My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bucuti & Tara Resort for 5 nights in May 2017 and fell absolutely in love with the resort. We went to celebrate my graduation and upon arrival they greeted us not only with a glass of champagne, but a whole complimentary bottle in our room to celebrate which was a great way to...

This was our third time to Bucuti & Tara, and I honestly can't say enough about this resort. The accommodations are beautiful. They are presently renovating the Tara side of the resort (which was a tad bit noisy at times, but nothing too crazy). The service here (and probably what keeps us going back) is top notch. The employees go...

Wow! I don't know where to begin! This is truly an unbelievably romantic resort! It is quiet and immaculately clean! The room is beautiful, the beds super comfy and the employees so personable! Breakfast was great! Something different each morning. Omelets made to order, fresh pineapple, dragonfruit, mango, smoked salmon and smoked trout and pastries. Also, the restaurant is right...

This was my first visit to Aruba and to the Bucuti & Tara Resort. It was like something out of a magazine! White sand beach with beautiful amenities, friendly staff, great food, and waiters serving ice cold drinks right to your sun bed. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating.

This was our third visit to the Bucuti and Tara resort. Again we were impressed by all of the people who work there. Everyone we met was always friendly, helpful, and tried to make our stay special. Previously we stayed in the Tara suites which are being refurbished now, so we booked a garden view room in the Bucuti. Our...

Just got back from a week at this amazing hotel. It is located on the most beautiful beach in Aruba, we were informed of this by our taxi driver on the way in. He was right.

You've heard it said, and the book DreamBeaches of the World and Tripadvisor both among many others, named our stretch of beach top of the World. Unequivocally! We are proud of it and like to show off - please forgive our lack of modesty. We do hope to serve you again sometime and say Masha Danki, Ewald Biemans
