Just returned from Easter Island after eight glorious days at the Tapati Festival. This hotel was the icing on an exquisite cake. It all starts with a lei greeting and gets better;. Breakfast is first-rate, your choice of eggs just the way you want them, or how about crepes? The best juice blend you'll ever taste and lots of coffee and fruit and fresh rolls. My bed was a comfortable king. I didn't come expecting a Grand Hyatt. After all. this is an island with no TV. Yes, there are teeny-tiny ants in the room, so just put everything edible in the fridge and live with them. Oh yes, save those bottles and refill them, the water is fine, and if you have doubts boil it at night in the coffee maker, fill your bottles in the morning and put them in the fridge for the next day. This folks here do not like having you cluttering up their paradise with unneeded rubbish. For the budget minded, there is a terrific bakery right across the street where you can grab goodies (definitely try the empanadas) to take touring. Location, location, location. Don't be enticed to those expensive hotels out of town because you will want to be in the heart of things. The hotel provides a card that will get you discounts in lots of local places--very handy. And their tours are first-rate. Any problems, just go to Bill and Edith and they will solve them. They made me feel like one of the family, which happens to be huge and influential on this island. I met a man who was staying here for the seventh time, that should tell you all you want to know.
