It is a bit rough around the edges but has a casual charm that we really enjoyed. Spent 4 nights here at beginning of March - loved the food in their restaurant and the bar features a half price happy hour each day. What's not to love! Location is ideal across the street from the beach and the staff were... More

To put the star rating in perspective, there is only one five star hotel in the entire area; the rest are family run tiny properties. This was a delightful boutique hotel just steps away from the Pacific on a gorgeous unspoiled beach. The owners and staff were like family; truly interested in seeing that your stay was memorable. We had... More

Stayed 8 nights there and loved the place. Rooms were clean and quiet. The staff were super friendly and helped with any questions and great service. The beach is clean and goes on for miles, the sunsets were spectacular. Would recommend this place if you want a quiet get away for some great R&R.

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel last minute because of the good reviews. It was our first time in Costa Rica so we learned a lot when we got here. Playa Grande is mostly an untouched beach. There isn't much in the town but a couple surf shops. The beach was almost secluded like, with very little people. We... More

A very casual, clean, laid back and unsophisticated hotel. This is most definitely not a place to obtain needed information on tours, options etc. Example: I told the receptionist that I was driving to Tamarindo Beach. She offered to print the directions, however later I was told by a hotel guest that a taxi boat was available. I obtained this... More

Rip jack is not for someone looking for fancy frills. But if you want great food, great service, friendly people and a perfect beach, you found your place at rip jack. I left there to go to the Westin and missed it the entire time. Great place for a laid back beach lounging hammock swinging restful vacation

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Rip Jack last week and wanted to comment on how amazing it was! The first night we were not even staying there but could not get in touch with the other people we were traveling with to find out where they were. The employees at the restaurant stayed after their closing hours and... More

I'm a business owner, 37... STRESS is part of my daily life.. .and I needed... More

We stayed here for four days. Loved the cute pools, and the convenience of a restaurant upstairs. Our room was under the restaurant and could get a bit noisy in the evenings but not a major issue. The restaurant is a bit pricey but there are not a lot of options in close proximity, except the restaurant next door. Our... More

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
