We stumbled upon the Bugaloe last year while vacationing in Aruba and looked forward to going again this year for happy hour and hearing the singing waitstaff. The singing was fine, but the service was absolutely terrible! We sat for at least 15 minutes before anyone came to our table. Our waitress was very unfriendly. The other tables nearby were... More

Dear SusieQ, Thank you for coming back to Bugaloe and taking the time to write this review. It makes us said you did not have the same great experience from last year, because of the service. Unfriendly service is unacceptable to us, could you therefore please let us know when you exactly visited Bugaloe? Once again, we appreciate you sharing... More

This is exactly what a beach bar should be like. Weathered wooden structure, furniture and fittings on a small pier with tables right at the water's edge. The staff are informal, friendly and fun. Didn't eat there but the food on other tables looked great.

Stayed at the Hilton last week and this bar was a great place and reasonable prices for lunch and drinks. Joey made great mojhitos with Havana Club rum. Tyjs was friendly also, and so was rest of staff. Drinks range from $5 to $10, $3 beers and most meals for lunch 8 to 12 bucks. Sitting on the end of... More

We visit Aruba 2-3 times a year and always make sure to visit Bugaloe's at least 3 times per visit! The waitresses and bartenders are amazingly friendly and the atmosphere is so fun. They have live bands, karaoke and dance nights there so there is always something different. We love the Grouper Salad, ribs, sandwiches and appetizers. They have larger... More
