This was our second trip to Tobago and our second stay at the Naturalist. Ancle is above and beyond accommodating and made us feel like family. My fiance and I loved it so much on our first trip that we decided to get married there! The Naturalist is the only hotel in Castara that is truly right on the beach, no matter what other hotels claim.
Ancle made all the arrangements for us and went out of his way to make our wedding special and beautiful. All of our family loved their accommodations and Ancle is constantly working on upgrades and improvements.
Castara is a small village, but they have all the basics so you can get what you need to make your own meals or you can opt to eat out. If you're thinking of visiting Tobago for a relaxing time, stay at the Naturalist in Castara Bay. You will not be disappointed!!

We stayed at The Naturalist for 6 days and were not ready to leave. Ancle and his staff are wonderful. Our family had the entire resort booked for a wedding. It was the perfect place for a wedding. Ancle made everything so enjoyable and took care of all of us with ease. The rooms are all very nice and comfortable. We were in Dolphin and had a beautiful view of the beach. The rooms have well equipped kitchens and the local stores have basic food items. The rooms were cleaned each day by a very friendly and helpful staff. If you are looking for a relaxing place to vacation this is it. The beach is great, sunsets beautiful and snorkeling right out from the resort was fantastic. A waterfall you can swim in is just a short walk away along with several restaurants.

We love the Naturalist! It is the perfect place to unplug and relax. We stayed here during my sister's wedding -- which was also held at The Naturalist. The owner was very accommodating! The rooms are comfortable, and I loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the waves just outside my window. (We stayed in The Grouper.)
The beach is beautiful, and the sunsets are amazing. We also found the people of Castara to be very friendly and welcoming.
I hope to visit Tobago again soon -- we will DEFINITELY stay at The Naturalist!

Went for a Wedding, oh my what a beautiful place. Very friendly and clean, the rooms were great. The owner is a very gracious man. The people of the Island are wonderful. Fresh fish served daily in the restaurants, what ever was caught that morning. The beaches/water/snorkeling are great. I would love to go again and will suggest people to go and experience the Naturalist and the Island of Tobago.

We enjoyed our stay, the beach at Castara is as beautiful as they come and you can't stay much closer. Ancle and his staff are very accommodating, we were impressed with his willingness to help and go out of his way without complaint.
We stayed in the Bonito, as with the other downstairs units it is a bit dark and doesn't have a patio or deck but aside from that it is fine, it has plenty of room and the kitchen is decently equipped. We were there with our two pre-teen boys and the resort is definitely family friendly.
