We were 3 couples staying at the villas at Red Frog Beach. Our friends wanted the only beach front villa (#73) but was described as a 2 bedroom villa so we had to rent an extra villa. When we got to the resort we found both villas were 3 bedroom and did not need the extra villa. We had already... More

Red Frog Beach Resort is very nice! The room, a king suite, is clean with fresh towels, air conditioning, and a pool off the back patio! The views from our villa 29 are breathtaking! We have television, hot showers, and a beautifully renovated villa! My complaints about Red Frog are as follows: There are no good restaurants here. They have... More

Bocas del Toro has been on my list for a long time and went for 10 days and stayed at 3 different places around the archipelago. Red Frog was my favorite primarily because how beautiful it was. Staying in town was a little rustic and no beach and the other place was a little removed for us so we kind... More

This was my 2nd stay at Red Frog in the Villas. It is a great place. Good Marina, 2 great beaches, rainforest/jungle, with beautiful villas and landscaping. Villas can be a little pricier than some other places on Isla Bastimentos, but offer modern amenities and the food and drink here is not expensive. The Caribbean and/or jungle views are fantastic...

Red Frog Resort is in a really lovely location with beautiful beaches. We booked 2 bed villa for 2 nights and were surprised that it looked exactly like a suburban house surrounded by other houses which seems strangely at odds with the luxurious tropical surroundings. The villas were very comfortable with 2 bathrooms, huge living room, very well-equipped kitchen, barbecue... More

We stayed at the resort from Jan 04th to Jan 07th. Staff were very friendly and the villa we were given was really outstanding. Beaches are not sooo nice, we expected calmer waters and more caribbean flair. A convinience store is definitely missing at the resort.
