Waking up and being able to jump into the warm Caribbean waters or relaxing on the deck is definitely a treat. Anyone who's lucky enough to find this little gem is well, lucky enough! The gal that runs the place was super nice and we enjoyed the breakfasts every morning. If they have it, try the lobster for dinner it... More

We had two 25-30yr old couples staying in 1 bungalow and LOVED it! Things I didn't need: toilet paper (another review says they "ration" it, but it's merely dispensed in sheets not a roll). Things I should have brought: shampoo and conditioner. Guess most of Central America doesn't provide. We loved laying on our terrace and swimming each afternoon. It... More

We, family of five, spent christmas here. We had a two room house on stilts sitting in the water with a private little terrace. The kids shared the second bedroom and it was tight but they did not complain! (9, 11 and 13) The family hotel is very personal and well run by its Argentine owner couple. They abide by... More

This is a really well cared for property. The staff were incredibly nice and ensured we felt right at home. The place is spotless and the grounds are beautiful. The location is really cool- just quiet enough but not too far off the beaten path. We had a spectacular time here. I can't say enough how nice the rooms are.... More

A lovely eco village to spend some days in. It is perfectly situated with bungalows built on a pier over the sea The atmosphere is very friendly and the staff was very helpful in arranging all kinds of activities and transport at our request. There is wi-fi in the main building. We will definitely stay here again if we ever... More

Eclypse de Mar is fabolous and we loved our stay. The owners and the straff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed three nights in one of the rooms in the house. The rooms are rather small but beatifully decorated with dark wood materials, comfy bed and have a private veranda outside. The breakfast is great, don't miss out on... More

I have been emailing the owners of this property constantly to get one response out of several emails. Email is the only way to contact them to find out about availability. The service is extremely poor. I asked for 4 nights accommodation over the Christmas period to which I got no response. After 2 more emails i finally got a... More

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...
