Great beach location and beach chairs, food okay.

My husband and I and a group of friends spent a few hours here on the beach. The beach location itself is great. There is not much seaweed and it is not as crowded as other areas of Playa Norte. The guy who helped situate our chairs and umbrellas was great, but we were hoping for beach-side service... read more

Service is ok, food is not all that great. Last year, Buho's was one of my favorites for breakfast...not this year. Food took forever to get to us and then was cold. Last year they had the best juevos rancheros and I was looking forward to it this year...absolutely terrible...I was sooooo disappointed! Will not return unless it's for the... More

180 pesos for 2 chairs and umbrella (60 pesos each). The beach is amazing and shallow and there is not much seaweed. The service at Buho's was terrible. It was impossible to get a drink at the bar. We didn't even attempt to eat. We ended up walking down to Tarzans for drinks. They were stronger and tasted much better.... More

A certain level of disinterest and aloofness is expected in Caribbean settings like this, but on two separate nights two different bartenders were absolutely terrible to my wife and I. We are american, and we were the minority there at the time with all the Spanish speaking tourists around. We were blatantly ignored and waved off by the bartenders while... More

The bartender seemed almost mad that we actually wanted to order drinks and was just darn pretty rude. This was our favorite spot in the past, but we will not be back.

We hosted a destination wedding for 80+ people in Isla Mujeres the week of May 30th. We decided to kick off the festivities with a welcome reception at Buho's on 5/28. Great decision! Maria was our liaison, and was very responsive and easy to work with. The ambiance and set-up was perfect--a little hors d'oeuvre display, tables and chairs set... More

We were so looking forward to sitting on the swings and enjoying a cocktail. Unfortunately, this place is abandoned and is fenced off.

This place has such a chill vibe to it. I attended a Wedding Welcome party here and couldn't get over how beautiful it was, without any frills. Along with many beach bars on the island, they have beds that you can relax or get a massage on. I came back the next day and used the beach in front of... More

Beautiful view of the beach on Playa Norte with a front bar with swing chairs! Prices were good and food was delicious. Fast and good service. Not crowded at lunch time when we were there during the week. Keep your feet in the sand while you swing and enjoy a drink.
