My favorite for many years and getting better!! Super clean and beds are brand new. Hotel is in front of the beach and one of the best surf spots in Grande. The food is the best in the area be sure to go for brunch and get the Benedicts. Ask for the owners Annie, Luli and Dave who are always around !!!

We stayed at the Rip Jack Inn and had several meals in the restaurant. They offer healthy options and the food was delicious. Service was great and I felt everything was clean — the pool, room and restaurant. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it! It was a bonus that they offer yoga classes on site, coffee in the mornings and a water refill station. Also, it’s a very short walk to the beach and is within walking distance to other restaurants in town.

I honestly can't say enough about how great my stay was here! The location is amazing; we could literally skip to the beach (about a 2 minute walk) and Tamarindo was a short drive away. The staff was so kind and helpful, and they made sure our rooms and the grounds were clean! I loved the intimate setting, and that you have access to a yoga studio, 2 pools, and an amazing restaurant. If you want a lovely, chill, yet fun stay in Playa Grande, then this is the place for you. I'll definitely be back!

Such a gem! Loved this place! Came for a yoga retreat and they took care of everything. I was scared bc the food was included and I have food allergy, but they were more than accommodating and I felt totally safe! They planed our excursion and they were light fun experiences!
