My family and I have been going to the RipJack for years. We always think it is the perfect hotel. Every time we go back, the owners have upgraded some aspect of the hotel. Even though we think it's perfect, they are always improving! The staff is excellent. Super friendly and will do just about anything to make your stay... More

Great small hotel with clean rooms with cozy hammocks throughout the grounds. Only thing is the restaurant is slightly over priced and the food is just ok. The owner Annie makes your stay easy, also the ladies at the front are very helpful.

Awesome every time! Dave and Annie and entire Ripjack crew are a special group. Love you guys! The sunsets on the beach out front of the hotel are honestly the best I've ever seen....and the surfing is top notch. Two pools now!! Very cool.

Relaxed atmosphere with several hamocs in the beautiful garden, two small pools and very nice staff. Good restaurant, however a bit pricey when taxes and service fees are added. Nice room with separate terrace. A short walk to the fabulous Playa Grande beach, with excellent surfing and unforgettable sunsets.

Just stayed one night on our way south on the peninsula. Great surfers ambience and great location just an eye blink from the Beach. Had all our meals in Playa Grande in their house restaurant. High standard on the rooms, ok cleanliness and good service.

We have been coming to the Rip Jack over the years since 2006 but this time was different, this time we were getting married and coming with friends and family to stay a week at the Rip Jack Inn. Over a year in planning everything went perfect, better than we ever thought possible, Annie from the Rip Jack went above... More

We were there the first day of November when the inn re-opened. The circuit breakers (hidden behind pictures on the wall) were malfunctioning so AC couldn't be used. Sliding glass room doors with unlined curtains pulled over them seemed unsatisfactory at first, but we adjusted. The lights in the stairwell were out so had to move rooms. The photos in... More

I got two rooms at Expedia, we just decided to go to Playa Grande and I found this hotel, rooms where modest and clean, the staff cordial, rates were excellent, and breakfast was amazing. Next time I go to Costa Rica will be a must.

My Wife and I visited the Rip Jack on our honeymoon! After spending 7 days in a fast paced mega resort this was just what was needed! The staff and rooms were amazing! This place is slow paced and just what is needed to slow one's life down and relax! The beach is across the street ( 500ft) and can... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your honeymoon! September can be a tricky time to visit with so much closed for the season but we always try to personalize the experience and we are so happy there wasn't a ton of rain! See you next time! More
