One of the finest beach hotels we've stayed at
One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. Not the most elegant, its not a 4 star hotel, but what a comfortable, friendly, and enjoyable place to stay. Tremendous service, friendly staff, very helpful. Great bar on the beach, perfect for sunset viewing.

Great for couples
The hotel was great for a romantic getaway. However, one thing it lacked was a room service for food. Also, for the price they charge, the suite did not have Jacuzzi. The location was great and with amazing beach. There were many good restaurants in walking distance from the hotel.

Quiet & Relaxing
We just stayed at Bucuti & Tara for the past week. Had a great trip all-around, I've been to Aruba a few times before, we picked this place because of the great reviews on the internet. It is adults-only, which was a huge plus for us, and it certainly MUCH quieter than all of the other high rise hotels in the Northern part of Aruba. Lots of room on the beach, no fighting for chairs, no loud music, and there's room at the restaurant. Great up-to-date gym, everyone is delightful and always acknowledges you with a greeting and a smile, and good food all-around. We only ate at the main restaurant once for dinner, at a cabana on the beach, and it was nice. Had breakfast there every morning, which had a good variety and was tasty. If this sounds like your type of place, you can't go wrong!

A Nice Stay on Eagle Beach
Thank you for a fine stay, Bucuti, and also for the cute "Happy Birthday" sign on our door and the company bottle of wine. When next in Aruba, we will definitely return to Bucuti and hope to see those staff members who stood out to us—Frank the doorman (a hoot!); Yolanda in Elements, and Karen at the bar. We also loved two of the gentlemen serving us on the beach but regretfully, we neglected to get their names!
