Easy to pre-book and worth the effort, as this hotel will become popular. Average residential neighborhood only 5 minutes from the Santa Maria airport, and accessible by their free shuttle. What a pleasant surprise when the outside street gates opened into a garden heaven. Staff (Ivan) checked us in efficiently and was very helpful. The garden area where we ate dinner was beautiful. The Chicken Curry was out of this world!! Having a great restaurant on site is a time saver. The room was clean, well appointed, and most unusual in Costa Rica, had Hot water! We will return.

I’ll start off with... the food was great.
Here’s the breakdown...

Food: Four out of the five of us ordered curry chicken, the other ordered mushroom chicken.
At the very least, I would expect all of the plates to arrive within an 5 minutes of one another. We received four plates of curry chicken, then 25 minutes later (after the rest of us finished our meals) the mushroom chicken arrived.

Drinks: We ordered a bottle of wine for the table (1 standard bottle of wine is described as 750ml by lifebytheglass.com, and is known as a standard around the world). We received a bottle that was 500ml, which isn’t even considered to be 1/2 bottle or 375ml.
The waiter should have informed us of this.

Service: The waiter never asked how the meal was, if we needed anything, or even if the food was okay. Meanwhile, the waiter blatantly walked by our table, straight into this office, turned on the television, pulled a chair into the doorway (facing the tv, opposite to the guests) and started watching the news.

Very friendly and English speaking. Room is modest but very clean and
air conditioned. Close to the airport and offers one free shuttle with each night.
I stayed two nights...one on day of arrival and one night before departure.
Beautiful well kept grounds. Pool was nice but a little cold for this Florida girl but it was overcast and late in the day when I swam.

Room Tip: Room #2 Ground floor

This was an overnight stay while waiting for a flight the next day. We did not leave the hotel during our stay and we did not need to. The hotel has books, beer, swimming pool,and a restaurant.
The room was clean, the food was good, and the beer was cold.
My only complaint is that the free shuttle is only free one way. It is $10 back to the airport. Luckily it was $10 per room, not $10 per person back to the airport.

Stayed at Brillasol our first night due to late flight arrival. The hotel is just 5mins from the terminal.
Breakfast was ok. Dinner really slow.
Rooms were not clean and noisy in the morning. Too expensive even for CR.
