After visiting Red Frog Bungalows in July/August of 2014, my husband and I decided to go back in November 2016. Once again, our stay was AMAZING! Some things have changed...there is a new house that is able to be rented right on the beach, Nachyo Momma's Taco Bar is now open on the beach and owned by Scott and Maiky,...

I stayed at Red Frog Bungalows in September which is when the hotel isn't normally open as the staff are on holiday but Scott kindly let us stay and provided breakfast for us. My group was split across both bungalows which fitted in perfectly to the beautiful surroundings. We got to know Scott quite well and found out that he...

I had the most amazing time staying at Red Frog Bungalows. The accommodation is wonderful and located on the edge of the jungle, right next to a beautiful beach of clear blue water.

I can't say good enough things about Scott, his team and the bungalows - together they made for a really special trip. Scott and Mikey are the most attentive hosts and thought of our needs before we'd even had them. They went out of their way to look after us and yet never made us feel crowded in the slightest....

Came here last year for a surf trip and to this day I'm jonesing to go back, by far the best experience I've had in Central America and I've pretty much been everywhere! The grounds, staff and Scotts wave knowledge of which breaks are best at any given time is priceless.

My friends and I have traveled extensively around Central America, and I can say, with my hand on the Good Book, that Red Frog Bungalows has been our favorite experience thus far. The setting is perfect: Clear blue water, a lively but not loud beach, killer waves just a short walk or boat ride away, and, of course, little red...
