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...

I stayed there for a week in June. I loved it! Not only the hotel and the place is great but at that time of the year there isn't many tourists and I almost had the whole place and beach for myself. The staff is reaaally nice and helpful. My room was a great size and had a nice patio...

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. The restaurant (the only restaurant) was nice with good food. The resort is right near the beach and had a nice large area for hanging at the beach. The...

I went to the Green Jack Tar Restaurant during a quick pop up thunderstorm very common in December. The staff were very accomodating and its location is on a lovely stretch of beach. I was given shelter and the menu LOL which is printed in a cool surfboard shape, nice touch. The menu has a lot of selection all tasty.
