My wife and I just returned from a week at the Bucuti. Over the years, we've stayed at a lot of great hotels around the world, but this one may now be our favorite! We will definitely be going back to Aruba in the future and we will definitely stay at the Bucuti.
If you're looking for a beautiful, peaceful getaway in Aruba, this is the only place to stay.
I don't want to bore you by repeating what lots of others have already said in their reviews, but a few things deserve being mentioned:
- With one exception which I'll mention later, the entire property is meticulously maintained. Our room and all of the common areas were modern and very clean, the landscaping all beautifully groomed and the beach was spotless.
- The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Incredibly! Sure, lots of hotels have friendly staff at the registration counter and the concierge desk, but we've never experienced a hotel where every single employee was so quick to greet you with a friendly smile and assist you in any way possible. The housekeepers, the bartenders, the maintenance guys... everybody!
- It's quiet, peaceful and romantic. This isn't the place to go if you're looking to party all night, but if you truly want a relaxing island getaway, there's no better place to be.
Our only complaint the entire week was with the exercise facilities. When you're downing rum drinks all day and eating multi-course meals at night, it really helps to be able to work off some of the calories each morning. That was a problem here. The exercise room is small and the equipment is minimal and poorly maintained. As others have mentioned, there are plans for a newer, larger, better exercise room at the hotel. But, until that is completed, don't expect to be getting much of a workout here.
So, one week of paradise with only one complaint. Yeah, we'll be back!
