Once you read a few reviews you know what to expect. We like Bucuti because of the beach and the number of padded beach chairs they have, never a problem finding a couple of chairs. No towel games like other resorts(sandals). Although i did see a few people up at 6:30 am ( in the dark) saving their favorite chairs....

This was my husband and my third visit to Bucuti & Tara, and again our visit was spectacular! The resort is adult only which is a huge draw for us, and even though typically full you never fill crowded. The staff is outstanding......from the owner who makes himself quite available to guests, to the doorman Frank (the face of Bucuti),...

Everything about the Bucuti is amazing. All the staff are so friendly and a special mention to Mario out front and Margherita at breakfast. We saw the owner a number of times who was a,ways there to listen and see how you wre getting on. The beach isamazing and it makes a differece having enough chairs and umbrellas for everyone....

We stayed at the Tara Suites in September of 2016 for our 1-year anniversary. Only great things to say - very clean, great accommodations, the beach was lovely (a little windy, but the wind was welcome in that heat!) and staff was friendly and helpful. Carte Blanche was fabulous and fun. We were only there for a few days, but...

Search no more- Bucuti and Tara is the place to be. All the raving reviews are true and this is by far the best hotel on the island! It's situated on the best beach (Eagle Beach) with no water motor sports and noisy neighbours surrounding you. Customer service is superb at this resort and you really feel special for being...

Attention to detail and consistency are the hallmarks of Bucuti & Tara. The owner interacts with the guests to inquire as to how satisfied guests are with the services. The employees are friendly and genuinely happy to work there. We received an upgraded room to the Tara Tower and the room was well appointed and very comfortable. We so enjoyed...

I stop just a tad short of giving Bucuti 5 stars. We did have a fabulous vacation and Bucuti is a wonderful resort. However, we did have a few service issues keeping me from saying it was perfect. The resort is very well maintained and the beach area is beautiful. They have plenty of very comfortable beach chairs to relax...

Our first time at Bucuti after 20 years of going to Aruba---wonderful, wonderful. It is a boutique Hotel. They greet you with a glass of champagne--no lines. After they check you in, you go to your room. All have decks or patios and view ocean or garden. Enough umbrellas and tables any time of the day at beach and pool....

What a fabulous place. Quiet beaches, turquoise waters, and yet only 5 minutes can ride to The heart of the city. It's like a little piece of paradise that feels like you are a world away from anywhere but you have the great entertainment of the center of town only 5 mins away. I can't say enough great things about...

If you are looking for a beautiful beach, plenty of seating, and quiet, this is the place for you. This adults only resort is well maintained with a beautiful pool that is hardly used. The western facing beach is spacious with more than enough seating to accommodate the patrons on comfortable lounge chairs with service as ordered. The Elements restaurant...
