We booked the hotel very quickly, as Jarkco answered our emails super fast and provided us with all the information we needed! The room was very nice, all the room have a glass door towards the swimming pool and you can seat outside your room and enjoy a peaceful evening or relax after sightseeings! 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.

Nice small hotel (only around 10 rooms) and nice and spacious rooms, with everything you need (mini fridge, towels to go to the beach, terrace behind the room...).

Thank you for your review! Hotel Puku Vai is specifically an authentic Easter Island hotel: simple but unique. A/C and Free Wi-Fi internet (in your room, garden and all common areas) might be the most important services but details such as beach towels (you can loan them to the beach, as well), plugin adaptors (Chile has 220 V) etc. will...

we had a great three nights here. Even though it is right next to the airport, the fact that there is only one plane per day in the afternoon meant that it was still very quiet. About twenty minutes walk into town where there are a few small shops, restaurants and hotels so ideally placed.

Location is tough to beat. Steps from the airport (about a 5min walk), although still nice and quiet due to the limited flight schedule. Short easy walk into town. Cute pool although cool breezy weather kept us out of the water. Friendly service. Room interior was somewhat reminiscent of some of the hotels around Lake George and the Adirondacks, most... More
