We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Bucuti and Tara beach resort and it was perfect in every way. Everything they say about B&T is true, it's 1st place ranking is well deserved. Keep up the good work!

My husband and I recently returned from Aruba. Our stay at Bucuti & Tara was fantastic! The staff is extremely customer-service oriented. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The concierge desk did an excellent job of booking excursions and dinner reservations for us. The resort and the beach weren't crowded. The atmosphere was upscale but casual. We liked that the resort... More

This is my fourth time to Aruba and the fourth time at the Bucuti and Tara. Over the past four year the hotel remains at the top of my list. From the attentive friendly staff, cleanliness of the rooms and the biggest/cleanest beach in Aruba, this place is by far my place of choice on the island. I am 33... More

Every positive thing you read about this hotel is right....but it just doesn't do it justice. This was by far the best resort we have ever stayed at. What we first thought was just the staff trying to make a good first impression turned out to be just the way they do business. I won't call out anyone by name... More

We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at Bucuti and Tara. From arrival to checkout we did not run into any problems. Frank the door man was there to welcome us and was there to say goodbye. We were overwhelmed with the reception we received and with the champagne toast. Bjorn escorted us to our room and gave us an overview of... More

First let me say that I do not recommend this hotel for children. There are not enough amenities for children, also this hotel is in the beginning of the hotel strip so the major center with all the restaurants, nightlife and attractions is a good walk down the strip. With that said - if you want to avoid the mega... More

Please allow me to clarify to prospective readers ourTripAdvisor review site! Thank you for your complimentary write up, but when reading this Review, we have the feeling of mistaken identity as this sentence for example does not apply to Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort: I quote "this hotel is in the beginning of the hotel strip so the major center...

Every year we celebrate our anniversary in the Caribbean. We are trying a different island each year. I always want the trip to be special and use Travel Advisor to insure that.

Well they say you get what you pay for, and in this case it's absolutely true. It may cost slightly more to stay here than the neighboring all inclusive spots, buts it soon becomes apparent why. From the minute you arrive the special attention shows, wonderful champagne arrival, personal tour of the resort, the luxury suite room was wonderful right... More
