"What an Amazing Week!"
I am a travel agent so I have travelled extensively & worldwide. I am telling you this resort is one of the most unique & excellent & fun places I have ever stayed. 5 of us stayed in a luxury villa & all of us loved this place. All staff were attentive & prompt & helpful. The villas are luxurious. The grounds are like staying in a Garden of Eden. A great beach area & I also looked at the jungle lodges which are way cool too. The included buffet breakfast was very good. This place is picturesque to say the least. I hope to return someday & I recommend it to all my friends & family.
"Beautiful setting, now stop building and focus on perfecting!"
This place is truly special, made so by the location and the people and the staff. However, as noted a by a few others, this is not exactly a resort, but more of a residential development, where you can rent homes and bungalows from owners via the property management team. In short, I loved it, but it's time for Red Frog to stop building bungalows and start perfecting the offering on hand. The property is at the inflection point of being an eco-ish residential camp or a luxury resort and it's hard to tell which way it will end up. There's really only one restaurant, which is a beach shack that is decent but overwhelmed in the evenings (2 hours to get served). There's no resort pool area, but a few small pools scattered among the jungle lodges and private pools in the larger rental homes. Transit within the property (which is very spread out) is on gravel roads which are rough by any measure. It takes a long time to get around the place, even if you call for a golf cart to get you every time, which seems silly. Our cabin was beautiful and clean and well built. The staff are fantastic, across the board. Well done by all and I'd love to return. However, I'd like to return to a place that is not much bigger, but just a little better in terms of amenities. It seems that up to now, it has been the priority of the developer and managers to conquer more of the jungle and sell more plots and build more bungalows (and soon condos, no please!). The priority now should shift to working with what's been built and turning it into a truly first-class experience, that saves the remaining forest and beach and animals. Maybe the financial model requires a certain number of sold bungalows to justify a better restaurant, or community pool, or other shared amenities, but I hope the number is reached soon. Please don't build the proposed condos on Red Frog Beach in Bastimentos. Density is good in cities, not on beaches or adjacent to national parks. Please don't pave any more jungle. Just fix the roads you do have and pause on growth. Please set fire to the golf course plans, just in case anyone still wants to resurrect that idea someday. Bastimentos is too special to be flattened and fertilized for old men to play a dying sport. Let them have Cabo and Scottsdale and save the jungle for the Red Frogs which gave the place the name in the first place. Thank you Red Frog for everything. Don't change too much under the pressure for growth.
"No one said a word"
There was murder on red frog beach the week before we got there...not one person told us to be careful....the person is still boat caught and we are rather upset that no one cautioned us. This should have been done. The girl was alone.
"Rest, relaxation and wildlife ..."
We enjoyed our stay at Red Frog, although it wouldn't be everyone's choice, but it suited us perfectly. There was a good mix of rest and relaxation on the deserted Turtle Beach and wildlife ... Acorn Woodpeckers, Red Lored Parrots, Black Vultures and lots of other birds, the infamous Red Frogs, Sloth and Capuchin Monkeys. As others have said everything is set at a distance from the villa's, so you either have to be prepared for a 10-15 minutes walk, hire a golf buggy or call reception and they will send a free golf buggy taxi. We tended to walk down to the restaurant (beach bar) for breakfast and to the beach, but used the services of a golf buggy taxi to return to our villa. From the website we got the impression that this is a luxury resort and with that one would expect a smart restaurant or choice of restaurants, but in fact the main restaurant is a beach bar (Punta Lava) and that was slightly disappointing. That said the food was excellent there although the menu was a bit limited in choice (especially if you don't eat fish). They are also in the process of building a new Club House which we were told would have a smarter dining experience, which will certainly improve the limited eating choice/facilities. We had planned to do the zip wire on the island, but couldn't really justify the cost. Other considerations - we were not worried about going back to the mainland to Bocos Town, if this is something you want to do bear in mind that this relies on a water taxi, and the last one back to the island is around 8.00/8.30 pm. If you like the idea of a remote island with a bit of wildlife and away the hustle and bustle of a town this is worth considering.
"Remote Location With All the Amenities!"
The location is picturesque, the jungle lodge breathtaking, the activities abundant, the food mouthwatering and the staff unquestionably friendly, knowledgable and attentive. I was not sure what to expect at such a remote location and I was overwhelmed by the fantastic vacation we had.
