Stayed here for a 3-night trip to Easter Island back in April. Arrived on the red-eye flight from Lima, and staff was waiting there to pick us up and transport to the hotel even at such an early hour. Got us back promptly and we settled in for a quick nap before starting our ventures.
Room was clean and comforatable. It's not a luxury accommodation, but seemed to be on-par or above average of the other hotels available on Easter Island. Hotel was in process of renovation/construction during our stay (each night a new piece of furniture/fixture would appear in the room) but did not affect our stay or rest. No air conditioning, but it isn't really necessary. A room fan is provided. No television, but then again, who comes to Easter Island to watch TV. Breakfast each morning was good and definitely helps with the expenses of food, as lunch and dinner are the only things your need to buy elsewhere. I do agree with another reviewer on here, there is a rooster lingering nearby that gets you up kind of early!
Staff and service is fantastic. Had a small problem with one of our door locks in our room, and it was promptly dealt with when brought to the attention of the staff. They were extremely helpful and knowledgeable when asked about activities, and would sit down with you to help you plan your day for as long as it took. Maps, advice, history, etc are given out if you just ask. Very easy to talk to, friendly and helpful. Bottled water and juices (I think) are available for purchase any time at the bar. Free wireless internet, but in the lobby only.
Would highly recommend the Tupa to anyone travelling to Easter Island, thank you for making our stay so pleasant and memorable!
