My husband and I were meeting friends in Montanita. They had already made reservations at RPSH and so we opted to make reservations there too. I called the hotel. I was told they had availability and they took my information. I was told I needed to make a 50% deposit into their bank account to hold the reservation (they did not accept credit cards), so I asked for their bank information. I was told if I "liked" their Facebook page they would send me the info. Although I thought that was a pretty sneaky way to get a like, I did as they asked. I was never sent any info so a couple of days later I called back. They said they still had my reservation and would send me the deposit information. I followed that call up with an email. Later that evening I checked my email to see if I received the deposit info from them. What I did receive was a message telling me that since I did not make the deposit they re-sold the room and there was no longer any availability, so I made a reservation at a neighbouring hotel. Upon arrival in Montanita we walked past this hotel and were thankful our reservation did not go through. You can see the pool area from the street. The pool is the size of a large hot tub. The area is surrounded by artificial turf that is in need of trimming. The bamboo railings were partly painted and partly natural, all in need of attention. To get to the upper floors you have to take a rickety bamboo circular staircase. Our friends stated that they were not happy with their room on the 4th floor or the lack of service. They spent most of their free time over at our hotel.
