We stayed for 11 days. The staff was terrific and the rooms and resort were excellent. The beach was first rate and private no legions of annoying beach hawkers. Had an issue with our door at 11:00 pm and they had not less than 3 maintenance men on it. If you want to be treated like a king on paupers... More

We had a wonderful time and would recommend this resort to anyone who had a chance to visit. The staff was wonderful the restaurants were wonderful. The beach is fantastic!!! We happened to stay there because another resort we often frequent was not available. It was a wonderful stay and plan to visit there anytime we have a chance to.

We stayed here before our whale watching trip and loved it. The staff was excellent and the restaurant was very very good. I recommend it highly. The beach cabanas were comfortable and what a nice way to spent some time at the beach.

Just got back from a seven day visit. This place is still under development but the service and restaurant were fantastic. A good value, on the beach, however I don't recommend going into the ocean. Septic tank leakage has contaminated the water. Views of the golf course from most of the patios. Has a nice pool the rooms have good... More

We traveled to Puerta Plata in October and were struggling to decide between staying at one of the all inclusives in the area or Blue JackTar. Looking back I can't believe we had ever considered one of the all inclusives over this place - it was absolutely amazing and we had much more flexibility than we would have at one... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in October, and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation. I really can't say enough about the staff! From the minute we got there, they were so helpful and welcoming. We pretty much had the place to ourselves, and were able to get to know the staff pretty well. By the end of... More

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
