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). An...

I own a small INN in NYC and i have to say that Eclypse Del Mar has done an amazing job!!! To build a gorgeous little bungalow, with tiled bathrooms, 2 viewing ports on the floor, an elegant canopy bed and an outdoor patio .... all 500 ft from shore is amazing!

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...

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!...

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.
