We visited Easter Island for 3 days and selected this hotel because of the good reviews and tours available. Transfers are provided and went smoothly. After checking in we got a short tour of the town and they dropped us off there so we could walk around as the weather was wet and not really good for anything else. We took a taxi back to Jerome's after dinner ($5 even though we had been told it would be less. I think they charge more for visitors.)
The rooms are simple and my rating and review is in consideration of properties available on the island. There was a small refrigerator (we used) and microwave (we did not use). We had a double bed and single bed in the room which we used to unpack on. Closet space and cubby holes were provided but you really needed more space to unpack in and the extra bed worked well. No luggage rack so suitcases went on the floor. Lighting was adequate to see in but you really couldn't read at night. The bathroom was small. Hot water was not always available and came and went during the shower. The shower leaked on the floor. No toiletries at all were provided. I found that strange, soap especially. Luckily we had some soap with us and I always carry shampoo and conditioner. 2 fresh bath towels were provided every day. There was only one double hook in the bath to hang them on so they never had a chance to get air and dry. If you wanted to take a shower and use it again it had a slight "wet" smell.
Breakfast consisted of juice, coffee, hot water for tea or hot chocolate, a cup of (canned) fruit cocktail, and rolls of ham and cheese. Cereal and milk were available if you wanted it. A wonderful French bread was out for slices and we enjoyed ham and cheese sandwiches every morning. It was good and filled us for the day.
We took a full day tour with Jerome on our second day and it was well worth it. We saw all the major sites and Jerome gave us good information about all of them. It is definitely worth taking one of his tours as you see a lot and don't have to deal with the roads which are bad in some places. Plus you get all the important background info. That night we walked into town for dinner before dark (I would not recommend the walk in the dark) and rented a car after dinner. We used this to get back to Jerome's that evening, to tour the next day and to get us into town for dinner the next evening, returning the car after and getting a taxi back. We liked the location out of town, but close enough to walk.
Free internet was available. Sometimes it didn't work in the room, but you could walk to the reception area and pick up the signal and connect. I had heard it would be like dial-up on the island but was pleasantly surprised.
