The hotel is not particularly exciting: it's being renovated right now, rooms are very big but spartan, the ocean view is not the best you can get on the island. However: (1) the staff is very friendly; (2) the place is clean, comfortable enough and safe; (3) Sergio, a native who run the hotel, is one of the world leading expert in Easter Island history and archeology. Sergio is also very helpful: he picked us up at the airport for free; we wanted a car, and he arranged everything with the car rental (good car and cheap price); we needed equipment for visiting the island caves, and he provided all we needed (for free); we needed the check out late, and indeed he allowed us (for free).
To avoid confusion or misunderstanding with the room payment (you cannot do it online), just decide in advance whether you want to pay in USD or CLP, and confirm the price with the staff. I did it in this way and everything was perfect.
Thanks Sergio for the nice staying and for the great time on this wonderful island!
