Our tour-guide at Toucan Travel recommended Hotel Brillasol when we requested overnight accommodations near San Jose Airport. We did not want to be in the city and this was absolutely the perfect choice for us. The hotel shuttle driver met us off our flight and took us back when we requested the following day. The hotel is small, with a... More

The only downside is that the hotel is a bit far from downtown Alajuela. You'll need to take a cab if you want to go into town. However, it is very close to the airport, and the shuttle is free. There is a great seafood restaurant just a short walk away, as well as some small markets, and hamburger stands.... More

My husband and I stayed here one night before leaving Costa Rica. When we asked if we could eat dinner there, they told us the chef was too busy and had a large party to feed. We got our room, only to find the ceilings were covered in killed mosquitos and spiders. Large black ants were crawling all over the... More

I enjoyed this quaint little spot. The trees and nature were great. The staff is really nice and humble. They give you free breakfast and there food is yummy. I came here w my family and we enjoyed every bit. They have a shop and nice eating area and a little office/computer place to handle your business.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times and everytime I leave I say to myself that i will come back. Its location is close to the SJO airport and their free shuttles make things so easy. Guillermo one of the managers and his staff are very friendly and will attend to your every need. Their restaurant is delicious... More

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... More

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... More
