“Great food and lovely atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

When I came across this place I was lurred in by the 4 poster beds on the beach. Decided to have a drink here and was offered fresh fruit juices, cocktails and other standard drinks. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. I also had lunch here a couple of times too and the food was well prepared and tasty. The beds on the beach were comfy and was very relaxing with a cocktail in hand and a good book in the other with a fantastic view.

“Fresh morning start, breakfast under the Almendro trees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

Having breakfast with my husband last Sunday under the Almendro trees with golf course view and a soft sea breeze was an unusual treat. The Green Jack restaurant's outdoor breakfast is served under the huge Almendro trees on weekends. We were staying at the San Marino's next door and decided to walk in for a nice meal before we hit the road back to Santo Domingo. We can call this brunch, cause we showed up at about 10:30 am. Service was excellent, food too! You had choice between buffet or a la carte. Tropical fruits and a selection of cheese and pastries started our day. Perfectly cooked omellette, warm bread and hot coffee served with a smile. All for under US15/person. It was a wonderful weekend out in Puerto Plata, gem of the Dominican north shores.

“Green Jack Whack!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Originally, we were drawn by the fabulous photos on Trip Advisor… Super misleading! The photo(s) left out the fact that there was an abandoned hotel directly adjacent to Green Jack. Bad vibe! The photo were dark and sexy… meanwhile the place was lit up like Times Square! The service was average and food was run-of-the-mill bar food. Not the place you expect to have dinner at whilst on vacation! By the way, we stayed at one of the sexiest hotels nearby… Casa Colonial... and travel first class all the time, so this is not a bogus review from first time travelers. Too bad!

“Very nice visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

We stayed nearby at the Casa Colonial Hotel and ventured off the grounds for dinner out at Green Jack one evening. If you're staying at the Casa Colonial, an employee will drop you off and pick you up via golf cart (no charge), which is very convenient. The restaurant isn't particularly fancy, but it's good food at a very reasonable price. We ordered a ton of food, some bottled water, and 6 cocktails, and walked out paying about $110 for two people. Highlights included the steak and the conch ravioli. Friendly service, too. Would recommend to those staying at the Casa Colonial looking for a more casual, inexpensive meal.

“Great Food, Service, and Ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

My family stayed in Playa Dorada in March 2014 and we chose to not stay in an all inclusive resort. Even if you do, I would recommend going at least 1 night to Green Jack to enjoy some really good food at a reasonable price for the quality and service you get. In the DR, dinner is not a race and they pace the service appropriately to not feel rushed and to enjoy a good meal with friends and family. We don't speak a lot of spanish, but the staff was great in working with us and ensuring we were able to order what we wanted. One of the owners was around during our couple nights at at the restaurant and he was extremely friendly and ensured service was excellent. He was also a great source of information about the area and made the evenings very enjoyable.
