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. I really appreciated the kindness of the staff, especially Manuel, who helped us arrange a very nice trip with a local guide, Christophe (actually French),... More

I stayed at hotel Rapa Nui for a couple of nights. I arrived late, but they were expecting me. Staff members Perla and Margarita were very helpful, very sweet, went out of their way to give advice and help. Rooms are basic, but i knew that, and it was clean. Breakfast was ok. It was a small cold buffet and... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The location is great with easy walking distance to the main part of town. Unfortunately the service to the rooms was very poor. We had the same towels our entire stay and due to the humidity they never dried so became very smelly. We only... More

We stayed here for three nights and for what we needed, it was good. The bathroom wasn't big, but it was a good enough size. There was a gap between the air conditioner hose/pipe and the hole in the wall to outside, so hot air was coming in while the a/c was running. My husband fixed this and had to... More

Hotel Rapa Nui was a good choice (not quite budget) for accommodation in Easter Island. Room was clean and breakfast included. Not the greatest selection of food for breakfast but adequate for the price. It was only a couple of minutes walk to the main strip of shops where there were touristy shops as well as eateries. Internet connection wasn't... More
