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

This is just the kind of place where we enjoy staying. Two weeks in October went by fast. Friendly and helpful owners who live on site. A nice assortment of guests that we thoroughly enjoyed meeting from around USA and South America. Location is good if you have a car. Other guests get along fine using bus around the island.... More

Very nice rooms. Have stayed there twice in the last year. Planning to go back in November if they have space. Sherri makes a wonderful different breakfast every morning. Good wifi conection. Not on the beach so having a car is a very good idea. Rick and Sherri make sure you feel at home.
