RipJack Inn, Playa Grande
Perfect for recharging.
Perfect retreat on the beach for a couple of days. Great surf 100 yards from the hotel. it would be great if the hotel would add a couple of bicycles for guests use. Really enjoyed the hotel.

Good for surfers and the family!
RipJack is a surfter's hotel. No question. That said, we are no longer 20 something's on a grungy surf trip, we are now a family of 4 with a toddler and a 6 year old, and our standards for hotels have raised. RipJack is okay by me! Surfer's hotel, yes. Clean enough for my toddler...yes! Great pool for my 6 year old...yes! Safe for our family...yes! Good food in the restaurant..yes! Wifi...good enough. The beach...which is gorgeous, is just a 2 minute walk away. This is not a plush, all inclusive luxury resort, it's a get your feet sandy, eat breakfast barefoot, and appreciate Costa Rica for how amazing it is surfer's hotel. Take it all in!! I would definitely stay there again.

Very Good8.0
Amazing beach
Beach is a National Park, closes at 6pm. Pristine sand is a short easy walk from hotel. 2 lovely swimming pools. Get the deluxe room for a more quiet atmosphere . Budget rooms are under the Hotel Restraunt which is very good.

Really nice place!

Beautiful location, laid back atmosphere
We stayed at RipJack for two nights in December 2016 and loved it! The highlights were its proximity to a beautiful and uncrowded beach (Playa Grande) and the restaurant. The food at the restaurant was great, and we found Andy to be especially helpful and fun to talk with. The atmosphere at the property is very laid back but also efficient and service-oriented. The downsides were that we stayed in a basic room below the restaurant, which could be noisy, and that the wifi access from our room was very bad. However, wifi was better on other parts of the property. We would absolutely stay here again! It was a perfect getaway and a great value!
