The building is unique, rooms are cleaned but tired, stoves kitchen all utensils, older but will do the job, linens, beds towels need improvements or fresh scent at least. All personnel are friendly but all are constantly using cell phones while at their post, makes it hard to get service when you have to wait for front desk and restaurant... More

First off, I am starting to get frustrated with some of the reviewers on this site. They sound like spoiled/ignorant Americans that believe their entitled to everything. The guy who titled the place "terrible", should go live in a cave somewhere, because nothing will make him happy. Ok, now that i got my rant over, let me tell you about... More

We looked at a few spots in Jaco before finding this gem and we are definitely glad we found it. Canciones del mar in the rainy season was 107 u.s. for a two bedroom Room over looking the pool. It had a great balcony attached to the room which is perfect for having a few drinks with friends before going... More

I recently stayed at this resort and was very impressed with the entire experience. The service was great, we got to check in at 1:00 when we arrived, the room was spacious and loved the balcony! I was so impressed when I arrived and was shown directly to my room which was already nice and cool because they had turned... More

Good Hotel located right on the beach and has a decent sized pool where you can enjoy with your group or hang around with a drink from the bar. They have a little bar right next to the pool. Rooms are a very good size and have a kitchenette (not the best but decent enough) /living area and the bedroom... More

The other review where the guy says the pictures are deceiving I cannot emphasize how true that is. The place is really run down, by the old pictures you can tell it was nice at one time but now it looks like its on the verge of shutting down.. rooms are a little dirty, the thing that bothered me the...

This is a funny place. Absolutely love it. It is a quaint "family hotel" right on the beach. The setting could not be beat. It is obvious from the reviews that they have redone the entire place and looks great! Next door is the "Copacabana" one of those hotels that provides Ladies of the evening for the middle aged, mid... More

We stayed in Jaco for 3 nights before moving to another area hotel for my sister's wedding. My fiance and I wanted a King bed so we got the Honeymoon suite for a very reasonable price. The location was good and central to several good restaurants and a grocery store. Both room's balconies on the third floor connect to one... More

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
