“Easter Island treat”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

My wife and I spent 3 days on Easter Island and found the accomodations in Hotel Noi to be first class. Stayed in cabin 3, and although nice with a partial ocean view, we would recommend trying to rent the cabin higher up (Cabin 7-10) that offer breath taking views. The restaurant and staff were excellent.
Our guided tour given by Matias (and his wife Uri with Uahu tours) was arranged by the Hotel staff. His knowledge of the island history and sites was amazing and his english and spanish excellent. We strongly recommend the guided tours to get a good feel for the island and it's unbelievable history!
My wife and I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Choose the higher number cabins for a better ocean view. Restaurant area had great views and good W...

No frills but a good hotel to stay in. I spent most of my time exploring the island and would come in just to sleep. It is well located, around the corner of a main in stree in Hanga Roa. Just walk a few steps and you will have an internet spot which is not expensive to use it, and also a rental car place (oceanic). Some stores and few restaurants as well. Hotel room is big with a good size bathroom. Intenet connection is free but slow specially at hours guests are in all together using it. The internet place around the corner has it much faster. Hotel offers a airport pick-up and drop-off for $6 USD. Everything is really close by in the island.

Room Tip: I had room 121 which has a double bed and a single bed.

The location of the hotel is on the street going to the water and is 2 blocks from the main street with all the shops, restaruants and the supermarket. Everything is within 15 minutes walking distance. The staff is very freindly and can recommend great places to eat as well as some intereting places to see. The rooms are very basic. They provide towels, bar of soap, AC, hairdyer, and safty box. They clean the room daily but only change the towels every other day. The breakfast is good buttis also basic. Breads, jams, cheese, ham, and cereal with hot water for tea and cofee. There isn't a tv in the room but there is one tv in the "shared living room". Along with WIFI there. You can also get interent free at the library (2 blocks away)- otherwise be prepared to be completely disconnected from the world on this island...

The hotel is near to the church, main street, two blocks away from the beach. The breakfast is good. The room was spacious. The towels are not changed everyday.

Be aware of your arrival time because the front desk works from 8.30am. I had to wait for at least half an hour to be taken to my room.

What a wonderful, little boutique place Hotel Rapa Nui was. The customer service was always friendly and with a smile, especially, Manuel, who was always available to help out. The price was reasonable for the location and the services offered (included breakfast and Wifi) and the room / bed was comfortable. Everything was within walking distance to the town. We looked at other hotels that were more expensive, but were booked out. We were glad to end up with Hotel Rapa Nui!

Also, we had the 2-day tour visiting the Island with Samuel. He was very informative and knowledgeable with the island. Overall, our experience with Easter Island was great and would recommend anybody interest to go.

The only negative comment I would have is the bathroom seemed to be a little old and slightly dirty due to the water sometimes. Other than that, everything was wonderful.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Manuel (at reception) had great restaurant recommendations and was friendly/accomodating. Unfortunately, not even hot water for tea was available at 6 am for breakfast on the day of our early departure from the island. Our transfer to airport was 20 minutes late (we were walking out to the main street to try to hitch a ride when he arrived). Roosters were an issue if you wanted to sleep past 5:30am, but I'm sure that's the case in any of the island hotels. We had seen that WIFI was available but the signal was so poor (even at reception) that we weren't able to use at all during our five days there. The location was excellent on main street leading from church to the Hanga Roa caleta (great place for watching the sun set). Bed was surprisingly comfortable and water was wonderfully HOT! I would stay here again.

The Administrator (Manuel) it´s a very friendly guy, and get all the request that we need.
The rooms are clean.
The breakfast is the standard
The tours are very complete, but if you need another places can ask to Manuel directly.
Another good tip is to rent a Jeep and drive in to the different places with a map, the cost is US 80 per day.
I strongly recommend to ask the curanto and dance Show the first day and request a place directly, cause all the people can be n that and the reservations its only to 80 peoples.

Try the two caves place.
Try the sunset in to the fifteen moais.

Room Tip: The rooms in the bottom are quiet and have a nice view to the garden
