Before traveling to Panama, I read review after review of places to stay.
I was traveling with my boyfriend over the holidays and I wanted a plaec to stay that was relaxing, luxurious, but not too expensive.
Eclypse De Mar was the perfect (and I mean perfect place)!
Malena, the owner was the most customer-friendly owner I've ever met. It is a family-run business, and they have customer service down pact.
As far as the bungalows, they were the coolest alternative to staying in a hotel that I've ever done. Every morning, breakfast was delivered to the bungalow at whatever time you specified the night before. This allowed us to wake up when we wanted, eat our breakfast and have our coffee on the deck of our bungalow while we took breaks to jump in the ocean to have a refreshing wake-up moment.
There is wifi in the main area/communal area of the hotel.
While we stayed at Eclypse de Mar, we were surrounded by other young couples and young singles that we would hook up with to go do day trips to different beaches, go snorkeling, and/or go out on the town on the main island of Bocas town.
Cons: The only con we experienced was the loud music. There is a bar accross the water that plays its music extremely loud until all hours of the night. To be fair, it was Christmas time, so I heard that the loud music was a result of this.
If we were to go back to Bocas de Toro, I would without a doubt stay at Eclypse de Mar. It was awesome!
