We found the Bucuti & Tara more than five years ago and go back every year. The location and beach are great, but what really differentiates this Hotel is the quality of service from the people that work there. They all seem to go out of their way to be friendly, helpful and professional. This is a quiet adult only hotel which has enough beach lounges for all their guests. No need to get up at 5AM to reserve a seat with an umbrella. You can get a good spot at the beach all day long! The Sandbar is reserved for Hotel Guests “only” which means you don’t wait for service more than a minute. They also provide almost constant beach attendant service if you need anything while you are sitting under an umbrella relaxing. Breakfast is impressive as well with just about anything you want including fresh made omelettes, waffles and any kind of eggs you want. You can eat either inside or outside on the Elements Deck where they also serve dinner. There are several other good restaurants within walking distance. However, since the hotel is located halfway between the high rise section and downtown a 5-10 minute cab ride gets you almost anywhere you want to go. We will be back next year!

We loved our stay here!
The Bucuti & Tara resort was an amazing experience! We loved the attentive service and the way we staff was so friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Tara Suite which was worth the extra money! The room was spacious and the bed was super comfortable and very clean. Every morning we started our day by sittings on our deck with coffee overlooking the breathtaking view of the beach and it was just incredible; the perfect way to start the day! The breakfast that is included was fantastic, so many delicious and healthy options and we never had to wait for a table. We also never had any problem getting beach chairs as opposed to our friends who were staying in the Palm Beach area who had to fight for a palapa every morning. We ate at the restaurnat several times and it was great every time. The gym was great and the massage at the spa was fantastic. We were walking distance to shops and casinos and were able to drive around and explore the island easily. We can't say enough about how wonderful this place is! It was our first time in Aruba and we honestly didn't see anywhere that was remotely comparable. We would definitley come back and stay here again!

World’s Most Romantic Resort
This is the best and most romantic resort in the world! The beach is breathtakingly perfect. The service is superb! They will bring you food and drinks to your beach lounger (and they have more loungers than guests so you never have to worry about having one). The Elements restaurant is delicious and vegan friendly. We recommend the private romantic beach dinner (reservation required). The facilities are newly renovated and up-to-date. They offer champagne at arrival, and then a conceirge completes your check-in in your room (with advance online check-in) with thorough explanations. They leave thoughtful surprises throughout your stay. They are LGBT-friendly, adult-only (but allow small dogs), eco-conscious, and wellness-encouraging. The people make this resort: from Frank at the door, Stefano at check-in, Jon at the bar, Juan at breakfast, and Vincent on the beach! The breakfast buffet is included and is delicious. It was our best vacation ever!

Best vacation
If you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation look no farther. This hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed at. The staff is amazing they are so friendly and more than willing to help you with anything we used the concierge to book all of our excursions, Frank the doorman welcomes you back as if you are family. The breakfast is delicious and Juan will keep you smiling while Paco (he is their rescued parrot) will make you laugh. The beach is stunning and there is always plenty of lounge chairs for everyone. There is WiFi throughout the entire property including the beach.

Aruba + Bucuti and Tara = One Great Vacation!
Bucuti & Tara Resort is absolutely amazing. ALL the staff went above and beyond to make our stay in Aruba great! We will definitely return in the future to Bucuti & Tara. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a place in Aruba, that is not crowded and adults only. We walked the beach almost every day and the other resorts, up and down the coast, do not even begin to compare to the beach area and space afforded to you at Bucuti. Thanks Bucuti & Tara for making our first trip to Aruba great and we look forward to staying with you again in the future.
