Blue Jac Tar is a bit of an adventure to get to but when you do its worth the tranquility and the service. All the way from receiving us at the front desk to the staff escorting you to the your rooms and table service at the included breakfast... awesome staff! The rooms are very comfortable, well equipped and spacious.... More

The rooms was clean. When ever we called for something. It was no problem. Enjoyed the staff. The grounds were kept clean. The breakfast was excellent, fruit was fresh, i loved the omelet. One night needed ice about five times, no problem. Spent most of time local areas. I would recommend it to any who wants to get away to... More

My friend and I stayed at Blue Jack Tar for 4 nights when we were on a tobacco tour. I have to say the service was great! All the staff were quick to respond to whatever service we needed/requested. Rooms are spacious, and comfortable. It is an older resort in the Playa Dorada complex but has been remodeled and is... More

Just ended a 5-day stay, my second one this year, the last one being 5 months ago. This visit totally confirmed the very good impression I got the first time of a well-run and very pleasant establishment with comfortable rooms, excellent food and very attentive service. Elaine, who appears to be now overseeing the front desk, impressed me with her... More

At this time of year, this was a bargain and a delight. We were practically alone on the beach. Restaurant was excellent and the service was matchless. The four poster canopy geds on the beach were very special. Relaxing in affordable luxury.

This is a difficult review for me to write, because the staff of this hotel is very good. The problem is that this hotel has some serious deficiencies, and is definitely not for everyone. The good things: Nice room, very nice staff, good (single) restaurant, and strong free wifi. The bad things: 1) This sprawling complex is really a real... More

It is worth the stay to experience the friendliness of the employees. Each one goes out of his way to make it special. This is a clean and pleasant place to stay. The breakfast is outstanding. We love returning here.

This hotel is amazing! My husband and I would give it 10 stars if we could. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They take pride in their job and it shows. The restaurant is probably the best I've ever been to bar none! The hotel, grounds, restaurant, beach, and pool spotlessly clean all the time. The four poster giant... More

JackTar was excellent. The room was very clean and comfortable, with a little outdoor patio. The beach beds were a great way to relax and take in the beautiful waters of Playa Dorada. Definitely the best way to go on the beach as the surrounding all-inclusive resorts seemed cramped and dingy. The restaurant - Green JackTar - was absolutely amazing!... More
