This hotel is right next to the airport but don't worry about that - there is only one place per day. The air conditioning was very welcome and we used the pool every day. The breakfast spread is fab. There are chickens running around the gardens. The hotel is a little out of town - a 20 min walk or...

My flight out of Easter Island was cancelled due to mechanical issues. Latam Airlines put up passangers at various hotels. I got assigned to this little gem. The rooms were spacious and clean. It also had air conditioning. The check in process was easy. The owner/manager was very nice. He kept me informed about my flight the next day and...

Dear Ilderico, Our room rates do not include Airport Transfer by default. However, you might upgrade your accommodation by adding a tour program. Tour program includes Airport Transfer and you'll receive a Collar of Flowers upon arrival. That way you only pay for services you really need and specifically request. In case you book indirectly (via online sites etc.) just...

A brilliant little hotel close to the airport and a twenty minute walk into town.The walk into town can be altered according to what you fancy.One way takes you quite quickly via small supermarkets and a bakery and then onto the main drag with restaurants etc.The other ways go via residential properties and are a nice relaxed way to reach...

Nice place to stay (when I say near the airport, there are only two flights a day!) A little out of town but a taxi into town only costs 2000 pesos and there are plenty. Or it is a 20 minute walk. The hotel has a very pleasant swimming pool and attractive gardens. Although they don't advertise it, they do...

We were extremely pleased with our 5 night stay at Puku Vai. All rooms are on one level and face the good sized, lush, inviting pool. The rooms are a decent size and decorated in Polynesian, with warm, dark wood...very soothing. Having WiFi in the room was a nice perk. It's not high-speed, but is more than adequate for a...

The hotel is located about 5 minutes from the airport but a good 20 minutes walk into the centre of Hanga Roa. The bedrooms were clean, cool and spacious with all the necessary amenities and they opened onto the garden with lots of tropical flowers and a swimming pool. The staff are lovely, helpful, friendly and their English is far...

The room was spacious and comfortable. It is small, so all rooms are near the pool and near the breakfast area. The hotel manager helped us book tours that gave us good value, so we didn't overpay for any tours.

This is a very pleasant hotel located about 15 minute walk to the town high street. The manager is both knowledgeable and helpful as are his staff. They do provide evening meals but there is no menus as such as far as I am aware. You let staff know your intention to eat there and they then get provisions. A...

I stayed here for 3 nights in early March. I found the hotel to be clean, quiet with a nice pool to cool off after sightseeing in warm and humid Easter Island.
