I thought that Red Frog beach was overrated, the sand is nice and lots of space to sunbathe. The waves are refreshing but too strong for poor swimmers. Restaurants are very run down and the sun loungers expensive. Can't deny its a pretty beach but probably are nicer ones on the main island.

Dear Valued red Frog Guest, We thanks you for staying at Red frog, The combination of incredible nature with the confort of a Villa with pool with the option of two beaches within the complex and the option of a third with a 20min discovery treck, is the reason to stay at our property. It is a soft adveture location:...

I had been to Red Frog before the resort was built to this time I was curious to see it finished. We went to the bar to have a beer and it was simply OK. The service was slow, the bar was OK, not anything fancy. Bathrooms were nothing special.

Dear visitor, Thanks for the comment, it would have probably been better if we had the chance to show you and your party the full development and we are sure your comments would have been more accurate.

Well this is way over due. We first stayed here in October 2013 and had such a great time decided to go back this past October. If your traveling from the states keep in mind it can be a full day of travel to get there. Two planes, cab ride and 15 min water taxi. Be sure to stop off...

Spent four nights at a three-bedroom villa on Red Frog Beach in November 2015. Contrary to their marketing, this is not a "resort" - it is a rental house plopped down in the middle of the jungle with no amenities, poor access to the outside world, and food so bad it would make an inmate surly. First the good: We...

So before we start, a couple caveats: a) we were there in low season and b) I had a chest cold for a couple days, so was pretty limited in what we could get out and do. Also, by no means should this review reflect poorly on staff - they were totally fine especially with the mental drag that comes...

We were there only three days, so we usually...

For those who love lonely beaches and tropical vegetation (and nothing else) Red Frog resort is a small paradise with a wonderful wilderness.
