Yes, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is truly as amazing as the reviews indicate! From the beginning, you are welcomed and made comfortable. After a full day of traveling from Minnesota, the cool towel and champagne were wonderful! As we settled into our room, we saw the sun setting over the beautiful beach and dreamed of spending days relaxing over...

This is the second review in a row and the fifth this month qualifying Aruba and our resort as Paradise - I am considering calling our resort "little paradise" instead of Bucuti which stands for " an Island of peace and tranquility". In any case, we are so grateful to be inhabitants and members of this paradise called Aruba and...

We just enjoyed an incredible week at the Bucuti. Everything was top-notch! We loved the quiet and spacious property, the gorgeous beach, the friendly staff, excellent housekeeping, great food and fantastic service. It was a dream vacation!

Beautiful and the service was great. The Staff was impecable, checking in was a Breeze, especially with . Debra, twann and Mario. Champagne is a great idea. My favorite asset would be the Sandbar. Met people from all over the world. and the sunsets to die for. So glad we went to Aruba and stayed at the Bucati/Tara Resort.

There is a reason why we keep coming back...amazing place, big beach that is not crowded, and the service. I will start of by saying that there is no loud music, no kids, no watersports, and the demographic can be a bit older. Some trips there were about half young honeymoon couples...however, this last time I would say that most...

We truly appreciate your frequent visits and would like to let you know that the demographics of our clientele changes a bit during the seasons - a bit older in the winter months and somewhat younger the rest of the year. The prime honeymoon season is from may to november and that means a much younger visitor We also thank...

I really don't want to share my experience at Bucuti and Tara because then it will be booked several years in advance. This adult only resort is just fantastic with some of the best beaches on Aruba!

This place is simply magical. The grounds are gorgeous and the Tara suites are spacious and updated.

Bucuti is the best if you want a quiet, clean beach with immediate individual attention. If you like a smaller poolside experience this is the place. Also the attention to details makes this boutique resort stand out in the Eagle Beach area. Fun casino a five minute walk. Well worth the money.
