Our first time at Bucuti after 20 years of going to Aruba---wonderful, wonderful. It is a boutique Hotel. They greet you with a glass of champagne--no lines. After they check you in, you go to your room. All have decks or patios and view ocean or garden. Enough umbrellas and tables any time of the day at beach and pool....

What a fabulous place. Quiet beaches, turquoise waters, and yet only 5 minutes can ride to The heart of the city. It's like a little piece of paradise that feels like you are a world away from anywhere but you have the great entertainment of the center of town only 5 mins away. I can't say enough great things about...

If you are looking for a beautiful beach, plenty of seating, and quiet, this is the place for you. This adults only resort is well maintained with a beautiful pool that is hardly used. The western facing beach is spacious with more than enough seating to accommodate the patrons on comfortable lounge chairs with service as ordered. The Elements restaurant...

Thank you for your kind words! I would say laid back or barefoot Luxury because we do not offer the opulence and the high gloss and glitz of the five star resorts. Four will do for us. We hope to serve you again ! Ewald Biemans

This resort has the friendliest most competent staff, the widest pristine beach; luxurious rooms, an excellent restaurant, the most comfortable beach lounge chairs spaced perfectly to allow yourself the freedom to immerse yourself in a book or just relax and take in the sheer beauty of the surroundings.

This was our 13th trip to Aruba, and our first time at the Bucuti & Tara, and I have to say that this resort is SO far above the rest! We were loyal visitors to the Hilton (formerly Radisson) but were so disappointed there last year that we made an appointment to see the Bucuti, loved it, and booked it...

The most beautiful beach! A relaxed, quiet atmosphere. Lovely staff. No children. No "scene." Not ultra luxe--but the perfect place to step away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. This is the best place for a rejuvenating week.

Esteemed SURPRISE, Thank you so much for your review. It sounds like this is about our place but assume that latter part of the review refers to another place as we do not offer golf carts to explore 'Hopkins' . Regardless, we hope to see you again here in Aruba soon. Masha Danki Ewald Biemans
