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.
