Stayed at the Hotel Vai Moana for 3 nights with my husband and daughter. The staff - especially Pillar was very helpful and set up 2 great tours for us to see the Moai and the Island. She also booked a show for us Kari Kari which was fun. We were greeted at the airport and taken to the hotel.... More

Me and my 5 years old son stayed for a week there, is a very quite and peaceful place, so close for everyplace, so, you don´t need to take taxi to the downtown. Also you can walk to see the museum and the national park Rapa Nui. Breakfast was good, and the staff very nice and helpful.

The hotel has very nice bungalows that are not well sound proofed, but the layout is very nice and spacious. The common areas are comfortable and have a good-enough internet that is limited by the island's internet availability. The internet is advertised as free, but there is a US$ 6 dollar charge good for the whole stay. The staff is... More

A perfect hotel for a perfect trip. We have spent 5 days in Hotel Vai Moana and we where totally satisfied. A nice, very clean and inspirier place to stay. This trip to Easter Island in Hotel Vai Moana is unforgetable, so I created a Facebook Group named Easter Island Tourists. Please leave your comment.

I loved the decor and layout of the hotel and the fact that the rooms are individual bungalows. The decor inside the rooms looked like someone's home - I wasn't a fan. The breakfast was good (especially the homemade donuts). But once they run out of something, they don't replace it, unless its bread. The coffee was instant and sucked.... More

Stayed 4 nights in a standard double just after Christmas. Standard is the operative word. It was fine, bed was ok, room wasn't filthy. But at the end of December it is quite hot, and with no a/c we needed to request an extra pedestal fan (from the owner, although you would have thought I was asking for his first... More

It’s very good cozy hotel for Easter Island. Please remember that on Easter island everything is very simple: hotels, rent cars etc. We found it as very attractive and authentic part of our vacation in such unique place. Yes, it’s not a luxurious hotel, but exactly what we needed to feel atmosphere and feel comfortable. Staff is friendly, breakfast average,... More

I stayed here for 9 nights whilst exploring Easter Island. The rooms are clean but a little basic. There's no airconditioning or TV but a small fridge is provided. I took a travel kettle plus tea and coffee, bought some milk in town which I kept in the fridge. This was an absolute life saver for me when I came... More
