World’s Most Romantic Resort
This is the best and most romantic resort in the world! The beach is breathtakingly perfect. The service is superb! They will bring you food and drinks to your beach lounger (and they have more loungers than guests so you never have to worry about having one). The Elements restaurant is delicious and vegan friendly. We recommend the private romantic beach dinner (reservation required). The facilities are newly renovated and up-to-date. They offer champagne at arrival, and then a conceirge completes your check-in in your room (with advance online check-in) with thorough explanations. They leave thoughtful surprises throughout your stay. They are LGBT-friendly, adult-only (but allow small dogs), eco-conscious, and wellness-encouraging. The people make this resort: from Frank at the door, Stefano at check-in, Jon at the bar, Juan at breakfast, and Vincent on the beach! The breakfast buffet is included and is delicious. It was our best vacation ever!

Best vacation
If you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation look no farther. This hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed at. The staff is amazing they are so friendly and more than willing to help you with anything we used the concierge to book all of our excursions, Frank the doorman welcomes you back as if you are family. The breakfast is delicious and Juan will keep you smiling while Paco (he is their rescued parrot) will make you laugh. The beach is stunning and there is always plenty of lounge chairs for everyone. There is WiFi throughout the entire property including the beach.

Aruba + Bucuti and Tara = One Great Vacation!
Bucuti & Tara Resort is absolutely amazing. ALL the staff went above and beyond to make our stay in Aruba great! We will definitely return in the future to Bucuti & Tara. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a place in Aruba, that is not crowded and adults only. We walked the beach almost every day and the other resorts, up and down the coast, do not even begin to compare to the beach area and space afforded to you at Bucuti. Thanks Bucuti & Tara for making our first trip to Aruba great and we look forward to staying with you again in the future.

Outstanding!!!
Great Adults only resort since there appeared to be lots of children in surrounding resorts and restaurants. Even the restaurant on site was adults only! This resort had superb service,was impeccably clean, and phenomenal views from our Tara suite. Already planning to stay here next year. Nice amenity was microwave in the room for restaurant left overs the next day for lunch
