My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon at Bucuti in the Tara suites last week and I'm going through withdrawals as I write this review because everything about the hotel was amazing!

I want to rate them 10 stars but 5 is the max! We stayed at Bucuti for 16 nights from 5/10 through 5/26, and had a great time as always. This was our 5th stay at Bucuti since 2010, and I've already booked another 5 night stay for the end of October. The frequency of our visits says it all!...

Our entire experience was amazing, from the time we booked with Beach Bum Vacation, and Sarah, to the week spent at Bucuti. First of all, everything was well planned out by Sarah, and she consistently stayed in touch so we knew exactly what to expect. The transportation from the airport, to the hotel was as expected. Frank greeted us, and...

We were in Aruba for just one week and stayed at different hotels to get a better feel of the island as this was our first time there.
