    Meticulously clean, staff goes above and beyond to make your stay amazing. If you’re looking for a relaxing, peaceful vacation this is the place to be! Not a party place, so if that’s what you’re looking for, go somewhere else. This is the most outstanding hotel in the CARIBBEAN, and the only place I’d stay in Aruba. Special thanks to the Bucuti & Tara Resort for making our trip to Aruba a phenomenal one!

    PERFECT PLACE TO ENJOY ARUBA

    THE most relaxing and peaceful vacation. We stayed for 1 week in July, 2021, and although the resort was nearly at capacity, we could not tell. There was always an employee available should you have any questions or needed assistance, and they were always courteous with a smile! Chair reservations were online, and therefor all guests had their choice of where they chose to enjoy their day. Restaurants were busy, but you never had to wait and the food was excellent! An all around excellent experience and we are currently booking a return visit for October as well as next year! This is THE PLACE to stay in Aruba!

    This was a last minute find for us and could not have been happier with this place. The staff was unbelievably nice and attentive to every bit of our needs and wants for this vacation. The location was quiet and peaceful. The food and drinks were top notch and the dinner time music was perfect each night.

    We chose Bucuti & Tara for their 5-star reviews on every site, and they lived up to 5-stars and more! This amazing resort is oceanfront and adults only. Breakfast is included daily. But what makes this resort is the amenities, staff and concierge service. You’re greeted with champagne and everyone knows your name! They are so friendly, welcoming and can help plan excursions and restaurant reservations. The outdoor restaurant / bar has live music every night and you get full service with umbrellas and cabanas. The spa treatment I had at Purna Spa was so relaxing, too! We absolutely loved our stay, only wishing it was longer of that there are other Bucuti & Tara’s around the world. They’re only located in Aruba, so we will be back!! Thank you for making our stay so memorable!!

    Pure Relaxation and comfort

    Amazing stay at Bacuti! Very safe and clean. Staff was amazing, service over the top a nd very friendly. From check in to meals and drinks on the beach to arranging for our Covid test to return to the U.S. They have a simple system to book your beach chairs and umbrella the night before, no fee for the entire day. Breakfast that is included has everything you would want and very tasty. Again the wait staff are SO friendly it is contagious. We will be back to recharge our internal batteries again!
