Our arrival in the DR was filled with anticipation. We had rented a condo in Cabarete and we looked forward to a week of relaxation and beach time. Unfortunately our choice was not at all what we expected and we left after one night, which we spent searching for a new location. Luckily for us, I found Blue Jack Tar... More

We went on long weekend and it was great. It is an old hotel that was refurnished and renovated. Rooms are good in size, furniture, etc. the beach is great with a lot of space. They have beach beds that are awesome. The breakfast is very nice and you can have it in the garden. I will come back again.

We had to stay overnight in Puerto Plata and looked for places to stay. Finally we selected Blue Jack Tar, as it had some good reviews. In spite of good reviews, we had no high expectations - just another touristic sun and beach place.... We're we wrong? Big time wrong in fact. A very friendly reception awaited us - not... More

We selected this hotel on the basis of Trip Advisor's rating, and am I ever happy we did! The list of pluses, from room comfort to high quality of food, is a long one. Add the proximity to both the airport (with daily flights to most places of consequence) and the very pleasant city of Puerto Plata (with above-average restaurants... More

We did not want to stay at an all-inclusive resort with hundreds of people and recycled food so we opted for Blue JackTar after reading many positive reviews. There, we found... a clean, comfortable room with good air conditioning, a really great breakfast (continental & menu), free wifi throughout the complex, a beautiful, relaxing and peaceful beach. Love, love the... More

Have stayed in this hotel numerous times with family and friends and would highly recommend it. A great beach...to lay in a bed and pass the day away with a book. Friendly staff and a yummy breakfast included.

We stayed at the hotel in February 2014. Nice and cozy place. Quite premises, spacious rooms, nice service. Breakfast outdoor was charming, choice of food and the service was very pleasant. Overall tasteful and peaceful hotel. We came to Puerto Plato from Las Terrenas to visit our friends. They stayed nearby in a hotel “all inclusive”. So we took them... More

I have just returned from 2 weeks on the Dominican Republic and we chose Casa Colonial for our first 2 nights and Jack Tar for our last There are no true 5 star hotels in Puerto Plata despite the claims of Casa Colonial it falls disappointingly short. Jack Tar however does what it does perfectly and delivers an experience with... More

Had an amazing four night stay over Christmas. We were always greeted with a smile. The room (junior suite) was larger than expected, with a large bathroom. My boyfriend and went to relax but the staff was willing to arrange any activity we wanted. Beach was a few steps from our room. Delighted with our choice since we were looking... More
