We were staying for six nights at this excellent hotel. Good management. Good breakfast.Clean.rooms. We slept very well in comfortable beds. Maybe a bit remote, but good value for Money. It was easy and inexpensive to take a taxi. Wi-Fi is not that good, but it´s not good anywhere on Easter Island.

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. Close to the airport, within walking distance; close to the town; free WiFi; personalized help and information from the manager; and not expensive. Low key breakfast (but that's all over) and clean rooms.

This is a custom built hotel near the airport and main town is within walking distance. (30 mins). The hotel has very little character and don't expect a drink in the bar after 9pm,but the rooms are very comfortable and large.

Thank you for your comments. Hotel Puku Vai is a small, boutique style hotel. We do not have a disco or a bar with band playing all night. Easter Island simply is not a destination for party-goers and we're sorry to hear that this was what you did expect from your hotel. We aim to provide a peaceful environment in... More

We stayed four nights, and enjoyed it all. The internet worked, the pool was refreshing, and the location convenient to our desire for exploration. Morning breakfast buffet was great with many choices. The owner is a transplant from Finland, and his Rapa Nui wife and he (and their two children,) make this an excellent choice for anyone desiring a relaxing... More

Our room was huge, with everything... More

This is a small hotel out by the airport (don't worry about aircraft noise there is usually only one flight scheduled a day) about 15 minutes walk to the heart of the main street although there are a few restaurants closer. The service was excellent, very helpful and friendly. The hotel is very clean, we were warned that hotels can... More

We chose this hotel on Easter Island for our four nights stay and it could easily have been a week, as it was so good. Within walking distance to the town, but if prefered taxis are plentiful & inexpensive, also near to the airport which can save time on arrival a & departure.
