This is the best food we’ve had the whole 2 months we’ve been in Costa Rica by far! The restaurant is lit up beautifully and is well located (slightly away from the road unlike other restaurants) We would recommend trying the croquettes, the tuna tataki and the aubergine dish.

We stayed at Bajo el Arbol for 7 nights and it has been one of the nicest places we have been to in the past weeks. The accommodation is clean and neatly decorated. The room was cleaned and the bed was made every morning while we were at the beach. The included breakfast in the morning is always consisting of a mixture of fruits and a bit of bread with egg or avocado and tastes great. Mauro and Julio are really nice and helpful with everything, like looking for a transport possibility to the next accommodation or suggesting day trips from Santa Teresa to see some nice places in the area. The accommodation is about 2 minutes away from the sea, the supermarket and the ATM. A restaurant is included in the accommodation (and the food is delicious), however if you want to try something different, there are also many others in the area. The staff working in the restaurant and the accommodation was always in a good mood and treating us very friendly. The sea and beach is really nice and we watched the best sunsets here. I can recommend this place to anyone who is looking to stay in Santa Teresa. I wish I could stay here a bit longer.

I stayed at Bajo el Arbol B&B for 7 nights and thoroughly recommend it. The hospitality of Mauro & Julio is world class, breakfast is fabulous, so is the tapas restaurant for a fancy meal at night. The rooms are kept very clean and nicely decorated with a tropical touch, the B&B is very good value for money (especially in the heart of Santa Teresa, Playa Carmen). Location is perfect, shops/restaurants nearby, and beach access literally out the front, to swim, surf, watch sunsets to your heart’s content. Also Betzy the dog is the cutest. I hope to return again soon!

I came for 4 nights and ended up staying a week - Mauro and Julio are such friendly & accommodating hosts! Rooms are stylishly unfussy and spotless, and the garden is beautiful with stunning enormous feature tree and shaded hammocks for chilling. Super central location, quiet and very safe, just a short stroll from the beach. Breakfast (included) is delicious!! Highly recommended

Wow. From the stay to the food, I would highly recommend Bajo el Árbol to anyone visiting Santa Teresa and Malpaís! My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights here and were immensely satisfied with Mauro and Julio's accommodations. We planned on having a nice meal out one night on our vacation... We are so glad we saved it for our final night at Bajo el Árbol. We tried three tapas, the octopus & sweet potato plato principal, and the cava sangria. We LOVED the eggplant, honey and goat cheese tapa. It was delicately sliced and sweet -- you might mistake the eggplant for a fruit. The octopus special (pictured) was amazing as well -- the presentation was beautiful. As guests we got 10% off! The wonderful cooking from Julio was a feature every morning -- free breakfast, with coffee and wonderful toast, fresh fruit salad, and a breakfast tapa (it changed daily -- e.g. one day was avocado toast). But the cooking was equally matched by Mauro's fantastic hospitality as our go-to contact for our stay. We enjoyed the romantic and rustic feel of the B&B, that offered community and privacy at our leisure (only four rooms are for rent). The yard has wonderful hammocks and comfortable seating, and it is just across the street from the beach. We used a mosquito net, but the bugs were never a big issue. We heard some noise late one night, but it didn't affect our experience overall. From the food to the accommodations, we would highly recommend Mauro and Julio's Bajo el Árbol. Definitely consider staying or eating here if you can!
