I spent three nights here. The good: Rooms, beach and resort are clean. Price per night is reasonable. The beach itself is nice. Resort seems secure. The bad: Food was poor and overpriced, as were the drinks (though I understand that you get fleeced for alcohol in a resort). Getting the attention of the wait staff could be difficult, especially...

My company brought 90 guests down to the Dominican Republic and stay at Blue Jack Tar. What a great experience! The grounds were beautiful, the food was great and the service was exceptional. We will certainly be returning next year!

We followed tripadvisor advice and stayed at Blue Jack Tar for 2 nights in Jan 2014. We were very pleased! Lush, expansive grounds, with rooms set in clusters around the property. Go for the deluxe or higher if you can. Our deluxe room had a view of the golf course from the private balcony and we enjoyed the birds, as... More

I just returned from a weeklong trip. I was supposed to stay at Be Live Grand Marien up the road but they oversold and I ended up here after going through a long battle with Expedia.

This was my first stay at this hotel which I booked via Expedia.com. It's one of approximately 16 hotels in the Playa Dorada complex which is the first tourist complex in the country. It's not fancy but nicely laid out into villas or single units. I think that there were about 4 units in our two story building. The rooms... More

Staff was excellent all around. Beach area clean and an assortment of areas to relax depending on your mood. Restaurant food delish and no watered down drinks. Close to shopping and right on the golf course what more could you ask for
