Aruba - Bucuti or Amsterdam?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Aruba for our anniversary in October. The kids will be staying at home. We are looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation at a 4 star resort. I would like to lie on the beach and read a book. We will also explore the island. We don't go to casinos or bars. We enjoy dining and red wine, but don't really drink besides that. We are nonsmokers and I can't stand the smell of smoke.

We want to be in the Eagle Beach area and don't want all inclusive because we want to explore different restaurants and pick up a couple of groceries. I have been looking at the Tara Suites at Bucuti & Tara and the 1 bedroom suites at Amsterdam Manor and here are my thoughts:

The pool at Amsterdam looks a little small, there is no fitness centre, and the beach is across the street, though that particular road may not be too busy. The 2 bedroom suites are probably booked frequently by families with kids. Are there lots of kids there?

I'm not sure the size of the pool at Bucuti - it actually may not be bigger than Amsterdam. Breakfast is included at Bucuti. The dine around plan will not suit us. It sounds like most of the place is nonsmoking. Bucuti is also adults only. However, with public beaches I'm sure we will see kids at some point.

Bucuti is about $1000 more for a week vacation. Is it worth it?
