Rented a villa here in February. This was a modern 3 bedroom house with pool on the side of a hill overlooking the sea. The house was clean and well furnished. Super comfortable. Red Frog beach resort is a hillside development of homes on the ocean side of the island. Views were spectacular. Beach was great. Find a captain in...

We vacationed at Red Frog with our 13 and 14 year old children over spring break. We stayed in a jungle lodge with a fabulous view, a nice pool and that is about all I can say that is positive. We have stayed in jungle lodges in Costa Rica and Belize and have loved every minute of those jungle experiences....

We had a wonderful 7 night stay here. I knew as we zipped through the mangroves on the boat and arrived at the dock that this was going to be an adventure! Yes, everything is a distance and spread out - but that was what we loved about it. Turtle Beach was great - we pretty much had it to...

The Red Frog resort is an interesting concept. Eco friendly, potable water - brand new villas. Clean, comfortable - but very isolated. They have jungle lodges which look great. We stayed at the very suburban villas. Felt strange to be in the jungle in what felt like a suburban home in anywhere USA. The down size is the long distance...

A quiet island full of sloths! A beautiful beach, including a friendly beach bar. The marina was nice and very helpful organizing tours to different islands. You can easily explore the island in a day. I recommend renting a golf cart.

Thank you - the sloths are around and they are a good reminder to our visitors to slow down and enjoy the island. Monkeys are out in those trees as well but need to sit quietly for a while for them to show up. We pride ourselves on a lot of unique tours to offer guests that do not feel...

Spent a day and night here. Just getting to the resort is half the fun. Depending on how u got to Isla Colon ur journey to the resort will involve at least one water taxi.

The Red Frog resort is quite the ambitious property. First, it is a wonderful place to relax on the beaches, to generally chill out, but also from which to indulge in some interesting and exciting activities. The service is great all around. We were picked up in Bocas Town by 'Captain' Clan, who showed us around and then brought us...

This place is truly special, made so by the location and the people and the staff. However, as noted a by a few others, this is not exactly a resort, but more of a residential development, where you can rent homes and bungalows from owners via the property management team. In short, I loved it, but it's time for Red...

We enjoyed our stay at Red Frog, although it wouldn't be everyone's choice, but it suited us perfectly. There was a good mix of rest and relaxation on the deserted Turtle Beach and wildlife ... Acorn Woodpeckers, Red Lored Parrots, Black Vultures and lots of other birds, the infamous Red Frogs, Sloth and Capuchin Monkeys. As others have said everything...
