Explora Rapa Nui is in a beautiful location on a magical island. The staff is courteous and accommodating, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the food is delicious. The guides that lead the daily explorations are well informed about the sites, and interested in ensuring that your questions are answered and needs are met. We travelled with two teenage...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

Explora Rapa Nui is located in a farm. As such, part of the fun was watching horses and cows gazing 3 feet away from our window in early morning. The building itself blended in the landscape and had a spectacular view to sun rise from the Pacific Ocean. The food was simply supreme - delicious, healthy, and well portioned. The...

We were told to expect modest accommodation on Easter Island. explora Rapa Nui was very good on all counts. Accommodation was very good, food was of high quality and the standard was far better than we had been advised.

Not only do you get to see a side of Easter Island that you don't get from National Geographic, you get to know and experience life and history on the island. If you love history and going on hikes, Explora has the tours and packages for you.

Facility is good, the price includes all excursions. We were there at the low season. No host no manager. Although the excursion guide was excellent, but our boat trip was cancelled due to 'weather condition' which was not true. We saw other boats were out. No alternative trips was offered. Swimming pool and the spa were closed with no reason....

We paid in full for a four-night stay at Explora Rapa Nui. At least one month before our stay, the Hotel experienced a fire which forced it to close. We were never informed. In fact, we found out about the problem from other travelers who had read about it on Trip Advisor. This was when we were already in Chile...

explora Rapa-nui was the perfect place to stay while visiting the exotic Easter Island. It is a beautiful modern hotel in a lovely setting with an eco-friendly attitude. No plastic in this place. Loved staying there and especially loved the picnic lunch we had at the beach. A special bonus was the Southern Cross in the night sky. Excellent guide...

The property is beautiful. The staff is attentive and gracious. We were with a group of 15 and all of us were really happy having stayed here. It's probably the best place on the island to stay. And we must mention the bartender, Andy. He was exceptionally great.

It took a little while to adjust to this place having come from the chic Explora Patagonia It is far more rustic but at the same time very fitting to the Easter Island Culture The food was actually better than Patagonia and must have been down to an excellent chef As others have mention the excursion side appears to be...
