    Been there in honeymoon, perfect for it. Place frequented by couples who want a quiet and luxurious vacation, in fact they do not allow the presence of children and adolescents. The place is magnificent and perfect for relaxing, my suite was very large and right on the beach. More choices for restaurant. The rest of the island is nice but doesn't offer much, it's not the classic Caribbean island.

    Happiest place on earth!

    Whoever said Disney world was the happiest place on earth has never stayed at the Bucuti and Tara! Seriously if you stay here you will be forever unhappy with every other resort. The staff- always happy and always ready to help. They never want you to be the least bit troubled. It’s as if each staff member owns a piece of this resort and cherishes it. For example I mentioned I had a sore throat and our waiter Garrett made every effort to help my throat and even had some special ginger, cayenne pepper tea made for me. The kitchen staff are amazing as well thank you guys! My throat felt so much better! And another example Luis on the beach worked all day in the heat and always checked on us and brought us things that he anticipated we needed without having to ask. The hotel- beautiful and well kept. Housekeeping is 2-3 times a day! And may I mention there is so minimal waste at this hotel. Very little use of paper products and plastics and they definitely do their part as far as keeping their island clean and I love their recycling program! The beach- perfect and calm and they create a romantic, mature atmosphere. No raunchy party music and no worries about a crowded beach. Literally the perfect atmosphere. I work in a client based business and this is exactly how I like a business to be run. I had never been at a resort that met my expectations until now. You guys are crushing it! Happy happy! Happy island! We’ll be back for sure!

    Excellent place to stay

    The room was awesome. The employees were great. The Sandbar and Elements have great food. Beach was amazing. Getting around and playing things to do was easy. Places to wander close to the hotel was available.

    Wonderful beach resort with impeccable service!

    We had an absolutely wonderful trip to Bucati. Everything about this resort is truly first rate. The rooms were extremely comfortable (and clean!), all of the staff is clearly coached in reaching out to offer help, or simply to say "good morning." The food was terrific and we especially enjoyed the private dining experience on the beach, in celebration of my wife's birthday. We will most definitely be back!
