We spent Christmas week 2009 at Red Frog Beach Resort and it was wonderful. Got perfect weather everyday, beautiful swimming at the beach, nice hikes,a day of snorkellng (only $15.00 each, with equipment) on the other side of the island and great service. Very affordable as well!

If you like nature in a pristine setting then this is the place. We loved Costa Rica but wanted to experience something different. We found Red Frog Resort several years ago and spent a week there diving, surfing and just relaxing. It is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been. If you like something that is off the beaten path then I recommend Red Frog Resort. It is located in Bastimentos Island in Panama.
The construction is moving along and they have done everything to ensure the ecology of the land has not been disturbed. It is a resort among nature and is absolutely beautiful. You will see exotic birds, monkeys and all the plants indigenous to the rainforests of central america. It is definately a must see.

I stayed at the Redfrog Beach Resort with some friends and family for a week and we absolutely loved our stay! The villa we stayed in was clean, comfortable, and felt like home, Which throughout my travels I have found to be quite difficult to find. The view is breathtaking and the surroundings are nothing short of a jungle! One thing we enjoyed most were the beautiful beaches. We frequently found ourselves to be the only ones on the beach which was quite enjoyable. The only thing i would reccomend would be to bring bug repelant and wear sunscreen!

I stayed at Red Frog Resort with a small group of friends for a week and absolutely fell in love with the location! Very exclusive area with lots of privacy. Beautiful natural and untouched beaches, green lush vegetation, perfect weather. The house was gorgeous and very clean. I would recommend bug repellent and some close-toed shoes if you want to do any hiking :) I would also strongly recommend any of the tours--Snorkeling in particular was really fun. The only bummer was that the internet wasn't installed yet, but would be within a week or so. There are internet cafes on the main island, so it wasn't a huge problem. I definitely want to go back. Such a surreal environment.

Our family of four (children ages 9 & 11) stayed at Red Frog Resort and would highly recommend it to other vacationers. Red Frog is the type of place to go when you want to experience the sights, sounds and sensations of tropical jungle - island living. However, without the usual discomforts that would accompany a rugged vacation. Our villa was beyond comfortable. It eluded a peaceful tranquility as it is serenely situated on a hillside overlooking the ocean, with beautiful décor and amenities to help us relax and reconnect as a family. This vacation was also a retreat, although initially the lack of internet and TV seemed inconvenient, not having the distractions of other fast paced holiday destinations became a blessing as we enjoyed much needed quality time as a family. The staff (especially Justin and Miranda) were very accommodating and attentive to our needs. We were able to enjoy an active and adventurous trip (hiking, scuba, snorkelling, cave tours, kayaking and boogie boarding at their awesome beaches,) suitable to every family member, while enjoying a secluded quiet get away. We loved our time on Bastimentos Island!

Me, my wife and our 4 kids stayed there for a week; we also have 3 visitors from Panama city staying with us during the weekend.

Once we got to Red Frog Beach Club we were received at the resort by Justin who helped us get settled and was also available for all our needs during the whole week.

The villa was fantastic, great view, you could relax and hear the waves from the gallery, it also had everything we required (A/C in all rooms, fans, washer & dryer, dishwasher, etc,,,).
Currently you do not have internet access or TV, also cell phone signal was only available for customers of Panama Cable & Wireless but we got a loaner phone from Justin

Hike to the beach was around 10 minutes....beach was perfect and very private.

We called Justin a couple of days during our stay and he arranged boat transportation for us to visit other beaches and get our groceries.

We had a perfect time as a family and loved every minute at the resort.

We spend a week at Red Frog Beach Resort and had the best vacation. It was paradise. The beach, the hiking, the resort home were all more then we expected. The resort home is more like being at your own home but better. The people are great.
