De Bocas del Toro-archipel ligt in de Caribische zee ten noorden van Panama. Op de eilanden heerst een relaxed ‘slow down’ sfeertje, waardoor het een rustpunt is tijdens uw Panama vakantie.
"A beautiful setting in a poorly managed facility"
It was very evident to us that there is no manager on site, or with any presence. Our requests from the staff were not fulfilled time after time and that was disappointing, in a place that calls itself a resort. Most of the staff are not smiling and they don't go out of their way to assist. There is a fully equipped kitchen (you can even bake cakes if you want) but only salt and pepper. I assume a small carton of milk and oil (and maybe some spices) would have been helpful for someone only spending a few days here. The breakfast included in the price is okay, not enough vegetable (a lot of carbs, fruit and an omelet made as you wish). The room itself is clean but the cleaning lady came very late (we were out all day and only when we returned she arrived). The shuttle service is inefficient and makes it more of an obligation to rent a golf cart (which is priced 100$!!!! A day - unbelievable). No gym or fitness center, no activities that are free of charge offered by the resort, no walking trails although this property is huge, and travel to Bocas costs 14$ per person daytime and 20$ night time. We stated at a hotel in that was priced the same and had 4 daily boats for hotel guests that were FREE, and if you wanted one privately you were requested to pay 10$ per boat (not per person). The beach is absolutely gorgeous but there were people around us that we're clearly not hotel guests which made us feel a bit uncomfortable).
"beautiful resort but limited dining and very costly to get off the island"
We went to Red Frog for Spring break 2016. The resort is beautiful. Villas are very clean and the grounds are well cared for. The staff was attentive and polite. There are two reasons that I would not go back at this point. The dining is very very limited, and the quality of the dining available is average at best. If you want to get off the island to shop for groceries or to go on an excursion it costs 7-10 dollars, This is a problem, especially with a family of six. I would go back if they provided free transportation off the island and there was more dining available.
"Just the holiday we were looking for!"
As so many have shared, this is a very remote and beautiful location still under development. This is exactly what my husband and I were seeking for this holiday. We had a beautiful house (villa) on the beach. Our pool was wonderful, just steps to a private beach. I booked a 2-bedroom villa but we ended up with a 4-bedroom home. There is so much wildlife, we had a sloth cross the back yard one afternoon. We had so much privacy, we listened to music, laughed and talked without worry that a neighbor was nearby. There were only two topics which prevented me from rating the resort a "5" 1. I contacted the hotel a few days before travel to inquire on the status of the on island store opening and was told it would be open the day of our arrival. It wasn't. Not even close, and according to the front desk they were 1-2 months out from opening it. That was unfortunate, since we did not bring food in from town expecting the store to be open. The restaurant delivered us soda and mixers while we settled in and we went into the town of Bocas to purchase groceries. 2. The master bedroom air conditioning stopped working part-way through our holiday. The staff was unable to coordinate a repair, so my husband and I needed to sleep in a different room (double bed vs. a king), but the air conditioner was working. Other tips: We made a mistake when we landed on the island - we did not see our driver (to the docks) and ended up paying for our taxi ride to the docks and for the boat ride to the resort. The spa was nice as well, a very interesting experience (in a good way). We hired a private chef - truly amazing (and so much food). Tracking down the coordinator to book our private chef took 2 days but well worth the effort. The staff was very nice and helpful too. Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay at Red Frog.
"Beautiful beaches, NOT a resort. Still a work in progress."
Red Frog Beach Resort is NOT a resort. I read many reviews saying it is a collection of villas very spread out, but it is not quite what I expected, so I wanted to provide others details so you know what you are getting. I live in the U.S., but have traveled extensively, I love the beach, and I am active. This was my first time to Panama. I stayed in the Jungle Village 6 with my wife and two kids (10 and 12) ($262 per night). Accomodations: Very cool "chalet" type of 3 story home way up on a hill. Two separate bedrooms on the ground floor with AC. Outside shower and toilet (no AC).This has a wow factor, except that you need to scare away large geckos and grasshoppers each time you enter the bathroom. This was also odd, when getting up to use the bathroom at night. All of these rooms are accessed from outside. Climb the outside stairs to second floor living space (no AC, but all screened in) with kitchen, dining table, sofa, and balcony looking at ocean in three directions over tree tops. Nice view! We even had bats (outside, so my kids liked that). There is a small shared pool for the 6 units. I never saw another person at the pool, so it was nice. The pool water had a strange taste (not that I try to taste pool water). Overall, a one-of-a-kind experience and something I am glad I did for 2 nights, but I would choose something different if going to Bocas Del Toro again. The problem is there is no resort. There are no facilities or amenities to speak of except internet access. The "Resort": This resort is a real-estate development. It is a collection of private villas that has been in development since 2004 and the company then rents them out when owners are not using them. More villas (traditional private homes) are being built closer to the beach, but all of the villas are priced around $1,000 - $2,000 per night. For the price I paid, let alone villa prices, I would expect more amenities. Specifically: There is a single restaurant on the beach with a beautiful view. The staff was nice and it suffices, but that it is it. Costs for drinks were reasonable (beer $3 or $1.50 happy hour 4-9 everyday!), but food was limited and a bit pricey for what you get ($15-$30 for lunch or dinner). The included buffet breakfast was more like a Holiday Inn Express, than a Marriott. Not want you expect for a resort. There is no pool at the restaurant, but there are about 10 lounge chairs and a few picnic tables at the beach for guest use. There are no included water sports or equipment. No paddle boards, boogie boards, masks/snorkels, windsurfers, soccer/volleyballs, ect... The only option is to rent a kayak ($35 each for the day). Beach towels are provided in the rooms. They have started building a second restaurant with a small pool near the beach, but I never saw anyone working on it and it looks pretty far from being complete. No one could tell me when it would be finished. The roads are not paved, nor even well maintained. They are gravel and difficult for the trucks (shuttles) to traverse. They are steep and not easy to walk. I read you need a golfcart. TRUE! They now charge $100 per day (not the $35 I had read about). So I was left with the shuttle. This was pretty good. We never had to wait more than 5 minutes. A store will open soon, but until then, you MUST bring your own provisions from Bocas town. We brought snacks and drinks with us, so my kids were okay and we never left the island. A water taxi is $7 per person each way, if you want to go to dinner or shopping or to another beach, so plan accordingly. The free resort boats leave at 9:30, 12 and 3 each day from Red Frog Marina (no facilities) to Bocas Town (15 minutes). I met several property owners who enjoy staying at Red Frog. They stay for for 2-3 weeks and relax at their own homes. I like more activity when I am staying at a resort. I enjoyed Bocas Del Toro, but for me, Red Frog Beach Resort was one-time thing.
"Combines luxury with an adventurous nature encounter."
The Red Frog Resort is perfect if you are looking for a wonderful place to relax while enjoying an exotic Caribbean local with luxurious touches. You can enjoy a lush manicured rain forest in amazing privacy while cruising silently among the chirping red frogs in your golf cart. You can take an afternoon dip and enjoy the sunset and amazing cacophony of jungle sounds from your own crystal clear plunge pool. There are two restaurant options on the property. One is more casual but certainly offering basic food options that also provides nightly diversions. The other offers more upscale options in a spectacular setting overlooking the beach. We spent our week moving between the two and were very satisfied. Bocas del Toro and Bastimentos Island give you access to a choice of well-run and accessible scuba diving options. I would recommend Bocas Water Sports. The coral reefs and animal life might not be as over the top as Belize or Bonaire but they still provide some very satisfying options to explore interesting reefs with smaller animal life and even an interesting wreck of an old ferry. Much to my relief, Iâ€™m a planner and logistics nut, getting to the dive shop in Bocas town was a breeze. The water taxi was timely, inexpensive and even enjoyable in the quiet of the early morning on the water among this cluster of beautiful islands. As an added plus for our group with members who are gluten free with Celiac, the head of the food service operations actually studied Celiac disease in culinary school. He was ready, willing, and able to work with us and made some great GF pancakes, pasta and pizza. In this regard, make sure you emphasize to the staff when making your arrangements that they should tell the head of the food service operations that you are coming so he can purchase the provisions and plan ahead for your needs. As you might imagine he canâ€™t just run to a local Whole Foods and stock up on GF products. As seasoned zip line critics, we were very pleased that they have a well-developed and interesting zip line course. It was not only safe but had some interesting twists and challenges that were optional. That added to the experience to those in our party who might have felt that they really didnâ€™t need to do another zip line. I would make sure you give yourself enough time so you can spend a day in Bocas Town exploring what they have to offer â€“ shops, local restaurants, night life. Many of the younger hostel based tourists stay in town. Some make it to the hostel on Bastimentos. The staff were great working through the details and our many questions in the planning phase. And they had all the details and logistics worked out upon arrival. Donâ€™t forgetâ€¦this is well off the beaten path so you should expect things might move a little differently than at homeâ€¦but that contributed to the pure joy of the experience.
