My visit to Al Natural Resort was, by far, the most relaxing vacation I've ever had. No phones. No cars. Great food. I stayed in the original hut. Shower/bathroom built around a tree. No wall facing the water so a great view every morning. Wonderful swimming at the beach. Ride in a cayuco to a village for a walk through... More

This is the place we've been looking for. For us the perfect balance of remoteness with comfort, relaxation, excellent food, opportunities for good snorkelling off the shore or by a short boat ride to Coral Caye. After our days of walking, relaxing, snorkelling we would sit on our deck for happy hour and watch the sunset followed by a great... More

This was our second trip to the Al Natural and we were happy to find four years later that things there were as wonderful as the first time! Fantastic food by chef Vincent , free sh and lovingly prepared. The unending pouring of the wine at dinner. A place to hang, read and swim or take part in the many... More

For me, this well thought out resort provided the perfect balance of privacy and sociability. Relaxation and activity. And, Vincent, the food was magnificent! Abner and Federico are unfailingly warm and charming as hosts. Isla Bastimentos is as unspoiled a tropical paradise as one is likely to find on this continent. Loved it.

This was my forth time to stay at Al Natural. The first time was in 2000. Beautify island setting. Open air huts on beach. Slightly rustic, but relaxing. Leave your shoes behind for this place. Highly recommend the all inclusive package. Meals, drinks and daily excursion included. Last trip went snorkeling at the coral garden. Hiked to the bat caves,... More

Book EARLY!!! This destination was one of the most unique vacation spots our family has visited. Truly worth the 1 hour plane ride from Panama City to Bocas and the 40 min. boat ride from Bocas to the resort. An unforgettable experience that is not to be missed if you are planning on being in Central America and you want... More

We had a wonderful time at Al Natural for the 3 nights diving package. Even though the weather was rainy the first 2 days the staff did a great job making our family vacation a very enjoyable & memorable time. Chef Vicente & his team went out of their way to accommodate our special dietary needs & every dinner was... More

We stayed at Al Natural for 4 nights and we had the most amazing experience. We flew Air Panama from Panama City to Boca. We were met at the airport to be transported to Al Natural office. The shuttle was waiting for us and took us to the resort. On arrival we were met by Abner, one of the managers,... More
