This review is loooong over due. We stayed in August 2013. I was on the tail end of a medical brigade and wanted an escape and retreat. We weren't so into the scene in Bocas town (lotsa youngins looking for other available youngins) but we did go into to Bocas town most days for a meal or drinks. Eclypse Del... More

My perfect little island villa with an aquatic lifestyle. If you love the ocean and marine life this place will enchant you. The living room table is open to the ocean below and lights up at night so you can feed the fish and enjoy the company of the geckos. The bed was luxurious,one of the nicest I have ever... More

We stayed at Eclypse del Mar July 12&13 and words cannot describe how amazing our time was here. To start off the bungalows look like they belong in the Maldives. They are stunning and impeccable. We were greeted by the owner Malena and she offered us two complimentary beers. We were then escorted to our bungalow and I jumped with... More

We stayed in the honeymoon cottage in March 2014. Other reviews describe the excellent property quite well. The six polished wood units are modern, stylish and comfortable with a great bed. Each unit had a semi-private patio for sun lounging and stairs to enter the water. The units are air conditioned. We fed numerous fish under our room through a... More

We planned our trip to Panama around our stay at the Eclypse -- proved to be a great strategy. The bungalows are only outdone by the amazing staff at the property. Everyone was incredibly friendly and they were always ready to help with activities etc. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff made a cake for us -- extra... More

For the most amazing vacation, this is the place to go. Imaculate, spacious bungalows over the water, with private porch and all the amenities you would need. Incredibly, attentive staff, always willing to accommodate, and share daily suggestions and arrangements to insure the experience is the best it can be! Right on a spectacular nature preserve, hosting gorgeous flowers and... More

This is a wonderful place. The bungalow over the water were fantastic, They were clean and luxurious. The owners and staff were attentive in every way. The service and the food were perfect. The owners recommend and organise day-trip, fitting perfectly with our wishes and expectations. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Fortunately, Panama is only 30 minutes... More

We loved the huts on the water. The rooms were nice, the deck and the view was lovely and it is fun to swim right off your room. We wanted to love this place, it's so picturesque but the experience was marred by a very loud bar playing dance music until late at night every night. This bar is across... More

If you ever dreamed about staying in an over the water bungalow, Eclyspe de Mar in Bocas del Toro is the place.There are 6 beautifully furnished bungalows that are so comfortable you just may not want to leave. We were there for 3 nights and easily could have stayed longer if we had the time. There is so much to... More

We stayed here for 4 days, 3 nights as a large group (2 families, 10 people total) toward the end of our Panama spring break vacation last week. After a lengthy and most interesting journey to get there (4hr bus trip from Boquete including getting stuck for hours in some local political protest in the middle of the jungle with... More
