Best hotel in ArubaPosted May 10, 2017
We had read all the reviews of the Bucuti & Tara before booking, and figured if it was half as good as all the reviews said, we would be happy. Well, it was even better than the reviews! We loved everything about this resort and will be back as soon as we possibly can. They have thought of everything! It may seem like it is more expensive at first, but everything they include makes up for the few extra dollars. The free water bottles and free water around the resort was a great perk. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The free wi-fi allowed us to FaceTime or children each day. The towels fit the lounges perfectly and the lounge chairs were very comfortable, no plastic straps here! The staff was amazing and they even had a concierge available at 1am! We could find NOTHING that needed improvement! Truly the best vacation ! Thank you!!!

Ideal couple's getawayPosted May 4, 2017
What an amazing vacation! Custom service in all aspects was outstanding. Location is right on the beach; never a problem with chairs or umbrellas (they have more than they have guests). On site restaurant is good enough to attract guests from other locations. Made reservations for next year after day three; extended it before we left!

One Happy ResortPosted Apr 26, 2017

SuperbPosted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: It's extremely mellow, and the adults-only policy makes it a nice haven, especially for parents needing a respite from the daily routine.
Cons: I can't think of one way to improve the experience.
Location: Eagle Beach is a much mellower alternative to the high rises on Palm Beach. 20 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes to some of the best restaurants.
We spent five blissful days here, and cannot wait to return. Every single detail was accounted for, every staff person was lovely, professional and attentive.

Pros: No kids. Staff very attentive to everyone's needs. Quiet on the beach and poolside. Beautiful setting.
Cons: The only thing negative was the breakfast. We have had a better breakfast buffet at Fairfield Hotel. They need to put out oatmeal and a couple of waf
Great hotel. Clean, friendly staff. Frankie the lobby attendant does a great job as does Beverly the towel lady.

First Class operationPosted Mar 25, 2017 on Orbitz
Cons: Can't think of anything they could do better, and I don't often say that about a Resort.
Location: Good local restaurants, but didn't care for Aruba -- too commercial and downscale compared to other Caribbean islands; e.g, Antigua and St.Lucia.
The Resort was exceptional -- great location, fabulous beach, well-appointed rooms with good views, and very helpful and attentive staff.

Perfect place to RelaxPosted Mar 23, 2017
If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the beach in peach and quiet, this is the place. At anytime, there were only one or two people in the water. So pretty much you have the beach to yourself and experience as its your own private beach. If you are interested in crowded beaches and like a lot of company, then you need to chose another beach.
