Blue JackTar, Puerto Plata
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 Only snall things are WiFi can't be used by more than one person in the room, gym is out of date with almost no AC, and you have to walk about 10 mins to get picked up by an Uber.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.

Blue Jack Tar stay ruined!
The restaurants at this hotel charge a tip but when you pay the servers tell you that the tip (included in the bill) will not be given to them for a month. They pressure you to tip at least the same amount again (hopefully in cash). This created a daily problem (very uncomfortable situation). This (minimun twice a day situation) totally ruined my stay at Blue Jack Tar. There is no justification for an existing problem between hotel and staff to be turned into a client’s problem. It is a real shame because the service in the rest of the hotel was quite good. Rooms very clean and the hotel well located.
