I actually traveled in June of 2014 but have just gotten a chance to review and post. It was quite chilly and rainy at that time of year and I really didn't expect it. Some of my plans had to change and I was not entirely ready for the lack of heat. However, this is definitely island living. I stayed... More

My husband and I just returned yesterday from our 5 night stay at Taura in Easter Island. We originally booked another hotel across the street but it was a disaster upon arrival so we walked over to Taura after seeing how nice the grounds were. Edith introduced herself to us and showed us one of the rooms - we booked... More

It's been a while since I have been disappointed in a hotel, and this hotel was the exception. This is more along the level of a Motel 6 and I would not classify it as being a hotel. Pickup at the airport was ok, with presentation of beautiful customary flower leis. We were shown to the room, and it quickly... More

Clean, quiet, comfortable rooms with an incredible breakfast. They picked us up at the airport. We also toured with Bill on our last day - he was a fascinating tour guide. At the end of our tour, he dropped us off at the airport. Great service!

Definitely recommend this little gem for your stay on Easter Island. The rooms are clean, quiet, and comfortable. The owners are friendly and gregarious without being overbearing. Bill picked us up at the airport and gave us a quick tour around Hanga Roa before checking us into the hotel. Edith was also very nice and makes delicious filling breakfasts every... More

I booked via back in Feb 2015 with owner-Edith back & forth with email communication. She responses to emsils within 48 hours which I'm delighted compared to other hotel b&b around Hanga Roa village area. Edith answered all my inquiries via email replies. She gave me a 10% discount room for 5 nights stay since I mentioned I was an... More

For easter island you have two choices, incredibly expensive accomodation or pretty basic hotels. We chose the Tuaraa and I am very pleased that we did. The rooms are simple but very clean, no TV or AC though we did not miss either, the hotel is perfectly located and the hosts, Bill and Edith could not have been more attentive.... More

This is not a fancy destination hotel, but that's not what this homey hotel tries to be. It's a nice, roomy, friendly place that's an ideal base for exploring this fascinating island. The only downside was the loud music from the restaurant next door, but the music was great and they turned down the volume after 11:30 PM.

As others have said, the Taura'a is cozy B&B in the heart of Hanga Roa. The rooms are basic but clean. The proprietors, Bill (an Aussie) and his wife Edith (a Rapa Nui native) are very pleasant and really try to accommodate their guests. A hot breakfast is served every morning with locally-grown fruits and wonderful, warm French bread from... More

We had a fantastic stay at Taura'a Hotel! Edith was waiting for us when we collected our luggage after our flight landed (with traditional leis- a very common welcome in Polynesia and on Easter Island), and she gave us a really helpful driving tour of Hanga Roa so we could start to acquaint ourselves with the town and get a...
