“Good times Good people Good place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Occidental Allegro Jack Tar was the name when we stayed rhere. Not the fanciest place but one of better ones for a good time and nice people. Would definety go there again but no travel company has any deals out of Fl so going to set my own trip up. Go there and have a good with no worries.

Honeymooned here a while back under the old name of Occidental Allegro Jack Tar. The hotel was massive and we were greeted nicely and taken in a buggy to our room which was like a seperate hut type room. It was a bit dark in there but the room and shower were comfortable enough. The hotel restaurants were great, the breakfast was lovely fresh papaya milkshakes and lots of nice food. The hotel had different restaurants and you could make reservations in the other 2/3 like the one on the beach. That was a lovely experience. Pools were nice, snack bars and all inclusive drinks were great. Took a local bus into the town one day, the souvenirs were extremely expensive, and it was the first time I had come across anything that expensive when it was made in china (im a savvy traveller so its not as though they were ripping me off) but perhaps it costs more to import. Anyway walked around the town was nice. Booked 3 lovely excursions including waterfalls trip, an island trip and a helicopter ride. Was fantastic, booked that from near a local shopping centre close to the hotel which was walkable but you could get a carriage there. Tip - Take lots of mosquito repellant and soothing cream as we were bitten quite badly especially on our legs, that was horrible.

Thanks for writing but regret to inform you that is not all inclusive. We thank you for having taken us into account . Blue Jacktar is now a property of bed & breakfast, with Green Jack Restaurant, where you can enjoy exquisite fusion cuisine Dominican, and also international flavors plus Blue Jack Beach Bar & Snacks. Of course with the same quality human that characterizes us. I invite you to experience a new concept in Playa Dorada.

We didn't stay at blue Jack, but rented a house in a nearby residential area. We found Blue Jack when looking for a beach to go to. It is fantastic. We found their beach, their bar and their restaurant to be the best. They have a chocolate brownie ice cream sundae that we became addicted to. The best thing was their personal accommodating personnel. My husband is handicapped, but on a few days we brought him to the beach. On the first day, the beach platform had a slight step to get up to it. Difficult for the handicapped. Three days later when we went back, they were staining a small ramp that was built. They said that they realized that they needed to make it more handicapped accessible when it was difficult for my husband. I thought that was amazing. Thank you Blue Jack and your wonderful staff.

The food in the Green Jack restaurant is fantastic! I strongly recommend a visit and suggest you try the french fries as they are very special! I also suggest you order a Lavazza coffee here as it's the best cappuccino you will find in town! You don't have to be a guest here either, if you're staying near by it is definitely worth having lunch or dinner here.

A great place!
My family and I go to BJT every weekend. We had a great time in the beach area. My kid loves it, and has fun in the playground.
The restaurant is great and has an extraordinary staff.
Some nights you may be able to find a lounge ambiance with live music.
Highly recommended!
