Bucuti Beach Resort
- What's Included
This was my husband and my third visit to Bucuti & Tara, and again our visit was spectacular! The resort is adult only which is a huge draw for us, and even though typically full you never fill crowded. The staff is outstanding......from the owner who makes himself quite available to guests, to the doorman Frank (the face of Bucuti), to the staff at Elements, and those who serve at the beach side bar. I am not a big return visitor to places, as I feel there are so many places in this world to see, But the Bucuti & Tara have made me a believer it is well worth the return visits. The hotel sits on Eagle Beach, which was voted by Trip Advisor just recently as the 3rd best beach in the world. The sand is white, and the water crystal clear. The water can have strong currents, but is delightful to swim in. The sunsets, always around 6:50 pm, are gorgeous, and make sure to hit Happy Hour at the beach bar between 4 and 6 for half price drinks. After visiting many places on the island we have found we are happiest enjoying the beach and restaurants at or near the hotel. The included breakfast every morning is delightful with truly anything you could desire Elements for lunch and dinner also have a wonderful menu to chose from. For the last two years we have booked the sunset romantic dinner in the beach cabana, which is absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend. This year we also did a private deep sea fishing trip with Driftwood, and caught 3 Baracudas and 3 Tunas. When you get back to the marina you can walk to the restaurant, where they prepare the fish you caught, which was fabulous. I would highly recommend this if you enjoy being out on the ocean and fishing. Other tips, is if you have fine hair the easily tangles bring conditioner. The hotel uses the Aruba Aloe products, which I love, but the combined shampoo/conditioner is no match for my hair. Also bring cortisone cream is if you have sensitive skin. I could not find this on the island. The hotel has free washing and dryers, so I pack a small bottle of Woolite to wash out the swim suits, and detergent pods, so we can pack light. Be sure to bring a minimum of two swim suits, as you tend to live in them. Also I bring two 3 ounce bottles of sunscreen to get us started, but then opt to buy a large bottle of the Aruba Aloe 50 SPF which is a wonderful sunscreen and readily available. Truly I can not speak highly enough of this resort!
Everything about the Bucuti is amazing. All the staff are so friendly and a special mention to Mario out front and Margherita at breakfast. We saw the owner a number of times who was a,ways there to listen and see how you wre getting on. The beach isamazing and it makes a differece having enough chairs and umbrellas for everyone. Thank you Bucuti for showing how it should be done.
We stayed at the Tara Suites in September of 2016 for our 1-year anniversary. Only great things to say - very clean, great accommodations, the beach was lovely (a little windy, but the wind was welcome in that heat!) and staff was friendly and helpful. Carte Blanche was fabulous and fun. We were only there for a few days, but had a wonderful time and would recommend this hotel to anyone for a quiet, romantic getaway.
Search no more- Bucuti and Tara is the place to be. All the raving reviews are true and this is by far the best hotel on the island! It's situated on the best beach (Eagle Beach) with no water motor sports and noisy neighbours surrounding you. Customer service is superb at this resort and you really feel special for being a guest here.If you are looking for a true R&R, this is the place to be. If you feel like exploring outside of the hotel, taxi rides are only $12 each way into town. I strongly encourage you to take a stroll down the beach in town (aka high rise area), where you will see a crowded beach with guests practically laying on top of each other. At Bucuti- you don't have to fight over a sun bed with umbrella. All beach chairs are wicker with a very comfortable pad and they provide you with a cover and towel daily. The ocean is just steps away and there's no one to bother you to sign up for any activities. It's a true adults-only for romance, relaxation and peace and quiet. We would definitely return again and recommend this place to anyone seeking for an adults-only experience.
Attention to detail and consistency are the hallmarks of Bucuti & Tara. The owner interacts with the guests to inquire as to how satisfied guests are with the services. The employees are friendly and genuinely happy to work there. We received an upgraded room to the Tara Tower and the room was well appointed and very comfortable. We so enjoyed the dinner on the beach and our waiter Christian was attentive and made our experience memorable. We are repeat customers and will always consider Bucuti & Tara our home away from home while in Aruba.
