The week of September 22nd was our 3rd time to Bucuti and I decided to wait and let the experience sink in a few weeks. First, we will return to our piece of paradise in Aruba next year. Secondly, new gym - loved it. New Elements restaurant - pure class. Carte Blanche - an unbelievable dining experience and excellent hosts....

I can't say enough about how great this hotel is! This was a new place for us to stay on our third trip to Aruba and we were nervous about changing from what we had known. In fact, our original plans had been to do a split stay and go back to the hotel we had previously stayed at before...

My husband Jason and I recently held our wedding on Eagle Beach in front of Bucuti and stayed at Bucuti for our honeymoon. The wedding turned out amazing, largely because of Bucuti's wedding planner Nashette Wouters. I had never visited Aruba before we arrived for our wedding, and it turns out I didn't need to. With Nashette's guidance and coordination,...
