This was our second visit to this resort. We stayed there in fall 2017 and liked it so much we decided to try again this year. In short, it was again a fabulous week. We love this place because it has a very quiet and elegant atmosphere - perfect for a couple wanting a romantic beach week. We mostly stayed on the grounds with the exception of one day when we took an art mural tour down to San Nicolas. This is not a problem because the restaurant, Elements, offers a good variety of high quality cuisine and we never had the same entree more than once. The beach chair reservation system is a big improvement from the old process whereby people came down at 7am, threw towels on chairs and then did not show up until noon. You now go online at 5pm the day before to request a specific chair/umbrella location. Much more civilized although it is a competition from 5:00 to 5:01 to get the chairs closest to the ocean. The level of attention and service from the entire staff is superior in every respect and we had a terrific week. After staying at a variety of places on several islands, Bucuti is one of two locations that we will content ourselves with to get our annual island beach fix in the future.

We have stayed at Bucuti Tara many times. This resort is absolutely the best for couples. Spotless rooms, king size beds, balconies, walk in shower, quiet! Beach facilities are made up fresh every day, cabanas are reserved the evening before, lounge cushions, uncrowded locations. No radios, no smoking, adults only.

This was our second trip to Aruba and Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort and it has become our "go to" for special occasions. The resort is on the amazing Eagle Beach and the Tara Suites are simply beautiful. Make sure you read about this resort before booking. It is an adult only resort and very quiet - just what my husband and I were looking for. The service is excellent. The food is superb. The staff is friendly and exceptionally helpful. We are already planning our third trip to this lovely island and fabulous resort. And a last word about covid - 100% of the staff is fully vaccinated and the resort uses the most up to date cleaning methods including UV lights to sanitize guest rooms. The resort also provides on-site covid testing for returning to the US, which was very helpful.

Thank you, Jennifer; we all look forward to serving you again - for the third time. Repeat visitors are such a wonderful compliment to our services. We are so grateful for the many who visit us year after year - over 70 % of our visitors return again and again. So many of them return after their honeymoon to celebrate their anniversaries.

Hotel and resort were perfect. It was clean and relaxing. The employees were very friendly and accommodating. It was the best vacation we had ever been and would have loved to come back but they changed their Covid protocols. Sad.

Dear Futuremortons, Firstly, our congratulations and may your Honeymoon be eternal. As to our Covid Protocols, we did not change; we added a layer of additional protection. Our policy to request a vaccination certificate is not intended to discriminate. On the contrary, this policy is designed to protect our internal and external clients to the maximum. As the medical and scientific community informed that vaccinations were the best way to operate safely, we implemented this requirement too. This decision was reinforced because we could only welcome guests from certain countries if and when both our associates and ALL our guests would be fully vaccinated. We host visitors from many countries and wish to continue to do so in the future. We hope to serve you in the future and thank you for this lovely review. Ewald Biemans
