Loved that this was walkable to the beach. No chairs or furniture available at beach unless you provide your own, however it was still a great place to walk and swim. Pools at this hotel were great and the restaurant had good food and a great vibe.

Personal impressions
Rooms were good and clean. Restaurant was also good with good menu choices good value for money. Just outside the hotel: Messy and dirty surroundings so first impression not so good but perhaps this is not RIPJACK Inn’s fault.

A Short Stay at a Laid Back Inn
We came to Playa Grande to visit friends there and they recommended Rip Jack Inn. We found the Rip Jack to be a perfect place for us. It has a laid back surfer vibe and is only 75 yards from the beach. The restaurant was great - breakfast, lunch and dinner were delicious and service was friendly and professional. Office staff were helpful and courteous as well. We would stay here again. Recommended.

Excelente lugar, especial si vas con tu mascota!
Muy buena atención y super cerca de la playa. Yo fuí con mi perrita y estuvo súper bien. El restaurante es muy rico también. El hotel está en una ubicación media y cómoda, a 20 min de flamingo y de tamarindo, así que es ideal para moverse por conchal, tamarindo, flamingo y otras playas vírgenes de la zona.
