Sara & I had the best time EVER!!! It was an INCREDIBLE mother-dtr trip. The Tropical Haven has only improved since my last visit in Jan 2014. We could not have asked for a better 10 days...we had Rick & Sherrie all to ourselves! It was a real comfort to have "friends" on the island. Sara was stung by something... More

Our stay with Sherrie and Rick was simply amazing. When we arrived, our luggage was delayed and S&R lent us their supplies and took us shopping to buy swimmsuits, etc. They didnt have to do it but they did and we felt they really cared about us and we appreciated it a lot. The Tropical Haven is a beautiful place.... More

We stayed for a week at Buffman's. Again the hosts are the best around. Good breakfast in the morning and clean room make for a wonderful stay. Close to Eagle beach,, which is my favorite, and a short drive to high rise area or downtown. About five months till the next Aruba trip and will only stay at Buffman's.

We have been coming to Aruba for 10 years now. I remember when Buffams first opened! Every Year there have been changes / updates made. We just returned from Aruba, and all of their rooms were recently renovated. What you see on their website is exactly what you get! Rick and Sherry are always there to answer your questions and...

I'm a former B&B owner on Cape Cod...well traveled, and intimately familiar with Aruba and it's many cost effective lodging facilities, (after having stayed in four others.) Buffam's was discovered by Massachusetts friends of mine. They gave me a glowing recommendation, knowing I spend ten weeks on island each winter. Sherrie was not able to accommodate for the brief stay... More

We recently returned form Buffam's Tropical Haven. We were there for a total of twenty three days and it was a home away from home. The warmth and hospitality of Rick and Sherrie go beyond expectations. Our apartment was well appointed and spotless. The location of the Haven is between the low and high rises which made it convenient for... More

We stayed at this little tropical paradise from 1-4-2014 to 1-18-2014 for our honeymoon. I was nervous about traveling outside of the USA but Rick & Sherri were so welcoming and easy going. With leaving our combined family of now 8 kids (6 kids ages 14 to 4 at home plus 2 more that are adults and on their own)... More
