Non existent customer service. Horribly substandard food at the "restaurants ". Activities not available or not as advertised. Staff worse than useless. A poor excuse for luxury. Stay away! I'm serious.

We spent 5 nights here and absolutely LOVED it! The villas are amazing and luxurious. We got one that was on the end, next to the jungle, so we spent each night sipping wine on the balcony and listening to the jungle sounds. It's a bit of a hike to the beach, but that was rather fun, too. We packed... More

Was only there a couple of days and was checking it out for future vacations. Was blown away with how beautiful the resort is--beaches, jungle, views etc. If you are looking for natural beauty in a beach vacation this is the spot. (everything else was great too, try the snapper at Punta Lava)

We stayed in the Villas at Red Frog Beach with our family of 7 (ages 10-16). It was beautifully situated with a beach view and tucked up next to the jungle. My favorite part of the house were the multiple covered balconies that allowed us to enjoy nature in any weather. We watched the many species of birds frolicking right... More

We rented villa 38 which advertises one of the best views on the island and we were not disappointed. This villa has a hugh patio that wraps around the villa. The owners of the villa were so helpful with everything from the booking to suggestions etc. and they always responded within hours of our emails. The restaurants had good food... More

We rented a 3 bed/2 bath villa for my 2 children, MIL and my husband and I for two weeks in mid-April. It was beautifully designed and extremely comfortable. The views are lovely from the villa overlooking the ocean. The rainforest around the property is exceptionally fun and interesting with a huge diversity of wildlife, though you need not venture...

This place is a real gem. The villa was beautiful, spacious, with exquisite views. There was lots to do and lots of beautiful places to do nothing. Friendly, knowledgeable staff were more interested in helping us find the experience we were looking for than selling some high-margin, off-the-shelf package. Prices for activities were reasonable and all were top notch. We... More

Something for everyone. Hiking on well maintained jungle paths to Polo beach for a swim in the clear blue waters. Adventuring on a hike to the Coffee shop on Bastimento's.

We have stayed here many times. We always get villa 56. It comes with a golf cart and beautiful pool. Three bedrooms three baths. Couldn't ask for anything else. Very clean, and I'm very picky. Full size washer and dryer. Don't forget, if you are going for the first time, get your groceries in Bocas. They have a small little... More
