We stayed at the hotel for our honeymoon and it was by far the best accomodations that we had had on our entire trip. Most of the restaurants are 1-3 blocks away from the hotel and a walk to the dive stores, the Tahai complex (Moais!) and museum are 5-15 minutes. It is also close to the trails up to Rano Kau crater if you fancy hiking. Breakfasts at the hotel are truly an experience and included warm rolls, coffee, fresh made mango and guava juices, omelets, plantain pancakes, or fried eggs, fruit, and avacadoes. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms were spotless. There is also a fridge in the room, coffee, and a safe. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and Bill, the Australian owner, offered two spectacular tours to the south and to the west of the island. He is well read and provides both a historical perspective as well as some background on the culture of the island. Both tours are well worth it. In many of the reviews I have read, they mention that this place is pricey but the truth is, the island itself is not cheap (for reference, plan on spending US $30 for a single lunch entree, $14 for a small pizza, and up to $18 for a dessert!). The Taura'a was well worth it!
