This isn't a 5-star hotel, but for me had all the basics for a place in such an isolated place: good location, clean, friendly staff, nice garden-like setting with partial views to the ocean, okay breakfast, and (intermittent) wifi. Close to shops and the rest of town, with a few restaurant/bars just around the corner.

Location was good. Shower pressure excellent. Employees were very nice. Temperature was a little bit cold in the morning. Poorly paved access and hilly to main door and reception. Some neglect in the garden. No lamps on night stands. No real coffee for breakfast, but just ignoble soluble Nescafé. They charge you apart for eggs. At night, dogs bark and... More

I will say some things that sound negative in this review, but basically I would recommend this place. I received good value for money, and I would stay again. However, this is not in any sense a luxury hotel. The property was beautiful, but my room was dingy, with three small beds (for one person) and poor lighting. It did... More

An affordable hotel with nice grounds. Exceptional friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms, bedding, hot water for showers. Staff will take your laundry out and return it for you at a minimal price - especially nice during rainy days. WiFi available in the main dining room. Breakfast is included: fresh fruit, fresh juice, coffee and tea as well as pastries.... More

We stayed three nights at the Hotel Rapa Nui on Easter Island. We were met at the airport by a young family and their child and transported by van to the hotel which was only about two miles away. The first thing to realize is that on Easter Island accommodations are fairly basic and certainly not luxurious. Hotel Rapa Nui... More

Get to breakfast early, as some items run out. The hotel is in a quiet location, a quick walk to the Main Street and waterfront. I love the roaming chooks in the garden. Room was very comfortable but could do with a little more shelving space for 'stuff'.

Great hotel and staff, beautiful location and surroundings. The city center was at a walking distance, as well as the sea shore, where you could find some Moai statues and a wide range of restaurants.
