Upon arrival at the airport, met with garlands by our tour guide, we were driven to the hotel and met with welcome drink. The views are stunning as it overlooks the Ocean but as David M said we had to take our own luggage up to the villa/room. The room was basic with no really wardrobe but an open closet with a curtain as a door, the bathroom consisted of a shower which seriously needed upgrading and an outdoor open shower which also need serious upgrading. There were three of us and three single beds but they only had two mosquito nets on the two beds and when we asked for the third one, they only put it up on the second day and it smelled so bad that I did not open it even though I had so many bites from the mosquitos (even with DEET) The restaurant area and lounge areas are nice with free tea/coffee facility and that is welcomed after a long trip seeing the Moais. The wifi worked near the lounge but obviously not in the rooms. The breakfast was good - fresh juices and bread. The staff were very friendly but the hotel is definitely not a 4* standard.
