We just returned from our visit we spent 3 nights here as our splurge place to stay. From the website and the reviews this place looks fantastic and it is, but the noise from the bar across the bay is terrible. I truly feel bad for the owners of this place, they are wonderful people and we had a great...

Every now and then, you stumble onto that magical place that you never want to leave, and we found it with this place. My husband and I decided to stay at Eclipse de Mar to celebrate our 25 year wedding anniversary. When planning our trip we wanted something that was both romantic with some adventure. Isla Bastimentos was able to...

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...
