I had researched where to stay in Aruba for a couple of years. It was an island I had always wanted to visit so I wanted to make sure I choose the correct hotel for us. The Bucuti was spot on. The warm welcome we received from the friendly and helpful staff, a lovely glass of chilled champagne while checking...

I won a trip through work, and my wife and I did a lot of homework trying to pick the perfect place. Our stay at Bucuti and Tara on Eagle Beach in Aruba was just that. It's a long...long...long trip to Aruba from Seattle, and we were concerned, but it was well worth the 10+ hr flight time. We stepped...

My wife and I recently returned from Bucuti and Tara. We stayed in the Tara portion, and were immediately astounded. This resort compliments Aruba's beautiful beaches with warm-hearted staff, adult-only amenities, spacious and comfortable rooms, and excellent surrounding restaurants. The food on the resort is excellent, particularly the romantic dinner on the beach, which you can reserve by contacting resort...

A gorgeous, peaceful property. No need to stake out an umbrella. If you really want to splurge, the Tara penthouses come with a reserved palapa with a table and chairs for your exclusive use. You can spend all day on the beach - they give you a flag to stick in the sand when you need service. Outstanding concierges and...

My husband and I returned to Bucuti for the third time. It just gets better and better. It is very peaceful and has an extremely beautiful beach.

this place is undoubtedly the best resort on Aruba if you are looking for the best beach, lack of screaming children and extremely nice staff. No other resort has as nice a beach with beach chairs an umbrellas available at any time of the day. The rooms are very nice.
