This has to be one of few places you can quickly reconnect with your significant other, because every single detail is taken care of by the Bucuti & Tara. Every single staff person, every meal, every cocktail and cold towel on the beach, every detail in the design of the setting....nothing was "less than". I can't recommend it highly enough.

I had thought that the happiest place on earth was Disney until I arrived at Bucuti & Tara and the overwhelming reception as if we were royalty led by Frank Bermudez and his happy smile (always!). And the experience continued to unfold and be better than the last. The beachfront breakfast was over the top led by the commander himself,...

Our luggage was retrieved out of the rental car and brought to our room. We were walked to our room and given a tour. The...

Believe all the great things written about this paradise. The shear number of repeat visitors speaks volumes... the relationships they have developed with the resort staff heart warming. The most beautiful beach + the most attentive staff = your best beach experience of your lifetime!

Our first trip to Aruba and the Bacuti & Tara Beach Resort was absolutely everything we could have wanted! The staff are amazing- so attentive, friendly and helpful and the accommodations were perfect. Our ocean view room was clean, comfortable and provided everything we needed for our week's stay. The beach chairs with umbrellas, towel service, beach bar/happy hour, gym,...

What a gem! My husband and I were looking for relaxing and adults only after having spent numerous vacations by the high rise hotels.
