Bucuti Beach Resort
- What's Included
This first time to Aruba was outstanding. The hotel and all the people that worked there was fabulous! I have not one complaint. We even when sightseeing and all the locals were so very nice. I highly recommend this hotel over any high rise there on the island
Beautiful resort, with amazing suites and the best beach in Aruba... The staff was just incredibly professional and made you feel as if you were the most important person on the Island. We are experienced travelers and I can say without hesitation that the entire staff was friendly and service oriented. Just incredible. Food was outstanding. Manuel on the beach, Robert in the Elements restaurant, and Jessica at the Sand Bar were three standouts. Just a fabulous place if you are looking to go to a beautiful beach to relax and feel as if you are a VIP...
My wife and I chose Bucuti and Tara for our first trip to Aruba based on Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. Bucuti and Tara is a small hotel in the low-rise area of Eagle Beach. There are two wings, the Bucuti wing and the Tara wing. We stayed in the Tara wing in which all rooms have patios or balconies that face the ocean. Our room was large and comfortable with sliding doors that could be closed to separate the sleeping area from the sitting room. If you are planning to stay in the Tara wing in 2017, note that it will be undergoing renovations. Our room showed some age, but it was very clean and well maintained. The rooms will no doubt be even nicer once the updates are completed in June.If you are looking for a quiet resort to relax, Bucuti and Tara is a great choice. It is adults only, but does not have a party atmosphere like some adult resorts. During our entire stay, we never heard any noise from other rooms or from the beach. It was extremely tranquil. It has a relatively small number of rooms and a large beach, so there is no competition for lounge chairs and umbrellas. Note that beach towels and lounge chair covers are self-serve, but are readily available as you walk out to the beach. Bucuti and Tara is a four star resort, not a five star, so adjust your expectations accordingly. They do not, for instance, offer room service or car service. The services they do offer, however, they do well. They have a nice spa, and my wife and I had a couples massage during our stay. They have plenty of concierge staff available to assist with planning activities and dinner reservations. Their beach service is also very good with flags attached to the lounge chairs to hail service, although we often walked up to their beachfront bar for drinks. Breakfast is included and is served buffet style in the beachfront restaurant or in the Tara wing. Breakfast is very good and offers plenty of hot and cold options, although it is not what I would call gourmet. Most of the better restaurants in Aruba are not far from the resort, although with the exception of Screaming Eagle, most are not within walking distance. Taxis were easy to get, however, and charged a flat rate of $9 to most of our destinations. There is a small casino next door to the resort for some nighttime fun. It is also a short taxi ride to the high-rise section with many of the larger hotels, casinos, and shops. The small size of this resort gave it a more personal feel. We were often greeted by name when returning through the main lobby. All of the staff were very friendly, including the owner who greeted us at breakfast and said goodbye as we checked out. If you need some rest and relaxation, this is a great place to stay.
My wife and I are first time guests but have stayed in Aruba on several occasions for our one week vacation. Bucuti and Tara was by far the most complete service oriented resort by far. Details and follow up were most impressive. From checkin to housekeeping to the manager coming around to each guest at breakfast to see how things were going. Before we left for home we have already booked for next year. Five stars is not enough they should get 7 stars. This is an adult only resort. Elements has a wonderful menu for lunch and dinner.
We've stayed at this adults-only beachfront hotel three times and we love it. Great service, fabulous experience, and reasonable prices. Stay in the Tara suites for an unparalleled view of the water from your private balcony. We stayed in a penthouse suite once which gets you a full kitchen and a private cabana on the beach, but we're just as happy with the less costly suites on the floors below.
