This is a place for couples, but not groups of couples. It is very quiet. If that matches what you are looking for, you will not have a better experience anywhere on the island. Everything was amazing. The staff, the rooms, the beach, the breakfast. It was simply the best experiecne. At night we would venture out for some music or laughs. I will be going back!

3rd visit to our new favorite destination. Stayed in Tara Suite and just love the view from the balcony. The staff are just wonderful people. The cleanliness at this resort is off the charts. Daily housekeeping gets an A+. So enjoy sitting by the beach bar having a cocktail and appetizer. Gym is quite large for a small resort. Beach umbrellas are plentiful and easy to reserve. We enjoyed dinner at Senses, a 5* experience, as well as pizza and a draft beer at Pizza Bob’s (lol) which is just outside the property. This resort is as close to perfection as possible. Yep May 2023 is already booked for us. 😎

Truly the best on the island. Quiet, eloquent, luxurious, and only a brief trip to the high rise area for the other kinds of island life. The staff and the attention to detail are above and beyond. We were greeted with champagne and a thorough rundown of the facilities, along with some quick recommendations of where to visit for food and fun. We then got a tour of our room and the lower half of the building. Truly a most spectacular view of the ocean from our room (we stayed on the Tara side). We never heard any other guests from our room, we always had access to a great beachside spot via the Bucuti app reservation system, and we were never without service when we were on premise. In the final hours, we were also able to use their complimentary dryer to dry our bathing suits from having one last dip into the ocean. The concierge is always available to help with taxis, or other services and recommendations. They were remarkably fast and efficient with all of their offerings. Never had such quality treatment before. We had several meals at Elements and even one night at the absolutely incredible Senses. Highly recommend Senses for those looking for an exquisite 4 hour long tasting/pairing where a chef and team take you on a educational journey through the offerings of that evening. 10/10 recommend the whole experience. Though I hate to admit any faults, their spa is a 0/10 recommend. Their masseuses lack the education of a quality massage and the facility is essential a closet. Bucuti needs to rework this offering entirely.

Thank you, Sean, We truly appreciate you finding us to be the best on this Island - so did thousands of previous visitors to our resort, which allowed us to be the number one rated resort on Aruba for the last 22 years. Just recently, Bucuti & Tara swept the Tripadvisor awards with World's 25 Best Hotels, World's best in Romance and World's best on the Water resort from 1.4 million hotels registered on Tripadvisor. We were also awarded Caribbean's number one Romantic Resort and number two Caribbean's Best Resort. We are now working on a new Spa with all the facilities you are missing. We are so glad you loved your stay with us, and we hope to serve you again, Masha Danki, Ewald

This place is amazing! (This will be long) This was our 1st real solo couple getaway in 15 years. Planned for our 30th anniversary/ 2nd honeymoon. We booked this resort because it was adults only, not just adults only but mostly all couples, we didn't want to stay at an adults only (party spring break hotel), we wanted peace and quiet, and this was perfect. From pre arrival concierge (Angela) finding me a photographer and hair and makeup for a photo shoot. The very tall handsome doorman (who's name I can't remember I'm so sorry) who actually unloaded our car of luggage and everytime we left to hotel he was there w a fist bump and a smile. To the very welcoming Mayra who was so kind and helpful in booking excursions and helping us with a room change. We booked 5 nights and could only be there on specific days, the Tara suites were booked for our 1st night so we stayed in the garden rooms and the next day , the staff moved all our stuff to the Tara suites for us. We were welcomed to our room with a happy anniversary sign, champagne, champagne glasses (that we forgot to take with us 😢) snacks and reusable bucuti canteen's which I love. Breakfast overlooking the ocean was great Wagner and Sydney were wonderful. Georgia from housekeeping was wonderful and came quickly to vacuum up all the sand that fell out of my swimsuit (ugh even after using the outside shower 🤣) All of the staff were not just nice but genuinely kind. Thankyou so much for a great getaway. I wish trio advisor would let me post more photos. If you are debating on which rooms to book here, spring for the Tara suites, being able to sit and look at the ocean from your balcony is everything!

The reviews are true. Complete relaxation and top notch service. We celebrated my wife’s birthday and could not have asked for a better trip. From entry, everything was taken care of. Champagne on arrival. Spacious clean room overlooking the water. Friendly staff who made sure you were taken care of and appreciated. Bartenders so attentive and created a great environment during awesome happy hour deals. Breakfast included. No hassle beach chair reservations on white sands and clear blue water. My wife and I travel often and rarely revisit a location. And on the way home we were already looking to book again next year. The trip was exactly what we needed.
