Let me begin by saying THANK YOU to Scott, Maiky, Mama, Taluch, Chato and the rest of the amazing staff at Red Frog...you have all been wonderful and we will never forget you. Secondly, to those of you who came here expecting to be pampered like you're staying at the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton, you clearly didn't do your research and should take your pretentious self elsewhere. Red Frog is for laid-back, fun-loving adventurous people who embrace nature, the local culture, and adore the breathtaking beauty of the jungle and the beach. Oh, and the beach is not far, so don't let previous reviews mislead you...it's a mere 2-minute walk along a nice path. If I had to describe Red Frog in one word if would be "paradise"; if I could use as many words as I like I would say it's tropical serenity and beauty at its finest. There's a sense of calm that overtakes you the minute you arrive; the beauty surrounding you is unparalleled. The second you meet Scott and Maiky and see how welcoming and gracious they are, you feel at home. Anything we may have needed was taken care of immediately, and the staff really bends over backwards to ensure that you're enjoying your stay. The bungalows are FABULOUS and although it takes a night or two to get used to the complete darkness of night and the sounds of the jungle, by day 3 we slept like babies and dreaded ever having to leave...comfortable bed, protected from insects by properly placed netting, and cleaned daily. The meals were spectacular, the beverages cold and abundant, and the company entertaining. If you surf, there's no reason to stay anywhere else... Taluch is your own personal surf guide and took us to breaks every day. One day we decided to go snorkeling (best snorkeling ever by the way!) and Chato was our guide for that excursion. Where else can you go on excursions and be the only couple there along with your very own guide? Staying at Red Frog and participating in activities didn't feel touristy (because who wants that)...it felt as though we were at home. Oh, and I haven't mentioned the beach, have I? There's really no need to because Red Frog Beach is SPECTACULAR. Takes Caribbean to a whole other level. If you're looking to relax, surf, embrace nature and culture, and meet wonderful people who will become lifelong friends then stop looking around already and book your bungalow now!
