Red frog beach resort is located on the beautiful island of Bastimentos, and in my opinion it's the nicest island in Bocas. The natural beauty surrounding the resort is breathtaking, they did an amazing job of preserving it.  It's surrounded by the rainforest and only a small walk away from the amazing red frog beach.  The villas are really nice and the spa...

We spent 29 days in Panama, and travelled from Panama City to bocas del toro, with lots of stops along the way! I can honestly say that Red Frog beach was the best acomodations we had in Panama! The Grounds are kept very clean, something that we can't say for most places in Panama... The Villa was beautiful, our favourite...

We were shocked by our amazing villa with private pool, two terraces and ocean views. 4 stars instead of 5 because of a few items below. We would definitely visit again and just hope they work out the minor kinks: -The water taxi shuttle should be included at least for your airport transport. They are charging to take you to...

This is not quite a "resort" though it may become so someday. It's remote; a 15-20min boat ride from the nearest town (Bocas Town). The remoteness would be great, except for the horrible food and mediocre service at the *one* restaurant option you have on property. Fortunately there's a nice hostel a short walk down the beach (or golf cart...

We spent 3 nights at the resort in a large villa with a pool. The resort isn't completely built out yet, so getting to and from places on the property was a challenge. Horribly bumpy roads, long waits for trucks to pick you up and take you places. Very high rental prices for gold carts and after seeing the roads,...

We were here for 9 days and had a wonderful time. Any concerns or questions were taken care of quickly and efficiently. Our villa was very nice and the plunge pool was fun. The weather was perfect which has the resort has no control over. I guess the southern climate is to blame for that.

I spent a few days in Panama City prior to going to Red Frog, and this was definitely the high-light of the trip. You really feel like you're getting away from everything, as it took a plane, taxi, boat and golf cart to get to the villa. The reviews are correct in that not all the roads were paved and...

This resort is on a beautiful island, with fantastic beaches and lots of flora and fauna! Our villa was absolutely gorgeous! And the staff! Right from the front desk, tour desk and our tour guy Marsh, restaurant and porters...we were so impressed! From the restaurant, Jordano, Delmira and Sergio were some of the people that served us regularly, and we...

We stayed at this resort in 2011 and 2016. We had a different villa each time. They both included a private swimming pool and the villas were very modern...loved it!. We rented a golf cart, otherwise you will have a long walk to and from the beach restaurant, water taxi and admin office...it's well worth the price. Water taxi service...

The surroundings are spectacular, there's zip lines, snorkeling, surfing and boats that can take you to town for local sites and shopping. The beaches are fabulous. All of this is terrific when it doesn't rain. We have seen the island red frogs and it's just beautiful. There's a spa as well. I would highly recommend a visit in the dry...
