    PERFECT PLACE TO ENJOY ARUBA

    THE most relaxing and peaceful vacation. We stayed for 1 week in July, 2021, and although the resort was nearly at capacity, we could not tell. There was always an employee available should you have any questions or needed assistance, and they were always courteous with a smile! Chair reservations were online, and therefor all guests had their choice of where they chose to enjoy their day. Restaurants were busy, but you never had to wait and the food was excellent! An all around excellent experience and we are currently booking a return visit for October as well as next year! This is THE PLACE to stay in Aruba!

    Very high staff to guest ratio and every single staff person is happy, engaging, and service oriented. They personify the Aruba theme of “One Happy Island”. The facility is private, the beach is beautiful, the water perfect. Excellent food and beverages. Very nice gym. We will go back!

    We arrived home from spending a week at Bucuti in June. It lived up to and surpassed all expectations. We stayed at Bucuti around 4 years ago and decided post vaccine it was a great place to return to. Rooms are spotless, beach is so clean and spacious, food is tasty, and location on the island is where you want to be. Low rise area is much quieter than the high rise. Two staff members that made our trip were Angela and Margarita (sorry i know this not the spelling :) ) in the Tara suite breakfast. Every morning they worked so hard taking care of everyone. Omelletes, dutch pancakes, cappuccinos, oatmeal, etc. nicest people and was a great start to every day. Beach service was very good as well. If I had to say one critique it would be the new menu at Sandbar. Menu lacks the basic light salad choices or more options. I’m not a very picky eater, but just surprised some basic wraps or a few salads arent on there. All in all, it was a tremendous stay. We absolutely loved it and caught every sunset before dinner sitting on those comfy couches. Aruba is ready for visitors and very safe. Nicest people too. Reach out if you have any questions.

    We loved the personal attentiveness shown by every staff member to please and their friendliness. Everyone wanted our visit to be special with memories. Everything was so Clean and always being wiped down. We didn't like the constant birds around our breakfast table, but the staff was really excellent about quick clean-up after guests left.

    We had the most INCREDIBLE honeymoon with Bucuti & Tara. Best resort we have ever stayed in, they are incredibly accommodating and everything is top of the line. Everyone from the managers and the concierge to the beach staff and bartenders are phenomenal. Also the most gorgeous beach I have ever experienced. You will not regret your stay here it’s truly the best of the best

    By far the best resort on Aruba, period. It's quiet, clean, staff are amazing and the location on Eagle Beach is far away from the mass people either downtown or in Palm Beach -both only about 10 minutes either direction. I stayed here on a solo vacation for 10 days - it was a big splurge but I am so glad I did it! Breakfast every morning was amazing and the wellness activities onsite were fun and appreciated. *Next door at Manchebo Bay Resort is an outdoor yoga studio with classes in the morning or at night. I had a slight medical emergency during my stay and within 2 minutes of calling the front desk they had the doctor call me who prescribed me topical antibiotics I picked up 5 minutes later at the Pharmacy thats 2 blocks away - Phenomenal Service! The Tara Suite is nice and spacious. The Spa offers massages and facials, they can even do nails although I didnt partake in nails onsite. Elements Resturant was delicious and the Beach Bar Food you can order from your Umbrella is perfect. I did not try Senses Resturant as I made other dinner reservations each night but I heard from other guests that Senses is an amazing experience. Everyone I met and interacted with at the Bucuti Resort or on any of the Excursions was amazing - I even met a local, Mike, who does private tours and is amazing - I cant recommend him enough - find him on Instagram: Amazonmike Overall, Bucuti and Tara did not disappoint - it is an excellent choice, I had an amazing stay here. Do it!!

    most relaxing, quiet, restful, catered, beautiful

    The most relaxing, quiet, restful, catered, beautiful beach vacation we’ve ever had. We appreciated the hotel admin and staff so much. They were the most consistent and compassionate of any place we had been to on the island with making us feel safe during COVID. The concierges were also very helpful in telling us about all the amenities and reserving activities and dinner reservations for us even outside the resort (special shout out to Daniela & Madeline). The fitness director Minion was so knowledgeable, calming, and knew when to push us just right during workout classes. Even Michael our bellman made a warm impact. Beachside breakfast was fabulous! All the beach and dining staff were kind and patient while trudging out in the sand constantly bringing guest drinks and snacks so we didn’t have to get up to order. We loved the reserved umbrella system because we never felt stressed we’d lose our spot or anyone would move our stuff. Best beach chairs too! We got a couples massage on the beach, and my wife got a second one solo too because Emerelda was that good! Staying at Bucuti was the best decision. They made us feel very special on the special occasion of my wife finishing school and becoming a doctor. Happy hours and wellness hours with healthy smoothie specials helped too! We could have stayed here forever—can’t wait to come back!
