Great place for relaxing and taking it easy. The beach is not super crowded, and the food is absolutely delicious. Jet skiing, parasailing, kayaking, wind surfing are all just one beach/boat ride over.

Clean, quiet hotel on the beach 15 minutes from the airport. Nice beach -- the beds are great (fine condition when we were there). Not an all-inclusive. Food was decent. Good value-- would definitely stay there again. It is not a 5 star or luxury hotel, but the people are super nice and the price is excellent.

An affordable beachfront resort. No beach views from rooms but a short walk to the beach. Rooms are a little dated and the hot water requires a slight wait, but good value for the money. Nice people and the staff speaks good english.

I've traveled to many resorts and hotels in the Dominican Republic and have done my share of all-inclusives. Blue JackTar is NOT an all inclusive and at first I was worried. Where would I eat? Wouldn't it be easier to have all of my meals provided? Well, I cannot tell you how happy I am to have decided to stay...

I came to those resort to eat on the beach. The beds were a nice touch. I highly recommend getting a coconut and have to restaurant put a piña colada in it. Food was good and wait staff was attentive.

As many other reviewer mention, this place has no one else around. I spent the day at the pool by myself and I was in heaven. I wasn't a huge fan of the breakfast served along with the buffet, but everything else including the staff were excellent.

Reviewed 10 January 2017

Overview: A great romantic getaway for those okay with tropical critters and a language barrier. The Good: This was an all-around amazing stay. The Blue Jacktar is a resort, but the price per night is only that of an upper-mid-range American hotel. The chaises (literally, beds) on the beach made for a splendidly romantic touch, and watching the sun rise...

Quaint, small resort located on the northeastern beaches of the Dominican Republic. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are comfortable and clean, easy access to a few restaurants, and the service is excellent. Certainly wished our trip could have been longer as this is certainly a place where you can go and simply relax.

Maybe it's because it wasn't busy, but the resort wasn't all the website made it out to be.The staff was friendly and helpful. Room was well maintained, clean and very large.
