Hotel Overview

This boutique-style resort on Aruba's Eagle Beach caters exclusively to adults 18+, and is far from the crowds and high-rise hotels.

Fresh local ingredients, a fusion of delicious flavors, and warm and gracious service create a memorable culinary experience. The stylish beachfront setting offers you the opportunity to enjoy the sea breeze, listen to the lapping waves of the ocean, and relax in the modern lounge-like atmosphere. The restaurant offers an extensive American buffet breakfast as well as a varied a la carte lunch menu. In the evenings, diners can expect fresh seafood and juicy prime steaks on the dinner menu. The restaurant manager would be happy to help you make a selection from the eclectic wine list, with many by-the-glass options.

Freshwater swimming is available in a 50-by-25-foot pool. The sundeck is furnished with lounges, umbrella tables, and a spa tub.

    Most Romantic Anniversary Vacation Ever

    This was our 2nd time staying at Bucuti and Tara and we could not have had a better experience. We were greeted by Frank who had just as much energy as he did when we were last there 5 years ago. From there James (our concierge) checked us in where we were also greeted by Rik. James even remembered that he was the one that checked us in 5 years ago! The room was clean and beautiful. Perfect view of the gorgeous beach and ocean. The most fabulous addition is the hotel App. You can reserve umbrellas on the beach or by the pool the night before. No more getting up early to put towels down. BEST APP EVER!!! The resort is very quiet and relaxing! We ate at Elements our 1st and last night and the food and service was just as wonderful as we remembered. Everyone at Bucuti is always so happy, personable, positive and helpful. We would like to specifically acknowledge, Nakaid and the entire breakfast staff, Vincent (Happy Happy), James, Arlyne, Carlo, Frank, and so many others that always greeted us with a hello and genuine smile! We can't thank you all enough for creating the perfect vacation for us! We will definitely be back!

    Perfection That Somehow Gets Better Every Year

    We recently enjoyed our 9th stay at Bucuti. Though we already thought it was perfect, every year there are improvements. This year they have added a system of reserving your umbrella and chairs for the day instead of getting up at the crack of dawn to get one – especially if you want the front row. For the repeaters do not fear, this is a great idea! There is an Ipad in your room and at 5:00 p.m. you can reserve your umbrella in the privacy of your own room. If you have problems doing so, the staff are more than willing to help you reserve one. The towels are already on your chairs when you go out onto the beach in the morning. No more getting towels every day and returning them when leaving the beach each day. The only drawback to this was that we missed seeing Anchie and Beverly every day. However, you can still visit them at the Towel Hut. We loved the new water containers. They kept water colder much longer than the previous ones. We are both using them at work and have a daily reminder of Bucuti. We cannot give enough praise to the staff. Each year we are greeted with such kindness and warmth. It truly is our home away from home and we look forward to seeing all of the staff that make our stay so perfect. We have realized that our vacations are truly paradise because of where we stay. Bucuti and the staff there are what makes Aruba so special to us. We feel blessed to have found Bucuti when we were looking for a place to honeymoon years ago. Thank you Bucuti for another perfect stay in paradise! See you in 300 and some days.
