This hotel came recommended by friends who have stayed there many times. We really enjoyed out stay, albeit brief. We were picked up promptly from the International airport in San Jose. The hotel is set inside a beautiful tropical garden and the rooms were adequate and clean. We just had two brief overnight stops when we arrived and again when... More

Stayed at this hotel for 9 days for a religious retreat. The staff was very hospitable and accommodating, the rooms were clean and the food was VERY delicious! it's like paradise in the middle of the city. It is close from the airport so you do hear the planes all the time as others have said but it is not... More

stayed with my wife on arrival in costa rica. We arrived at the hotel one day later than planned, due to terrible delay in flights. However this was no problem at all. Alll in all, brilasol is a great spot if you come of the plane after a long journey. It was our first base for a nice trip through... More

We travel to San Jose about 3 times a year and we have stayed at this great little Hotel many times. There have been lots of Improvements over the years and yet the value can't be beat. The staff are always so helpful & accommodating . They are only 5 minutes from the airport and they have a free shuttle.... More

Hotel Brilla Sol is a great place to stopover on the way to and from San Jose airport. The free hotel shuttle was there waiting for us, even after our flight had been delayed for about an hour. The rooms are fairly spacious and very clean (not an insect in sight which for Costa Rica is pretty amazing), but do... More

I stayed with my family for our first night in Costa Rica. The service is excellent and friendly. The food was delicious, they had vegetarian options for us :). Our stay was very cozy and comfortable. However, one member of our party (who is a bit on the pampered side) was a bit uncomfortable in the rooms, they were a... More

I have stayed here three times now, and it still remains a good choice. Pros - Airport shuttle for free. Free Breakfast. Basic but clean rooms. Friendly and helpful service. Close to the airport. Feels safe. Cons - Some rooms need some updating. Beds are hit and miss as far as comfort. Close to the airport comes with a price,... More

If you're looking for a quaint, inn-like quality place to rest easy and refuel on a leg of your journey through Central America, this is your place. The staff is friendly, easy going and efficient. The grounds are safely enclosed by a gate and filled with beautiful trees and plants with a little pool tucked away. The food was pretty... More
