Checked into this hotel based on glowing reviews and was shocked to see the pool was covered with a film of scum and yellow caution tape. I pointed this out to the manager and she said, "the pool is fine, that is just leaves falling from the trees". In addition there was a river runoff into part of the beach...

We live in San Jose and anytime we have guests we have brought them to Canciones del Mar. At least 8 visits in 3 years. I am afraid that it is no longer the quaint little hotel we had come to love, especially after our last two visits. Most recently, there was a bachelorette party Friday night with loud music...

The have a teenager working the front desk which gives horrible customer service, the rooms are old, the ac barely works, the towels are old and super stiff, and the breakfast is limited and not very good at all!

We stayed at the Canciones del Mar for 6 nights in May 2009, and had a great experience. The hotel is in a good location - right on the beach and a few minutes walk from the main drag in Jaco. We stayed in two rooms: #9 and #15 - both of which were two-room suites. Each had two baths,...

I have stayed at Canciones del Mar three to four times in the past 4 years. I love this place! It is not the pampered, luxury in seclusion rather it is a safe, fun place right on the beach. I love being able to stash your stuff and run right to the beach, hanout in the tree house, or lay...

5 years ago this place was probably wonderful...but time is showing. Jaco is not the safe little get-away that is described. The "rustic lane" that leads from the hotel to town is a dank alley that I would not recommend walking at night. The beachfront is rocky and full of trash. There was a homeless man sitting on the hotel...

Ok, heres what you want to know: The hotel is on the beach, which is beautiful. Breakfast included-yummy. Nightlife starts late, but is worth it. As far as crime goes, just keep your eyes open and dont let people sweet talk you to anything. Our room was big and clean, with kitchen and huge balcony. Jaco was really a pit-stop....

Las Canciones Del Mar is a great hotel right on the beach in Jacó. It is about 100 metersyards from the street and it gets you just far away enough from all the other tourists to make you feel like you are at your own beach. The hotel staff was very nice and courteous. The guy at the front desk...

Jan 21 - Jan 25 2008 Let me start off by saying that we really enjoyed our stay in Jaco. We plan on coming back in July, but due to how our situation was handled at Canciones Del Mar, we will probably be staying somewhere else. At least until ALL the construction is done and all the bugs are worked...

Great Location. Hotel right on the beach and located near the strip of shops and restraunts, so you can walk there. A little hard to find initially (at the end of Calle Bri Bri but street signs are very hard to see or find in Costa Rica) Very helpful staff. They will make arrangement for many activities or give you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This small 15-room hotel is a classic! The sea, the surf, the beach, the palm grove, the hotel-it is just as you might imagine a small unique tropical beachfront resort should be. The “Songs of the sea” is a quiet and cool oasis amidst the busy Jaco town scene, with each room’s small deck looking out over the ocean or on the lush gardens surrounding the pool. The hotel is built in Tropical Spanish Colonial style and the fully equipped rooms are spacious and quiet. It is the one place in Playa Jaco that combines the convenience of central location with beachfront location. Wake up to a delicious fresh fruit and buffet breakfast under the thatched roof of the beach side restaurant, then wander down to the beach for some sun and surf. If it gets too hot, retreat and cool off by the pool and Jacuzzi or catch up on your reading in the breezy elevated thatched roof tree house while you enjoy the view below. We have a small gourmet restaurant for lunch and dinner, and our Costa Rican chef serves international gourmet and or local food. Also enjoy our Tapas Bar terrace and Jacuzzi on the third floor with a spectacular view over the ocean and green mountains where you can enjoy the spectacular sunsets of the Pacific Ocean. We also do weddings and special events. We are committed with national sustainability programs and protecting the environment. ... more   less
