Yes it is on the beach...so that is great for some. But the food is so so...not great. The service is very slow, small portions and they do just enough to get by for their customers. Example ...3 people...they brought 2 meals and the last when we were almost done. If we would have waited the first meals would be... More

We sat down thinking it was a beautiful location right on the beach. We wanted a quick bite to eat as we only had a short time on the island to explore. The service was so slow. Considering we only ordered a club sandwich and burrito we expected it to take a short times it took 20 minutes to get... More

The location and ambiance at Buhos is awesome. The service was quite slow but once waited on the drinks were good. Did not try the appetizers but people we met at bar said they were pretty good - just slow service. would definitely go back for the location

Our hotel gave us vouchers to go here for breakfast. The first day it took a long time for a server to show up at our table, and we ordered a fruit plate along with our free toast, and it had very small amounts of 4 fruits, watermelon, cantaloupe, banana and ..something else...we were disappointed in the lack of tropical...

Beverages starting from 30 pesos. Grande Limonade is not to be missed. Fish taco could be better :( Chicken soup is very good. The place has wi-fi. Restrooms miss cleaning and taps need some good pressure.

The best part about this place is the beach view. Birds were stealing peoples food, wait staff was very slow and unattentive, food was pricey and not worth the money or the wait

Never was asked to make an order but we would have. Even so, had complimentary coffee, juice and toast which was very nice.

One of the first places we visited on our first visit to Isla was Buho's.... it's a nice, relaxing, comfy place to eat breakfast or just lounge in the beach chairs and sip a drink. There is yoga at certain times of the day. The bar, however, could use some work.... hard to get a bartender at certain times. Yachts... More
