I feel compelled to write this after reading a couple of poor recent reviews. I cannot address the concerns about overbooking as it didn't happen to me, nor did I hear of it happening to anyone else. But what I can say is that Vaianni is a wonderful place to stay. The owner Joanna & her cousin Cecilia are incredibly friendly & informative hosts.
As part of the check-in process Joanna will give you a quick driven tour of the town & at the Residencial Cecilia will give a detailed & thorough explanation of all the sights on the island.
I was staying in the shared accommdation section & despite there being one bathroom for 7 people, it was kept as clean as possible. A slight problem with the shower is that it sometimes turns cold for a few mins but it always comes back hot.
The people I met staying here were very friendly & there is a real social atmosphere in the garden where there is a shaded area to sit. There is a great kitchen you can use if you want to keep costs low.
The best thing about this place for me was the amazing breakfast. Fruit, bread, jam, cheese, ham, avocado, tomato, eggs, fresh juice. Everything was so fresh!
To address some points in the previous review, I spoke to Cecilia about the points raised & she said that reviewer never raised those concerns at the time. If they werent happy & had asked to change rooms they probably couldve worked something out. Also, regarding cleaning, my room was not cleaned on sunday, but I would understand if some rooms were because PEOPLE CHECKOUT EVERYDAY! ;) And regarding the knowledge of Joanna & Cecilia, everything they told me was accurate & helpful.
So, in summary, Vaianni is an awesome place to stay. Your Easter Island experience will be enhanced by staying here.
