This place was amazing!! The bungalows were perfect, the setting was amazing. To cap it off the service was the BEST service we received anywhere. The owners are awesome, super friendly and aim to please. It was very personal service- they set up two different day trips for us and they were with the most respectable and talented captains. They... More

I traveled with my husband to Bocas del Toro for our honeymoon and it was wonderful! It was definitely what we were hoping for. We left from Tampa,Fl and had to make a stop in Houston,TX to get to Panama City. On our way to Panama we did not have to stop and pick up our luggage from one flight... More

We spent two nights here and three nights at the much more expensive Punta Caracol. We enjoyed Eclypse de Mar much more. The water visibility was identical. It really depended on the weather. They lined up two trips for us. They were the same trips as Punta Caracol, but half the cost. Their food was wonderful! The service was great!... More

My husband and I stayed here for five days for our honeymoon. The place is amazing. Cabins on stilts, viewing the fish from the glass table and glass floor. snorkeling right off of our deck. breakfast in bed. I had no complaints, people were friendly, we had our privacy and it was just what we were looking for. I would... More

We just returned from a 6 day vacation at Eclypse de Mar, what an amazing place. We had read the reviews before going but had no idea how good this hotel would be. The owners Malena and Chango are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much for them. The other staff around the hotel are just as friendly and always... More

This hotel is a real gem. Located only 10 minutes 'taxi boat' ride from Bocas Town and you arrive to your private hotel (this is the feeling you get). The owners Malena and Chango are so nice and will do everything for you to be happy. The 4 cabanas in the property are new, elegant, gorgeous and luxuriuos, with a... More

My daughter (10), husband and I spend four blissful days hanging out at Eclypse De Mar. I had no idea that Panama would offer such an amazing vacation. We spend two and a half weeks in Costa Rica and then came to Bocas Del Toro to check it out for 4 days. We crossed the border on foot at Sixola... More

This was our first trip to Panama and we stayed at Eclypse de Mar for two nights. I cannot say enough wonderful things about it! First of all our "room" was really our own private bungalow over the water equipped with glass windows in the floor so we could see the fish swimming below. There was a private bedroom with... More

Read all the reviews before booking. It is a beautiful location and the staff are very friendly. However, the info about the relentless, obnoxious THUMP THUMP of the bass from the music 200 meters away across the water cannot be overstated. It starts at about 9 a.m. and continues until 2 a.m. the following morning. If you want rest and... More

Travel is my passion, but this is the first time I have ever felt compelled to post a hotel review. Exotic, unspoiled, romantic, and unreal are words that describe our experience at Eclypse de Mar, a beautiful new resort in Bocas del Toro. The four thached-roof Tahitian-style bungalows are built over water and the hotel is accessible only by boat.... More
