Nice place to go for a quiet vacation.

Rip Jack was a nice, cleanly place to stay while in Playa Grande. It caters to the surfer and naturalist community, while creating a family friendly atmosphere. Surrounded by nature, and only 100 yards or so from the beach, you will find plenty of tranquil spaces to be alone. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We looked forward to seeing Eric (restaurant waiter) each day for Happy Hour. The one down side (and reason for the 3.5 rating) is that our room was under the restaurant. Around 9:30-10:00 each night, we got to hear the clatter and banging of pots, pans, dishes, as well as the constant swoosh sound from a water hose as they cleaned the kitchen. I have a feeling if we had been in a different room, the overall rating would have been higher. People also would sit at the table outside our at night, which really didn't disturb us, except that they would leave a mess that was there the next morning. I'm not sure what could be done to reduce the sound issue. Perhaps an acoustic ceiling for that room would help some. Still, we would go back (and ask for a different room.)
