“Clean, affordable place to stay near the airport!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2010

I stayed here the day I arrived and before I left CR. The shuttle service is great, staff are very friendly and courteous, rooms are clean and adequate, and the breakfast is hearty and delicious. It is not super fancy but for the convenience and cleanliness, this is the place to stay near the airport.

I missed my flight from SJ to NY and the airport staff recommended Hotel Brilla Sol. A hotel bus picked us up from the airport, helped us contact the airlines to rebook a flight, helped us find a take out place for dinner. The staff couldn't have been any nicer and more helpful! We used their internet and phone for long periods of time and they were totally accommadating. I was traveling with my 2 year old daughter and even her tantrums couldn't rattle the staff.
I would highly recommend this hotel if you need a place to stay before or after a flight.

Very cute hotel, clean rooms, internet and cable, swimming pool
Great staff very friendly and accommodating :-)
Great food!
The only downfall is the occasional airplane noise, but definitely worth the stay!

We stayed here for one night only because we started a Caravan tour the next morning. We came in a day early and just wanted somewhere safe and cheap to stay for the night. The airport transfers were included and breakfast was also included all for $70 US cash. The location isn't in the best of places but they have barbed wire fencing around the complex (quite common in Costa Rica) The employees are very helpful and friendly. The rooms could be in better shape but for one night it was okay, just okay though.

For a hotel that is so close to the airport, you feel like you are in another part of Costa Rica with nice gardens and a secluded setting. Although the planes do make noise (get some earplugs!), that is expected being only 5 minutes away from the airport. It is very nice to get off the plane and, within minutes, be at a nice hotel with a very nice breakfast. It is a great one-night stay when you arrive late or leave early. They are always waiting for us at the airport, with little or no wait.

I have regularly stayed at this hotel since moving to Costa Rica in Jan 2004. Owned and operated by a local & Peruvian family, its service is both personal and efficient. While Brilla Sol is an ideal spot for incoming and outgoing tourists, I often use it as my base when running errands in San Jose. My favorite aspects - besides the hospitality - are the peaceful grounds, the delicious food, and the proximity to the airport. I especially love the quiet morningsover breakfast with butterflies and birds around. That and the superb home-made yogurt! It reminds me of what I enjoyed in Turkey. The hotel recently added wireless internet in the common areas - a big plus for me. The rooms are simple yet comfortable. The staff is very accommodating and always make me feel welcome.

I have stayed here more than a few times. We were looking for a nice, small not-too-fancy place to spend a night or two when going in and out of the country. Having the hotel be close to the airport was important. The place is good, but the people who run it make it even better. Their resident chef makes some amazing food, and went out of the way every time to make it a great meal for us. We had two dogs with us and they loved the place too. They also have a cool gift shop where I was able to get some last minute items.
