My wife and I stayed at Eclypse de Mar for our honeymoon and it was exactly what we were looking for. The whole hotel had way of being simple and rustic (no electricity 9am-6pm), while having all the comforts and amenities we needed. Our bungalow was impeccably clean, totally comfortable, and beautiful in a very natural way. We also noticed...

First and foremost, I want to thank Malena and her staff for all the excellent service. We had a wonderful time. The location, the views, the ocean, the people makes this a real vacation, where you can take in and savour the culture, and if you are willing and lucky enough, take part of it. We went to dinner in...

To begin with: the bungalows are beautifull and the service is great. But : - the loud music across the bay is terrible. - there is no beach; you need watertaxis to go elsewhere. You're kind of stuck in the place. - the standard room is too small and has no privacy. - the price/value combination is bad. The prices...

Unfortunately, Elclypse de Mar has a noise problem. The night we were there- as well as on other nights we were told by other guests-- a bar in nearby Bastimentos Town blasted music. The sound travels across the water. The owners have desperately tried to stop this, appealing to the Panamanian Government, but so far no luck. We had hoped...

Acqua Lodge:
As we are located on a natural resource, we maintain the same philosophy, providing the bungalows and the main house with resources that nature gives us. The Lodge was built totally over the water. Electricity is through solar panels (located on top of the Restaurant roof), whereas the fresh filtered water is from a natural spring located inside...

The couple that run this place may be very nice but my experience was a living hell. We arrived on the afternoon of Christmas Eve and there was some very lively music playing from the little town nearby and at that time, when I asked how long the music stayed on, I was told around midnight. At that time I...

We want to clarify some points. It is very important for us to give the correct information about where we are located and what we have around us. Our Lodge is located in the bay of Bastimentos and close to beautiful reefs. This is a beautiful island with pristine beaches and jungles, and a beautiful local village (afro-caribbean people).

I own a small INN in NYC and i have to say that Eclypse Del Mar has done an amazing job!!!
