Stayed here one night before and one night after Costa Rica tour. Rooms are clean and TV has lots of channels. The restaurant is well priced (8$ mains) and the food is fresh and good. The hotel will take care of all transports you need also in minutes notice. The location is near airport and feels safe behind a gate.

Our cab driver recommended this place and we were very pleased. The place is very nice, close to the airport and has nice grounds. What we want to share is the great staff. Just as we arrived at the hotel from another part of the country, my wife fell quite ill with 'traveler's sickness'. The staff was so very helpful...

My family and I stayed at Hotel Brilla Sol in June the night before heading back to the U.S., and we found it to be very charming, secure and comfortable. The restaurant served us a delicious, custom-made meal. The shuttle to the airport was reliable and quick. I recommend this place on your way into or out of Costa Rica.

I stayed here several years ago and returned on this last visit. It's about 5 minutes from the airport by free shuttle, so traffic jams aren't a problem. It has a lovely garden and pool area to relax by if you have a later flight. The breakfast (included) offers eggs, plantains, cereals, bread, fruits and beverages. The rooms are large...

We have always found it to be a pleasant place to stay for a night. The people are helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean and adequate, the food is simple,...

What a great bunch of folks at Brill Sol. Friendly, clean rooms and great food. I just visited again in March 2013 and this was my second visit. I can't say enough about the pleasant atmosphere and great food. I hope one day they will finish their pool area and get it ship shape, but otherwise this is a great...

The day before I was due to arrive in San Jose, I received an email from Brilla Sol that the room I reserved was no longer available. They had a very large university group come in as a class and I suspect my room was given to them. They offered me a "cabina" instead, saying it had no A/C or...

Afordable, dependable, comfy hotel near airport. We've been 4 times to Costa Rica throught San Jose airport and always stayed there. In fact, we were there 3 times before and this time didn't need a hotel near the airport since our flight was so early; we could reach our final destination in one day (Manuel Antonio). But because of bad...
