The Tara Suite is basically a standard room with the addition of a seperate living room type area that can be closed off.

From the moment you get on the grounds of the Bucuti - Tara Resort you feel like you're being welcomed into the home of a family member.

My husband and I stay at Bucuti and Tara for five days in May and the experience was extraordinary. The staff was attentive, pleasant and genuine. It is a secluded only for adults hotel/resort with amazing beach front. Love their food (breakfast was included) at their restaurant Elements. They also have a fitness facility and romantic settings for dinner or/and happy hours. The rooms are beautiful, quite, clean and comfortable. These were affordable vacations in paradise.

Hadn't had a beach vacation in a couple of years, so my girlfriend and I spent some time considering a destination. We don't do cruises, and I wasn't interested in an all-inclusive resort as we didn't want to feel locked-down at a location. In reviewing options in Mexico and Turks and Cacaos, as well as the Hyatt and Marriot in Aruba, we settled for Bucuti and Tara...it sounded like a great place for a more private beach experience.

The food and drinks weren't as great as some of the other resorts we've been too but breakfast was solid each morning. The rooms also are pretty simple for the price point. However, those are easy trade offs to make for the wide expanse of beach and offering of comfortable lounge chairs with a great view. Additionally, the staff was very helpful with making reservations and offering suggestions for activities. We have kids, but an adults only resort made for a wonderful couples getaway.

A very beautiful resort on the most beautiful beach on Aruba. Outstanding service and ambiance. Elements and Carte Blanche are both excellent restaurants. It's worthwile to make a reservation at Carte Blanche long before your visit, because there is only room for 14 dinner guests per evening. The superieur room in the Bucuti building (room 216) was a bit old fashioned and too dark for our taste. We certainly have seen better bathrooms. Nevertheless, the whole stay was a great experience.

We stayed in a bungalow which was absolutely wonderful. We were steps from the pool and beach. The resort provided comfortable lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach as well as a beach bar. The staff was friendly and genuinely cared about their guests. They were attentive to the guests' needs. One of the best features was that it is an adults only resort. It was our 20th anniversary and the resort provided a cabana on the beach at night where we were served dinner on the beach with a... Read more

This was our first trip to Aruba and we are glad we stayed at Bucuti & Tara. The hotel is truly a hidden gem with spectacular service and excellent food quality. We stayed in the Tara Oceanfront Suite which was very spacious and steps away from the beach. Eagle Beach was by far the best beach we've ever been with super soft white sand, warm blue clear water, and no presence of seaweed in the ocean. We are definitely planning to come back to Bucuti & Tara next year.

We stayed on the Tara side of Bucuti and Tara, our room was a balcony overlooking the beach. The room was comfortable and had a great balcony that we could sit out and watch the sun set at night. We bought the meal plan which gave us access to the onsite restaurants as well as ~20 other restaurants both near the hotel and across the Island. The meal plan came out cheaper when we went to restaurants on the list. A couple of nights we ate at restaurants that were not on the list so we ended up... Read more

Some additional guest "perks" that were added since our last visit (eight years ago) are additional beach chaise lounges and umbrellas so there is no need to wake up early to "reserve" a spot. There is an umbrella set for each guest room. They have included "hooded" towels at th... Read more
