My husband and I just stayed at Bucuti for a 5 night vacation. Bucuti is a small, quiet, adults-only resort hotel. If you are looking for a little rest and relaxation without the typical resort noise and activities, this is the perfect place to be. The beach is spectacular! The rooms are top-notch. We opted for a junior suite with...

Love this place - we will be back. Many here are return visitors, and I can see why. Very friendly staff - from the minute you arrive. Beautiful grounds and beach - what a huge swath of beach for only 100 rooms. Ensures plenty of space for relaxation. Great bar area with seating for meeting people, or for hanging out...

Dear Parisprints, Serenty, peace, love and happiness, these are the attributes that make around 70% of our guests come back, year after year. This unique group of associates and the lack of hoopla and activities and the tranquility that permeates the place, are the contributing factors. There are many outstanding resorts in Aruba but none as peaceful and well attended....

The concierge staff and the doorman were just fantastic. Wonderful service overall. A beautifully laid out hotel right on the beech with a good restaurant on a deck overlooking the ocean. We took a couple of great boat trips arranged by the concierge. They make everything very fun and easy.

My wife and I recently just stayed at Bucuti; what an enjoyable time we had. From Frank at the front door to Robinson at our romantic dinner on the beach. We were well served everyday by Mr. Orville on the beach; he is great! Cannot wait to go back to Aruba and Bucuti!
