We had a great holiday at Buffam's Tropical Haven. Sherrie en Rick make you feel really welcome and at home. They were very friendly and always willing to help. They helped us renting a car, they lent us beachchairs, we could use their beachtowels and you could rent snorkel gear with them as well. They served us delicious breakfast everyday.... More

Our week-long stay at Buffam's Tropical Haven was a wonderful introduction to Aruba. We were so happy to be staying at a comfortable, inviting location, away from the noisy, flashy hotels. A quick car ride could take us in that direction any time we wanted, but staying at the Haven was a retreat we enjoyed. Rick and Sherrie were attentive,... More

I wondered about Tropical Haven's excellent reviews right up until I actually stayed there. Now here's mine! What a pleasure. Great location away from crowds but close enough to the action, Great hosts.

I've returned for my 2nd stay with Sherrie and Rick. Many guests come back to the same lodging facility for different reasons. I've returned for a 10 week holiday for every reason I can think of. You will never find more pleasant, more principled, or more honest hosts. They are there for you lock, stock and barrel. They do it... More

What a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are immaculate clean as is the whole property. The place is 5 minutes from the beach by car. The cost is very reasonable. Rick and Sherrie are great host, they make you feel that you known them for years. We stay in the large studio, which is quite suitable for 2 people.... More

We really enjoyed our week at Tropical Haven. It's not a fancy B&B, but it's cute, clean, spacious, and the friendly hosts, Sherrie and Rick, go out of their way to answer your questions and help you with anything you may need. You feel like you are staying with friends and they have interesting stories to tell. We didn't have... More

Just back from another weeks stay at Buffman's. As in the past the stay was wonderful. Sherrie made us a week of wonderful breakfasts. They gave us great advice on a couple of new places to eat. The rooms are very clean and have plenty of space for clothes. Rick and Sherrie are the best hosts of any place we... More

We saw this resort and thought it was a nice place. We put 200 dollars down for a 2 week stay in May of 2015. Something came up and we weren't able to come for our 2 week stay. I thought that maybe we could get a refund or a partial refund beings the time we were going to stay... More

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
