The concierge staff and the doorman were just fantastic. Wonderful service overall. A beautifully laid out hotel right on the beech with a good restaurant on a deck overlooking the ocean. We took a couple of great boat trips arranged by the concierge. They make everything very fun and easy.

My wife and I recently just stayed at Bucuti; what an enjoyable time we had. From Frank at the front door to Robinson at our romantic dinner on the beach. We were well served everyday by Mr. Orville on the beach; he is great! Cannot wait to go back to Aruba and Bucuti!

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is an adult only beach resort. Thus it is perfect for newly – weds or for couples who would like to relax. And speaking of full – relaxation, we were so lucky to have stayed in the property’s penthouse! You got it right. We are in this expensive and exclusive resort, staying in one of...

Our second stay was even better than our first. We stayed in the penthouse in March and had a wonderful week. Every member of the staff that we encountered was friendly and helpful.

We have spend 12 days at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts. We can highly recommend it to everybody who expects to have a relaxed vacation at a very nice hotel with a wonderful own beach.
