I spent two nights at Rip Jack and had a great experience. The mornings and evenings were very quiet and peaceful and the restaurant provided the right amount of action at the exact right times (happy hour/dinner). The food was excellent and the best part it that it is walking distance to the surf, so I was able to check... More

I stayed at Rip Jack Inn while attending a yoga retreat. Everyone is friendly & very helpful. Accommodations are very clean & nice. Our air conditioner had a little difficulty staying up with the heat - but other rooms were quite cool. The type room I stayed in is not large enough for 3 adults & I wish someone had... More

I recently spent 8 days at this location and had a wonderful experience! RipJack gave an authentic experience for those of us who wanted to enjoy the simple pleasures in life: beach, surf, yoga, wildlife exploration...etc. We had a small group there for a yoga retreat and the studio space was perfect for up to 20 people. There are 2... More

Pros: Steps to the beach Really good food in the restaurant, plus another good one next door Nice rooms Very friendly and helpful staff Two pools Good happy hour drink deals Awesome yoga studio Cons: All rooms have at least two beds, so if you're a couple it's a little pricier than necessary.

I stayed at the Ripjack inn for a yoga retreat and loved everything about it. The location is perfect, less than an minute away from the beach. My room was spacious and clean, located close to the pool and the reception. The staff is very friendly and can help with any activities that you might want to do and one... More

I spent almost a month here for my yoga teacher training and yet when I was leaving with my luggage, I felt quite sad to leave this wonderful hotel. It felt like home to me and I enjoyed the excellent hospitality, as well as the quiet secluded beach just steps from the hotel. The food at the restaurant is wonderful... More

I don't think you will find more caring staff than at the RipJack Inn. You will be well taken care of by the RipJack family! The property makes for the perfect getaway: clean, safe, excellent food and food service, prime beach location, yoga and that perfect laid back feel that can only be described as pura vida!

The staff are warm, hospitable, and always smiling! The restaurant menu is versatile and delicious (get Andy's flourless chocolate cake!). It only took one visit to have already declared The RipJack my home away from home, here in Playa Grande.

Annie and Lulie are amazing, as is the entire staff at Rip Jack. The rooms are clean and comfy. Right on beach at main surf break, and a short walk for more beginner waves. Food is super healthy and delicious thanks to chef Andy and the others in the kitchen. Yoga studio is beautiful and quite peaceful and Annie is... More
