There is a reason why we keep coming back...amazing place, big beach that is not crowded, and the service.

I will start of by saying that there is no loud music, no kids, no watersports, and the demographic can be a bit older. Some trips there were about half young honeymoon couples...however, this last time I would say that most of the people were 50 and older. We are in our late 20's, but we did not mind this at all....it is all about hte beach and peace and quite. Everyone is friendly and you have a tendancy to seek out the younger people at the bar. If you want piece and quite this is the place to be. We have stayed at other places on the island and the beach is not as nice and it is much more crowded. If you want to get away and stay in a spa like setting that is not too stuffy, then this is the place for you.

We truly appreciate your frequent visits and would like to let you know that the demographics of our clientele changes a bit during the seasons - a bit older in the winter months and somewhat younger the rest of the year. The prime honeymoon season is from may to november and that means a much younger visitor
We also thank you for your wonderful review - we appreciate it very much.

Sunny regards

I really don't want to share my experience at Bucuti and Tara because then it will be booked several years in advance. This adult only resort is just fantastic with some of the best beaches on Aruba! Breakfast was included and it wasn't just the day old bagel or premade waffles. Everything you would want for breakfast was available and the food was only upstaged by the view of the beach. Friendly staff only makes the hotel shine even brighter. I believe the happy hours (4-6 and 9-10) provided some of the best buys for tropical drinks on the island. Plenty of beach lounges are provided so you don't have to get up at the crack of dawn to find a place like other resorts. And the idea of having a flag on the lounges when you want service was just brilliant. We are already planning our next trip there for next year. What else could I say to endorse this hotel? Well done!!!!!

This place is simply magical. The grounds are gorgeous and the Tara suites are spacious and updated. Eagle beach is outside your door and is one of the prettiest beaches I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The food is great and the sand bar had two daily happy hours with the friendliest bartenders you will ever find. We just loved chatting with Aldrick, who was an outstanding bartender and so sweet. You can spend the day soaking up the sun on beautiful plush beach loungers with food and beverage service right on the beach. The staff goes above and beyond and even deliver fresh ice and cold towels to you while you sunbathe. The resort is incredible for its beauty and updated style but the people are what makes this place unforgettable. Every person from the breakfast cook to the grounds keepers are friendly and make you feel like family. So happy to have found this gem of a resort. Will definitely be returning soon!

Bucuti was recommended by friends whom we travelled with and we will definitely be back. We were welcomed upon check-in by resort manager Debra and a glass of champagne. Connie informed us about the various restaurants etc on the resort. We were then escorted to our room which was very comfortable.

The beach is absolutely gorgeous and the water's color is amazing. We swam in the ocean and the pool. Never had trouble getting loungers on the beach and even ordered lunch one day by flipping up the flag on the side.

Happy hour was always a fun time. The staff were always friendly and helpful. They all went out of their way to make sure everything was going well. Can't say enough about the people!

A fabulous and relaxing vacation.

Bucuti is the best if you want a quiet, clean beach with immediate individual attention. If you like a smaller poolside experience this is the place. Also the attention to details makes this boutique resort stand out in the Eagle Beach area. Fun casino a five minute walk. Well worth the money.

We went to Aruba to celebrate our 25 th anniversary and chose the Bucuti Tara beach. And we are very happy that we made that choice. The whole stay from the begiining to the end was excellent. The staff at the reception are very frendly, Excellent breakfast at the beach restaturant couldn't be better. Our celebration of our anniversary at the beachside restaurant watching the sunset was incredible. We absolutely recommend this hotel.

Our first visit to Caribbean and we were not disappointed - Aruba is a beautiful island full of very friendly people - we felt completely safe. We chose the adult only Bucuti and found it was all we wanted - peaceful, excellent service the staff could not do enough for us especially Sali, Althea at breakfast, Mario and Joel too. Even though Bucuti is about 10 mins from the capital, we were amazed by how many places to eat we found within a 5 minute walk - we will definitely return one day Helen and Ian
