“One Happy Island!”

We had such a lovely stay in Aruba at the amazing Bucuti and Tara Resort. Our included breakfast was delicious and service was always smiling and friendly, especially Ms. Lina, and our omelet station ladies. The housekeeping staff and landscapers were pleasant and, Beverly, from the towel hut, was sweet and hospitable.

The beach was expansive and we were graciously placed on the ‘turtle list’ and witnessed hatchlings make their descent to the ocean every our first morning. We walked to Ellioti’s restaurant from the Resort a few times during our stay for a great Italian dinner. Relaxing and get ready for amazing sunsets!

“Amazing and Beautiful”

I cannot say enough about how amazing the Bucuti & Tara is. From the very warm welcome when you arrive to the incredible staff. First and foremost, I must mention the Bartender Karen at the Sand Bar. She is attentive, extremely friendly and remembered our name and specific dietary requests and drink preferences every day.

All the bartenders were amazing and attentive, Jessica, John, Greg, and Aldrich. My husband also used the beach service every day and Carlos, Manuel and Josh were fantastic and extremely friendly and also always knew what he wanted. You just put the flag up on your chair and they are there within minutes. Everyone at the concierge was very helpful both in responding to emails before we arrived and with making dinner reservations when we were there. We would highly recommend the romantic dinner in the Cabana and make sure you request the sunset seating.


My husband and I just returned from a 9 night stay at the Bucuti & Tara for our honeymoon and we could not have asked for a better trip! Everything about this resort was amazing. The hotel was clean and modern with great amenities (I did not even know that a tv inside your bathroom mirror was a thing!) They offered us champagne on arrival and provided a complimentary bottle in our room as well. We also received stainless steel water bottles in an effort to reduce plastic usage. It convenient to have over the course of our stay. Each room also had a refrigerator and microwave, which was nice for all of those leftovers that we had from our dinners. The bathrooms had shampoo, soap, and body lotion from Aruba Aloe, which was surprisingly great. We even went to one of the stores to buy some to bring home. Overall, I was impressed by the quality of the hotel room and the amenities.
