For a property that is so widely well regarded, our experience fell way short. The price per night certainly did not match. The dining room service was extremely slow and the staff appeared to care less. My wife is a vegetarian and the property was made aware of this well before our arrival. I have emails confirming such conversations. Every... More

We have always wanted to visit Easter Island so for a once in lifetime trip we splurged! The hotel was excellent with very good service and nothing extra to pay for. The included guided visits and walks were very good and included some nice touches like an evening picnic watching the sunset after the cliffs and caves tour (by stroke... More

Well our stay has differed from those of who have previously reviewed explora. The grounds, rooms and even the excursions have either met or even surpassed our excited expectations for checking off this bucket list item. We have found life here (as brief as 3 days are) to be filled with trivial trials such as getting food to eat, or... More

From being greeted at the airport to going home seven days later our stay was perfect. The whole ecolodge i situated on a hill looking at the ocean. It is very modern and has a great architecure. The rooms are spacious, well decorated with extremely nice beds. The shower in the jaccuzi bath was lovely. I am a bit aware... More

Iorana!!! Truly paradise. Upon arrival, we were greeted with beautiful leis at the airport and whisked off in our extremely comfortable van. Amazing & Breathtaking are the first few words that came to mind when I arrived to the hotel. The hospitality and service standards are 5 Star. The accommodations were beyond my expectations. I had wonderful nights sleep as... More

Rooms are ecological and great! Lovely window to the garden and ocean. Nice massages in the small spa. Great breakfast buffet. The bar is a great meeting point at the end of the day. Every night you will choose your tour for the next day. Private vans for 8-12 people from the hotel. So you get to know other visitors... More

We loved absolutely everything: the timeless hospitality, the amazing dining experience, and the unforgettable adventures. The hotel grounds are breathtaking, and our room was comfortable and modern. The highlight is its wonderful staff, a huge thanks to everyone!

great experience there with my teenage kids. Sites were great, long trip to the island from Santiago, and neat sites on the island.....if you go, it is well worth staying here. Wonderful service, food, excisions and guides.

My husband and I stayed here as part of a National Geographic tour of Patagonia, with Easter Island as an option extension. I am SO glad that we decided to add on Rapa Nui. It is truly a unique place. We loved our stay in Explora Lodge in Torres del Paine, so we were expecting great things as we headed... More

We flew from Tahiti to Easter Island to encounter the Moai and the Rapa Nui care of Explora Mike Rapa . We left having done almost everything you could do on 23 sq m of island in the middle of the South Pacific, thousands of kilometers from South America and Tahiti. The most isolated island on earth but due to... More
