Fodor's Review

An extraordinary beach setting, impeccable personal service, and attention to detail help this elegant Green Globe resort easily outclass anything else on the island. It's also extremely LGBT-friendly and the only luxury boutique adult-only hotel on the island. Recently refurbished suites and rooms in both buildings and a new modern indoor/outdoor dining room. Elements has a stellar sea view and a great selection of healthy, organic, and even vegan fare that add to the allure. Hacienda-style buildings are surrounded by ecologically sensitive landscaping cresting a gorgeous pool and whirpool and they are right across the street from the new Alhambra Mall full of shops, dining and a casino. Bucuti rooms are done in cool creams and feature walnut furnishings; the Tara Suites have unbeatable beach and sunset vistas. All rooms operate in an unparelled eco-friendly manner without sacrificing luxury. Book early as they are typically 98% full.

Absolutely Wonderful!

We stayed in the Tara wing first week in March and loved everything about this resort. The beach was excellent the view from our balcony was perfect (our room was perfect), the staff were all friendly and helpful. (feather pillows would be a nice addition, my only complaint...but who goes here to sleep?!)

Perfect little getaway

Bucuti is a flawlessly keep property on beautiful Eagle Beach The friendliest most polite staff I have encountered. My wife and I stayed at the Tara Suites though a bit small for a suite the room was beautifully decorated and we had a incredible view of the Eagle beach. Bucuit offers a great alternative to the high rise hotels and we defiantly will stay there again on our next visit to Aruba I would not recommend getting the meal plan. The Pirate

Nest is fair at best but with so many great restaurants on the island it does not matter. Just get the breakfast plan. They provide a very nice continental breakfast located in the Tara Suite.

Low-key and Lovely

My husband and I recently spent a week at Bucuti for our one year anniversary and loved it. We stayed in the Tara Suites - the rooms were spacious, clean and very nice. We were steps from the beach. Staff is wonderful. We especially liked how much more quiet/lowkey Bucuti was compared to the big resorts on the strip which we visited some nights. Also like the no-children policy at Tara Suites - I do think this is a draw giventhe many other family

friendly resorts. I hope Bucuti sticks with "dscouraging" guests to bring their children.
