This first time to Aruba was outstanding. The hotel and all the people that worked there was fabulous! I have not one complaint. We even when sightseeing and all the locals were so very nice. I highly recommend this hotel over any high rise there on the island

My wife and I chose Bucuti and Tara for our first trip to Aruba based on Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. Bucuti and Tara is a small hotel in the low-rise area of Eagle Beach. There are two wings, the Bucuti wing and the Tara wing. We stayed in the Tara wing in which all rooms have...

My wife and I are first time guests but have stayed in Aruba on several occasions for our one week vacation. Bucuti and Tara was by far the most complete service oriented resort by far. Details and follow up were most impressive. From checkin to housekeeping to the manager coming around to each guest at breakfast to see how things...

We've stayed at this adults-only beachfront hotel three times and we love it. Great service, fabulous experience, and reasonable prices. Stay in the Tara suites for an unparalleled view of the water from your private balcony. We stayed in a penthouse suite once which gets you a full kitchen and a private cabana on the beach, but we're just as...

The resort is top notch and looks brand new. Spotless throughout. We had a penthouse in Tara - huge and very comfy. Nice touches like espresso machine and TV in bath mirror. Bed very comfortable. Oversized balcony overlooking ocean. PH comes with straw roof cabana on beach. Handy since sun can sneak up on you or if passing sun showers...

Fantastic, relaxing beach getaway. Our fifth year running. Adults only. No kids. No casino. No music. Quiet, relaxing. Wonderful, uncrowded beach. Wonderful swimming. Lovely pool. Spa and exercise facilities. Beach-side bar for guests only. Fantastic service; more than friendly staff. Quality rooms, all with views. Top-notch restaurant on premises. "Green" and sustainable philosophical orientation.
