This is a small hotel. The rooms are built around a beautiful garden with a pool and it is very peaceful and quiet. The rooms are not luxurious but are very clean and comfortable and of a high standard for Easter Island (unless you can pay the enormous rates at the top couple of hotels!) The manager/owner and staff were...

Stayed at this hotel on my visit to Easter Island April 24-25 with a friend, and couldn't have been more delighted with the choice. It was just minutes from the airport, which was convenient and great after many hours of flying, and the tour company was waiting on arrival (booked through the hotel). We walked into town but really didn't...

Review based on a 7 night stay commencing April 17 This hotel probably deserves a 5 star rating from me, but I'm docking one point solely for the fact that after going to the room, my wife had to wipe all the shelves in the wardrobe. The cloth came away black (no exaggeration), which would have transferred to any clothing,...

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...

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.

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...
