Lower your expectationsPosted Mar 19, 2017
I'm afraid things may have deteriorated here over the years. If you are truly trying to save money, this might be an acceptable place for you. However, plan on making your own simple breakfast or the $10.50 per day per person charge for a strange and tiny breakfast will quickly eat up your savings. Staff seemed well intentioned but hard for us as non-Spanish speakers to communicate with them and get any support from them.

Far from town centerPosted Sep 24, 2016
Far from town. Need a car or taxi to get around into town. But very peaceful quiet location. Very good shower and hot water pressure. Easy check in. Super friendly and very helpful staff. Slow wifi access. Gift shop on site with good prices. Nice view across the street from the ocean and caves. Great place to watch the sunset.

Rural (1.5k) location so best to rent a car.Posted Jun 26, 2016
Tours and taxis expensive. Multi day car rental competitive. Visiting sites multiple times is very enjoyable especially if weather variable.

A really good base for exploring the Island.Posted Nov 6, 2014
Pros: The welcoming, courteous owner, and the homely caring attitude of all of the staff. They all really went out their way to make our holiday special.
Cons: A couple of the fixtures and fittings in the room could benefit from some minor tidying, but too much modernisation would detract from the character.
Location: Good walks are close by, many good restaurants in town. Taxi fares are reasonable. We drove ourselves around the island, but many tours are available
This was a really comfortable base for exploring Easter Island, being within a sensible distance of Hanga Roa, for restaurants and shopping, with some good coastal walks withing easy reach. The Hotel staff arranged car hire for us with a local rental company, and provided a shuttle service too and from the airport. On arrival we were presented by welcome garlands and provided with a welcome jug of fruit juice. There is a sunny garden area for topping up the tan, when you want a rest from adventures, and every day is started with a comprehensive continental style breakfast. This was a special event for us, celebrating 40 years of marriage, and met our expectations really well. We would/will certainly return to Mataveri Inn, and relive the adventure, as and when finances (flight costs) allow.

Amazing location!Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: Very humid.
Location: Everything is close by.
Short, 5 min drive from airport. Free pick up. Welcome drink and lay. The property overlooks beautiful coastline and the amazingly blue pacific ocean. Staff are really welcoming and make you feel at home. Book with confidence.

Caring staff, quiet scenic hotel.Posted May 13, 2014
Pros: Location, staff, and quiet.
Cons: Can't think of anything that could be better when using Easter Island standards.
Location: Sunset views with cliffs, historic surf level cave with petroglyphs, playground in grassy field, just a couple of minutes from downtown and airport.
Easter Island is not Hawaii. We expected a little less luxury and so we felt this hotel was an expression of high quality Easter Island lodging. It's location is a little away from the heart of town and this turned out to be best. It is ocean front at one of the most popular sunset viewing spots. The staff is priceless and caring. The rooms are clean with phones, reliable electricity, ceiling fans, porches to sit, plenty of hot water and a little cat that is our new friend.

Great setting, helpful staffPosted Apr 1, 2014
Close to volcano (40 minute walk through nice countryside) and right on coast with beautiful sea cave. There is a sea swimming pool in the rocks to the right of the cabanas in front of the posh hotel down the coast but you will have to look for it! Otherwise the nearest swimming is about a 25 minute walk. It is about 15 mins from the centre. It is an adequately equipped cabana (essentially a studio apt) with a good outside areaand small deck. Playground opposite site. Staff were brilliant. Breakfast adequate

TOO FAR FROM THE ISLAND ACTIVITIESPosted Feb 19, 2014
Cons: ALMOST EVERYTHING.
Location: SOME LOCAL CAVES AND GREAT BEACH VIEWS. SOME LOCAL TRAILS ARE AVAILABLE.
THE HOTEL IS QUIET AND CLOSE TO THE BEACH AND LOCAL CAVES BUT TOO FAR FROM CITY AND ISLAND ACTIVITIES. YOR REALLY NEED TO TAKE A TAXI FOR YOUR ISLAND AND CITY EXPLORING. EVERYTHING AT THE HOTEL IS OLD WITH NO AMMENTIES.

Friendly hotel with lovely sunset viewsPosted Jan 28, 2014
Pros: Fantastic staff, really helpful and friendly
Cons: Wasn't cleaned as well as it could have been.
Location: Caves opposite. Sunset views from room balcony. Great fish restaurant nearby. Trails nearby, easy walk into town.
The staff were really lovely. The tours they organised were fantastic. I had a fantastic experience and would go back there tomorrow if I could. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the town centre but it is an easy walk. The rooms are nice, staff were really friendly and helpful.
