I'll make this pretty straightforward. We recently stayed in Beachmere West and The Bullfrog. It was very nice. Updated. Spacious. Comfortable. Great view. We had a visitor stay in the Victorian. That was very nice too. Views are really good. It's an older building, but is very good for 2 people. I would give a thumbs up on both of those 2 buildings.
As for the Bullfrog.....ugh. It's very small. On another street....with no direct access to the main building. You feel like you are an outcast from the other guests. Ceiling height is about 7 feet....maybe less in some spots. It was clean and everything worked. Would I stay there again? No. Would I recommend it? No. The poster from South Hadley before me loved it. Good for them. They talked about play space, swings, etc. Not to be a snob....but c'mon. It's an old wood swing set. It's very small. The issue is if you can afford to stay in the main building, then the Bullfrog is a big letdown.
I will say that the service was very good. The breakfast provided was very nice. Our kids enjoyed it.
They have a fitness area. It's pretty good. A couple treadmills, a stationary bike, and some dumbbells. it's good for a quick fix. Very adequate for the older generation that visit the property. (It's a family resort, but there was a lot of older visitors when we were there.)
Bottom line....would I come back? Yes. Absolutely. To the Bullfrog? Not me.
