We loved our stay at Bucuti! Staff, hotel, beach food, everything was awesome! Will definitely be back.

Perfect in every way! The room, the beach, the pool, the food, the ambiance, and the hospitality of the staff make this the perfect vacation spot for adults.

Best hotel ever! Wonderful staff, food, hospitality, Beach! One of a kind

Wonderful low-key no hassle adult only hotel with friendly staff delivering high quality service.

We had such a great time at Bucuti & Tara. Everything was perfect- the weather, the staff, the accommodations and the island. Just what we needed before the holiday craziness.

The Resort was exceptional -- great location, fabulous beach, well-appointed rooms with good views, and very helpful and attentive staff.

great location, best part of eagle beach. great staff. they need to re-institute the smoking policy.

This is the best place to relax, and enjoy the fresh air and one of the best beaches in the world. Easy flight from NY (5 hours non-stop) and the drive from the airport to the hotel took 20 minutes using a rental car. When we arrived at the Bucuti and Tara, we were met very heartily by Frankie, the doorman. Entering the reception, we met with our personal concierge, Bjorn, who was very friendly and informative. He served us a glass of champagne and escorted us to our room on the third floor of the Tara building with a spectacular view of the beach an ocean. Bjorn went through all of the amenities and details about this adult-only resort. He left us his business card with his direct line and told us to call him directly, if we needed any more information including dinner recommendations and reservations, day trips, site seeing, fishing, salons, and shopping. Our room was one of the most hygienic we have ever had. The air conditioning system and dehumidifier produced superior air quality. We didn't hear any sound or conversation from any of the adjoining rooms or the hall. The mattress on our king-size bed was more comfortable than our own Temperpedic at home. The maid service was perfect, leaving the room each day impeccably clean. Turn down service was offered each night. Our suite had very comfortable furniture, three TV's, beautiful decor and fast, free WiFi. I borrowed an IPad from the hotel for our whole stay at no additional cost. All of the staff were very friendly and kind, always greeting you with a Hello and a smile. Our personal concierge, Bjorn was able to get us a reservation for dinner at their Carte Blanche restaurant for an exclusive gourmet meal with matching wine at each of the five course. Carte Blanche has only one seating for 14 guests, Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7 pm. The most memorable staff person was Bjorn, who made us feel we had a new friend in Aruba! We are looking forward to our next stay at the Bucuti and Tara and will try to book one of its four penthouse rooms.

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

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.

differently will return. all staff was approachable, and informed. maybe lite music in pool area.

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.

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.

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.

Perfect Beach, white sand and gentle surf. Hotel service was excellent. Go for the Tara suites, the view is worth it.

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!

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!!!

The resort was clean, friendly, and located on the best beach.

this is an over 18 years old only hotel, so there is a relaxed quite atmosphere. We stayed for our 3rd time in the suites,each with an nobstructed view out over the well spaced new unbrellas and shaise to the ocean. Sunsets can be fab. the bed area seperates from the sitting area by a sliding door. The room is very nice. There is a new gym and a small fantistic but EXPENSIVE resturant. The main resturant will be completed by fall and looks beautifull. the staff is hard working and genuinely friendly Down sides; AC is not very good, the dehumidifer is very loud. the 2 TV's get lousy reception. If your looking for an active vacation don't come here, it's relaxing you'll not want to move. you can walk to a few good resturants. People claimed the chioce beach shaises before 7 am then never showed up till afternoon. There were compliants so I hope that changes. it was very windly which drove us to the pool it's ok, the ocean is better. All in all we love the place & plan to go back again next year or sooner.
