Had 4 nights at Explora Rapa Nui and had a truly excellent experience. Hotel is comfortable, staff friendly, excursions and guides excellent. When we visited, there were only a dozen or so guests in total, so excursions could be tailored to our particular interests. It was also the right amount of time to see all the major sights. Minor criticism...

We stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon. We arrived in on the evening flight from Santiago and stayed at a different hotel for the first night. The manager from Explora came to pick us up at 12pm the following day. Check in was smooth and once being shown our room, we went for lunch in the dining room....

This is a luxurious hotel with incredible views! The rooms were clean and luxurious. The staff was professional, polite and friendly ; they made every accommodation you requested. The guides provided a very comprehensive overview of your excursion options allowing you to choose what best suited you. The only reason I didn't give this a "5" is because of the...

Up front, while there are things that the hotel could do better, you will not find a better all-around hotel for you on Easter Island. The hotel is stunning with great food, amazingly comfortable beds, very powerful shower, modern but green style. The hotel is all-inclusive: meals (which are amazing - the home made bread is mind-blowing), all beverages including...

We had been to explora Atacama and last year combined Patagonia and Rapa Nui. We were at Rapa Nui on New Years Eve. It was a unique place to be and the staff went all out. Beautiful hikes across the island, snorkeling was amazing and always beautiful scenery.

Fabulous, far exceeded expectations, every room has a beautiful scenic view across to the hills and the sea. Sunrise from bed was unmissable. Simple wood and concrete sounds awful but well designed and stylish Separate toilet/bidet, separate shower/ bath - be aware shower is over the bath - slippy Double sinks, comfy bed and very edgy upmarket toiletries and gifts...

Before saying anything about Explora, I have to mention that Rapa Nui is a unique destination and a great experience. Nature and history combined in a perfect way! So glad I have been there, it was on the top of my Bucket list and it reached every expectation. Having said that, I cannot think of a better place to stay...

I just spent 5 nights at the Explora Hotel on Easter Island. The Explora offers an all inclusive experience complete with expert guides (Estefan was fantastic!), transportation, great rooms and good food. The island is a hiker's paradise for people who enjoy the outdoors, rain or shine. The most extensive hike is a 10 mile journey across the northern coast,...

Went with the family (two young kids under 10) and loved every minute. Modern hotel with all the amenities you need. Fantastic guides. All alcohol, food and excursions are included (not cheap) but we took advantage of every excursion and came away with fond memories.

Our lodge was the first in South America to obtain LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the United States Green Building Council.Our lodge, which opened in December 2007, was built on 9.6 Hectares (23.7 Acres) of land situated on a hill in the Te Miro Oone area, and overlooks the ocean. This is in south-eastern Rapa Nui, 8 kilometers (4.9 Miles) from Hanga Roa, the most populated part of the island.All of the 30 rooms, which extend to the north and south from a central building, have excellent ocean views. The lodge has welcoming indoor spaces which integrate aspects of the local culture.The design is intended to have minimal impact on its surroundings. The lodge is built on a site which is inappropriate for agricultural use and has no archaeological remains. The flora surrounding the lodge has been maintained intact. ... more   less
