We stayed at Al Natural for 10 days in October. It is an amazing island getaway for the adventurous souls. Open air bungalows on the edge of the ocean, what more can you ask for! While it seems isolated, there are many things to do on and around the island. Scuba diving was our favorite activity. Abner, Vincent, Junior, and...

We stayed in Al Natural for four nights. This place is perfect if you want to be disconnected from the world completely and close with nature. Otherwise, please do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else. There are about eight bungalows or so, so it may happen that there will be a handful of people if the resort is not...

Dear customer Thank you for all the remarks. We appreciate your constructive criticism, this is always very helpful. We do everything we can in order to improve our level of services, but it is true we are an isolated place. As Travel & Leisure magazine labeled us, we are an eco-outpost and unfortunately this comes with very high running costs...

At first we had to get used to the "rooms" without walls and doors (especially to the bathroom) but then we enjoyed our time there very very much! It`s a paradise were you have your own little beach in front of the room and you can see the sea from your bed. All around you is jungle with all its...

Just simply a lovely place to relax. No internet, no noise, no hurry, no rush to do anything. Great food from head chef and host Vincent. One of the nicest guys you could wish to meet. All the boat crew for the tours are superb and it's in the perfect spot to get a day loafing on Zapatilla or go...

In november 2013 we had a pleasant stay in this resort for 3 days But for diving it is not OK. The dive-equipment was in a poor condition and the availability was not sufficient. So to say I will come back......no.

Al Natural, what can we say! We had the most amazing, amazing holiday and can't thank you enough! The resort is a little paradise! The beaches, literally right outside your balcony, are crystal clear and beautifully warm. The cabins are all open-air, made of beautiful natural wood and kitted out with hammocks and balconies so you can soak up the...

We didn't stay at Al Natural, but took advantage of their dive shop, Zappatillas' Dive Club, and had a terrific day diving with Abner, who manages the lodge and is also the SCUBA dive master. Abner has terrific energy and enthusiasm for diving (and for life) and although conditions on our first dive weren't good due to poor visibility, he...

Over the last 10 years I have have stayed at Al Natural 4 times!! Very relaxing and casual environment. The owner are very nice and fun to be around. Excellent meals and staff! The day excursions are great. Forget wearing shoes and just go barefoot. My next trip to Panama I plan on staying there again.
