We stayed here for 5 nights in September and it was magical. We even added an extra night because we couldn't bear to leave. It was the perfect combination of low key relaxation, wonderful food, and delightfully social mealtimes. I have not slept so well, perhaps ever, as I did looking out at the water and hearing the sounds of... More

We would recommend Al Natural in heartbeat. If you are okay with open air rooms, no AC, and no WIFI this is a dream location. The food was amazing as was the staff. We went diving everyday with Federico and it was amazing to dive with just the two of us and him. We also splurged for the SEVEN course... More

A truly amazing off-grid eco lodge with fantastic facilities, activities, and food. Great snorkling, diving, naturalist and cultural opportunities. Best part are the incredible staff/hosts. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

After searching all around Bocas and even getting some first hand opinions from friends and friends to friends I decided to spend part of our honey vacations in Al Natural. First I have to mention that it was very nice to deal with Michel one of the owners over email, I wanted to be great and wrote to him several... More

Looking for a romantic carribean getaway just around the corner of amazing diving and snorkeling spots? You've found it! A 30 minutes boat ride away from bustling Boca Town, lie the "Robinson Crusoe"-style huts of Al Natural on the far end of Isla Bastimentos. The huts, open to the seaside, are spacious and separated wide enough from each other guaranteeing... More

If you are looking for an island paradise in the Bocas area that is environmentally friendly, this is your place. Just be prepared for a lot of wildlife (both the good and bad kinds) and no air conditioning. I think this place would be paradise in the winter. Or if I was a diver. But in September, it was pretty... More

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 :)
