Nothing special

Posted Dec 27, 2014
There was construction of a large building close by at the time, so it was noise early in the morning. I received someone else's laundry and didn't realize until after I left the resort. Had to return it on my way back thru. Breakfast was excellent. Pool was unkept and the resort wasn't busy at all. Room was very clean.

relaxing hotel with a nice beach

Posted Dec 10, 2014
Pros: Very relaxing no vendors on the beach
Cons: They need more rooms and guest so they can have nightly entrainment like other resorts.
Location: Disco, plaza over priced cab rides nice beach 100 meters from cottage, casino.
The hotel is utterly boring but very relaxing. I felt like a king the moment I was checked in. I had the European plan that offers a free breakfast. The breakfast was the best i had in years. I never eat pancakes at home but I ate their's. They have this French toast sandwich with ham and cheese that was awesome. I only ate two meals a day there. The dinner meals was very good and reasonable. I would like to know the spices on the spaghetti. The room had a high ceiling that made it feel roomier. There was plenty of hot water. The pool and the beach seemed private no vender's to harass you. If you book a trip stay away from the plaza, especially the city tour, all they take you to is shops that they way over charge you. They also get insulted when you don't what to buy there junk. Book tours through the hotel they might be a little more but they have to provide the service or they won't be used again. The entertainment is a short walking distance from the hotel. The casino opens after 5 but doesn't get going until after 10. The rooms are 4 room cottages which i liked and are very quiet. Be careful when you walk out of the resort the locals will try and scam you. The carriage rider wanted to take me to the plaza which was a 10 min walk.

Confort e tranquillità

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Piscina , posizione e tranquillità,
Cons: Lato negativo: la presenza di un condominio in costruzione di 5 piani, in teoria facente parte del complesso e da finire , ma sembra più in abbandono
Location: Sulla spiaggia. In mezz'ora di auto si raggiungono Cabarete e le cascate di Damagua, in meno tempo Sousa.
Soggiorno di una settimana, a fine agosto con famiglia. All'interno dell'area della costa dorata, in adiacenza a campo da golf e casinò. Complesso molto tranquillo in settimana, si anima nel week-end. servizi ottimi, camera spaziosa e pulita, piscina molto piacevile, personale disponibile. Accesso diretto alla spiaggia con letti e lettini. In mezz'ora di auto si raggiungono Cabarete e le cascate di Damagua, in meno tempo Sousa.

Relax in beauty

Posted Aug 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
Our family visited Puerta Plata/Playa Dorado and stayed at the Blue Jack Tar at the recommendation of a friend. Our two rooms were clean and beautiful and the amenities were perfect (great air conditioning, towels for the beach and the pool, free water in the room refrigerator, blow dryer, nice patio overlooking the golf course). We enjoyed the beach and the four-poster beds--so nice not to have to lay down on the sand! The pool and spa were wonderful though we wish they had been open later into the evening (the posted closing hour was 7:00 PM). We ate twice at the Green Jack Tar restaurant and the food was good and the prices were reasonable. The complimentary breakfast was very good (small buffet along with a menu where you could order breakfast croissants, crepes, and eggs). We would highly recommend this resort to others.

Very clean and quiet

Posted Aug 18, 2014
The rooms are clean, elegant and comfortable. The location is quiet. The staff is very sweet and helpful. The restaurant is ok with a nice ambience. Prices are fair. We would go back if we really wanted to relax for a few days. Wifi excellent and free.

Great place

Overall great. Gym was very dated and lacking. Most machines didn't work which was disappointing given how they promote it.

Great Vacation Spot for Relaxation!

Posted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: Everything was exactly as advertised.
Cons: I cannot think of anything that could be improved.
The Blue JackTar is the fourth resort I have visited in Porta Plata. The other three were rough. Blue JackTar was as smooth as their wonderful pina coladas. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, the beach was beautiful, and the customer service was outstanding. The menu and the food were out of this world. It was a calm, relaxing environment.
