This resort was recommended by a coworker and it was amazing. I loved the cleanliness of the room and the hotel. I completely love the ocean and the beautiful sunsets. Aruba is my second home, I felt very welcomed and special by all of the hotel staff.

My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary and choose Aruba for a number of reasons such as being close to the US, outside the hurricane zone, and safety. We looked at numerous resorts and choose Bucuti & Tara since it was adults only and beachfront. We were originally a little unsure based on the higher price per night, but our experience there was amazing, the place was perfectly maintained everywhere and felt brand new. The staff was all professional and friendly. The way the beach chair reservation and service at the beach is done makes it very simple to spend as little or as much time there as you want. The spa and food were all astounding as well. There was a good mix of honeymooners (maybe 20%), and anniversary (probably 50%), and repeat visitors. I would highly recommend this resort if you are looking for a couples getaway.

Greetings, Lindsey, Happy Anniversary! Our wishes to you for many, many returns. We are so pleased to read that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us in all aspects. You mentioned that you were unsure about our higher rates, which could be a perception. Contrary to other hotels, our rates include all service charges, all Taxes, Full American breakfast buffet Wifi and other inclusions. All hotels in Aruba quote you a room rate, and then one needs to add anywhere between 20 and 25 % service charges and resort fees, plus breakfast and WiFI and whatnot - in the end, our rate would be similar. We do our best to deliver the best service, and you stay at one of the Top Hotels in the world for Quality, Location, and Romance. We do hope to serve you again sometime, Masha Danki, Ewald Biemans

We had the most perfect, relaxing anniversary trip to Bucuti. The beach chairs with umbrellas are so comfortable and we loved the reservation system. The food and service are stellar. Housekeeping was the best we have ever experienced. The cabana dinner was delicious and our server Yolanda offered top notch service. Would love to return in the future!

Bucuti is easily and by far the best resort on the island of Aruba. The meticulous attention to detail is stellar. The staff, other couples, etc. are all super welcoming and they ensure your experience is nothing short of 10/10. We will most definitely be back to Bucuti!

This was our second visit to Aruba and the Bucuti and we can’t imagine staying anywhere else. The service is excellent and the beach set up is perfect. Unlike other spots there will always be an umbrella for you. It is a great location to relax at and still be close enough to other spots if your looking for more nightlife. Adults only is great and allows the pool and hot tub to be open 24 hours!

Bucuti and Tara is absolutely the best place in all of the Caribbean....No one can ever meet up to the high standards Bucuti has for all of their guests. Every guest is treated like Royalty...Every staff member treats you like family....We have been going to Bucuti and Tara year after year....We did miss April of 2020 due to Covid restrictions...we are already booked for April of 2023...This is our home away from home. Some people don't understand why we never try a new place...my answer to that was..."Once you go to Bucuti one time....that's it...you are in love!! A special shout out to Mr. Beimans ..Orville...Marguerite...Anel....Natasha Robert...and Beverly.....to name a few of the Best!! Can not wait to get back to our Heaven on Earth!!

We visited this resort for a 9-day stay in celebration of my 50th birthday. I cannot recommend this resort enough. The beach, rooms, facilities, staff, food, beverage, and other amenities are excellent. All of the staff is top notch - they all know or learn who you are, why you are there, what you like to eat, what you like to drink, where you come from, etc. You feel at home and welcome. It's adults only, but not old-folks only. I left my kids at home and was not interested in hanging out with them here. Good mix of younger to older, American to international. If you are looking for dance floors, late night bars, or casino life, this is not your place. If you are here for comfort, convenience, a perfect beach with amenities, and dedicated staff, this is your spot. We stayed in a Tara suite with an oceanview and I would not change it for anything else. Words truly cannot describe how much I enjoyed this vacation and this resort. I did not want to go home.

We had a great time as always at the Bucuti. We have been coming for years. Everyone there is awesome! We will be going back again later this year. Nothing better than sitting on the beach and looking at the ocean.
