Very high staff to guest ratio and every single staff person is happy, engaging, and service oriented. They personify the Aruba theme of “One Happy Island”. The facility is private, the beach is beautiful, the water perfect. Excellent food and beverages. Very nice gym. We will go back!

We arrived home from spending a week at Bucuti in June. It lived up to and surpassed all expectations. We stayed at Bucuti around 4 years ago and decided post vaccine it was a great place to return to. Rooms are spotless, beach is so clean and spacious, food is tasty, and location on the island is where you want to be. Low rise area is much quieter than the high rise. Two staff members that made our trip were Angela and Margarita (sorry i know this not the spelling :) ) in the Tara suite breakfast. Every morning they worked so hard taking care of everyone. Omelletes, dutch pancakes, cappuccinos, oatmeal, etc. nicest people and was a great start to every day. Beach service was very good as well. If I had to say one critique it would be the new menu at Sandbar. Menu lacks the basic light salad choices or more options. I’m not a very picky eater, but just surprised some basic wraps or a few salads arent on there. All in all, it was a tremendous stay. We absolutely loved it and caught every sunset before dinner sitting on those comfy couches. Aruba is ready for visitors and very safe. Nicest people too. Reach out if you have any questions.

By far the best resort on Aruba, period. It's quiet, clean, staff are amazing and the location on Eagle Beach is far away from the mass people either downtown or in Palm Beach -both only about 10 minutes either direction. I stayed here on a solo vacation for 10 days - it was a big splurge but I am so glad I did it! Breakfast every morning was amazing and the wellness activities onsite were fun and appreciated. *Next door at Manchebo Bay Resort is an outdoor yoga studio with classes in the morning or at night. I had a slight medical emergency during my stay and within 2 minutes of calling the front desk they had the doctor call me who prescribed me topical antibiotics I picked up 5 minutes later at the Pharmacy thats 2 blocks away - Phenomenal Service! The Tara Suite is nice and spacious. The Spa offers massages and facials, they can even do nails although I didnt partake in nails onsite. Elements Resturant was delicious and the Beach Bar Food you can order from your Umbrella is perfect. I did not try Senses Resturant as I made other dinner reservations each night but I heard from other guests that Senses is an amazing experience. Everyone I met and interacted with at the Bucuti Resort or on any of the Excursions was amazing - I even met a local, Mike, who does private tours and is amazing - I cant recommend him enough - find him on Instagram: Amazonmike Overall, Bucuti and Tara did not disappoint - it is an excellent choice, I had an amazing stay here. Do it!!
