The grounds at this resort are beautiful. We stayed one night to check it out for future group travel. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. The Villa was clean, well kept and right on the golf course. The short walk to the beach was easy and the Beach was beautiful and clean!! Breakfast was included and had everything... More

It was quite quiet & relaxing and clean. Probably not the resort for the partying kind of customer. Good Wi-fi and had bottled water each day. I walked to the Fortress San Filipe but it was a bit far & through some questionable park areas off the resort area. Best to take a cab or authorized motorbike for safety reasons.... More

This was by far the nicest hotel that I have stayed at in Puerto Plata with a couple of caveats. First caveat is that there were literally only ten other people at the hotel, it was like I was walking around an abandoned luxury resort which is great for you if you go but I can't possibly believe that this...

It's a beautiful hotel. Clean, good service, tranquil and overall wonderful environment and staff. They also give you fresh bottles of water everyday so you don't have to keep buying bottled water unlike many other hotels in DR I have stayed at. My only complaint is the walls of the room seem to be a little thin. I can hear... More

The hotel and service was great 20 years ago but now it is definitely on the downside. The room was not worth what I paid even though we had a jacuzzi. The food at the restaurant took way too long and the fish was very dry and awful. We ordered to have the food delivered to our room only to... More

Dear Customer We deeply regret that expectations during your stay at our hotel were not covered to your satisfaction. From what I can read in your commentary, you visited the property 20 years ago, when it was a 300 rooms All Inclusive. For the last three years, we have become a hotel of 70 rooms on a bed and a...

This hotel looked like it has seen better days. It was run down. The room specifically had a bad mattress and the AC stopped working on our last day. The beach area was nice and spacious. They have beds on the beach which look great in pictures but the mattresses hidden by the sheets are quite questionable. The pool was... More

Great place, made better by walking up and down the beach and seeing the massive crowds at adjacent resorts. IE, we had no trouble getting beach lounges or beds. Big, sandy beach. We were just there for two nights so didn't partake in any of the other facilities (pool, tennis, etc.). We ordered some junk food from the beach cafe... More

They even washed our car! We got a great room closed to the restaurant and the beach path. It was raining so not much we could do. This place has a nice pool not heated, tennis courts, small soccer court, gym, and basketball court. It is inside a gated community and there are a few small souvenir stores in the... More

Note that you know there is the all inclusive hotel versus the non inclusive villas in the same complex. We thought when making our reservation it was for the all inclusive rate but found out differently when we arrived. The villas are falling apart and the facilities are not well cared for. There is a private beach and restaurant within... More

Our family has traveled around the Dominican Republic and stayed in many hotels, both in the Puerto Plata area and beyond. We decided to stay in the Playa Dorada complex for a few nights, and booked last minute, so the Blue Jack Tar was one of the only available options. Pros- very good breakfast, probably the best that I've had... More
