Ok for a drink, but not a quick one

Stopped here on the golf cart after cruising around the island. The service was SUPER SLOW! We only ordered a drink and it took about 15 minutes for the bartender to get to us. There was only ONE working with a full bar. It was cool to sit on a swing at the bar with your feet in the sand... read more

Passed on the free coffee and went to Roosters down the street. The service was not good and the whole experience with wasps was not enjoyable.

We've been hanging out at the bar and beach at Bujo's on and off for 15 years. In the 'old days' it was a family favorite -- friendly, smiling, honest, efficient bartenders (come back, please!), an almost 2-for-1 happy hour, okay food, fabulous beach. Not so this last trip. The happy bartenders have been replaced with a petulant, lazy, rude... More

Our hotel had a free continental breakfast of juice, toast, and coffee that was served at Buho's. Never in my life did I think these 3 items could be so bad. The coffee tasted like dirty water, the juice was not juice but some kind of drink mix that was digusting, then 2 pieces of the cheapest bread toast. Service... More

Stayed at Cabanas Maria Del Mar and had to go to this place for continental breakfast and to use Wi Fi. Food pricey and good.

This is hands down the best place not only on Isla for battered fish, but anywhere! And I was have been Catholic my whole life and grew up in Minnesota, I know my way around a Fish Fry!

I'd like to give a review about the food but we were never served or waited on while here. Tried 3 separate times to grab some food and was never waited on. Did grab a beer at the bar, dumped into a plastic cup, warm and overpriced, won't be back. these owners don't have a clue.

DO NOT EAT HERE - DISHONEST MANAGEMENT, STAFF I ate here twice and ordered drinks from here several times over a 4 day period... While the food was just about acceptable (I had fish tacos which were bland, while the fish and chips featured fish sparse on flesh) the service was appalling. Prices were not terrible and the location was... More
