This was a fantastic find on the island, and I would definitely stay there again. Cute and pretty little casitas on the edge of town - close enough to quickly walk where you might want to go, but far enough away from the main hustle and bustle to get away from other tourists if you want to. China and her son were excellent hosts, and the ladies who look after guests and their rooms were fantastic. The breakfasts were a lovely addition, and the price was very good (just know: cash only)! They really wanted to make sure I was well taken care of on the island, and were warm and very professional. Really, I can’t say enough good about the location and the people. The accommodations were more than sufficient, but keep in mind that this is much more like an Airbnb than a hotel. Chickens in the front yard and a friendly cat that liked to sleep on the porch under the bougainvillea is a pretty good shorthand for this charming place!

This property has 4 advantages over other lodgings in this price range on Rapa Nui: (1) excellent location (across from cemetery, within walking distance of Tahai for brilliant sunsets); (2) air conditioning (a necessity -- trust me on this); (3) breakfast (most properties do not provide it, or even the facilities to make it yourself); and (4) the owner, who is a native islander, former guide, and current president of the guide association. She speaks excellent English (a rarity on the island), and will take care of any arrangements you need, including guides, car rental, restaurant recommendations, everything. She picked us up at the airport and dropped us off when we left. When we wanted to hike out to Ahu Te Peu (highly recommended, BTW) after returning our rental car, she arranged for transportation up to the trail head and back. Remote vacations are so much easier when you have someone like that to help you. The rooms are ... "rustic" (my wife's description), but perfectly adequate, and exactly what you want in a place like that, IMO. (When I'm traveling I don't want to stay in a little piece of the USA, I want local flavor.) WiFi is intermittent ... but jeez, you're in the middle of the freaking Pacific Ocean! It's a miracle to have it at all. We hit the bullseye on this one; I would absolutely stay there again. Highly recommended.

It was a very comfortable stay. We arrived at the airport, unfortunately we were not picked up as per arrangements by the hotel. Luckily another hotels driver had an empty vehicle and took us to the hotel. Our room was a sweet and cosy cabin type. The room was comfortable and had the basics. You will soon learn that the island is basic or expensive. We found this place to be a perfect balance. We had a view of the ocean and flowers around our cabin. We were close to some moai. We were on the beach front and a 5m walk to amazing restaurants. We were a 10minute walk to the Main Street with markets. Our room was cleaned daily by the wonderful Peruvian housekeeper. She always seemed to be around and know exactly what we needed. Breakfast was ready when we were. We ate in a breakfast room and had buns with avocado, cheese and meat. Sometimes we had egg and yogurt too. Not a buffet style. The table is set with food when you arrive. We found it to be enough. The island is quite expensive, I didn’t need two buns so I was able to save one for lunch. But my partner would eat both. The moai butter was a fab touch. Our only concerns about our stay: -Don’t come prepared to pay in USD - pesos are really only accepted. -shower was impossible to figure out

Lily was a very good host. The airport pick-up and drop-off was appreciated, in addition to setting up our Poike hike excursion. We really looked forward to our breakfasts each day during this stay. The breakfasts were surprisingly good, and made for a great start to each active day. As with any remote location, you must adjust your expectations on the accommodations and price. For the same price we paid here at Hostal Sunset, we got a luxury boutique hotel stay in Santiago (currently ranked #4 in TripAdvisor). Although I must say, the breakfasts at Hostal Sunset were better than the ones at our Santiago hotel. Also, I did enjoy making use of the patio to enjoy the stars at night, and the tropical setting during the day. Yes, internet connection was an issue as previous reviews indicate. But you just have to ask the host for assistance, and this can be worked out as it did for us. The word "Hostal" is misleading. This is not actually a 'hostel' accommodation. You are not sharing a room when sleeping, nor are you sharing a washroom. So in this regard, this accommodation is better than what the title would lead you to believe. I liked the location, which is kind of on the edge of town. You are next to the cemetery, and within walking distance to the AHU TAHAI moai statues, which is where everyone goes to see the statues against the sunset background. This way, you can check out the sunsets on multiple days with east.

Sunset Hostal is a warm and comfortable place located very near from downtown and few blocks far from the market and the church. It has a beautiful view of the sea. The rooms are very spacious and clean and offers delicious breakfasts with delicious natural juices every morning. In addition you can rent a car there to explore the island. The cordiality and professionalism of its owner Lilian Pakarati will give you a pleasant stay in her Hostal. She received us with flowers at the airport and with her perfect English she showed us all the wonders of the island and its history.
