After much research for our 30th Anniversary trip we decided on Bucuti & Tara. The initial selling point for us was NO KIDS. Upon arrival we were happily greeted by the famous Frank (the doorman). Very welcoming and efficient. We were led into the lobby area where we were given cool rags and champagne. We were then taken to our...

This was our second stay at Bucuti & Tara, and our reception from the staff was heartwarming. Everyone said "welcome home!" Madeline, Karen and Mary-Ann (to name just a few) are amazing. They remember everything you enjoy, from your drink of choice to favorite restaurants. Adults only resorts don't get better than this, and we've already booked our room for...

My husband and I wanted a perfect relaxing beach get away and this was exactly what we received. I was torn between staying in an all inclusive or not because I knew Aruba was safe and had a lot to offer outside of the resort, but feel as though we made the best decision by staying at Bucuti. The free...

Bucuti and Tara is not for everyone. this is not the place for Conga lines or blaring music. You have to want blissful, peace and quiet. Beginning with our reservation Steve was very accommodating. The staff responded quickly to any request we had. Simone the concierge was very helpful with recommendations. Ewald has a vision for what this place should...

Once you read a few reviews you know what to expect. We like Bucuti because of the beach and the number of padded beach chairs they have, never a problem finding a couple of chairs. No towel games like other resorts(sandals). Although i did see a few people up at 6:30 am ( in the dark) saving their favorite chairs....

This was my husband and my third visit to Bucuti & Tara, and again our visit was spectacular! The resort is adult only which is a huge draw for us, and even though typically full you never fill crowded. The staff is outstanding......from the owner who makes himself quite available to guests, to the doorman Frank (the face of Bucuti),...

We stayed at the Tara Suites in September of 2016 for our 1-year anniversary. Only great things to say - very clean, great accommodations, the beach was lovely (a little windy, but the wind was welcome in that heat!) and staff was friendly and helpful. Carte Blanche was fabulous and fun. We were only there for a few days, but...

Search no more- Bucuti and Tara is the place to be. All the raving reviews are true and this is by far the best hotel on the island! It's situated on the best beach (Eagle Beach) with no water motor sports and noisy neighbours surrounding you. Customer service is superb at this resort and you really feel special for being...

Attention to detail and consistency are the hallmarks of Bucuti & Tara. The owner interacts with the guests to inquire as to how satisfied guests are with the services.
