It's a bar/eatery on a pier so don't expect fine dining but for what it is, I loved it. It was way better than a similar place in a nearby hotel that's for sure! We welcomed the affordable breakfasts in the shade with great music! We went out at night too and liked it as a bar as well.

This was a short walk from our resort and was great. They have a lot to choose from in the menu and the prices were great. We ate here twice and we stayed at an all inclusive resort!!

It's fun to eat on a pier! Open-air and beach casual. I have no complaints about the food or drinks either! We had grilled fish sandwiches and Bugaloe Fries (curly fries with taco toppings - very filling). Fun place!

Bugaloe is by far the best beach bar on Aruba's gorgeous Palm beach!! There's always something happening!! We especially like Sunday early to late evening when the fantastic Equator Band is playing....the absolute best!!

So wish we visited here nearer the start of our holiday. Cracker of a wee beach bar next to the RIU's and the Hilton. We went for cocktails at happy hour and stayed for the sunset. The staff were singing and created a nice atmosphere. We didn't eat here but the portions served to folk around us looked amazing. Great... More

This place is great. Right on the beach next to the Hilton. Good food, drinks, service & entertainment. Perfect spot to catch the sunset. Staff members do karioke followed by a live band.

This palm-thatched oasis rests on a pier jutting out into the Caribbean. It's on the southern end of Palm Beach between the Riu and the Hyatt hotels. I've only been there in the off-hours, early afternoon or late night. I've never gone for the music or festivities. My pleasures here are more solitary - my idea is to experience a... More
