We truly enjoyed Eclypse de Mar. The honeymoon bungalow was beautiful and their private rainforest was beautiful and provided endless exploring. The only reason I'm giving it one less star was that we were unclear on some things that would have been great to know BEFORE arriving. First of all, take the water taxi from Bocas Town directly to the... More

We planned our trip to Panama during a blizzard in January. We spotted the bungalows at Eclypse de Mar and were enchanted. We knew we wanted to stay there during our March trip. We had high expectations and these were met and more. The accommodations were absolutely beautiful, clean and inviting. The staff was so attentive and did everything in... More

My wife and I discovered Eclipse de Mar a few years ago just through a random search of the internet, and were absolutely stunned by its charm, beauty, location, super friendly & attentive staff, and the overall sense of true relaxation....so much so, that we extended our stay that year from 2 nights to 5 nights, and returned again this...

Beautiful, clean, wonderful staff, good food and drinks, excellent service. We stayed one week at Eclypse de Mar, and I wish we stayed longer, unforgettable trip. If you love music, great authentic food, friendly people, Bastimentos is the place to go, and Eclypse de Mar is the place to stay at.

Incredible stay on the quaint Carribbean Island of Bastimentos at the amazing Eclypse de Mar. This place truly has it all with the right amount of everything - you can relax the whole time, adventure the whole time, or find your unique combination of the two. We flew directly into Bocas from San Jose, Costa Rica - a smooth, short... More

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
