Stayed for four nights but wished we could have stayed longer. Perfect location right on the beach. You can't get closer to the sea without being in it! Staff were friendly and helpful and the apartment was clean and comfortable with glorious views. We would come back in a heartbeat.

Located right on the beach and village is right in the corner. Views are amazing. Best location absolutely! In the resort there is three buildings where different rooms are. Only the cheapest rooms I think there is no sea view. Room is spacious. Full kitchen, clean bathroom. Big terazza with sunbeds. Tip: Book direct to Ancle, dont via booking sites.

We loved our stay last February 2016 and the apartment had great views over Castara beach and the basking rays below our balcony. Castara is a laid back, uncommercialised fishing village and we hope it remains so. The Naturalist Beach is a laid back 'resort' comprising several apartments at one end of the beach. This was our 2nd visit and...

We started our Tobago holiday with a week at this resort - what a start. We stayed in Blue Marlin apartment and had two huge balconies right on the beach . The views were amazing and we would happily sit watching the sea, fishermen, birds and views for hours. Although the apartment is not luxury ,it has every thing you...

We stayed 5 days at the Naturalist and lavished each of them. The Grouper room was a jump away from the water, with a deck to relax on during the day, Ancle George and his crew were excellent, helping and welcoming. So anytime again!!

We stayed here for 4 nights in February and it was wonderful. The apartment was clean, bright and airy and well equipped. We had a wonderful view over the charming beach with fantastic sunsets. The staff - particularly Ancle -were very helpful and breakfast was great with spicy salad, fried plantain, fried fish and coconut bread (all yum!) or cereal...

Each trip we catch up with many regular guests who...

A couple of views of Castara Bay in front of the Naturalist Beach Resort. Ideal for snorkeling, the gentle rolling waves were music to our ears. Suites from US$60 to US$250 per night, and right on the beach could be one of the best value resorts in Tobago!

I have just read a recent review by dsan2, wherein he/she complains about the attitude and lack of availability of the owner and staff. As a repeat visitor to The Naturalist, I must say that these comments puzzle me. My husband and I have been to this little hotel many times -- our 11th visit is coming up in less...

Crow's Nest is a very small room with a nice sized, private veranda. We had an excellent visit in Castara, staying at the Naturalist. We could hear the ocean at night, could see it from our window next to the bed, and saw a million birds in the trees outside our windows, including a Little Blue Heron & a Yellow...
