The grounds are really beautiful, we could watch the sunset over the ocean from our room.
Becki and Patricia are super nice, and so are the maids.

Being concerned with the environment, we loved the solar hot water system as well as the recycling bins. We understand that there are no sewage on the island and therefore that we couldn't throw the toilet paper in the toilet bowl but in a trash (although we felt annoyed for the maid who had to deal with it).

The room was large, receives lots of light, the terrace is great to enjoy the sunset.
Breakfast is nice, served in a room, already on the table. There's fresh guava juice, fruit salad, bread and jam. There's also ham, cheese, coffee and we had pineapple pie or eggs once.

On the downside, we found the bathroom to be outdated, the toilet seat was weird, the floor was dirty in the corners, the fridge was rusty but worked, the bed was not comfortable (too soft but of course, some might like it) and for people who want to watch TV, it's very old and small. We shouldn't "complain" about that because we are aware that it's a very isolated island. We also camp so it's not that we're fancy people. I believe it might be because we had come from another place where we couldn't stay the whole time and those things were the exact opposite.

Overall I really enjoyed my stay here. Peaceful location, away from the main town street meant it was fabulous for star gazing and listening to the sound of the ocean. Rooms were very big and each had a terrace and a private safe. The bd was very comfortable and the breakfast was ok, something different every day but plenty of fruit and fruit juice. The rooms aren't soundproof so you hear the dogs and the cockerels and anything else that is going on late into the night but I doubt anywhere here is any different.
I liked being away from the main strip and the walk home was fine (take a torch at night) although you do have to pass the cemetery but that itself is a sight to behold! It's also a great location for being able to quicky go and watch the sunset. I went most nights.
Sometimes it was hard to find any staff to help you out or ask questions but I guess that would be my only complaint. This magical island is small and easy enough to figure out on your own!

Good value for money given the cost of the other places on the island, nothing here is cheap!

Escaping from the unbearable, claustraphobic Kaimana Inn, we were relieved and impressed to find Mana Nui Inn, a gem. Comfortable, very clean, bright, great service, peaceful, private, the sound of the ocean, gentle breezes, GREAT location, and even a beautiful view from our porch! And all for less money than we were being charged at the dark, stifling dump we ran from. This inn delivers what it promises, something that I, as a travel consultant, really appreciate.

Patricia, the manager, was at the airport to meet & greet me and a group of 4 Spanish guys who were staying at the cabins. On arrival at Mana Nui Inn, we were given a "welcome drink" of fresh pawpaw juice which was so refreshing after the flight. From my cabin, I could hear the waves breaking on the shore, and from the balcony, I could see the moai at Tahai Complex - magical! First impressions of the accommodation - very homely island-style decor, very clean (floors smelled of bleach), wonderful tropical garden. There was a bar fridge in the room - a nice surprise! Location - easy walk to main street and restaurants, but if walking back at night, it helps if you have a torch. Breakfast was such a treat! In the 5 days I was there, the menu varied and there were bread rolls, fresh fruit juice, fresh fruit salad with a dollop of cream, a couple of slices of ham and cheese, home-made jam, pastry drizzled with caramel sauce - enough variety and a very tasty breakfast. The fresh food comes from organically grown fruit/veg/eggs from Patricia's family's farm. If I ever come back to Rapa Nui, I would stay here again without hesitation. The staff kept the rooms clean & the gardens tidy. My only negative point would be that the ensuite was small - it was fine for me, being of petite build, but may be an issue for others. However, the accommodation was good value considering prices of other properties on the island and its location in relation to the town centre.

One evening, I went to the Victor Ika cultural show and discovered Patricia's 2nd job, a beautiful dancer in the troupe! The dance & music are not to be missed - very energetic & entertaining. Another evening, Patricia invited guests for a BBQ and we all threw in some money into a kitty to buy steak, chicken, sausages, bread rolls & wine. Patricia made a few large dishes of salads and we had a huge meal. It was a lovely evening under the starry skies and we all enjoyed the BBQ, wine & socialising. Now, where else in the world would a hotel manager initiate this sort of spur of the moment function for guests?

We enjoyed our stay at Mana Nui, great service for a good price (we were a little shocked at Easter Island accommodation prices). The rooms were comfortable with good showers. The breakfast was really nice - fab juice.

We highly recommend staying here.

After several schedule changes and delays (weather, construction at the Mateveri Airport, and schedule changes by LAN Chile) we finally made it to Easter Island. Patricia (owner's daughter) met us at the airport, greeted us with the customary (and beautiful) leis, provided a brief tour of Hanga Roa with several restaurant recommendations, and delivered us to our triple-bed room/cabin at the Mananui Inn. The room was equipped with 3 double beds, small television, refrigerator, fan, and private bath (with plenty of hot water). Full kitchen facilities are available at the end of the building. Outside the room had a small porch with table and chairs overlooking a nice garden. The Inn is situated in the Tahai District, next to the Tahai Complex, which is an excellent first site to explore and enjoy a sunset. We visited this site twice during our stay. The Inn is situated away from the center of town but most restaurants and shops aren't more than a 15 minute walk. We rented a vehicle from Patricia ($60 U.S. per day), it was a Daihatsu similar to a Suzuki Samarai. Breakfast at the Inn was much more than the usual continental breakfasts I've had elsewhere. Each morning was a different main dish, fruit juice, rolls, coffee (nescafe), ham and cheese. We found there to be enough that we made sandwiches for lunch while out exploring. Our 4-night stay was a great experience and I recommend the Mananui Inn to others.
