Hotel Rapa Nui is a nice hotel in downtown Hanga Roa. I bought their 4 nights 5 days package which included Airport pickup and dropoff, breakfast daily and a scooter. I arrived on Easter Island and when I walked out of the airport the driver was there waiting for me. We drove to the hotel where I checked in. I... More

Well, maybe my room was not the best one they have. The window in the bathroom was broken..There was some sort of broblem with hot water: sometimes you got hot water sometimes you didn´t. Also I didn´t understand why the insect I had found in my bathroom was still there (under the drinking glass where I had captured it) after... More

I was a little scared about the accomodations on the island because we are used to so much "fluff" in the states even when staying at basic accomodations; but this is what I learned. All the accomodations on the island are basic. It is not about the accomodations, it's the experience of the island itself that is the reason for... More

We stayed there one night during our stay on Rapa Nui (we had made reservations elsewhere, but they couldn't accomodate us for our first night on the island, so that's how we ended up at Hotel Rapa Nui). The hotel is close to town. Here's the thing we figured out by the time we left: If you are "in town,"... More

My wife and I spent 3 days on Easter Island and found the accomodations in Hotel Noi to be first class. Stayed in cabin 3, and although nice with a partial ocean view, we would recommend trying to rent the cabin higher up (Cabin 7-10) that offer breath taking views. The restaurant and staff were excellent. Our guided tour given... More

No frills but a good hotel to stay in. I spent most of my time exploring the island and would come in just to sleep. It is well located, around the corner of a main in stree in Hanga Roa. Just walk a few steps and you will have an internet spot which is not expensive to use it, and... More

The location of the hotel is on the street going to the water and is 2 blocks from the main street with all the shops, restaruants and the supermarket.

The hotel is near to the church, main street, two blocks away from the beach. The breakfast is good. The room was spacious. The towels are not changed everyday. Be aware of your arrival time because the front desk works from 8.30am. I had to wait for at least half an hour to be taken to my room.

What a wonderful, little boutique place Hotel Rapa Nui was. The customer service was always friendly and with a smile, especially, Manuel, who was always available to help out. The price was reasonable for the location and the services offered (included breakfast and Wifi) and the room / bed was comfortable. Everything was within walking distance to the town. We... More
