We had the best time at Eclypse de Mar. Staying in the honeymoon bungalow was without a doubt the highlight of our trip to Panama. The bungalow is beautiful and luxurious, and we loved swimming right off our deck, and having the outdoor shower to rinse the salt-water off afterward. We loved lounging in the sun chairs and the hammock, honestly we would have been content just hanging out and swimming all day at our bungalow. But there is so much to do and to see in Bocas!
I can't say enough amazing things about Malena and the staff at Eclypse de Mar. Everyone was so great, and took great care of us, especially when it came to food! I cannot eat gluten, but didn't tell Malena in advance (I didn't want to be a bother), and on day 1, she went out of her way to find me gluten free sweet bread for the morning breakfast, and gluten free pasta for dinner. It was so thoughtful and made me feel very cared for! We ate breakfast every morning in the restaurant, and had amazing tropical fruit salad each day. Scrambled eggs, toast for my husband, and great coffee, and and amazing view, it was heaven. We couldn't get enough of the fruit, and ordered fruit smoothies every afternoon as well.
The staff also had all sorts of recommendations for us each day on different activities and beaches we could visit. They took care of calling their connections and arranging island tours for us, so we didn't have to worry about how to get places or who was the best person for a tour or surf lesson, etc. It was very reassuring, and made it very easier for travelers like us--who were on the "no plan plan" and had figured out nothing in advance!
The staff was so accommodating to us. I also can't disagree more with any negative comments by others, we had a fabulous experience, and felt so sad to leave! We truly hope to be able to return one day soon!
