About Blue JackTar, Puerto Plata

Puerto Plata hotel, with wave pool

Puerto Plata beachfront
Blue JackTar delights guests with a beautiful beachfront locale. The hotel is 9 km from the Gregorio Luperón Airport, and enjoys views of the Isabel de Torres Mountains.

Keep your kids smiling
You won't feel guilty spending an evening at the Spice disco when your kids are busy having a blast in the Kids Club. The club is for ages 3-10 and features a swimming pool and plenty of games to keep them occupied and smiling for hours.

Wave pool, water slides
Adults and children appreciate the 3 pools and water slides. The onsite Green Jack restaurant offers a variety of cuisines to please even the pickiest of palates, while Jack's Kite & Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A main buffet features fun nightly themes, and treats await you at the hotel snack bars.

Balconies with a view
After a little Caribbean sunbathing, you can unwind as you watch your cable TV. All rooms are outfitted with private balconies, some with golf or garden views. Open up the windows for an ocean breeze while you sleep.

Blue JackTar, Puerto Plata
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.
