Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort lived up to and exceeded our expectations. This property was pristine, the staff was second to none, the ocean was impossibility beautiful, the food was exceptional, the rooms were modernized and relaxing, the COVID precautions were carried out to perfection, and the property’s mascot the Paco the Parrot was hysterical and entertaining. The pool looked inviting and peaceful as well, but my husband and I never left the oceanside. A quick shout to our favorite staff members: Isreal and Jonathan kept our drinks and food coming without delay and always with a smile and good conversation. Rambo greeted us each morning preparing us treats from the most unbelievably delicious, fresh, and plentiful breakfast buffet. We had dinner bar-side at Elements on our first night. The gnocchi, salads and cocktails were delicious and fresh. On Wednesday night, our twentieth anniversary, we ate a decadent eight course meal at Senses. To say the food was extraordinary would be an understatement. The chef put his heart and soul into the dishes, and it showed. My favorite was his salmon and signature flowerpot chocolate mousse. My husband loved the red snapper and ruby chocolate accompanied with raspberry sorbet. From the moment we stepped onto the property greeted with a glass of champagne, to the surprise bottle in our room with cheese and chocolate, to the reusable ‘green’ metal water bottles, to the concierge pulling trips out for us last minute, to the moment we left—we were never left for want. This is a 5-star experience from every angle. Thank you for making the happy inland extra ‘happy’

This being our second time staying at the Bucuti in the Tara suites makes us realize how special this place is. The standards of service and accommodations surpass lots of other hotels. Every staff member is genuinely friendly always a smile on their face. Anything you need will be taken care of with no questions asked. This is the place to go to relax and do nothing but enjoy the gorgeous beach, in our opinion one of the most beautiful beaches we have been to. If you want to splurge the Tara suites is the way to go. Large enough to be able to spread out, with a separate sitting area with a TV, microwave, fridge and sink, along with the bedroom area with another TV and lo and behold a TV in the mirror in the bathroom. We were lucky enough to once again get a ground floor room, the convenience of walking out right onto the beach spoiled us!!! There is a great system of booking your beach chairs and umbrella at 5:00pm the day before, you reserve it for the entire day so no worrying about getting up at the crack of dawn to secure a chair. And you can come and go as you please because it is yours for the day! The fitness facilities were top notch and they adhered to COVID protocols so felt very safe. And the ease of being able to get our COVID test onsite was a huge bonus before returning home. Food was superb from breakfast, lunch to my birthday celebration on the beach at sunset. What an amazing experience, it was timed just right to enjoy an absolutely gorgeous sunset on the beach while dining. The amount of courses we were served was over the top!!! We felt like royalty! The Bucuti is one of our top hotels that we love and will be returning to as often as we can!!!!

An Amazing adult only resort, on the best location in Aruba with the most stunning beach, fantastic property and an outstanding service. From the minute you walk in the resort you feel the amazing service level, we loved every minute at the Bucuti &Tara. The staf was excellent and amazing friendly, it was like living in a dream world. On the first evening of arrival Mirna took care about us in the Element restaurant and we loved her they way she made us feel at home. We were surprised to see Jonathan Werleman who we knew from the Holland America Line, he and and his crew in Element restaurant was fantastic, breakfast, lunch and diner it was always with an exceptional service. Isreal, louis and Jonathan the beach service we had so much fun with you guys and what a great service. Beverly of the towel service always a chat, always a smile and always a laugh. Rudolf and Romano they guys were so friendly and helpfully. The sustainability manager who always made a morning talk with us. Many thanks to all individuals who i have forgotten to mention but impressed us with the service.

My husband and I stayed at B&T for ten fabulous nights in September 2021 for our honey-versary (honeymoon/first anniversary). There is not one negative thing to tell you. Breakfast daily was delicious. Cabana dinner with Myrna was phenomenal. Beach service was perfect, special thanks to the mega-smart young man, Israel, our favorite beach butler who we very much enjoyed chatting with. As others stated, if you're looking for more of a party atmosphere, this is not the place for you. B&T, however, was absolutely perfect for us. There's quiet live music at night, either a guitarist or steel drums - which was perfect. Go on the B&T Spanish Lagoon trip, this was so much fun. Also, we recommend dinner at the Senses Chef Table (it's expensive - just know going in that the wine pairing is an additional charge) - this was a super fancy, memorable evening for us. I don't think we walked by a single staff member that did not say hello - this is a big deal for us - we LOVE friendly, accommodating people. The staff at B&T is top-notch, A+ and wonderful people. When we come back to Aruba in the future - we will only stay at B&T!

Room Tip: Quieter in the Tara building (all Tara Suites have ocean view). More storage than we could use!...
