It was my first visit to Tobago, to Castara and to the Naturalist Beach resort. I stayed for 2 weeks and had a good time. The rooms are nicely done, the place has hot water, air condition, wifi, offers breakfast and a cleaning service for the clothes. It's directly at the beach, you can hear the waves rolling on the...

We stayed in Castara for 2 weeks in this resort and have to be honest I loved it! Safe, clean (everyday cleaning), spectacular views, helpful staff and friendly people in the village. The village have everything u might require (if you are not keen on 5* hotels) - atm, bus connections, car rental, restaurants, shops, coral reefs, golden sand beaches,... More

Everything about Castara and The Naturalist exceeded our expectations! We stayed in Wahoo room, which we loved! Great views, large shared verandah and also a smaller private lanai just off the bedroom. Excellent attention to detail throughout Wahoo. Well appointed kitchen that we used daily (including treats in the fridge upon arrival left by management - thank you!). If you... More

Castara Bay is breathtaking. The white-sand beach is home to a relaxed and friendly fishing village. The best place to stay is the Naturalist Beach Resort. It has several apartments right on the beach, steps from great snorkelling and swimming. I stayed in the Blue Marlin suite, with a wonderful veranda overlooking the whole beach. The louvred windows open fully... More

My wife and I just spent 3 nights at the Naturalist Beach Resort and absolutely loved it. By far the best value we encountered on Tobago. Castara is absolutely beautiful and has a nice balance of not-too-touristy but still with enough amenities to feel comfortable. We stayed 3 nights in the newer complex of apartments (the 'Snapper' 2 Bdr apt)... More

Simply the best in Castara if not all of Tobago. Large rooms, well equipped, outstanding views - right on the beach. Tracy the receptionist was great as was Ancle the owner - kind, understanding and extremely pleasant. A great host with a brilliant attitude towards his guests. Cannot fault anything about this place. Everything was clean and comfortable. I am... More

The holy trinity of sun, sea and sand come together at the doorstep of The Naturalist. Similarly, Tobago, Castara and The Naturalist form a combination that is hard to beat anywhere in the Caribbean. Tobago is a beautiful island on its own with a few regions to choose from. Castara in particular while off the beaten path offers holidaymakers the... More

I stayed in the Wahoo room for 6 nights and it was just brilliant. You could your own semi-private second floor deck over looking the bay and a fully private deck that overlooks an adjacent bay. Room was very clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the free laundry service as a bonus. Also took a tour... More

We recently spent two weeks at this delightful establishment right on the beach in the charming village of Castara. Our host, Ancle and his team made us so welcome and comfortable in such a relaxed way and they went that extra mile for us and everyone else. We loved Tobago with it's diverse scenery, charming people and wildlife. We rarely... More

We couldn't possibly have been closer to the beach! Fantastic, clean, self-contained apartment, big and roomy, fully equipped kitchen and 2 big comfortable beds - all with ocean views. The icing on the cake of course was having 2 verandahs right on the beach (1 covered in case of rain or wind), with plenty of space to sit and enjoy... More
