Marienne and I were hosted with the spirit of Aloha from Sergio and his staff. We were warmly received at the airport and given a needed orientation upon arrival. Sergio spent time with us and gave us a lot of helpful suggestions regarding day-to-day activities, making use of our time on the wonderful island and cutting down our expenses. Our room was very clean and comfortable; the building complex and ground were presentable. Location of the hotel was a walking distance from any place of interest in town. The price (hotel rate} was just right . Breakfast was great! Mahalo nui loa to the Professor and his crew.

Room tip: Just get any room. You don't really need a view because you're out of your room all day anyway--enjoying the breathtaking sceneries and stories the island has to offer.

Sergio and his team at Tupa Hotel were great. We were there at a quiet time and so we did miss mingling a bit with other tourists however, the location was great - less than a 10 min walk to town, 15 minutes to Museo and less than 10 minutes to Takake Vave, the place for lunch (Cebiche galour).
Our room was spacious and comfortable. We were in the new area and although Sergio isn't done yet, it is great right now and the future looks very bright.
We took a tour recommended by Sergio (Rapa Nui Tours) and it was great - other than that we hiked our way around, enjoying the environment, the local culture and the sights. We were awed and moved by the stories.

Room tip: Quiet always but get one of the new rooms.

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!

Considering the high prices of Easter Island, this is a very good hotel to stay. I choose a budget room with no ocean view, but at the end I just need to sleep there and in any case the ocean view is nothing spcial...
Segio, the owner, is very helpful and gives you good recommendations for your visit of the island.
Fantastic and abundant the breakfast that allows you to save some money at lunch time...
The only little defect (not of the hotel)? A cock in the surrounding area giving the wake up call early in the morning...
Good location that would even allow to get to/from the airport by foot (exactely 1 km, but it is generally not needed as hotel staff pick you up or bring you to the airport on arrival/departure) and aroun 500 m from the center (if so can be called considering the small size of Hanga Roa)

We just recently returned from a 7 day trip to Easter Island. We stayed in the Ocean View Room at the Tupa Hotel and highly recommend it. The hotel is a 5 minute drive from the airport, and a 5 minute walk to the main street, where you'll find lots of restaurants, souvenir shops, and everything else. Our room was large, spacious, and clean, with a huge outdoor patio. There is free Wifi in the lobby. We were served a healthy breakfast every morning. The hotel is in the process of being upgraded and expanded so I anticipate that it will be even more fantastic in the future.

The owner of the hotel, Sergio Rapu, is a famous archeologist from the island. He restored and excavated many of the Moai. He personally picked us up from the airport and greeted us with leis. He took us on a brief tour around the island, explaining to us some of the history as well as making some restaurant recommendations, before driving us to the hotel. We were originally going to book a tour, but upon his recommendation, we ended up renting a car for 4 days and drove around the island, stopping off to see practically every major archeological site there is. He offered to answer any questions we had and indeed, one night, he sat with us for a few hours chatting and giving us details about the island and the Moai. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We would definitely stay at the Tupa Hotel again!
