The hotel was gorgeous, the staff was amazing and attentive, and immaculately maintained. The rooms were spacious and the owner was even walking around during breakfast service to see how the stay was going. great comfortable beach chairs - and plenty of them so there was no need to fight for a spot. If you wanted a spot on the first row of the beach, you had to wake up early - but there were plenty of chairs for everyone.
My only complaint - and this doesn't really have anything to do with the hotel - was that there were SO MANY SMOKERS. and there was no non-smoking/smoking sections. So we would sit down for a nice relaxing lunch, and then have someone sit right next to us smoking cigarette after cigarette. it was disgusting. the rooms are smoke free, but the restaurant/beach bar/beach are all fair game for smokers, so unless you wanted to sit in your room all day, there was no getting away from it.
If we go back to Aruba, we would definitely stay at the Bucuti. A MUCH more civilized and relaxing vacation vs. staying in the high-rise area.
