My husband of 30 years and I just returned from probably the best vacation we have ever had. Bucuti & Tara's staff are extremely friendly, helpful and happy! They certainly act like they love their jobs. We stayed in a Tara Suite and to walk right out your door and be on the beach in 20 feet was amazing. There...

I did my research prior to planning our 20th wedding anniversary get away. After reading the reviews for Bucuti, I had found our destination. This place really does live up to the reviews. No need for me to repeat all that has been said here. I did want to mention a few names. Of course Frank greeted us upon our...

Just returned today from a 10 day stay at Bucuti. No question it is a fantastic resort, however, I was surprised to see CondeNest gave it number one in Caribbean. I thought the personnel were the best at any resort I ever stayed at. They seemed genuinely friendly and seemed to really care. The food was fantastic and nothing to...

The last time we were in Aruba was 1985 shortly before we were married. For our 30th anniversary we decided to return to the first place we vacationed together. Bucuti wasn't around then which was probably a good thing since we couldn't have afforded it. Now we can and it was worth every penny. I have to say, after 12...

This is just perfect. From A to Z this stay was wonderful. The food is nice, they will always have enough to provide, the staff is friendly and attentive and this is just the best beach on Aruba. The sand is white and fine, lovely to look at and walk on. The sunbeds at the beach are very comfortable and...

My husband and I are here for a couples getaway for the week, and are leaving tomorrow. Everything has been fabulous! This is a super chill place, which was just our speed. The rooms are beautiful, nicely appointed, and well-maintained. We booked a Tara suite; plenty of room and a gorgeous ocean front view. The entire staff is very friendly...

Another restorative stay at Bucuti and Tara. We first visited in Summer 2015 and knew we would be back. This year we stayed for one week in November and experienced the same comfortable, tranquil, welcoming ambience. They helped me celebrate my birthday with a basket of cheese, crackers, cookies and a bottle of wine. There are couples of all ages...

I am a little late getting to my review from last month, but the experience still feels like yesterday. My husband and I got married here at Bucuti 3 years ago and decided to start saving the minute we got home so that we would have enough to come back for our 5 year Anniversary. After a year went by...

We are fortunate that we have traveled to many islands. Sadly to say we won't be visiting most of them again because Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort has spoiled us forever! There are no negatives here. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Frank and believe me he lives up to the hype. Next was the best check in ever....
