The property is beautiful! Located right on the beach the downside is they don't have any activities, the food only comes from one place and it's very expensive. It adds up. One thing I will say is that the staff is awesome! One morning I was very bored the girl was able to find me a para sailing and jetski... More

I stayed at Blue Jack Tar for a few nights in a Jr. Suite and was thoroughly impressed! The room is actually 3 rooms, and is huge. The King bed is ultra-comfortable, and clean, the A/C works outstanding, the coffee machine was great, and the most amazing part was the huge Jacuzzi in the main room. Talk about romantic! The...
