Obviously I cannot really say that as I have not stayed at any of the other hotels/guest houses, but it certainly felt like that. We had just come from Explora Patagonia, and the underlying concept and approach is very similar so it felt like a home from home. Both the staff in the hotel and the guides were extremely friendly... More

Rapa Nui was a bucket list destination for us. It didn't disappoint. Explora is amazing. The rooms are attractive, the bathrooms divided into three sections: toilet, sink and Jacuzzi/shower rooms. The food is delicious. But the best feature at Explora is the staff who are caring and helpful and charming and happy to tailor excursions to every personal taste and... More

We recently stayed at the Explora for three nights, following a stay at the Explora in Patagonia. The difference in service levels was very noticeable. There were only ten guests in the lodge during our stay. We were forced to be part of a group for our activities, even though we weren't traveling together and we didn't necessarily have the... More

This is one of the great hotels in the world in one of the great places in the world. The feel is relaxed, eco-tourism ; the rooms are superb - the hotel offers fantastic guided activities, almost all led by knowledgeable rapa nui experts. Easter Island itself is amazing, the explora hotel is the perfect place to see it from.

Fantastic rooms and good service from Explora on Easter Island. The restaurant serves delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The rooms are really nicely decorated with simple yet luxurious furnishing. There is ample storage in the rooms and they are well maintained during your stay. Service throughout was friendly with some language issues but these were quickly overcome with... More

The setting is amazing. Overlooking the south coast, a vast sweep of land is as vibrant as the ocean view. They set up two expeditions per day, usually with only a few people and one or two guides. All are customized based on what you would like to do, how much hiking, climbing or exploring you prefer. The guides are... More

We purchased this stay as part of a 7 day Explora package at a fundraiser for The US Sailing Center Martin Co., Fl. Our experience sat Posada de Mike Rapu was the same as that we experienced at Explora Patagonia. Everything was first rate, from the accommodations to the food to the treks.

This review will likely be a bit different from the rest. To start off, I can award nothing but the highest points in all areas that matter for a seasoned traveler to such a remote destination. Our eight-night stay on Easter Island surpassed all of our expectations, and I would return to Explora Rapa Nui in a heartbeat. All of... More
