I stayed at Red Frog Resort and Spa with my husband for our honeymoon and this place could not have been better. It is a short boat ride from Bocas town and has everything you need. The resort is fairly spread out and the beach and restaurant are a moderate walk. If you don't want to or aren't able to...

Joanna - thank you for coming! One note that may help future travelers is that there is now opening a island grocery store that will be very convenient for guests. We are so glad you enjoyed talking with and meeting the staff.

I wasn't sure what we were in for with the cost of our villa being so cheap. When we arrived and it was a massive 3 bedroom stone villa with it's own private pool I was shocked. The beaches are incredible and the scenery and wildlife are really incredible. Definitely take the time to get off the beaten path a...

Jarisa Garcia and the staff at Red Frog Resort are terrific! Our guests were floored not only by the views of Red Frog Beach but by the service of these special people. We can't thank you enough! We knew this location was perfect but it turned out the people at Red Frog Resort were just as wonderful.

The island was beautiful!!! But there was not much to do on the island, I would say this would be a perfect spot for a romantic getaway. three places to eat in the island , with limited menus. Other islands to find interesting places to eat, but you have to get there and back by boat,

I came to Red Frog with two girlfriends. We rented a 3 room Villa, which was perfect! The interior of the villa was very clean and modern with plenty of room to spread out. I loved having our own pool and washer/dryer (can't beat coming home with clean clothes!). The staff was so kind and helpful. The restaurant has tasty...

My husband and I are avid travellers and have stayed in many hotels and resorts. Red Frog Villas definitely offers a unique and luxurious experience. We had a spacious three bedroom villa with a private pool and breathtaking ocean view. Besides the beautiful villa, we also enjoyed everything Red Frog has to offer. The secluded beaches and ziplining were a...

We (mid-60s couple) stayed here for two nights in March 2016. We did our homework and knew this wasn't a conventional resort property (which from other reviews seems to have been a surprise to some visitors) -- it's basically a bunch of large modern private residences that are being managed as short term rentals by the resort. The property on...

Thank you for coming - Beach Club will be done soon but we agree this is nor your typical resort. Discovered by Columbus in 1502A.D. and everything is spread out which maximizes privacy and views of nature and the ocean.

I would not describe the Red Frog Beach Resort as a "resort." It is a collection of suburban style "mcmansions" with the feel of a VRBO. To qualify as a resort there should be a bathroom at or near the beach (there isn't), there should be a shower at or near the beach (there isn't), the staff should be welcoming...

We a glad you saw a lot of wildlife. The grocery store and the beach club will be finished soon. We have a lot of room and our guests are typically not bothered by construction we only have 45 units on 1500 acres so it is very spread out. Please see our front desk to get good rates into Bocas...

Love this place. Amazing beach and very friendly staff. Getting there is a bit tough as you have to take a boat rode from Bocas but it's well worth it. The only thing we missed was that we never got to see any monkeys!

Hi Jennifer: If it was too easy to get here this place would feel like Cancun:) We offer a unique experience to serial travelers who want to go to places that are original and authentic - our guests appreciate that this is not a tourist trap. Those Capuchin monkeys can be hard to spot...hopefully you at least saw a sloth...
