Me and my girlfriend stayed for 5 nights at this place. At first glance everything looked great, the place is really beautiful. The only big problem is something they didn't tell us and probably they won't tell you, there are chitras everywhere (a bug similar to a mosquito but smaller). The thing that really bothers me is that we asked...

My new husband and I stayed at Eclypse de Mar for our honeymoon. We had always dreamed of staying in the overwater bungalows of Bora Bora or the Maldives, but finances and time made this unrealistic. Eclypse de Mar is the PERFECT alternative for those looking for that overwater bungalow experience at a fraction of the price! The room was...

We stayed here for one night of luxury on a backpacking holiday. We didn't stay in the villas, there is a couple of standard rooms that are on the jetty and they are also amazing because you have the same view. Free kayaks, nature reserve for a relaxing stroll and dinner with was also amazing. Staff were always so helpful...

We stayed at the Eclypse for our 20th anniversary and couldn't have been happier. These bungalows exceeded our expectations and made our trip memorable. The staff and owners are wonderful....just like family. I can't wait to go back and will definitely stay at Eclypse De Mar!!

We loved staying at the Eclypse de Mar Bungalows. The only problem, we did not stay long enough. The bungalows are so cozy and you sleep so well with the ocean breeze. The breakfast in the morning was plentiful and very delicious. I loved Surli and all the staff in the kitchen. What a wonderful and special place. I can't...

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)...

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...
