Wow. This is "The" Hotel for couples as absolutely no one under 21 is allowed on site. Everything is geared to adults. Eagle beach is everything that that you have heard about. The sand is very white and almost flour like. You can actually get a beach chair without having to get up st 5:00am in the morning like most...

That is right, Adults Only ! Our resort is designed for romance and wellness and people who love each other and do not need to be entertained. We offer minimal entertainment and activities at the resort, while our concierges stand by to organize whatever our guest wish to partake in. You mentioned the "Green Flash" during sunset and if you...

Just spent 5 nights here. This is a beautiful resort and the staff are very attentive and eager to please. The breakfast that comes with the room charge offered something for everyone - even omelets cooked right in front of you. We had a deluxe ocean view room that was spectacular. The only downside to the room was the constant...

From the greeting when we arrived to the fast and friendly checkout we have nothing but good things to say about our stay at Bucuti & Tara. Loved the adults only policy.

Greetings Jasmine R, First, I thank you very much for such a nice write up her and for returning a second time to our resort. We truly appreciate that!

Dear Serena F. We truly appreciate your kind review and say thank you! Some years ago we converted most queen rooms to kings but kept a total of 6 for couples who request separate beds. Unfortunately when booking through a third party site these details are not manageable. We will look at our mobile site to see how we can...

My wife and I are Midwesterners from big-hearted families, so it bears some weight when I assert that the staff of the Bucuti and Tara are among the kindest people I have ever met. Long before our plane touched down on Aruba, the concierges were reaching out to us to ensure that all of our needs would be met. Upon...

Bucuti and Tara made everything easy. We were greeted enthusiastically by one of the concierge staffers who gave us a glass of champagne and a quick tour. We headed straight to the beach - easily the best and least crowded beach on the island. The towel desk provided both towels and chair covers. Nice touch! There were more than enough...
