We spent the bulk of our honeymoon (5 nights) in our very own Cabin on the Water at Eclypse De Mar.
This was by far the most romantic place we've ever stayed. The view from the private cabins is gorgeous-- you can see Old Bank (close enough, without being too close!), the rain forested Isla Solarte, the mangroves, the beautiful mountains on the mainland, and of course the crystal clear water.
Sitting on our private deck, enjoying the complimentary breakfast & coffee (Or takeout from Roots!), enjoying floating around in the Caribbean was really an unbeatable experience.
Even in the "Standard Bungalows" you get a beautiful, canopied, King Sized bed along with two twin sized beds in a separate room that serve as a nice sitting area if and when it rains. Use of kayaks is complimentary, and we took advantage of the opportunity to paddle through the nearby mangroves-- a beautiful experience.
The owners maintain a beautiful private reserve/garden area, well worth a hike to get the panoramic view from the top of the hill. The friendly, enthusiastic staff will call a boat for you whenever you need it to take you to town ($1 to Old Bank, more to Bocas) and will keep in touch with you about tour opportunities.
The complimentary welcome cocktails were a treat, as was the surprise champagne they gave us to celebrate our honeymoon!
All of this, combined with the beauty and charm of the town and island of Bastimentos made Eclypse De Mar an absolutely perfect experience. If you are thinking about a romantic vacation in Bocas, there is no better option!
