"Welcome home, so good to see you again". This is how Mario greeted us when we stepped out of the car from the airport . Our second visit here was better than the first.

After some research and reading reviews of Bucuti & Tara my husband and I decided this looked like a great place to vacation. Where do I start? Upon arriving to the property we were greeted so warmly by Frank who immediately wanted to make sure we did not carry any of our bags. He was amazing and brought us right...

Just returned from a first stay at Bacuti & Tara Beach Resort. The check-in and greeting in the lobby with a glass of champagne told us this was going to be a great experience. Everyone...and I mean everyone, was friendly, kind, fun, and eager to please. The owner even appeared at breakfast inquiring if everything was o.k. Our Tara suite...

This was our sixth visit and it seems to get better all the time. It's not for everyone, if activity and fast pace is your thing, it is not for you. If peace, quiet, and relaxation is your thing, it is a slice of paradise. From an overall perspective, the customer service is world class and the beach location is...

We are currently at Bucuti for our third trip and we love it here. However, it has always been a mystery to us how an hour before the towel shed opens at 7:00 A.m. , all of the lounge chairs in the front row have towels on them. My investigation based on anonymous sources, reveals that many guests retain their...

We just returned from our BEST Aruba trip ever and we have been to Aruba 26 times. After staying at timeshares and other resorts, we finally stayed at Bucuti.

Thank you for such wonderful words! We are worlds apart from the Ritz and the Palm Beach Area. We are a Four Diamond (4 stars) resort and not a 5 Diamond (5 star) resort, offering the peacefulness and tranquility only we can provide.
