This was our third stay at Bucuti. It keeps getting better. We go in late January to escape winter and just sit under an umbrella on the beach to read and swim in the delicious ocean water. We unplugged all electronics and just melted in the breezes. The new restaurant is quite nice - simple but perfect. They are still...

This place is rare in that the staff, the site, the amenities and the ambiance all combine to make for a capital R relaxing time. Four years on the island, and we'll be back for the fifth and beyond. Let others rush to the madness north of the island with excess and Vegas-level noise and tomfoolery. If what you seek...

We just got home from our first visit to Bucuti and Tara. The resort is quiet, and peaceful, and there is lots of room on the beautiful beach.

Bucuti & Tara beach resort plainly just has it all. Nicely appointed rooms, with everything you need. We stayed for 18 days and never missed a thing from home. The staff is also very accomodating, in a Caribbeean style i.e perhaps a bit relaxed compared to European style. But we did never mind, as we actually found it contributing to...

This IS the place to come for a couples relaxation trip. Adult-only, low-key, and quiet this resort takes care of its guests with great attention to detail.

We just returned from a 1 week romantic vacation at Bucuti and Tara Resort in Aruba. Eagle beach had clean, soft, white sand and aquamarine colored gentle waves.
