“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We just returned from a week at Bucuti and we will be back! The staff went above and beyond to guarantee our stay was relaxing and comfortable. Our room was spotless and well maintained. The breakfast layout was terrific with plenty of fresh food choices for all tastes. Eagle Beach was clean and not crowded. We enjoyed both movie nights on the beach. Bucuti & Tara Resort met all our expectations! I would highly recommend it to our friends and family!

Room Tip: Rooms on the main floor are terrific because you can walk out your outside door and head immediately...

Everything Bucuti and Tara has to offer is off the charts. The food was excellent, the service was better. Stunning beach, the room was excellent, and the weather was superb. We felt safe at all points and even walked off-site on multiple occasion to get a cup of coffee or walk to a local restaurant. We stayed in a ocean-view bungalow... awesome room, good views, beautiful bathroom, awesome deck. Our stay was perfect!

Just returned from our Weddingmoon in Aruba. We chose Bucuti based on its location (low-rise area) and its small size - a guarantee for peace and quiet. The hotel met all our expectations: the staff are extremely friendly and only too willing to assist. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean, the beach is beautiful and the rooms (Tara Suites) are spacious. The new restaurant (Elements) is excellent too and the food is beautifully presented on your plate. Do we need to mention the delicious cocktails and the beachfront bar?!
We have seen quiet a bit of the world and been to many outstanding hotels; Bucuti will be added to this list. We are very demanding and it's difficult for many hotels to live up to our expectations, but Bucuti did just that and we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: The Tara Suites have a separate sleeping & sitting area.

Had a great time at Bucuti and will be back for sure. Staff was great and the beach was not overcrowded and was gorgeous. Loved the view from our Tara suite and am so glad we chose to stay there. Concierge was extremely helpful and pointed us in the right direction on excursions and dinner. They even helped us with a reservation we made outside the hotel and we got special seating. They have a return customer in us for sure!

We spent a week at Bucuti for our honeymoon in August 2013, and it was the perfect getaway. From the very beginning, the staff at Bucuti were accommodating. The concierge assisted me even before I booked our honeymoon to inform me of all the amenities that Bucuti had to offer. We stayed there in 2009 and loved it then, but the improvements they’ve made in the last 4 years have made it even better!! It was almost as if the staff had been prepped that we were coming. As soon as we got out of the taxi and gave the porter our name, he congratulated us on our wedding and brought us right inside where they had champagne waiting. We landed in Aruba at 11:30 am and were unpacked and on the beach by 2:00 pm thanks to the hard-working staff at Bucuti!

The room and views are incredible, and the daily buffet breakfast has everything you could possibly want. We stayed in one of the 4 penthouses, so we had our own private palapa on the beach. There were 2 lounge chairs and a table and chairs to eat at under the palapa, so we never really had to get up except to go in the water. The sand bar waiters were amazing- they took our orders & delivered food/drinks quickly, and they even took our water bottles and filled them with fresh water and ice (without us even asking).

They think of absolutely everything to make their guests comfortable, and I can’t wait to go back!!

My husband and I spent 7 nights at the Bucuti & Tara Suites for our honeymoon from August 5-12. We had such an incredible experience both in Aruba and at the Bucuti! The hotel is beautiful, with the amazing white sandy beach, comfy lounge chairs and spacious rooms. We absolutely loved our time there and were so sad to leave. This was our third time to Aruba, and I don't know that we will stay anywhere else after our visit!

The staff was very friendly, always accommodating and making us feel like royalty. We especially thought Mario went out of his way to make our stay extra special. The concierge was also very helpful with answering any questions and making reservations. We got married in Aruba on August 3 (at another family resort) and the staff went out of their way to freeze the top tier of our wedding cake for us. They even boxed it up and brought it up to our room for us!

The service, staff, and beauty of the resort made our honeymoon such a relaxing and special trip! It was really nice to see the owner walking around and talking to guests about their stay- that's the first time we've ever experienced that! Thanks for an amazing trip!

We had visited Aruba twice before. Bucuti proved to be so far superior to anything we had experienced before, that we would never go anywhere else in the future. Friendliness, service, availability, cleanliness, excellence of food: all added up to an unforgettable experience. We have already booked another visit and are looking forward to our return. Every moment we spent at this resort: beach, restaurant, concierge services, relaxing in our room: all contributed to a perfect anniversary celebration.

Room Tip: There really aren't any undesirable rooms. We were in the garden view Bucuti building and were...
