Arriving at Easter Island late at night, we got off to a bad start when the hotel bus would not start. W e all had to get back out and remove luggage and stand around waiting while the driver arranged another van.
We stayed at Tupa Hotel for just one night. We got in very late at night and were shown to our room... the patio door could not lock and we were not comfortable with this. We requested to be moved to another room and this was arranged with little fuss.
The photos attached are of the first room.... we did not take photos of the second room we eventually stayed in.
The room we got was very very old... in particular the bathroom. It was dated and did not feel very clean. We did get hot water.
We were very tired, so showered and went straight to bed. We left before dawn, in a vehicle rented from the hotel. We missed breakfast, so cant comment on that. We returned just in time to pick up our luggage and head to the airport.
What we really liked at Tupa hotel was the staff. Maria, Jose and in particular the driver ( we didnt get his name). Transfer to and from the airport was included.
