We didn't stay at blue Jack, but rented a house in a nearby residential area. We found Blue Jack when looking for a beach to go to. It is fantastic. We found their beach, their bar and their restaurant to be the best. They have a chocolate brownie ice cream sundae that we became addicted to. The best thing was their personal accommodating personnel. My husband is handicapped, but on a few days we brought him to the beach. On the first day, the beach platform had a slight step to get up to it. Difficult for the handicapped. Three days later when we went back, they were staining a small ramp that was built. They said that they realized that they needed to make it more handicapped accessible when it was difficult for my husband. I thought that was amazing. Thank you Blue Jack and your wonderful staff.

The food in the Green Jack restaurant is fantastic! I strongly recommend a visit and suggest you try the french fries as they are very special! I also suggest you order a Lavazza coffee here as it's the best cappuccino you will find in town! You don't have to be a guest here either, if you're staying near by it is definitely worth having lunch or dinner here.

A great place!
My family and I go to BJT every weekend. We had a great time in the beach area. My kid loves it, and has fun in the playground.
The restaurant is great and has an extraordinary staff.
Some nights you may be able to find a lounge ambiance with live music.
Highly recommended!

This property is a not an all inclusive although a complete, real and well done breakfast is included for two. The breakfast lounge (also the restaurant by day) has a great view of the peaceful lawns. The beach area is right over the lawns and it was spectacularly tranquil with great canopy beach beds. Only a couple of other guest were there as the hotel was sparsely occupied.

The room was great, really well finished with flat screen tv and comfortable mattress. Great hot water and quiet ac and fan.
FYI.... I arrived driving my own vehicle instead of in a taxi/shuttle and Security at the front entrance seem protective and maybe a bit abrupt, since they thought I was a local but thats probably just me nitpicking. Overall it was good, prompt service by all. I recommend this place when gotten at the right price and I will be back.
