Great food (hummus wrap is huge and fantastic), great service and Jack the puppy is darling. #6star The area is beautiful and walking distance to the beach! Don’t think twice, est and stay here you’ll love it!
I have stayed at the Rip Jack 5 years ago, and was happy to see the area hasn't changed too much in five years. I LOVE this hotel! With the surf and restaurant/bar on site, this is just hard-to-beat. Also, security 24 hours.
Great spot, clean, super friendly, very safe. Restaurant on the premise is excellent or walking distance to a few others. Not really a town there and it's just 2nd home owner Gringos. Very mellow. The surfing is right there. We are not that advanced surfers, so just a 5-10 min walk down the beach and it was easier waves. My only issue was you need to use the A/C as there was no fan in the room.
If you’re on the fence at all about coming here, just do it. The lodging is comfortable, the grounds are super clean, the staff is incredible, the food is AMAZING, the owners are really wonderful people and the beach is jaw-dropping. I’ve been here 5 times and led several yoga retreats (yoga teachers, this place is it, stop looking anywhere else, they make everything so easy for you!). I dream about coming back here, there’s so many local restaurants and breweries to walk to, you can rent a bike or car and go to Tamarindo (or anywhere!), it’s just the perfect place. Can’t wait to go back in November!!
This is my husband I third time staying at the Rip Jack Inn and first time bringing our one year old daughter. I love this hotel. It's the perfect location, clean, staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are also very spacious and they had pack n play available for our daughter to sleep! I highly recommend and hope to return soon.
We enjoyed a ten-day vacation in beautiful Playa Grande based at Rip Jack. Office, house-keeping, landscape, security and restaurant staff were warm, friendly and professional. Special kudos to Giovanni and Sonia in the restaurant. Our room was clean, cozy and well-appointed with excellent air conditioning. We looked out at lovely, colorful, well-kept landscaping and overhead trees. Loved the short walk to the beach. Scored good surf, wonderful beach and jungle hikes and made new friends. Folks here are honest, genuine and accommodating. Fair room rate. Good value. Wished recycling was more in evidence.
Our stay was fantastic. The hotel staff is extremely kind and helpful. The rooftop restaurant food and drinks were delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can't go wrong with the banana pancakes or any of the batidos. Location is phenomenal right across the street from Playa Grande. We would definitely stay again...and hope to. Pura vida!
Can't go wrong here . Beach to the pool , pool to the beach. They can set up your surf lessons/ board rental , any other excursions. They offer yoga classes. Staff are very friendly. Restaurant is excellent .
We stayed here with our two kids and all loved it. The hotel is well designed, very quiet and tropical, and across the road from the beach and surf break. The pool area is really nice as is the yoga studio and upstairs restaurant.
Best dinner, best service, go with friends and family for great food and pleasant environment. Ask for Joshua as your waiter! I ordered the steak and it was cooked perfectly! I will be back again next time I visit Costa Rica.
