My rating of the Kaimana Inn as average is what I expected prior to my trip. As a budget hotel I had no complaints. The owner was great, the breakfast was very helpful to get my day started. The room was clean and the water was hot with good pressure. The bed never compares to home. I appreciated that the... More

Firstly, as I am sure you will already know Easter Island only really offers VERY high end or quite basic hotels, without anything in between. Kaimana Inn is "one of the best" in the basic category, according to the tour guide we had.  To give you an idea of layout: the main rooms are located around a central 'courtyard' where... More

Five minutes by car from the airport, especially if Marcelo, the owner, comes to pick you up. Kaimana is a charming place with plants growing all around. The rooms are around a central hub that is the eating/lounging space that places a dent on privacy (especially if you are in Room 1) unless you keep the curtains drawn. It was... More

This small hotel is conveniently located in the heart of town, within an easy walk to just about anyplace in town you might want to go. The staff is friendly and courteous and the owner, Marcelo, is charming and helpful. The rooms are pleasant and the beds are comfortable. You may encounter a bug or two, but I suspect this... More

As with previous reviews, what stood out most about Kaimana Inn was the owner, Marcelo. He is a truly genuine guy and made us feel extremely welcome. He gave us a very personalized tour and it is obvious that he has a deep knowledge and appreciation of the island's history and the Rapa Nui people. The room itself was cozy... More

The hotel itself is rather basic - there's a clean room with a fridge, a bathroom and a common area, but for the price this seemed very good, especially considering that things in Easter Island are generally more expensive than in mainland Chile for obvious reasons. The inn had a nice homey atmosphere and we had a very comfortable stay... More

Had a great time. We had a good hot breakfast every morning. Friendly and helpful. Appreciated the location in "downtown" Hanga Roa and having wifi access. Marcelo picked us up at the airport and gave us a short tour.

You have a room and all the basics but most importantly you have Marcelo. He's the man who can direct you to where you need to be. We loved every minute of our time on the island thanks in part to Marcelo getting us on the right tour. We were there during the annual festival, be sure to plan your... More

Really enjoyed staying at the Kaimana Inn. We had spent a week in Chile for our honeymoon and finished off the trip with a few days on Easter Island. This worked out perfectly as we had a really relaxing time on the island and Marcelo helped with that a lot. We got picked up at the airport complete with a... More

Unfortunately for us the owners were not on the island. We did not get the service we saw in the reviews prior to booking. After the 1st day we rarely so those who were responsible for the hotel. We did get a ride to and from the airport, a distance of about 1 mile. It is on the main street... More
