Love this boutique hotel in the low rise area. They have done renovations and have not visited since but it looks lovely. They are always friendly, accommodating, the beach is wonderful, rooms very nice. Definitely recommend. Aruba is safe island and love the food! Casino across the stree & bus stop nearby.

We went to the Bucuti to have a drink at their bar at sunset. We had had lunch at the bar the previous year and so didn't think anything of coming to the bar at sunset for drinks. We were told by the bartender that we were not welcome to order drinks or to have food at the bar there... More

We just got back from a week at this resort. It was outstanding! The grounds and beach were immaculate. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious and all are a short walk to the beach. Every morning I would ask my husband what he wanted to do that day and his response was stay here and hit the beach. There... More

Thank you for your wonderful comments on the resort and our incredible associates . You are right - we developed the resort by asking customers what they would like to see and not to have and this is the end product. Guest focus groups and serious listening and asking questions and reading every comment and suggestion brought us where we... More

When we were checking out of Bucuti and Tara, someone asked us for any feedback we had on something we might change. We couldn't think of anything. Nothing. I wouldn't have changed a thing. The staff was the most helpful, most friendly staff I've ever encountered at any hotel. The beach seemed to be the one on the entire island... More

We stayed at Bucuti & Tara for 7 nights at the end of October. It was truly heaven on earth, can't deny that. We stayed in a standard Bucuti room to save a little extra spending money on dinners. The room itself was very nice & clean. We loved the rain shower. However, the beds were terrible. The linen felt... More

Dear Shellkate, We are grateful for your compliments and toke the liberty to look into some of the not so complimentary points mentioned in your review.

This resort really does live up to it's standard of excellence. The staff is happy, helpful, accommodating, knowledgeable and ready to please. We stayed in a Tara suite on the beach level and it was the best location on any beach I have ever stayed. The drinks are very expensive but we stopped on the way from the airport and... More

Thank you - we feel good and are grateful for your wonderful comments. Perhaps, to clarify to other readers as to why beverages and food are slightly more expensive here in Aruba, then in the US. We purchase everything in the US at US prices - add shipping - freight and insurance, some taxes and a profit for the local... More

If the #1 rule in real estate is Location, Location, Location.....then Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts ("Bucuti") wins the prize! Bucuti is located on the widest and most beautiful section of Eagle Beach. Pristine soft white sand and turquoise colored waters make this resort a beach lovers' paradise. We've seen the crowds and narrower beach in the high rise section... More

Greetings from Sunny Aruba, You certainly picked a top beach - Tripadvisor sometime ago named Eagle Beach as one of the top ten beaches in the world and Bucuti is located exactly at the widest point of the incredible stretch of pristine beach.

Thank you ! We are so happy to have converted you and that you prefer to vacation in a resort rather then on a fuel burning mega-vessel with loads of passengers disgorging at every destination.

Stayed here for our honeymoon for five nights in early November. Had a really wonderful overall experience. I can see why this hotel gets top billing on TripAdvisor.
