Shame, could be so much fun

Considering the Five Hotels that feed it business, could be better. Continental breakfast for local guests, useless for lunch or dinner. As a bar, could be more fun. Not worth a stop, unless your staying close by for a quick starter drink

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.

We went for breakfast, but they were out of bread & croissants so we decided to leave. The waiter dropped the F bomb in Spanish because we messed up his order pad. I will NEVER go back.

Drinks are not great and I didn't try the food but I went back to this swing bar repeatedly to watch the sunset. Great atmosphere! Right on the beach!

We received vouchers from our hotel for a complimentary breakfast. The waitstaff were openly hostile, surly and rude. We stayed 5 days so we received 5 vouchers but only went twice due to the behavior.
