We just got back from our 2 week stay in Aruba. Our 1st 8 days were at Buffam's, and the final 6 days were spent at the Holiday Inn. This was OK with us, because when we booked our vacation originally, Buffam's only had the 8 days available and we thought we could spend our last 6 days in a... More

Spent a one-night stay in Aruba at Buffam's Tropical Haven. Rick and Sherrie were excellent hosts. They sent valuable information prior to our arrival, and were very accommodating upon our arrival. The property was cozy and well maintained. A great value for the price! The location is less than one mile from the beach; however, if you want to see... More

Spent 5 days with Rick and Sherrie. The accommodations are clean and well maintained. Nothing fancy, but a great value. Rick and Sherrie are friendly and helpful. They helped us with finding local places to eat and visit. Very pleasant stay with wonderful people. We will be staying here again. You probably want a rental car. Most places of interest... More

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
