Best accommodation on Rapa Nui, no doubt. But there are (for $1100/U.S per night) a few missing pieces, such as: 1. Consistent guides for activities--in 4 days, we had 2 GREAT guides & 2 mediocre ones--not a good percentage. 2. Consistently good meals--most items were delish, and the service was EXCELLENT in the dining room. But the soups & desserts... More

The staff and management of this wonderful property were outstanding in their friendly, personal service. My room was restful and quiet with a beautiful view. (19) The guides were knowledgeable and accommodating. The explorations and hikes were a perfect blend of activity and education. The food was fabulous. The vacation was a great combination of luxury and the outdoors. It... More

Everything about our stay was professional and relaxing. Excellent room and bed, peaceful and relaxing with superb guides who know Rapa Nui well and were all local. Food exceptional. Swimming under the stars and at dawn in the hotel pool was magical. This would be a stunning honeymoon destination and is worth the cost. When it rained the staff went... More

It is quite difficult to make this review of the Explora Rapa Nui lodge as there would be so much to say. Imagine an amazing building build by a renown Chilean architect but inspired by local houses, a very good level restaurant, a very well-furnished bar, rooms which could best be described as Spartan luxury. All of this animated by... More

An amazing property where the room, food, most drinks and tours are included in the price. Consequently the price seems to be higher than other properties on the island. However, the value is the best. The property is away from town so it is quiet. Being removed from town also eliminates the light distraction so you can see the night... More

I found Explora lodge in Rapa Nui extremely relaxing with quiet comfortable rooms, great food (too much really), extremely passionate and knowledgeable guides proudly how casing their Island. Free wifi available in the bar, lounge area, but designed for a break from the world with no TV or wifi available in the rooms. AND they weren't obliged at all but... More

Very costly. All inclusive. Guides are outstanding. They are proud of their heritage and explain it well. Rooms nice. Food so-so. Very limited menu and table servers have limited English so it is hard to have requests met.

Easter Island was on my bucket list so I was thrilled to visit in January. The hotel is lovely but some kinks in the infrastructure (AC was out-- but they brought a fan), food quality was mixed, and the activities (main attration ) were mostly well done. I chalk up the hiccups to the remote location but with the rates... More

Explora is designed to get you out to enjoy the area you are visiting, not for lounging around the hotel. The rooms are nice and so is the spa area but you are there to see Easter Island so that is how the hotel is geared. They offer one excursion in the morning and another in the afternoon. The guides... More

First of all, let me say that this trip was totally worth it. Easter Island is Amazing! The programs offered at the Hotel are so diversified that you never get bored. The walks are awesome, you go into caves, on beaches, on top of volcanoes, and then of course, you have the Moai... The rooms are nice, you sometimes see... More
