Hotels on Easter Island tend to be basic and expensive for what they offer, and this was no exception. I would recommend this hotel, but it’s important to know what you’re getting. The Good: The location is great. It’s an easy walk to Hanga Roa and Ahu Tahai. The setting is lovely, with small cabanas clustered in a well maintained...

So getting there and after the first day or two, I had thought the hotel was at best a 2 out of 5 because the guy who runs the hotel is a bit stand-offish. He didn't really portray himself as kind nor did any of the office or bar or cafe workers. As we stayed longer, the hard exteriors did...

Been there for 5 days, the rooms were cozy, the breakfast was a buffet type and I loved it. Disadvantages: there's no one in the hobby past midnight, the breakfast is not ready until 8:00 (When I needed to leave early there was no breakfast) and the pool is quite small, not very attractive. Anyway, the days I spent there...

Me and my 5 years old son stayed for a week there, is a very quite and peaceful place, so close for everyplace, so, you don´t need to take taxi to the downtown. Also you can walk to see the museum and the national park Rapa Nui. Breakfast was good, and the staff very nice and helpful.

The hotel has very nice bungalows that are not well sound proofed, but the layout is very nice and spacious. The common areas are comfortable and have a good-enough internet that is limited by the island's internet availability. The internet is advertised as free, but there is a US$ 6 dollar charge good for the whole stay. The staff is...

I loved the decor and layout of the hotel and the fact that the rooms are individual bungalows. The decor inside the rooms looked like someone's home - I wasn't a fan. The breakfast was good (especially the homemade donuts). But once they run out of something, they don't replace it, unless its bread. The coffee was instant and sucked....
