It started fairly well with the owner providing a lot of useful information and kindly ordered a car for us which was delivered to us at the hotel in the morning. Unfortunately and once we had paid for our 3-night stay it stopped there. Despite the fact that our flight was at midnight the check out was strictly at 10 am. We were able to leave our luggage in reception but it was made clear to us that it should be collected before 8 pm when reception closes. No alternatives were offered. We collected our luggage at 7:30 pm and I asked to use the toilets. I was told that there weren't any in reception and obviously he didn't want me to use the toilet in the several empty rooms. instead the owner helpfully mentioned that there were toilets at the airport!! (and no it was not a joke).
The hotel is decent but overpriced, like everything else on easter island. however, 4 USD for a cup of tea is just a rip off. I understand that the island is very isolated and that goods and services come at a premium but a cup of boiling water with a tea bag for that price is ludicrous, short of robbery. I cannot recommend this hotel, especially as it's far away from town
