When we arrived, sandwiches were on the table and we were urged to choose afternoon excursions - great to get into the program. Bartender was terrific, always remembered what you like. Food was very good - not "great". Service in the dining room was...

We loved our stay at Explora Rapa Nui! The guides did a fantastic job of explaining the background of the island on our hikes and excursions. The hotel planned a beach BBQ with local fish for us one day. Another day, we were there at the start of their 2 week annual festival. So we saw the quarry and then...

Arriving at the Easter Island Airport we were met by our guide, a representative of the hotel and taken by van down a very rough dirt road to the hotel but that just added to the sense of adventure of being on this beautiful island. The hotel is one story and does a wonderful job of blending into the landscape....

Hotel is beautifully sited along the coast. Staff/guides were personable, professional and passionate about their work. Stayed for 4 days - perfect amount of time. The rooms are typical of explora - basic clean design with spectacular views. Food was excellent in both quantity and quality.

Never have I stayed at a hotel where by the end I have zero negative things to write about it. The rooms were beautiful, food tasted amazing, staff incredibly friendly and the all round feel just brilliant. If I ever come back to the island I will only stay at this hotel, such a dream experience.

Explora Rapa Nui was recommended to us by Lindblad. We stayed there 3 nights even though we utilized a private guide, again recommended by Lindblad. Our welcome at the airport was warm & friendly with beautiful fresh flower leis. The resort is set in a beautiful location off dirt roads with no signage from the "main" road. Roads were very...

This is in south-eastern Rapa Nui, 8 kilometers (4.9 Miles) from Hanga Roa, the most populated part of the island.All of the 30 rooms, which extend to the north and south from a central building, have excellent ocean views. The lodge has welcoming indoor spaces which integrate aspects of the local culture.The design is intended to have minimal impact on its surroundings. The lodge is built on a site which is inappropriate for agricultural use and has no archaeological remains. The flora surrounding the lodge has been maintained intact. ... more   less
