It felt like it was off the beaten path without being far away. Perfectly close to the beach with a magical walk through a small forest. Not crowded which gave extra touch of feeling like your with friends. Proof of uniqueness, same guests have been coming here consistently for 10 years. If you're looking for a get away that isn't overcrowded, I highly recommend this. Food, drinks, team were all great!

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.

8/10 Very good

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.
