The entire property was a beautiful experience. Everything one needs for the stay is located within the gated area. It is well kept with lovely grounds, some interesting animals, and even a waterfall that pours into the pool. Be aware that not all rooms have air-conditioning, but even that is not a problem. The serene atmosphere is a perfect way...

Hello, what a lovely comment, thank you so much for your review. He still improving our service in Brillasol. Now we have 7 rooms with AC and we hope that all the 15 rooms will have it on December. We want to create an Unique place in Alajuela, with gardens, animals, nature and peace like a mini Oasis. Hope to...

- clean and intact room and bathroom - comfortable beds - friendly staff - shuttle from the hotel to the airport and vice versa - simple but good breakfast buffet (pinto, fruit, cereal, bread, juice & coffee...) - peaceful, well-kept green area (even with some animals) - really close to Juan Santamaria Airport (-> can be noisy at night)

We had flight delays, which effected our entire travel plans, so we had to stay in SJO for the night. We were renting a car from Alamo and the service rep suggested we stay at Brilla Sol. He said we could stay at a commercial hotel, such as Marriott or Holiday Inn, but this was great price, great people and...

This hotel looks great in photos, and is pretty cute when you arrive...that's basically where the charm ended for me. Many people seem to like this place for its free airport shuttle, location, and fair price. I wasn't in need of airport services, so here is an honest review without regards to that. There was no hot water or water...

Got in later at night. The guy waiting at the airport asked for a tip even though all he did was stand there and wait for us. While driving to the hotel seemed to be in a bad part of town. But once you pass the gates it's absolutely gorgeous inside the hotel area. In the morning the tour company...

Picked it because it was close to the airport and with a shuttle. They also had food, pool, and okay prices. The food was okay but we had to pay extra for the second shuttle (two different departure times) no wifi in the rooms and no a/c. So we had to leave the windows open meaning loud voices and music...

This Hotel was just the perfect place to stay when I came to Costa Rica with a friend. It is located very close to the airport and the staff is super kind. What I liked the most was the delicious Costa Rican breakfast and the swimming pool, where you could relax after a long flight. The most special thing for...

Basic room which is reasonably priced. No air conditioning which can be pretty hot. noise level takes some getting used to besides the occasional airplanes which are expected, the motorcycles from the streets as well as the dog fights can keep you awake. Restaurant merits 4 stars and the service was good.

Since Monteverde is a few hours from San Jose, we decided to come into town to stay the night before flying out. After a recommendation from a friend to stay in Alajuela and then reviewing Trip Advisor, I settled on Hotel Brilla Sol. I wanted somewhere close to the airport with free wifi, breakfast, and a shuttle to the airport...

We didn't get to the hotel until about 1:30am and they woke up to check us in. We were shown our room. There is no A/C but the weather was ok so it wasn't needed, we just used the fan and opened the window. Room was so-so but was the right price and included breakfast which was decent. Was typical...
