I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hotu Matua. The ladies (and 1 gent) at reception were extremely efficient, always friendly, always did more than what was required. I'll go back there anytime and highly recommend it. The room was a bit rustic, but clean. The meals were good and the setting of the hotel is ideally close to town, yet quiet.

Upon our arrival at the airport a man from the hotel was holding a sign with my name on it, he had lei's for us & then he drove us 2 minutes to the hotel. That made us feel special! At check in, Ali was very kind, upgrading our room to a suite since the pool was under construction. We walked through many corridors to room 148. The room had two bedrooms (a full & 2 twins), a sitting area & a small bathroom. There isn't anything impressive about the hotel. There are four very thin walls, beds & a bathroom. You can hear people talking through the walls. We took cold showers several times as the gas to heat the water was out. There are cockroaches in the rooms, and you may see rodents if it rains. Be prepared. The mosquitos were not bad during our stay but the weather was chilly, rainy & overcast. There is a breakfast served but it's very limited; instant coffee, tea, juice, cereal, one type of cheese & one type of lunch meat, a few pastries, jelly & bread. You may request scrambled eggs but they most likely will not be cooked all the way. We knew going into our 3 night stay that The hotel is about a 15 - 20 minute walk to town. If you want to rent a scooter you must have a motorcycle license from your country. Cars are available in manual only & there are 4 wheelers/ATVs to rent. We only needed four walls & a bed, we were prepared for the conditions. This is a 1-2 star place. Everyone at the hotel was very kind, friendly and as accommodating as possible. Please note that you must buy the ticket to enter the Rapa Nui National Park at the airport before you get your luggage. You many only visit each site 1 time, you cannot return multiple times!

The hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the airport and about 20 minutes from the middle of town. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and spoke good English - they took lots of time giving us good advice on getting around. The hotel itself is fine for the price - showers are warm and rooms clean, but it is need of a substantial refurbishment. A complimentary breakfast was also included with the room price and there was a free shuttle (the 800m) to the airport at 12.00 and 15.00, which was great as we're travelling on a budget.

This place supposedly had a "Garden View" but the hotel doesn't have a garden - just plants around a pool, of which I could see if I stood right next to the window and looked right, as mainly I was looking at a wall. And to that pool, large groups gather there and play music from their iPhones and talk loudly sometimes as late as 3am. No signs are warding these people off, and staff don't care. My room was super musty (see above "wall view") and the fan didn't work, so nothing got dry. Ever. As to be wifi, it would actually be better if the place didn't have it since it's so slow/cuts out it's a waste of time.

とても快適な2日間を過ごすことが出来ました。4月ということもあってか、宿泊客は私一人でしたが、スタッフの方には大変親切にしてもらいました。 このホテルに対して多くの否定的で辛辣なコメントが寄せられていますが、どうか無視してください。 私も正直な所、身構えていましたがそんな気持ちが恥ずかしくなるくらい不満という不満はありませんでした。(強いて挙げるならバスルームのお風呂がかなり年季が入ってることくらい) もし、あなたがイースター島で豪華な食事や広々としたプールをお望みなら他の豪華で贅沢でありきたりなホテルに行ってください。 贅沢なホテルでは味わえない庶民的で開放的な場所です。また、スタッフとの距離も近く優しい気持ちになれるでしょう。 I spent two days in Hotel Hotu Matua and I enjoyed to stay here so much. I'm the only one customer in here. Staff were really nice to me. Other people complain about this hotel and it makes me so sad. Price is good, room is clean (bath was a bit old but it's ok), friendly staff, how can you say it's bad. If you want to stay hotel with a big pool or great restaurant, you should go to expensive hotel. Overall, I like this hotel even people called old-hotel.
