I recently took my wife and two teenage sons to this wonderful resort. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The guides were all very knowledgable and helpful. We wanted to understand the history and culture of the island in detail. This was met in every respect. Two guides stood out on our visit, Beno and Christian. Beno was recently interviewed for a National Geographic article about Easter Island. He readily shared his knowledge and opinions with us. It was fascinating. Christian took our 2 teenagers on a bike ride to the highest point on the island. They loved it!! Christian was very cool according to them!! The rooms were outstanding. Great views of the ocean and very comfortable. They are also decorated in a unique island manner. The meals were first class. Lots of variety and very attentive service. There was WIFI in the bar area and it worked well. Finally, Giovanna, the hotel manager was very visible and engaged with the guests. The day we left, she got up at 5am to see us off. We loved this place. Easter Island is a long way to travel to if you live in the USA as we do. Explora Rapa Nui made the trip one of the best we have ever taken. Go to Easter Island. Enjoy this resort and learn all you can about the wonderful Rapa Nui culture while you are there. It truly is a trip of a lifetime.
