Environmentally friendly, and really tries to blend in with the environment, and lives up to its environmental policies. Most impressed. Staff is friendly, spanish speaking but try very hard to deal with our English. Actually loved the cows grazing in the back yard. Excursions are fun and guides very knowledgeable. I could stay here without seeing anything on Easter Island, but obviously the moai are a must see.
