Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
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.
