We loved our stay.
SAMUEL V.
Nov 22 2012
This hotel and every staff mmebe we encountered were great. We can's say enough good things. The only thing we hope the hotel considers in the future is more smoke free areas. It was very disturbing to wake up and smell smoke coming from a neighboring balcony, at dinner and by the pool. Except for this policy the hotel met our every expectation.

Bucuti is Paradise!

The Bucuti is everything I want for my vacation! The staff is so friendly and helpful, the beach is uncrowded -- no competition for palapas -- our room was beautiful! They now provide free netbooks to guests for internet access, so I did not have to lug my laptop down to Aruba. They also provide reusable water bottles to cut down on plastic consumption, what a great idea! A very nice breakfast buffet is included in the price of the room, including eggs cooked to order and a different "special" every day, such as johnny cakes stuffed with beef, or Dutch Corn Cakes with spicy sauce. The buffet also has a large assortment of breads and bagels, fruit, cheese, sliced meats, yogurt, potatoes, sausage and bacon, oatmeal, juice, etc. You can even get a latte or cup of cappucino! This was our third stay at the Bucuti and, while my husband was checking in, I stepped into the hotel store for Gouda cheese and crackers, only to find a "welcome back" package in our room containing the same cheese and crackers along with cookies, a split of champagne and Aruba Aloe lotion! Nice surprise! The location is great, cabfare to Orangestaad or to the high-rise area was less than $10.00, and there is a convenient bus stop right in front. There are several restaurants within walking distance, and the Alhambra casino is right next door. We used to stay at the Marriott, but the beach there is much too crowded and noisy. The Bucuti is quiet and calm, and there are no children running around kicking up sand! We will never stay anywhere else on Aruba.

Bucuti has the best beach hotel location

We walked through several of the neighboring and highrise area hotels and their beach size and palapas to quest ratio did not compare to Bucuti. The Bucuti staff were excellent, very friendly, helpful and we never felt rushed when making reservations with the conciege. Overall this was one of the best vacations I've taken through Apple.

We just returned from spending six nights at the Bucuti & Tara Resort and I can not say enough good about our experience. It was perfect in every way. We were celebrating our 50th Anniversary and traveled with four other family members. Everyone had a great time. The beach is so beautiful with plenty of umbrellas and chairs for everyone. It is an Adult only resort, which is wonderful when you are older especially. The staff was truly amazing and could not do enough for you. I hope to return again in the future. Thank you to everyone at the Bucuti for making our special anniversary truly special.

Magical place

This was our second stay at Bucuti Beach and it won’t be our last. Fantastic beach great service. Everyone has a smile to make you feel welcome. The rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable. Relaxing on the beach and watching the sunset is amazing.

Awesome Beach and Great Attention to Guests!

Bucuti is not to be compared with other resorts. Their beach is the best on the island, and they go to great lengths to pamper their guests. We truly enjoy the opportunity to relax at such a wonderful place.

Bucuti & Tara from the very first moment exceeded any and all expectations. Checkin was met with champagne, and brought promptly to our room. Welcome gifts were wonderful! Hotel staff is extremely friendly, always willing to help you in anyway possible. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Aruba. If you have it on your list, as well as others, you can cross all the other ones off and select Bucuti, dont waste any more time on the decision! We traveled in May 2018 and will be back as soon as possible, hopefully before May 2019!

Great Place

This is the place if you want to just relax and enjoy the beach..The beach was great and for being fully booked there was plenty of room on the beach we never felt crowded... The staff service was great. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating to our needs. The resort was beautiful and clean and the rooms were great The food was great must try the burger.. Keep in mind the resort is adult only but the beach is not..
