A satisfying experience for our family
Posted Feb 10, 2012
The hotel's location is perfect since a walk to the town of Hanga Roa takes 15 minutes. The views from the pool and dinning area are fabulous. All rooms have a nice view of rolling green hills, cliffs, and the ocean. The actual infrastructure is pretty basic, so do not expect anything fancy for your money. Easter Island is not about that. You're paying for fabulous views, clean air, friendly-happy people, simple food, and an opportunity to disconnect from the daily routine.
The hotel offers a half or full meal plan which turned out to work well for us, since food around the island is not inexpensive. Breakfast was buffett style which offered enough choices to satisfy us and lunch and dinner were fixed menus. Service around meals can be slow, so enjoy the views. Having a pool was perfect for our 6 yr old and gave us a chance to have some down time from sightseeing. Rooms have TVs, but only two channels...so TV watching was out of the question. We watched the waves and the turquoise waters of the Pacific instead and our daughter also enjoyed chasing the cats and chicken that live around the premises.
Staff was always helpful with all our small requests.
