ocean. The room was just as it was pictured on the website, so it was no surprise that it was nice. I wouldn't say it was "amazing" but it was certainly everything we needed and expected. Truly, we didn't spend much time there at all anyhow. The bed was unbelievably comfortable. normally, I am ready to come home to sleep... More

After Curacao and Bonaire my husband and I spent five days in Aruba. We chose a Tara Beach Suite at the Bucuti Beach Resort because of all the favourable reviews in Tripadvisor. Our reception was efficient and pleasant - although it took a long time until the receptionist had explained everything and we were shown to our rooms, considering we... More

We read great reviews of the Bucuti online before our trip and booked based on those reviews. We had a great time on our vacation but unlike lots of the reviews on here, I can't agree that the Bucuti is perfect. We found that the staff for the most part was friendly, but certainly not overly so. We commented to... More

Bucuti would have been a place that I never would have considered had I not read all the raving reviews online. Everyone on the internet claimed that Bucuti was not only the best place in Aruba, but also the best place in the Caribbean. After reading all these reviews, I was nervous that I had my expectations set too high.... More

In terms of a relaxing, luxurious and restful vacation, Bucuti Beach Resort and the entire island of Aruba set the bar for my wife and I when we think "relaxing vacation in paradise". We came here in July of 2004 for our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a more relaxing pleasant place to stay. After a long 8 hour... More

We visited Aruba for 8 nights for our Honeymoon. The weather in Aruba is great, beaches are awesome. Bucuti is a very nice resort. We stayed in the Tara Suites, only complaint is the rooms are a little musty. Outside of that they are right on the ocean, furnished well, and ultra quiet. Bettina the concierge is awesome, the staff... More

The Facilities Just spent our honeymoon at Bucuti. Stayed for 6 nights. Incredible location and nice hotel. Our room was not ready when we arrived at the hotel. However, they gave us champagne and treated us great. In addition, it gave us a little time to get familiar with the grounds. As it turned out, it was well worth the... More

This is a great place for couples! It is not as crowded as the other big and popular hotels around the High Rise area. There are plenty of space to relax and enjoy the sun. The staff are friendly and great! The beach is gorgeous! Check out my photos! Bucuti is a small resort. It is simple but yeah romantic.... More
