Nice views

We stayed at the hotel attached to Buho's for our 30th wedding anniversary. We were given free breakfast with our room. Coffee was pretty good. I didn't eat the breakfast provided. I only ate lunch there once and I had the pizza. It was good, but nothing to rave about. We never ate dinner there... read more

My husband and I, as well as our two friends, stopped by this bar to have a beer. The woman bartending was friendly and the views were beautiful. The bar area is on the beach and there are several swings and hammocks to sit on if one so choooses. There are also tables under a covered outdoor area in case... More

I have stayed at Cabanas Maria del Mar for many years; Buho's serving their free continental breakfast. The breakfast comes with 2 toasts, butter, jam, orange juice and a coffee. SERVICE: I used to go down to take advantage of the free coffee and the beautiful view. I am not a picky person, nor do I need to be in... More

We went there on two occasions and on both of them I thought the bill was higher than what I added up the items to be. It was NOT service included; that much I could see from the bill. However, the bill comes all stapled over with two other pieces of paper so it's hard to take a decent look;... More

The ideal place with the worst service. After struggling to win their attention, they talk to you in an aggressive and arrogant way, even for some nachos you need to wait at least 30 minutes, the guacamole had almost no avocado (just onions) and the tacos were completely insipid. In addition the drinks seem to be done with chemical flavors...... More

Great location, great shrimp pizza, but you have to beg someone to even look in your direction. Went there twice and it was the same thing both times. 5 guys just hanging out along the back bar and they see everyone trying to get their attention and they just ignore you. Then the order is lost, then no drink..............argh!

We just arrived back from Isla after spending a week on this beach as our hotel was right there. We hung out on this beautiful beach almost everyday. For the most part the food and drink from this place are just ok, but when you laying on the beach all day it's convenient. All week we watched one waiter that... More

Buho's is a laid back bar right on the beach so you can dig your toes in the sand. You can even choose swings or hammocks to enjoy. It also has a "Treehouse" with excellent yoga classes three times a day. The food is decent enough to save you from having to leave the beach.

I'm not sure how you would rate this bar as under a 5 star place, simply because of the view and location. You can't get much better than literally having a bar on Playa Norte with tree swings as bar stools. That being said, be prepared to wait a pretty decent amount of time for a drink. When the drinks... More
