This was our 4th visit to Bucuti, and to be frank it's almost impossible to put into words how wonderful the overall experience is. Each year, before we depart, we are sure to make a future reservation. We are now booked all the way out to 2020! As much as we love the facility, it's the staff that makes this...

My husband and I decided on Aruba for our honeymoon and were originally staying at another resort. After two days of such a terrible experience elsewhere, we contacted the Bucuti and Michelle helped us reserve a room on short notice.

Our one week stay , the first time in Aruba, was exceptional. The resort has an understated elegance, with the best beach on the island, and people who made the stay special. To a person, the service was all tops. The emphasis was on the beach which is why you go to Aruba. I cannot recommend this place anymore highly....

This resort is stunning! The service was incredible and everyone was so friendly. The resort manager, Rik, attended to our every need and Frank was at the front door to welcome us each day. These folks are what makes Aruba, One Happy Island!!

We recently returned from a week (early January 2017) at Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort. We had stayed at this this resort for a week in 2012.
