We are traveling in a group of two couples, stayed 5 days and 4 nights in Tupa and had many good experiences.
First of all, way before our arrival.. we had frequent contacts with the receptionist (Maria Jose) regarding hotel practicability, possible tours and prices. The communication was flawless, we had all proper information that we might need before our arrival in the easter island.
When arrived in the airport, the other receptionist (Maria) picked us up and gave us the flower necklace (so beautiful!). Maria also explained all the basic information about the city, transportation etc in Hanga Roa. The hotel itself is located within walking a distance to mostly everything in Hanga Roa. Simply ask the receptionist anything you need, she'll be happy to give you tips and suggestions during your visit!
Our room has an ocean view, and a small sitting area to enjoy the view. The room has a king double bed, clean, tidy, 24 hours hot water, has refrigerator, fan, and has this unique towel folding in a different shape every day..(a refreshing touch! one day a swan, another day a flower, etc). Although the wifi was not always working in the room, it worked most of the time in the lobby or the breakfast area.
The breakfast has plenty of choice; variety of breads, sweet cakes, fruits, cereal, and juice are among the common. During the day, we asked for hot water too for tea / and soup to the receptionist (Maria Jose) and we never had a problem! On our last day, Maria Jose took us back to the airport.
Overall we had a wonderful experience in Easter island as well as in Tupa. If we ever return to this island, we'll be staying in Tupa again.
