If you have done your research then you have probably come to the same conclusion that we did. If you want to go to Isla Bastimentos, Case Cayuko is where you want to be. There are not many rooms and you need to book early. We attempted to book well in advance, during high season and there was only availability... More

We had wonderful time at Al Natural Resort! The accommodations were comfortable, clean and make for a relaxing experience. The food was amazing and our group is still talking about the cucumber soup..yum! If you're looking to get away to relax then there is no better place then Al Natural.

Al Natural on Bastimentos Island is reached by a 40 minute boat ride from their office and dock in Bocas del Toro. The ride is lovely with many mangrove islands to view along the journey. In fact there are so many mangroves and proper islands that when you are at Al Natural you have the impression that you are looking... More

we had a wonderful time at Al Natural Resort. The staff were welcoming and accommodating, the food was incredible, and the surroundings were stunning. We also had sun every day! I would come back in a second. We even extended our stay here by an additional day because we just couldn't leave!

Worth every penny. Located on an island with full service breakfast, lunch and dinner: all home cooked! The meals are eaten family style so if you dont like other people, dont go here! They offer different excursions (additonal fee), can set up scuba diving (additional fee) and have ocean kayaks to play around. The host of the resort is extremely... More

After all of the reviews of this resort, I was expecting much more than what we got. Yes, the "host" Abner is absolutely great and a lot of fun at the bar, no question about it. Because of the price and reviews, we were expecting our hut, which we upgraded, to be above decent accommodation so I was pretty shocked... More

Stayed for 4 nights in January 2015. Because Al Natural is off the grid, plan and you will have a wonderful time. It is like camping on the beach. Because you eat with and see the same people there is a dependency on who is there with you. The people (Vincent and Abner) are wonderful and we found the guests... More

When we travel we want: close to nature, good food, not a lot of people, possibility to walk off in nature on our own, wild life close, good snorkeling and diving, freindly and service minded personel, flexibility, layed back, quiet, far from cities, no fancy dressing for meals... Al natural was the absolute perfect place for us in all means.... More

Located right on the beach, this cluster of huts offers a rustic oasis in the tropical jungle. One should not expect the luxury of a 5 star mega resort, but rather a quiet and comfortable retreat without wifi and phones. Excursions are offered every day, meals are simple but very adequate. Safety is NOT an issue, and Abner (the omnipresent... More

We spent two weeks at Al Natural, from 20 December, 14 to 5 December, 15. Nothing but grand and gracious reviews for Michel, Vincent, Abner (owner, chef and dive instructor, respectively) and all of the staff at Al Natural. What is Al Natural? It is a resort like no other; it is a way to rid oneself from the commercials,... More
