My husband and I stayed at the RipJack for the first time, Nov 2008. We fell in love. The staff was helpful, curious, friendly and made us feel at home. The atmosphere was super chill, beach paradise. It was so relaxing and enjoyable that we swore we would, one day, return. Shortly after our departure from Costa Rica, we decided to marry. We couldn't think of a better location for a chill, beach wedding than Playa Grande. We contacted the RipJack immediately and began to work with Annie and Dave. They were amazing and they put me in contact with the wedding planner, Gregory. He was able to put exactly what we had envisioned together, without ever having clear idea ourselves. Annie & Dave were always available and answered all of our questions prior to our arrival. They helped us arrange tours and a spa day for our guests, they basically took care of EVERYTHING for us. My idea of a perfect vacation and wedding is one where you can relax and let someone else worry about the details. The RipJack (and Gregory) were able to fulfill that wish. We had a very small wedding, especially since my side of the family didn't make it due to weather. Annie, Dave and Gregory worked really hard to make it that much more special for us. They arranged a private, tikki torch lit dinner by the pool with personalized menus, music and then dropped by with their daughter, to say hello and congrats. We thought that was really a nice touch. The RipJack and surroundings have such and chill, family vibe. I would highly recommend staying there with family or as a romantic getaway. Its BEAUTIFUL. Oh, the outdoor, poolside yoga is totally worth the money. It was a small price to pay for relaxation in paradise.
