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.

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.

As I walked through the Bucuti and Tara for an entire week, I tried my best to figure out why this place is so different then the rest. Is it the spa? Was it the beach? Maybe the guest rooms? The pool? Was it the restaurants? Maybe the property itself? Was it the constant mention of nature and preserving the landscape? My conclusion, although those things are great, it was none of those things. After reading through reviews for months prior to my trip, every past client made mention of employees by name. In MY opinion, those employees are why the Bucuti and Tara is different from the rest. I could name off multiple employees but as a whole their efforts and desire to exceed your expectations define what the Bucuti and Tara is all about. Cheers to the man mopping the floors everyday! Cheers to the lady’s passing out towels with big smiles on their faces. Cheers to the owner and managers for hiring those people and training them. We arrived stressed and left blessed thanks to the employees. I don’t know when or how we shall return but the Bucuti and Tara has made us feel like a part of the family.

My husband and I first came to Bucuti 3 years ago for our honeymoon. This place is so special. Everyone here goes above and beyond to make your stay perfect. The food is excellent. I love that it’s adults only, too. Perfect for a honeymoon. It’s clean and extremely safe! Also there are TWO happy hours and a healthy hour with half priced healthy smoothies. They’re passion for the environment and for local products is great too. Everything is eco friendly and green. They also have a variety of activities (yoga, personal training, nutritional classes, and more) that make your stay one of a kind. I love everything about this place and if I only come here for the rest of the vacations I take in life that is FINE by me!! I also love that there is a pool option AND a beach option. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway LOOK NO FURTHER. You can thank me later. 😉

Relax and Enjoy
