Just got home from a 13 day stay at Buffam's Tropical Haven and as always it was just WONDERFUL! Great weather, Great hosts, (Sherrie & Rick) And a GREAT location! Rick & Sherrie treat us like family and bend over backwards to accommodate their guests.We had the BEST bunch out there: "Italian" Frank, jack of all trades,(really Spanish but looks Italian! lol (Miss you Frank!) Tom, aka "Mr Nesbitt", and Jack & Nancy who had GREAT stories from their night before activities.
I could go on & on about Buffam's but as you can see by their GREAT reviews, so could everyone else. If your a snooty, high rise hotel person, this may not be the place for you. But if you like the REAL Aruban ambiance of an Aruban neighborhood, would like to meet different people and see how different cultures operate, and just come home at night to a nice place and have a bunch of GOOD laughs, then THIS is the place to be!
Before finding Buffam's, we have stayed at the low rises AND the high rises and they just were not for us. And to the ONE person who gave a bad review and said most of the people who write good reviews are their friends I just have to say, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME"!! Just while we stayed out there (and this was our 5th time at Buffam's) we've met people from ALL OVER the States, from the U.K., Spain, Venezuela, and countless other countries. So that "1" person who complained should have been up at the Hyatt or the Radisson paying at least 5 times more than they paid at Buffam's! Some people are just born "complainers" that no one can make happy.
They have 4 units that are ALL nice. We always try to get the back unit as you step out the door and your 2 feet away from that beautiful, warm pool. And Breakfast is also included! If your lucky one morning Sherrie may make you her "Aruban French Toast"! The BEST!!
Their rates are "UNBELIEVEABLE" and there are no hidden fees like a lot of these other places. Soooo, if your NOT a high rise person and are on somewhat of a budget and looking for a nice, CLEAN, place that's NOT crowded and you want some good laughs, Buffam's tropical haven is the place to be. As i'm 61 years old and my spouse is 49 my dream would be for her to take a month off work in the winter and spend 4 or 5 weeks in Aruba. Anyone need a travel partner look me up, lol.
Just to end this review, if your high maintenance, and HAVE to have the best, maybe the high rises are for you. Butttt, if your down to earth, would like to be in a REAL Aruban neighborhood, and want to meet new people from ALL over the world, and get pampered by Sherrie & Rick. Tropical Haven is THE place. Any Questions feel free to contact me.
