It seems like this "Hotel" was abandoned by his owner, is not on very good conditions, the pool was not even working, they don't provide towels, even thou it says that is you loose the towels you will be charge $20. It has a really good potencial because the location but it seems none cares.

Great location, great service, attention, great facilities, perfect place for surfers, bike riders, adventure travelers but also anybody that wants to spend some quiet time in a nature surrounded environment. The area in which is located has some of the most beautiful beaches and forest through out the whole country. Beautiful walk distance beaches, comfortable rooms, great prices, definitely recommended!

Red Frog Villas is a close walk to Playa Carmen and about a 20 minute walk from awesome beach breaks in Santa Teresa. There are a few supermarkets and restaurants very very close as well.
