Best resort I’ve ever stayed at. It’s the vacation people dream of. Everything from the amazing beach, the staff, the food, the drinks is top of the line. The island is beautiful and lives up to the name of one happy island. Friendliest people in the world.

1st trip to Aruba and Bucuti & Tara. Celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Everything and everyone on staff was beyond amazing. If you like a beautiful quiet beach - picturesque sunsets - outstanding food and the most amazing attentive thoughtful service anywhere - then Bucuti is for you. Every staff member was excellent and many greeted us by name daily and wished us a happy anniversary. Can’t wait to return.

My wife and I spent the week at Bucuti & Tara to celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary. Even given the extra precautions for covid-19, the staff went out of their way for us to enjoy a "normal" vacation and recharge from as much of the world as you would want. Beach chairs made enjoying fun-in-the-sun even that much better. Flags alert staff to come over to take food/drink orders...and the outdoor bar was always a great pre-dinner spot for us (1/2 off drinks during their happy hours). I will forget a name or two, but the whole staff from breakfast to beach to bar to dinners are on top of everything. Aruba is a "must do" and, if possible, Bucuti & Tara is a "must visit."

My husband and I were slightly nervous to travel back to Aruba (18th visit). Not because of Aruba but we were more hesitant about the airports. I'm so glad we went back. We felt very comfortable traveling and Aruba did a great job keeping everyone safe. We always stay at Bucuti and once again we had an amazing trip. The staff at Bucuti are incredible. You might arrive as a tourist but you will leave as a friend. They greet us with "welcome home". Thank you Frank and Mario for the warm welcome. Then there are countless people who will take amazing care of you; Orville, Robert, Margarita, Aldric, Juan, Karen, Janice, Greg, Archie and so many more who welcome you with a warm smile and exceptional customer service. Bucuti is very romantic with spacious beaches. The food at their restaurant is exceptional! Additionally, there are many good options within walking distance. It’s not a “party scene” at Bucuti but there’s numerous night life options and then you can return to the serene beautiful experience at Bucuti.
