Average hotel with reasonable rate. No AC in room. Wi Fi is not the best in room. Sometimes we had to go to hotel restaurant to use the Wi Fi from the hotel next door. Front desk people are helpful and all speak English. Breakfast buffet is simple but sufficient. Close to town but the town is very small. there...

We regret the inconveniences with the hotel's WIFI, but low connectivity is common and occurs in much of our island. I commented that we do not have air conditioning in our rooms, due to the sustainability policies established from 2013, In any case it is possible that our passengers request an additional fan at the reception.   We appreciate your...

Though located a short walk from downtown. Though the property is very lovely. The rest is a nightmare. Dont expect relief from the hot sun since your room has no AC. You can get AC in the Serengeti for goodness sake. The beds were so old you could feel every spring. The safe in the room did not work at...

We appreciate your opinion, which helps us to work on possible future problems in our hotel.   I commented that we have sustainability policies, which makes us the first ecolodge hotel in Easter Island and that is why one of our practices is the use of only a fan in the rooms and in case the guest requires it in...

We are Asian- American with US Passport couple. We traveled to many countries and many places before, but this is the first time we felt being discriminated. Usually we booked the hotels on our own, but this was a long trip with different destination, so we booked all the airline tickets and transfers with the same package. The travel agent...

We stayed for 6 days and the hotel is good located, one block from the downtown. The staff is very nice and helpful, the rooms are clean and it has a good breakfast (nothing fancy). You can arrange all your tours at the lobby.

Not sure my review of average is fair as hotels without air conditioning may be the norm on Easter Island. There was a cooling unit of some kind in our room but even running it 24 hours did little to cool our room. I'm sure it was over 80 degrees until the sun went down. The room did have a...

This property offers very basic accommodation but you do not spent a lot of time in your room, anyways. It offers very personal service, including a free (basic) breakfast. I rented a car through the owner. Good , central location.

Great location with a short walk to the downtown area. The staff were really nice and would help with booking of tours and general advice about the island. Breakfast was average, and the hotel has a somewhat scenic garden feeling to it. Some trouble with the AC as it would leak water onto the floor, but luckily none of our...

It is a really cute Hotel but not expect it's a resort. The wifi is not the best in the whole island. You go there to disconnect and get in touch with nature.

“The closer you stay to the kitchen the quicker you get hot water. The road view rooms seemed to be a little noisier with chickens/roosters and dogs. There's a small church on the road and on Sunday they start singing early.”
