Allegro P.P?


Hi all, I know that the hotel that was formerly the Holiday Village, then became an Allegro…I was in the process of searching for a spot for our trip in Dec and from what I heard this location was great??? Only Problem is that I can not find it anywhere?? Is it now running under another name??



To the best of my knowledge, the Allegro Puerto Plata property has new owners, is being ‘renovated’ and will someday re-open under a new name. My spies on the ground are telling me that there are only about four properties currently open in the Playa Dorada complex. I can get price quotes on more than that, which leads me to believe that the possibility exists that you’ll book a property and end up being relocated to an ‘equivalent or better’ one. :o


I just heard today that the property is re-opening on Nov 1 as the Blue Jack Tar. Apparently it will be operating on the American Plan and not on the All-Inclusive plan. I got a website address and phone number, but the website didn’t work for me. More details to follow as I find out more.


Blue Jack Tar??? This was orginally Jack Tar back in the day.


You bet. See http://www.zleepinghotels.com/playa-dorada-puerto-plata/hotels/blue-jack-tar-(ex-occidental-allegro-puerto-plata)
They’ve barely caught up to the name change and the description is for the old Allegro …


And a lot of the buildings were being bulldozed when I was there in October so I hope they rebuild before anyone gets there!!


Thanks for all your help…ended up booking the Iberostar. Arrive Dec 1, cant wait!!
