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...

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
