If there was a 6* option I would have given it! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome by Peter and his family. The perfect host, we were lucky enough to also have a day with Peter as our tour guide, which was so interesting - and highly recommended if he has capacity! The bungalows... More

This is very likely one of the best stays I've had anywhere. If you are visiting Easter Island, you absolutely need to let Peter take care of you at Hareswiss. The bungalows are very nice with everything you need including a small kitchen. Peter is a wealth of knowledge about all things relating to Easter Island (not to mention other... More

We stayed in one of the bungalows in November 2015. Breakfast was provided in generous portions and Peter was very knowledgeable on the local culture and customs. The location is a 20 minute walk from the town. We were there for 4 nights and never tired of the view as we walked back and forth. The bungalow is kept spotlessly... More

Peter and Tiare have the perfect combination: the best of both Europe and Polynesia in these lovely bungalows. I booked it over a year in advance; it is always full. The view from the bungalow porch is a great place for sunsets.

My wife booked into Hareswiss (meaning Swiss House in Rapa Nui), and I am glad she did. We were greeted at the airport by Peter, complete with two beautiful lei in hand. He welcomed us and gave a brief tour of some of the highlights of the town on the way to the "hotel." We were situated into the firsts... More

I can only confirm what previous reviewers have said. If one of Hareswiss’ three bungalows is available, don’t look further and just grab it! We stayed six nights with Peter who made our stay as comfortable and interesting as possible. The bungalow is spacious, comfortable and very well maintained and Peter keeps on upgrading and finetunig it. It has a... More

As a Marriott Platinum and IHG Gold member I normally book one of these chains. However, there are no international chains on Easter Island. After spending hours reading all reviews of different hotels, I ended up with two in the finals and the fact that the owner is a Swiss national decided about the winner. It was a wise decision,...

I booked a room at Hareswiss based on the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. I cannot add to anything other reviewers have said...they've said it all. We booked Peter's tour of the island and it was an excellent tour. Aside from seeing the highlights and the wonderful photo ops, Peter shared with us his insight into the... More

After researching the web for a nice place to stay on the Easter Island I found Hareswiss on Tripadvisor with lots of good reviews. I booked right away and did not get disappointed at all. Peter picked us up from the airport in the early morning with a typical Lei and gave us a short tour through Hanga Roa showing... More

If you are reading this review and have not yet booked a room at Hareswiss, stop reading and email Peter immediately. If Hareswiss is available, just book it and I guarantee you will be happy with your choice. It's the best place in EI irrespective of price, but it also happens to be great value. The cabins are spacious, comfortable... More
