My husband and I spent new years even in this hotel and though the room was very nice, we had experience a terrible bad small from the toilet. Was really a pitty. The water from the swimming pool was dirty and the breakfast was very expensive. The good things of the hotel: Perfect location, just a few meters from the... More

Everything was geared towards the tourist. The room was moderately clean, sand on the floor when we arrived. Beautifully landscaped with non native plants. Couldnt see the sun rise or set from anywhere on the property. Although the entire area is under water conservation due to a drought, when the water was on the bathtub faucet leaked wasting precious water.

Stayed here with 3 other active, athletic, lively women in our early 30s for a girls trip, and we loved every minute! Pros: - Not a massive, commercial resort. Had authentic local feel, and personalized service - Attractive rooms that had glassware, a coffee maker, toaster oven and silverware. - Great yoga 1.5 hr yoga classes, once daily. - Friendly...

I cannot say enough great things about RIpJack. I stayed there for a week with a surfing group and everyone at the RipJack was extremely friendly and accommodating. The entire grounds was kept clean and the pathways were accessible despite mild construction. The staff treated us like family while we were there and never once did we feel like tourists.... More

I have been fortunate to stay at the RipJack for the last three years for weeks at a time in January. It is the best hotel experience I have EVER had and I do a lot of traveling. The entire staff, from the management to the groundskeepers and maids, all treat you as if you are family. Their customer service... More

This Hotel needs to get its "Act Together". We could not flush the toilets at some times (due to lack of water), and they handed us water jugs to shower with, on our last day. While the location was close to the beach, the surf was very rough, and the beach was closed at sunset. When we complained the manager... More

We have visited Playa Grande many times. We didn't know that just minutes from the beach was a great find. Wonderful stay, great food and staff. The beds were great, the rooms were really clean. The two pools and the grounds were great. I have always wanted to try Yoga and got my chance. We enjoyed the wonderful beach. We... More

Beautiful accommodations...directly across the street from one of the most beautiful surfing beaches in Costa Rica. The hotel restaurant serves the best food and in the area....with live music on the weekends. The yoga classes are very good and varied. The property boast two beautifully maintained swimming pools and the resort employees are some of the sweetest and hard working... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable though nothing special. The location only a 3 minute walk to the beach or to park headquarters is excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a severe drought in Playa Grande and water is not available for several hours each afternoon and is rationed at night.

The rooms were nothing special but they had natural bath products and of course it was clean! The property itself is what makes this hotel special with a very laid back atmosphere! They teach yoga in their yoga studio and the hotel has a 2 minute trail leading to the beach, which is completely untouched by tourism! The best part... More
