Fabulous 8.8 From 141 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Great short break from NYC
This was our second visit here. If you don't like all inclusives or party resorts with their bad food and pool games, this is a great place to stay for a short break. PROS: The hotel rooms are basic but very nice and clean. The food is very fresh and good both on the beach and in the restaurant. The drinks at the beach bar are awesome, especially the rum punch made with fresh juice. The beach is gorgeous and the beach beds are fantastic. Perfect place to read a book and just do nothing. CONS: English is very limited among the staff. You'll be fine with garden variety stuff but if you have a more complex issue it might take you a little patience and some creativity to resolve it. Only one other restaurant (French Canadian of all things) not affiliated with the hotel just down the beach and a small tourist market next door, but nothing else useful to walk to. For any needs (ATM, pharmacy, etc) plan on needing a taxi. The market next door (you can get soda/snacks/beer/rum or tourist trinkets) is fine to take dollars even though they don't take credit cards. If you're considering a long stay, with all that quiet beware of rainy days as there really isn't a place to hang out and the rooms are quite small. Some advertised facilities are never open (swim up bar is clearly not used ever - even at peak holidays), and service can be slow/disinterested at times. Tipping well only helps a little. Overall this place is a great value and we'll be back.

The hotel is decent and the campus is well-maintained and clean. Staff is friendly and goes out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable. I will gladly stay again at this place, without any reservation, whatsoever.

Very Disappointing
Blue Jack Tar is an older facility. The rooms are 2 stars and the restaurant is just terrible. I would never stay there again.

Luxury in the DR
The room just seemed so luxurious, the grounds were terrific with a great pool to hang out with friends, and the beach was a short walk away. The food at the restaurants was very good, and the included breakfast was one of the best spreads I've ever seen.

Would stay again.
We enjoyed our accommodations here and would stay again. The staff are friendly and attentive. The location is excellent, quiet, feeling uncrowded with a nice stretch of beach while not being too far from the airport nor town central. It's an easy taxi ride in either direction. The main restaurant is excellent, offering an impressive variety of options. The complimentary breakfast is awesome as well.

Great place
Amazing place to stay. Friendly and helpful staff. Good food. Right on the beach with a ton of chairs and a restaurant/bar. Only snall things are WiFi can't be used by more than one person in the room, gym is out of date with almost no AC, and you have to walk about 10 mins to get picked up by an Uber.

Great place with a few issues
Amazing place to stay for the price. Great food. Helpful and friendly staff. Right next to the beach with plenty of chairs and cabanas. However, Wifi is very spotty and only one person in a room can be on it at once. Gym is not updated at all. Also, Uber is almost impossible to get and they can't come past the entrance gate.
