“Another great stay”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

We decided to come back because we knew that the staff was great, the service and attention impeccable and of course, the beach is one of the most beautiful in the world.We also love the people of Aruba. As usual, the concierge service was top notch - thanks again Madi. The service at the bar and restaurant rivals any of the fine places we enjoy in NYC. It's nice that Carte Blanche has moved to the resort site - we had fabulous time meeting folks from all over and enjoying not just a terrific meal, but the interaction with Dennis and Glen was a blast. And of course Deborah is the perfect hostess, making it a point to speak with each of the guests. We again had a wonderful, relaxing trip.

Room Tip: We couldn't get a beach view, but the garden view is just as nice, as each room has a terrace fr...

The Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort was a perfect vacation for my husband's 60th birthday. We found the hotel simply beautiful, the staff friendly, and the beach picture perfect. We stayed in the Tara Suites and hands down, it is the best hotel, we have stayed at, in the Caribbean.

The décor is simple but elegant (not overboard), and the room, comfortable and conducive for the beach. We loved the "adults only" policy. The sized of the resort (small and quaint) is a plus as well. There are plenty of beach loungers/umbrellas available daily. The loungers have padding with covers making it extra comfortable. The daily breakfast buffet is plentiful with a lot of choices. We usually ate lunch at the Sand Bar and the food was excellent. We appreciated that only guest of the hotel were able to render services at the Sand Bar. The bar is tranquil and quiet; no loud music, no loud people, no body shots (which is fine if that is what you want).

The hotel is VERY well maintained and clean. There has been much effort and thought put forth in the planning/layout of the resort. Everything from the chairs at the bar to the workout facility. The staff and service is awesome.
After a long flight it was nice to be greeted with champagne and a friendly smile. The service was impeccable; the staff =warm and friendly. Special thanks to Robert; his laid back demeanor helped me relax. He is an awesome server, hard worker and he kept the beach beautiful. All the bar staff is great! Jessica, Juan Carlos, Gregg, and Karen are all warm, friendly, and kept the drinks flowing.
We took the sunset cruise through the hotel. It was a small group of hotel guests only. Also quaint, tranquil and a breath taking sunset.
There was not one thing we could find to complain about on our stay. We will be back for our 25th anniversary!

Room Tip: Tara Suites are spacious and oceanfront.

This is a beautiful, high end property...a must for a kid-free trip for couples. My wife and I arrived at Tara on Sunday. We were met by Frank at the door and were escorted to check-in. We had a wonderful experience with Tara's concierge, Madeline (who also helped us with restaurant reservations). She poured champagne and we chatted for over an hour and didn't even care. She is gracious, professional, and funny. The room was an ocean front second floor suite near the spa (an added benefit was the scent of the spa permeating the hallway). We could not be happier with the room. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully designed, well set up, and of course the view could not be beat. We ate at Elements the first night and retired to the Sandbar after dinner. Both are wonderful if you want to just relax at the resort. The beach set up was perfect and there were always chairs and umbrellas for the guests. We are both professionals and the last thing we wanted on our vacation was a resort filled with families and kids (nothing wrong with that of course - we left our two boys at home). We were also celebrating my wife's 40th birthday, and it was a perfect choice. This resort is quiet, peaceful, and most importantly, caters perfectly to the type of vacationer that wants that kind of serene experience. The Bucuti /Tara staff is truly among the best we've encountered anywhere in the world. The staff members make an effort to get to know the guests from the moment you arrive and soon you feel like old friends, yet they always exhibit the highest professionalism. From the beach attendants to the bellmen to the bar/restaurant servers, the service is truly exceptional. If you are looking for excitement at your resort - look elsewhere. If you want to totally relax and recharge while being catered to like royalty, this is the place for you.

Room Tip: All rooms are great! If you can afford it, reserve one of the Tara suites as they are all ocean fron...

When you arrive, the bellman knows your name and accompanies you to the check-in desk. Check-in was flawless and everyone greeted us with a smile and acknowledgement during our entire stay. Few hotels can provide such an elegant yet friendly environment. Our bungalow was very comfortable and housekeeping was excellent. We made some new friends and loved the relaxing beach and gorgeous sunsets over the ocean. We will definitely return next year and have recommended it to everyone we have met.

This is a MUST for your honeymoon or romantic trip - no kids allowed, greeted with champagne, beautiful balcony (Jr. Suite), and beach so private that it is so relaxing, but not too overcrowded. Enough room for all guests to get chairs and umbrellas that were already set up for us. Servers on the beach, great concierge's and wonderful staff! The restaurant is great. Free breakfast with the rooms, WIFI everywhere and so many other couples around just great people overall. Stay here!!

My wife & I spent last week totally relaxing and enjoying the Bucuti & Tara Resort. From the champagne check-in to the easy (but sad) check-out, Bucuti met or exceeded all of our expectations. The entire staff was incredibly friendly & always ready to help with a smile. The beach is beautiful, with plenty of room for everyone. The food & drink were excellent - the bartenders could whip up anything you could think of although I do wish they had the local beer Balashi on draft! The weather was spectacular. It was a wonderful vacation and I know we will return.
