After visiting Tamarindo I very much appreciated the location of Rip Jack Inn. It's very quiet and you practically have the beach to yourself. The rooms are very clean and the a/c a nice respite from a day on the beach. But what really makes Rip Jack spectacular is it's amazing staff that seems more like a family than merely co-workers. Dave, Annie, Greg, Alisa, Oliver, Shirley, Marlon, Lydia etc... were all so nice and accomodating. Brett, the extraordinary chef, had bbq ribs on the menu one night. The ribs are so popular the staff asks that he set aside a rack for them to take home. Brett was sweet enough to take pity on me after the ribs ran out and served me the staff's portion - sorry guys! The food was always amazing: veggie scramble for breakfast, fried calamari for lunch, and the appetizer of garlic shrimp with hummus.
