Brilla Sol is located in the very vicinity of the San José airport. The Maps.me navigator app was not able to find the rather complicated way thereto, whereas Waze made it. The beautiful courtyard behind a huge gate is surrounded by high walls isolating the hotel from the less developed neighbourhood, like an oasis in the desert. Although wearing ear plugs, the air traffic woke us up a few times during the first night. According to the map the planes pass the hotel at a distance of 300 m. Anyway, we liked the room, staff, garden and the pool so much that we returned there at the end of the vacation and were not disappointed. For some reason, this time the air traffic did not disturb sleeping. Perhaps the bypassing planes were landing, not taking off. The breakfast and the room were good. As a bonus they offer a free transport to the airport. We travelled before the COVID-19 pandemia.

Very clean rooms, nice reasonable restaurant and service excellent and a very relaxing lounge area/s. *I would note it can be a bit nosy with airplanes taking off overhead (right in flight path)and probably why price is cheapest than most and swimming pool should be kept cleaner.

This little hotel near the San Jose airport was a gem. Spotless rooms, lovely gardens, nice pool and super staff. The best place to stay when you need to be near the airport. The grounds are very secure and though the planes overhead can be loud, they didn't seem to fly at night so we weren't bothered by them. A real surprise as the cost is low and so were my expectations.

The five star review that Brilla Sol is given is totally false. This is the worst hotel ONE star hotel because there is not a ZERO option. The neighborhood location leaves a lot to be desired. There is a locked gate and one has to knock to enter and it is very scary at night. The hotel is not the cleanest and roaches have free range even into your suitcase and bed at night. The bathroom is terrible and dated. We could not stay and they refused to return our money. This hotel gives a very poor view of Costa Rica. I DO NOT RECOMMEND. San Jose, Costa Rica has so much better to offer.
