Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort - Adults Only, Oranjestad
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

An unforgettable vacation
What a fantastic experience. Staff were welcoming and always went above and beyond. The adults only aspect made it very relaxing and easy to sink into vacation mode.

Quiet Resort with Amazing Staff!
We stayed at two different resorts on the island, and this was by far the best one! Bucuti and Tara is located on Eagle Beach in the low rise hotel area, and because of that, is a bit more quiet...perfect for couples. The staff is perfectly attentive, polite, and pleasant. We truly enjoyed our time at Bucuti, and will recommend to everyone we know! If you are looking for a quiet resort that feels secluded, Bucuti & Tara is the place to go.
