RipJack Inn is must! It's quaint and authentic charm make you feel like you are home right away. Located just steps from the beach, it is a dream come. The owners and staff are so kind and genuine, doing everything with such care and love. The rooms are cozy & comfortable, the pools are beautiful, and the food is delicious.... More

I recently visited Costa Rica again and had an amazing experience, and the RipJack Inn was a big reason why. It was the first time I traveled solo in a while, and the first time I planned nothing beforehand beyond surfing, eating, and resting a lot for 10 days. So it was even more important that where I stayed was... More

All the other 5-star reviews pretty much sum it up for us as well. Our 5 night stay at the Rip Jack Inn was just about perfect. The rooms are great, staff couldn't be more friendly and accomodating and the property is situated in a prime spot. Get to know the locals, ask questions and enjoy a bit of paradise.... More

We stayed at the Rip Jack for a couple of weeks and had a wonderful time. The girls at reception were super helpful and the service and food at the restaurant were great. The beach is litterally in front- just a short walk through the tres-, and the break point is right there! We travelled to some othere areas in... More

My sisters and I just returned from a getaway to Costa Rica at he RipJack Inn, and we all loved it. We went in August, which is technically rainy season, so the costs were lower, but it rained ONCE and was sunny the rest of the week. Here's my breakdown of our stay. The room: We stayed in a deluxe... More

We are so glad you had such a great experience visiting us in Playa Grande. It is guests like you that make what we do worth it. It seems you have uncovered the secret of "green season" is that it doesn't rain an overwhelming amount but just enough to cool it off and make everything lush and green! We hope... More

Staying at RipJack Inn is like staying at home, only BETTER! The staff at RipJack made us feel like we were so much more than WELCOME, that we were family. Every meal or beverage in the restaurant was not only delicious but also clearly made with love and served with a genuine smile. The menus have a wonderful variety of... More

I was at the RipJack Inn for a yoga teacher training in July. We were there for 3.5 weeks and everything was fabulous the ENTIRE time! The rooms are so clean, the good is excellent, the grounds are a tropical paradise and the 2 pools are beautiful and so relaxing to sit by! And let's not forget the world famous... More

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon. This place is amazing. If you like good kind people, fresh/ high qaulity food and one amazing beach this is the spot. You can surf here almost everyday the waves are killer. The resturant manager is a gem and the rest of the staff is no less. The people running this resort... More

I booked this hotel based on the great reviews, beach and pictures. I am a huge Tripadvisor researcher and reviewer and have never been disappointed before! This place was not at all what I was expecting! Ripack is in the middle of nowhere, the taxi driver couldnt even find it. The beach is deserted and you cannot see it from... More

Wow what an interesting review for someone who was at the property for less than an hour. Upon arrival you discovered that you were in Playa Grande not in Playa Tamarindo so I can understand your disappointment in not having a big town or lots of night life. Most people who choose Playa Grande do so for it's quiet beach... More

What can I say other than we loved it!! Nice quiet location and great food. Ms Nubia was so helpful with setting up our rental car and answering questions before we even got there. Nice clean rooms and two pools to chose from. Very convenient to the beach, just across from the inn. My husband was able to surf without... More
