There are many positive things to say about this hotel, and just one negative. First the positive: the location is excellent - less than five minutes' walk to the center of Hanga Road for shopping, restaurants, bike/car rentals, and tour operators, as well as the nightly sunset viewing at Ahu Tahai. The hotel does not have air conditioning, but we... More

I liked it a lot overall. Have stayed in this type of place in other parts of Polynesia, including the Cook Islands and even the obscure independent-owneds in Hawaii. You basically get a nice room likely with a tile floor, pretty good ensuite, probably not a TV (I didn't here) and no climate control except maybe an electric fan or... More

We enjoyed a nice stay here while visiting Easter Island. The breakfast was good and it was nice having airport transportation included as well as wifi in the lobby. The rooms are very big with an ocean view. We rented a car through the hotel which made it easy to start driving around the island shortly after we arrived. The... More

Arriving at Easter Island late at night, we got off to a bad start when the hotel bus would not start. W e all had to get back out and remove luggage and stand around waiting while the driver arranged another van. We stayed at Tupa Hotel for just one night. We got in very late at night and were...

I highly recommend this hotel with nice staff and huge rooms. The Ocean view room is so beautiful with a fantastic terrace overlooking the sea. The rooms are big and the staff makes us feel welcomed. I felt so relaxed in this place. It's not the newest hotel but it's well maintained.

Our experience at Tupa was better than I'd expected from a budget hotel. The hotel is located just 100m from the main street. We booked a room with sea view, and it had a quiet terrace facing the sea. It was very spacious with a king-size bed which was very comfortable, not what you'd expect from equivalent hotels. The staff... More

Reasonably priced for Easter Island standard, central location. Clean, good size room, king size bed, nice views from the patio. The staff was helpful in arranging tours and they speak English, which is unusual if compared with elsewhere in chile.
