My husband and I just got home from a week's stay at the Bucuti. We traveled with my brother and his wife. After 9 trips to Aruba (this being our 9th) this was only our 2nd stay on Eagle Beach as we had stayed at the Divi in 2007. We usually stay in the high rise area but decided to... More

If you want to feel like you died and went to heaven, this is the place to go! We have visited here many times, and it always gets better.

Wow, my wife and I just returned from the Tara & Bucuti and experienced the absolute best anniversary vacation we have ever had. The Staff was exceptional, courteous and amazingly professional.

My new wife and I were recommended Aruba, and the Bucuti, by our travel agent. We hadn't really considered Aruba as a destination, but we were very glad that we did! PRE-ARRIVAL We liaised with the hotel a number of times before arrival, and on most occasions we spoke to Madeline, who is one of the most helpful concierges we... More

We knew after our first visit to the Bucuti that it wouldn't be our last, and our 2nd visit did not disappoint! Recent renovations to the restaurant and fitness center were welcome improvements to an already stunning property. The staff are warm, welcoming and dedicated to insuring that every guest has an amazing time. I cannot think of a better... More

Just the facts: Pros: Friendly staff, clean and well-appointed rooms, free breakfast (high quality), decent gym, great beach, free wifi. Cons: Gift shop had no laundry detergent even though laundry facilities are part of the advertised features, nice high def TVs with no high def content, wifi bandwidth is good, but you have to sign in practically EVERY time you...

Well, having stayed at Bucuti for two weeks, I can honestly say we have. Of course EagleBeach is the best beach on the Island but Bucuti tops it off with a warm blanket of hospitality, and PERSONAL service. Special people in the Sand Bar & the Elements restaurant (and the amazing natural and organic food of course), at the reception... More
