“One happy island for sure!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Bucuti was recommended by friends whom we travelled with and we will definitely be back. We were welcomed upon check-in by resort manager Debra and a glass of champagne. Connie informed us about the various restaurants etc on the resort. We were then escorted to our room which was very comfortable.

The beach is absolutely gorgeous and the water's color is amazing. We swam in the ocean and the pool. Never had trouble getting loungers on the beach and even ordered lunch one day by flipping up the flag on the side.

Happy hour was always a fun time. The staff were always friendly and helpful. They all went out of their way to make sure everything was going well. Can't say enough about the people!

A fabulous and relaxing vacation.

Bucuti is the best if you want a quiet, clean beach with immediate individual attention. If you like a smaller poolside experience this is the place. Also the attention to details makes this boutique resort stand out in the Eagle Beach area. Fun casino a five minute walk. Well worth the money.

Room Tip: The garden side of the Bucuti on first floor or above for an oceanview without the other

We went to Aruba to celebrate our 25 th anniversary and chose the Bucuti Tara beach. And we are very happy that we made that choice. The whole stay from the begiining to the end was excellent. The staff at the reception are very frendly, Excellent breakfast at the beach restaturant couldn't be better. Our celebration of our anniversary at the beachside restaurant watching the sunset was incredible. We absolutely recommend this hotel.

Our first visit to Caribbean and we were not disappointed - Aruba is a beautiful island full of very friendly people - we felt completely safe. We chose the adult only Bucuti and found it was all we wanted - peaceful, excellent service the staff could not do enough for us especially Sali, Althea at breakfast, Mario and Joel too. Even though Bucuti is about 10 mins from the capital, we were amazed by how many places to eat we found within a 5 minute walk - we will definitely return one day Helen and Ian

Being from Minnesota, my wife and I were looking for guaranteed sun, warmth, and great hospitality. We heard about Aruba from others. My wife used TripAdvisor and other sources to settle on Bucuti Resorts. This is truly the most amazing place on the planet. Great rooms, great service, great food, great beaches, great weather, and great people on Aruba. This is a "can't miss" place. It is a country that all people speak at least four languages with English as one of them. They have master chefs everywhere. There are no currency issues. The taxi drivers are honest and not expensive. Eagle Beach is absolutely gorgeous! We never fought for towels or beach location. The pool is spectacular. Our Jeep trip around the island, which is 3 miles by 19 miles, was fun and non-threatening. Bucuti and Aruba are truly "must do" destinations.

Superb cheerful service, champagne check in, great housekeeping,friendly prompt food and bar service. Groundskeepers stopped to chat. Everyone cared that we were happy and well taken care of. The best clean beach, spacious padded lounge chairs, peaceful. NO KIDS is a big plus. Outstanding breakfast buffet to get our perfect days started. We met new friends at TWO daily happy hours to share side trip tips. It is absolutely an outstanding boutique hotel and a beautiful, clean and safe island. Easy to get around walking, taxi or bus. We will go back!

Loved our stay at the Bucuti. Breakfast was the best we've had in the Carribean. Good quality food
With lots of choices. Eagle beach is one of the best we've ever been to. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful at every turn. The concierge service was
Excellent and helped us make all of our offsite reservations. Aruba is not cheap but anyone
looking for consistent quality in food and drinkable water should definitely consider it,and if peace and quiet is your thing the Bucuti is the place to stay. Nightlife options are even within walking distance and there is an aura of safety about Aruba that makes you feel comfortable and welcome.

Room Tip: All rooms were good according to everyone we met.
