This year we stayed for one week in November and experienced the same comfortable, tranquil, welcoming ambience. They helped me celebrate my birthday with a basket of cheese, crackers, cookies and a bottle of wine. There are couples of all ages... More

This hotel stands out from the rest on Aruba for many reasons. One of the most important is its beach. Few hotels on the island can compare to the expansive white beach that plays out in front of the Bucuti.
