Best Spot on the Planet

From the moment we arrived at Bucuti we were treated like family. Ever single person we encountered was helpful and seemed eager to make our stay enjoyable. I especially enjoyed happy hour with Karen who has a special place in my heart. My husband and I cannot wait to return. Bucuti has become our spot.

we visited Aruba for the 1st time and this place is by far the best on the island many other people at the resort continue to return year after year. It is adults only but if you are traveling without children this is the best place

Perfect!

We had the best time at Bucuti & Tara! All of the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. The beach at Bucuti is also the best.. the sand in the Eagle Beach area is well taken care of and by far the softest we experienced on the entire island. The food at Bucuti was also very excellent. We had the pleasure of trying the Cart Blanche restaurant and it was quite a treat! The room was also very clean and the cleaning staff was very friendly. We were always amazed at how quickly our room would be clean when we'd come back from breakfast.

Wonderful trip

The hotel is on the best beach in Aruba! The staff was excellent and really seemed to care about all of the guests. They just kept asking if they could do anything else to make us happy. There are no kids allowed and the resort is very quiet and laid back. We will go back again and many of the guests had been going back there for years.

Pizza Bob's and Elioti's are right across the street. Both have good food for reasonable prices. Be prepared to eat leisurely at Elioti's.

fun couple getaway

the staff were excellent, the food was great, and the weather was even better. Our Sweet at Tara had a few electrical issues that they couldn't seem to fix, but we learned how to make things work. We hope to return again sometime.

Unbelievable Honeymoon Experience

The hotel was unbelievable! My wife and I loved every second of our experience. First and foremost, the staff was very kind and helpful, and even upgraded us once they fiound out it was our honeymoon. The privacy of the adult only hotel made for a very relaxing honeymoon experience. The complimentary breakfast never disappointed, and their on location restaurant, Pirate's Nest, was unbelievable as well. We ate there twice because we enjoyed the food, service, and the ambiance of the beachfront restaurant. Overall, our honeymoon experience at this hotel was incomparable. We would recommend this to anyone seeking a very nice, relaxing experience. We will be returning, hopefully soon.

First trip to Aruba

Bucuti & Tara Resorts proved to be an outstanding hotel. The staff was superb, very professional and courteous. The location was perfect. Away from all the congestion in the high rise district. The beach and restaurants as well as the overall atmosphere were 5 star!

The French Steakhouse offered a wonderful 3 course meal for about $25 which was excellent. Matthews restaurant also served very good food. Both were located right across the parking lot from the hotel.

DOESN'T GET BETTER THAN THIS !!!

Location was fantastic. Best beach I have ever been on. Beautiful water,awesome beach chairs,friendly staff. Short ride to the high rise district and downtown. Ate at the French Steakhouse twice. It's right across the street from the Bacuti. The food and service was great.Ate breakfast everyday at Elements on the beach at the Bacuti. What a great way to start the day...Food was great and staff a lot of fun. Enjoyed shopping in the high rise district. A lot of vendors outside. Took a jeep tour....It was a little rough but well worth it. We went on the 10 hour tour which was a little long but they have shorter tours you can take. I will stay at the Bacuti when we go back. It really doesn't get better......Been on many beach vacations, but this was the best all the way around. Can't say enough about the staff at the Bacuti!!!
