But with only one flight arriving and leaving each day you'll be lucky to hear it. After all the horror stories in reviews of other hotels in Hanga Roa rest assured that you will be clean and comfortable in this one. My room was, and has been kept, clean; it is well maintained; it is wonderfully spacious; and like all rooms the patio doors open on the central garden and pool - but with only about 14 rooms this is almost always quiet. The air conditioning is quiet and efficient, which is important if you do not feel safe leaving the patio doors open overnight. There is a minibar but no kettle. Admittedly the facilities are a bit limited: for example the restaurant does not serve lunch, and does not serve dinner unless 6 guests request it the day before, but most guests seem to prefer to eat in one of Hanga Roa's many restaurants anyway. The reception staff are most helpful eg in recommending restaurants, and speak enough English. The breakfast buffet is limited but includes eggs cooked to order, ham, chorizo, breads, cereal, yoghurt, fruit - in short, something for everyone. As you hear chickens, and cocks crowing, from well before dawn, the eggs must be fresh! The wifi is a bit slow but that is pobably the local service. Tip: I had to change the email accont setting for outgoing email to SSL Security in order to be able to send emails from my smartphone. While close to the airport the hotel is about a mile from the town centre on level roads. If you do not want to walk the receptionist can get a taxi by phone within minutes, and there is a flat fee to anywhere in Hanga Roa of just 2,000 pesos. Weirdly the fare to the airport, closer at just 400 yards but too far to drag a case along the road, is more, but still very modest.
