Why Susan chose Bocas del Toro

Having traveled to Costa Rica, Equador, The Gallapagos Islands, and then to Bastimentos, we knew we wanted to have a special place where our family could go and see unique species of animals and birds. When we visited Red Frog Beach we knew this was the place, a secluded island with various activities and beautiful beaches.

What makes this villa unique

The most unique item of this villa is its one of the few villa's that has 3 triple pane sliding doors, giving spectacular views of the Caribbean whether you are in the kitchen, dining room, great room or the master bedroom. This villa has an open floor plan. Also, it is the only villa on the island with a pool the shape of a sea turtle.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Jerry/Susan.

We are here in the villa, the place is really amazing.

You have a beautiful home. The whole family is delighted.

My parents are returning on the 14th to Argentina.

After that with my wife and childrens we will continue on vacation until February 20.

This place is huge for us. but we are really in love with the villa.

For that reason I wanted to see if it is available until 20 February and then if you could give us a special price considering that we are only a couple.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

Traveling thru North America, Europe and Asia we've seen and stayed at many rental properties. This villa at Bastimento, Panama is exceptional. It reminded me of a bungalow with its lush tropics and a beautiful open breezy floor plan. The large open deck overlooking the royal blue Caribbean Sea was picturesque. My husband and I went with some of our beloved friends and enjoyed many beautiful mornings with coffee on the deck. The house itself with its exquisite decor was extremely clean and well stocked. Non-smokers paradise🙏򣰼􏏼. The beach was within walking distance and well kept by very attentive Staff. We enjoyed swimming, snorkeling, zip lining and cooling off on the property's pool at the end of the day. Loved the cozy restaurants on the island but my favorites were the ones owned and operated by the locals. Food was to die for. Star gazing at night was spectacular and often left us speechless. My recommendation: come with a sense of adventure and let yourself relax/ enjoy. Bastimento and Red Frog Beach (one of our top beaches ever experienced) will be revisited by us for sure. Traveling for me around the globe is a simply pleasure of life.....I'm glad I did this Villa in Bocas del Toro. We will be back.

Wonderful villa overlooking prisitne beaches

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband and I and our 23 and 25 year old kids) had a beautiful and relaxing week at Jerry and Susan's villa at the Red Frog Resort. The location of the villa is ideal-high enough over the beaches to catch a nice breeze and a plunge pool to cool off, but only a 15 minute walk down to Turtle or Red Frog Beach. We are beach people and these were some of the loveliest and clean beaches and you walk for stretches and see no one else, but if you want company and good drinks-walk down Red Frog to Palmar and NachoMamas. We were here during some rains, so definitely needed some good Teva-like sandals to walk to North Beach (worth the trek) and made walking on the unpaved roads easier to and from the beaches. The staff are very accommodating and other highlights including snorkeling (the staff arranged with Gustavo-he is great) and 2 amazing dive days with Boca Dive Center (very professional). My duaghter and husband also arranged to surf the reef through the surfing place on Red Frog (Chapo) which they said was amazing. Great meal at Firefly (Old Bank-you need to have the front desk rent a boat and driver for you) and Palmar restaurant down Red Fog Beach. Otherwise we rented a grill and had amazing meals on the porch overlooking the ocean. Sad to say that 2 in our group had work they had to do but the internet was excellent and so they were able to mix vacation and work with no problems. WE did not bother with the golf cart rentals but mostly walked or called the front desk for a pick-up without a problem. We shopped in Bocas for food (Islal Colon supermarket for basics and alcohol, the gourmet shop if you want specialties) en route from the airport which was great for meals and snacks without leaving the villa

Owner's Response: Thank you for your gracious review. Susan and I are so happy you took advantage of all the Bocas area has to offer. We also enjoy walking the resort instead of renting a golf cart. Hopefully you will be back. Again, Thank You.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 days in paradise. The Villa is better than shown with incredible views of the Caribbean from their wrap-around deck. Multiple nearly private pristine beaches are minutes away by golf cart. We took a yoga class, went snorkeling and took in the worlds best star gazing. Management responded quickly and yet were not underfoot. You won't want to leave!

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely stunning!! It has everything that you need for a perfect vacation. It was even more beautiful than the photos!! It was so clean and perfectly appointed for a luxurious stay! The porch is perfect for morning coffee or having a meal at the gathering table while overlooking the stunning vistas!! There was so much to do while we were there. We did yoga on the beach. There were surf lessons, zip lining knd kayak rentals. We found cool trails to hike and saw amazing wildlife such at iguanas and exotic birds (they were in the trees out front) and sloths and red frogs. We even saw a pelican on our trip into the resort. The pool was delicious and the beaches were perfect and private. It was a wonderful spot for a romantic getaway!! The stars were so close and visible at night I felt like we could reach up and touch them. The restaurants in the island had delicious fresh food choices and yummy drinks! We also felt the service from red frog resort staff was amazing! We never had to wait for anything and they were curtious and professional. I can not wait to go back again!! Susan and Jerry thank you for such a wonderful place !! I wish there were 100 stars to give this place as it was our best vacation ever!!
