Best Experience

Let me start off by saying that my husband and I travel a lot, and we have stayed at many resorts over the years, and we were expecting the usual service. However, we were blown away by the service at Bucuti. As soon as we stepped out of the car onto the property, Frank, the doorman, was there with a huge smile greeting us and waiting to take our luggage. We then met the owner, who had a glass of champagne waiting for us. We were immediately taken to our room and we checked in, in our room. The staff was so friendly and so attentive. We did not encounter one person that was not "happy," which is the island's motto. And Frank, the doorman, it's just impossible not to love him. He strives to make your time there perfect. If you want great restaurant recommendations, just ask Frank. Our best meals on the island were recommended to us by Frank. The rooms were nice sized, well-equipped, and clean. My husband loved the TV that was installed in the bathroom mirror. There was a brief power outage island wide the first day we were there, and it messed up our A/C. Within two to three minutes of us reporting the problem, they had someone in our room making the repairs. I only mentioned that issue because of how quickly they resolved the issue. I was blown away at how quickly they responded. The resort is not large, so everything is close and the amazing beach is just steps away. And the beach set-up is lovely. There are plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The beach service was impeccable. Anything we wanted or needed, we just raised a flag, and someone was there to attend to our needs - from drinks, to food, to a bucket of ice to keep our drinks cool. They would bring around cold towels around, and it was so refreshing on those hot days. This resort caters to couples, no one under 18 allowed. It's quiet and relaxing and not crowded. And the beach, wow, what a breathtaking beach they have. You will have to travel short distances for meals, but taxis are abundant and inexpensive. The resort has Elements, which is a lovely restaurant. If you are wanting a stress-free, first-class service resort to relax and unwind, then Bucuti is the place. I just can't say enough good things about the resort. It was spectacular, and we will be returning.

Beautiful island. Islanders could not be any friendlier. Bacuti and Tara very nice. Rooms were very nice and clean but a little on the warm side. Food on island very good. Would definitely come back and stay at Bacuti and Tara.

A Dream Honeymoon

From the moment we got to the hotel we were treated as nothing less than their most valued customers! Mario was AWESOME!!! He literally held our hands and attended our every need to make sure we got settled in. All of the staff are courteous and very willing to help with whatever your need may be. The Bucuti provided first-class service at its best. The resort was so comfortable that sometimes we did not want to leave their grounds. You literally do not have to because they have every thing you need right there! The room was SOOOOO comfortable. Unfortunately the Bucuti is a kids-free hotel. So next year we may have an addition to our family from their comfort. And trust me, a kids-free honeymoon was just what we needed! The privacy it provides and tranquil grounds made for a relaxing stay. And lastly is their morning breakfast... All I can is Ummmmmmm!!! I highly recommend the Bucuti and Tara for any couple looking to escape. And say Hi to Frank for me. He also made sure we got out of there to make our flight.

SUPER ROMANTIC RESORT

This is our 3rd time staying at the Bucuti and we loved every minute of it. We have been coming to Aruba for over 10 years now and Bucuti is by far the best intimate hotel on the island. As soon as we arrived we were treated like royalty. Daniella greeted us with a warm smile and knowledge of the island and hotel. She was fantastic! We even received some Champagne and a "welcome back basket" sent to our room. The room itself was very nice. The king size bed was super comfortable. The complimentary breakfast included in our plan was delicious! The staff was so nice and friendly every day. The doorman Frankie was a sweetheart. The service was awesome and everybody at the front desk were very helpful. We definitely enjoyed our time spent at the Bucuti and will continue to come back as often as possible to see these sweet Arubians!! Thanks for a wonderful week!!

What's to Love

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is adults-only and caters to romantically minded couples, they're eco-friendly and very quiet. Plus, you'll have impeccable service and enjoy some of the best food on the island.
 

What We'd Change

There is little entertainment in the immediate area, except a casino that is within walking distance - but for many people, the serenity is a plus.
 

Why You Should Go

Couples looking for a quiet upscale location will enjoy it here. Eagle Beach is the best beach in Aruba, is very wide and never crowded.

Hotel Description

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort: Discover Romance, Boutique Style

Imagine an oasis of unparalleled tranquility, nestled on 14 acres of pristine powder white beach. A beach so magnificent that "Dream Beaches of the World" designated it as one of the Caribbean's top ten. Crystal clear turquoise waters, romantic tropical sunsets painting the sky, delicious cuisine to savor and nothing to disturb your peace and serenity. Centered between downtown Oranjestad and Palm Beach on Eagle Beach, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is centrally located near all major attractions. At Bucuti, you get personal service and European charm on a lovely stretch of one of the Caribbean's best beaches, the most secluded part of Eagle Beach. Brides Magazine named this resort one of the top 20 BEST Honeymoon Hotels in the Caribbean.

This is a great Adults Only (18+) hotel, especially if you are looking for a quiet, restful escape. The Tara Beach Suites are perfect for honeymooners. Each suite is located right on the oceanfront, has a big balcony or terrace with beautiful wooden and upholstered furnishings, and the striking king bed allows for an incredible beach and oceanfront view. The resort's frontage on Eagle Beach extends for 200 yards, is 150 yards deep, and features widely spaced beach loungers and umbrellas. A freshwater infinity swimming pool is available and a cool-water tub sits on the pool's sundeck. Motorized watersports are barred in front of the resort, but watersports are available from independent vendors farther north. You can workout in the air conditioned fitness center and stay connected using the hotel's 24-hour Wi-Fi access. Bucuti's full-time concierge staff will organize any sport, watersport or tour for your enjoyment.

Bucuti & Tara Resort is extremely popular with couples because of their determined efforts to maintain peace and quiet. Environmental awareness is another theme. Cactus gardens, palm trees, and expansive lawns maintained with recycled water substitute for water-demanding plants such as flowering bushes. For the sophisticated traveler, head to a nearby spa where they offer a wide variety of treatments with organic and indigenous products. So lay back, relax and enjoy!
