The restaurant/bar is on a pier out over beach/water, open air breezy noisey with chatter, and music. Food portions are generous and fairly priced. Wait staff buzz around and help one another. Located between two high rise hotels on a GREAT beach.

Didn't expect much from this basic pier bar/restaurant, but the food was soooo good that we returned for their ceviche every single day. Great vibe, amazing views.

It is one thing to be busy and short staffed, but when the staff walks right by you and ignores you that is plain rude. A quick “I’m sorry we are very busy and will be right with you” goes a long way. We walked...More

Bugaloe is located at De Palm Pier between the Riu Palace Hotel and Hilton Resort. This is where Dunkin Donuts was located, they moved however Bugaloe is still there :-).

Yes, at the street across the Riu Palace Hotel or at the parking lot opposite of the Hilton. There is a path right in between the Riu and Hilton leading right up to Bugaloe which is located at De Palm Pier.
