When Abner and Frederico welcomed us with a cheerful "welcome to paradise!!" I guess you do not expect it to be this close to reality! Out there, you will experience the meaning of an easy life! From the food ( thanks to the Chef Vincent and all his little hands ) with only fresh products (the fish arrives every day... More

We spent an incredible week at Al Natural at the beginning of August 2015. The people, food and location were spectacular. Our trip was made especially meaningful as 2 of our kids completed their open water PADI certification courses through the on-site Zapatillas Dive Club. My husband and oldest daughter dove on 3 separate days, as well, and loved it.... More

Words cannot express how accommodating fererico was to allow us to make our 4 padi open water dives. My wife and I showed up via kayak from a nearby hotel to inquire about diving. The hotel was closing for a few weeks and most of the dive gear was already packed up. Not only did they arrange a boat to... More

It was really great there! Nice bungalows, delicious food 3 times a day and time to relax. The staff was friendly, entertaining and we just liked them. These 3 days were a great experiance, different to a touristic hot spots. And another point is, that we were just 6 people there, like a familiy sitting around one big table :)

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
