My Dad, my brother and I, stayed for an all inclusive week. We wanted to relax, see some ruins, and "hang out". We loved the stay. The staff was outstanding, especially Fernando who worked down at the Beach Bar. He made sure that we were taken care of at all times. Plenty of food, drink and entertainment. The staff worked...

Had a wonderful time here the staff were brilliant especially JoseJuan and Paolo. Has a great location right on the beach. Stayed all inclusive and was impressed by the standard of food and drinks. Entertainment was good too. Well worth paying a little extra for the better rooms. Had a top floor room with a nice balcony overlooking the ocean... More

My husband and I stayed at the Jack Tar on our Honeymoon just before Christmas in 2001. We absolutely LOVED it. We were a little worried when the coach pulled up outside, having dropped other visitors off at various swanky hotels, as it did look a bit shabby and past its sell by date. We needn't have worried. Once through... More

Excellent beach. Average food. Smallish rooms, but nicely appointed. Fun, if amatureish, entertainment. Great lobby bar. Fun community games. Bottom line: great hotel for the money. There are, of course, much nicer places; Jack Tar Village nicely fills the gap in between total economy (read "cheap") and total luxury.

We travel to Cancun annually and this was our first stay at Jack Tar. It was the best trip ever! The staff was amazing, catering to whatever we needed. The entertainment staff was phenomenal and made the whole trip worthwhile. I will definitely stay there again.

The best holiday I ever had. The people of Cancun are a breath of fresh air, they work so hard to ensure you have a good holiday. Food, drink and service are second to none at the Jack Tar. The sea is the colour of a blue Topaz, the beach is of the palest sand. I want to go back.
