My husband and I stayed for 3 days, and we loved Rapa Nui and this hotel. Edith and Bill run a great hotel, and Bill's tours were interesting, informative and fun. Bill was part of the crew on the film "Rapa Nui" and has many anecdotes about the filiming of that movie, which made his tours even more interesting. Our tour group had a total of 7 people, and it was a great group of people. I think the Sept 21 posting below was by one of the members of our group (Hi Mike!).
The room was clean and comfortable, with a nice view of the ocean. The breakfasts were good, and everyone who worked there was very friendly and helpful.
We ate dinner at two good restaurants -- Te Moana and the restaurant next door to the hotel that is owned by Edith's sister. Everyone was very friendly at the restaurants, especially Edith's niece Caroline. Also, it was handy to have an internet cafe right across the street; there are several in town.
We were on the island for only 3 days, which was too short. We would like to return, and would certainly stay at this hotel again.
