Good Location, Quality Could Be Better
Posted Jan 2, 2017
This hotel, while well located, is antiquated by modern standards. I had to turn on hot water to the sink to get the shower to heat up, and the bathroom was quite cramped. The mattress was old and furniture warped. While there is a communal kitchen, people talking in the courtyard late at night would sometimes keep me awake. There is no A/C but it was not needed. While instructions say to leave the towel in the shower for it to be changed, this just results in a wet towel.
The owner is friendly and speaks English well having lived in Australia. He meets visitors at the airport and gives a nice tour of the area. However, he is not always present and there is no traditional front desk staff. The hotel is on the main street near dining, shops, and an ocean swimming area.
Easter Island represents the peak of ancient Polynesian culture. It is beautiful, very safe and the tap water is drinkable. I recommend traveling to the Island, but it may be worth looking at a newer facility.
