This was our first stop in the Bocas,after a rainy boat ride arrived on the dock to a lovely welcome drink. We were shown to our cabin which had plenty of room and a sitting area . The deck had relaxing views and though we were warned that it could get noisy at night it never really did. Restaurant was... More

This resort really is lovely, with the over-water bungalows being spacious and airy. The adjacent nature reserve provided a great spot for a daily walk. We spotted red frogs, caymen, and sloths, as well as many tropical butterflies, birds and plants. Kayaks are available for a paddle around the cove. Breakfasts were good, with plenty of excellent coffee, although the... More

I feel bad rating Eclypse a 3 out of 5. The bungalows were adorable, comfortable and clean. They would rate a 5. The owners and staff were always helpful and smiling. They would also rate a 5. We had great dinners and would rate them a 5. Still, Eclypse de Mar gets 3 stars rather than 4 or 5. During... More

The over water bungalows are so great. And more spacious than expected. The "back yard" is a nature preserve with caimans, sloths, birds and frogs. The biggest downside is theres no beach. But who cares when the stairs from your room lead right into the sea?

If you are looking for the paradise just go there! Great bungalows with a floor ocean window and possibility to feed fishes from there. Very profesional and helpful and friendly staff. Very tasty food, you can't miss special of the day - lobster! Just everything has been perfect! Lovely place!

These overwater bungalows (7 in total) are situated so beautifully on Bastimentos Island. Our bungalow was spacious and comfortable. The entire staff went above and beyond in responding to every request we had. As is the case throughout Bocas del Toro, you will be taking a water taxi from Bocas Town to arrive at this wonderful destination. Breakfast was great,... More

From the moment we arrived we were greeted by the hostess with a beautiful refreshing drink. The entire duration of our stay was exceptional. The room was beyond what we imagined (we had the honeymoon bungalow). The breakfast in the bungalow, the amazing dinners in the restaurant. The owner and staff made you feel like you were home. It was... More

Spent 2 nights with 3 youngsters, who enjoyed having a bungalow to their own. Owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and will try to do everything to support an enjoyable vacation. Despite some rainy weather, we managed to do different activities in the area. It is only a shame that most villagers don't seem to be very concerned... More

Quite expensive but worth every penny. Beautiful rooms, stunning location, perfect hosts. Mostly tranquil except for the reggaeton which sometimes blasts its way across the bay from Old Bank. The absence of electricity until 6:30 should be an inconvenience but it makes you appreciate your environment even more. The private nature reserve on shore is perfect for a morning sloth... More

Serenity. We stayed in the honeymoon suite with walkout access to the sea, portholes to watch marine life, bedroom access to the deck that also faced the sunset and the main town on Bastimentos, as well as the main waterway across to Isla Colon, the main island of Bocas de Toro. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and very... More
