My wife & I have stayed at Brilla Sol many times over the past 15 yrs: Excellent van service to & from the airport. A good breakfast is included. Dinners are reasonably priced & tasty. Recommended if you have a late arrival into, or morning flight out of CR.

We stayed at Hotel Brilla Sol in March 2014 for 2 visits of about 4 nights in total. We chose the Hotel for its convenience to the San Jose airport and for the good reviews. Even though the Hotel was a little bit off the "beaten track" I felt safe there. My husband and I walked up the road to... More

I have been traveling to Costa Rica for over 15 years. I began staying at Brilla Sol 15 years ago and met Luis and Flor at that time. I stay at Brilla Sol when I fly in to Costa Rica and when I fly out of Costa Rica. I found it to be very comfy and tranquil and the typical... More

I would love to go back! This place was so pretty and the service was very welcoming. I would recommend staying here to anyone planning a trip and will be in this area. The room was perfect and they allowed for late check in which was super helpful in our situation.

The only downside is that it is not convenient to town. There is a little bar up the hill and a seafood restaurant a short walk away, but not much around to see. It is convenient for the airport. the pool is nice, the rooms are clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

I would stay here again. Once inside the gates, an oasis. Great service, great food, very relaxing. The neighborhood is nothing special, but seems very safe. Bring some bug spray and be prepared for the jets landing early at the nearby airport.

For more than fifteen years I have stayed at the Hotel Brilla Sol, a comfortable, small hotel within a short drive of San Juantamaria airport, the large international airport serving San Jose. It is particularly convenient if you are needing a place for only one night before traveling on. Upon arrival at the airport, a small van picks me up... More

This hotel is very convenient if you want to be close to the airport. A perfect place to start and end your trip. I have stayed there several times. I have my rental car delivered to me at the hotel after enjoying the wonderful free breakfast. The free shuttle is a plus. When you exit customs and are greeted by... More

Great staff, friendly and awesome breakfast. Quick and easy airport transfer included. The grounds are beautiful but area is noisy so maybe earplugs to sleep. Some rooms have four beds to accommodate a family.
