We stayed for 5 nights in bungalow 17 it was on a bit of a hill so gave us a great view of the ocean and we were away from all the other rooms so had some privacy. We went to see another hotel in town that we almost booked as it was cheaper and were glad we went for this one. We ate at the hotel the night we arrived as it was 10pm and they had a special night with bonfire and small band, it was a lovely evening and great start for our time here. The staff made us feel very welcome. The decor was fine, it is not quite as expected for the money, but this is Easter Island it is extremely remote and updating decor must be very expensive. It is out of town, and having read reviews on the amount of time taken we were prepared for a long walk into Hanga Roa, but with the ocean views, Moai, caves, the local museum, horses, friendly locals it probably took a few hours each time, not that we noticed we were too busy enjoying ourselves. The taxi's are good value for money about U$6 per ride back from town. We recommend booking up two days of excursions and if staying longer bring your driving license and hire a car distances around the island were further than we thought.
