This was my first visit to Aruba and to the Bucuti & Tara Resort. It was like something out of a magazine! White sand beach with beautiful amenities, friendly staff, great food, and waiters serving ice cold drinks right to your sun bed. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating. We were there for my mother's birthday and they couldn't do...

We stayed in the Junior suite and had the best view of the awesome beach! Adorable Frank first greeted us, and everyday met us at the door when we came in from our adventures with a "welcome home" as did the other gentlemen working the door who also were most helpful with groceries and what not. The concierge team was...

This was our third visit to the Bucuti and Tara resort. Again we were impressed by all of the people who work there. Everyone we met was always friendly, helpful, and tried to make our stay special. Previously we stayed in the Tara suites which are being refurbished now, so we booked a garden view room in the Bucuti. Our...

Just got back from a week at this amazing hotel. It is located on the most beautiful beach in Aruba, we were informed of this by our taxi driver on the way in. He was right. The room was lovely, the rain shower in the bathroom with the local aloe shampoos and creams was wonderful. This was a Mother's Day...

You've heard it said, and the book DreamBeaches of the World and Tripadvisor both among many others, named our stretch of beach top of the World. Unequivocally! We are proud of it and like to show off - please forgive our lack of modesty. We do hope to serve you again sometime and say Masha Danki, Ewald Biemans

Such an amazing resort. Incredibly friendly staff, modern & fresh aesthetic, very clean and well kept resort - always, gorgeous beach and a relaxing atmosphere. Have been to the island 5 times and have always stayed at Bucuti. Nowhere else would compare. Top notch all the way around!

If you are coming to Aruba, check for availability at Bucuti first. We have never stayed at a place that has better service. Every employee is nice and happy, wanting to help in any way they can. They have service from their bar and restaurant on the beach, which is very nice. Their beach chairs and umbrellas are in great...

We just returned from an 11 day stay at the Bucuti. We have been going to Aruba for many years and this was our second visit to the Bucuti. I don't know why we ever stayed anywhere else. The staff go above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. We are thinking about our visit for next year!

Based upon TripAdvisor, I made a reservation here for the end of May. I made a mistake with my reservation online (I chose the wrong dates), and they were very helpful and responsive with the issue. I greatly appreciate this and this bodes very well for my future travel!
