Chez Maria Goretti

Reviewed 18 August 2014

Stayed four nights and had an excellent experience. The hotel staff was attentive and made arrangements for tours and rentals (as probably would any hotel here). They were always friendly. The lobby and dining area are unique and decorated with artifacts, photos etc that provide a good atmosphere. The grounds are well kept and have beautiful plants all over. The swimming pool is a bonus. Although my visit was in winter, I enjoyed a nice afternoon swim. The breakfast is ample, with a variety of breads, meats, cheese, fruit, yogurt, etc., buffet style.
The hotel is also in a great location, just about 15 minute walk from the town center, so it is a little quieter and secluded. They also provide airport transport included. But the great thing is that it is really close to the moai at Tahai, 5 minue walk at most. You can easily walk down for sunset and great views, and also in the early morning when the light is perfect to Shen on the front of the moai. The museum is close also, just a few steps from the grounds of Tahai.
I'd definitely return here.

We had a very nice stay at Chez Maria Goretti this past May. We were met at the airport by Maka, a delightful member of the hotel staff who spoke great English and helped arranged a car rental and assisted us with anything we needed. She even drove us back to the airport at the end of our stay without even us having to ask. The hotel is clean and set in a beautiful tropical setting. Although just a bit too chilly to use at this time of year, there is a nice little pool and outside bar only 20 meters from the main building. Our room, though a bit sparse, was great for the price. Given the location 2,300 miles from the mainland, it was sufficient for our needs and we would definitely return to Chez Maria, if ever given a chance to visit Easter Island again. The breakfast was veried and quite tasty, and was more than enough to get us through the morning and afternoon. The hotel is located in a great area of the island, less than a 10 minute walk to the famous Moai of Ahu Tahai. From Ahu Tahai it's just another 10 minute walk to the main part of Hanga Roa, an area with several restaurants, shops, and stores.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the building away from the main complex that is even more quiet than the rest of t...

I loved my experience staying at Chez Maria Goretti. Maka, the woman in charge, was fantastic. She met us at the airport with flower leis, helped us arrange a rental jeep, and was just so very nice! The morning breakfast was lovely. The hotel was located about a ten minute walk to the nearest Moai (the ones that are best for sunset picts) and the waterfront, and downtown was a fifteen-minute walk. Don't worry when you walk, even late at night. Yes, it's dark, but the dogs are all friendly, and no crime. The hotel is lovely. I would highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing stay.

Staff was wonderful, the setting and grounds of this small hotel are beautiful, as is the pool area (nice to have it after a day of touring in the sun). Breakfast was basically European (we understand most tourists come from Chile and Europe, so this is definitely not a negative). Met us at airport on arrival, and graciously called taxis or made reservations (show and dinner) when requested.

Room was adequate in size (double and single beds). No dresser, no hand towels or wash cloths. Adequate closet space.

Judging from the comments of others who stayed at different hotels, this one is a bargain.

Would gladly return!

I had a wonderful time at this hotel, which even loaned us a converter so we could charge the camera battery. Like all of the other island hotels, it had no air conditioning, but didn't need it--there was a nice fan in the room. Taxis were readily called, Parking was adequate for the guests who rented cars on the island. Breakfasts were traditional European, but the cook would make eggs if asked. Lovely small pool. The bar never opened up, but we didn't ask, so maybe there was a trick to that. I felt like I was in a tropical paradise with all the lovely flowers. Rooms very basic, no wash cloths or hand towels or glasses. Bed very comfortable.

This time I was there for 2 weeks for diving with ORCA dive center and sightseeing. Hotel has great improvements comparing with what I have seen before. Those improvements are free WIFI, swimming pool and much better buffet breakfast. The same blooming garden, the same friendly crew. I enjoyed it very much.

Room Tip: Ask for good WIFI reception. I was staying close to the office, so WIFI was OK.

We were two couples staying here three nights when exploring Easter Island end of 2013.
Nice bungalows rowed together. Clean and big enough roooms. Small but nice and clean pool. Healthy well-tasting breakfasts. Close to the sea and three moais and approx 10 - 15 min walk to "downtown" Hanga Roa. All staff very serviceminded and helpful.Airport pickup/return.
Highly recommnedable and affordable when staying in this nice and remote island.

Room Tip: The rooms down towards the pool was in very good and clean condition.
