front of five people arranged  in the following order from left to right (OR from left to right in the following order).

You can use both "on/to sb's left." See Rachel's reply here.
