Thiis hotel is quite new (from late 2010) and gives a good fresh impression with carefully chosen copies of local art used to decorate outside walls. It is set back from the road, is entirely single-storey, and built to suit the climate with spacious rooms and properly equipped en-suite bathrooms with genuinely fluffy towels. Rooms open on one side towards reception and breakfast and on the other to a small pretty garden with flower-shaped swimming-pool. Pool is small but very pleasant. Choice of wood for the room ceilings can make them seem a little dark but the overall effect is excellent. Breakfast is a good version of the normal Chilean fare but with plenty of fresh fruit and juices (naturally!) and eggs cooked to order. It is reasonable walking distance from the town with access to various restaurants and you can expect good advice from reception. (Tip: try the nearby Kotaru Japanese Bistro). Like most of Hanga Roa, the hotel is a short hiking distance from the volcano Rano Kao and the ceremonial village of Orongo: other trips need transport. Transport to and from the nearby airport is provided free. Note that cash payment is expected and if you book in USD you may get slightly better value by paying in USD - this seems to be generally true for Easter Island.
