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 the help of fellow staff members to help out. Excursions were well thought out although our welcome chat never materialized despite showing up at the time we were told to.
Wifi is a bit limited and temperamental and only available in the lounge area and one of the drivers was a bit of a miserable chap but this seemed isolated and our guides on excursions as well as the rest of the hotel staff were very good.
If we were heading to Easter Island again, which is well worth the five hour flight from mainland Chile, we would definitely stay at Explorer Rapa Nui.
