This is the perfect place. The location, the style, the philosophy... It is an ecological hotel, with sun powered equipment and water heater. No TV or A/C but very fresh, not even electricity during the day time, nothing else to do but enjoy the ocean breeze and the blue waters and feed the fish from insede the bungalow...

Top notch facility with a fantastic location, unlike most tropical resorts. Outstanding staff, exceptional service and awesome home cooked food. Highly recommended as one of the very best we have been to in our extensive travels. Go there!

We snagged one night at this bungalow with a change in plans. Are we glad we did!! We arrived a little early by water taxi and were greeted by the owner. Because our bungalow wasn't quite ready she offered us free drinks and to relax in the outdoor restaurant. We soon were kayaking out in the ocean (free for guests)... More

First impressions of Bocas del Toro are not great. It's a loud, party town full of kids in their early 20's and the town is geared toward them. That's not a complaint, just an observation. On the other hand you have Eclypse de Mar Acqua Lodge. It's a world away from Bocas but close enough to reach easily. We upgraded... More

This hotel is almost beyond words. The hotel meets expectations and is exactly like the pictures. Taking the boat from Isla Colon to Bastimentos and seeing our lodging sitting over the water was gorgeous. The hotel, food, and drinks were all affordable and the staff was so friendly. There is also a beautiful walk behind the hotel with great views... More

I was lucky enough to spend four nights at this beautiful place. After reading so many great reviews, I came in with very high expectations. They were all exceeded. We stayed in one of the over water bungalows (#4) and loved everything about it. Each bungalow is private with its own deck and sea access. There is a reef about... More

Let me start off by saying that I truly will never forget this place in my life. My wife and I were looking to stay in Panama for a few days after spending some time in Puerto viejo. We searched for some places online in our hostel in Costa Rica. We came across Eclypse de mar. From the photos and... More

One of our lifetime dreams was to stay in an overwater bungalow. Coming from Arizona, it always seemed like an impossible dream. We were under the impression that overwater bungalows were far away in places like the French Polynesia, and very expensive. Guess what, Eclypse de Mar, on Isla Bastimentos in Panama, made or dream come true. A lot closer... More

We stayed in Bungalo #3 which we really enjoyed. We liked being on that side of the water as it avoided all of the water taxi's coming in and out. The rooms are very clean and there are 2 spots to view the water beneath you within the room! We had so much fun hanging out on the deck and... More
