We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is two blocks from the airport entrance, so an easy walk even with luggage in tow (save the 3000 peso taxi fee if it isn't raining). Fortunately LAN flies 787s into the airport so you don't hear the plans land or takeoff, even though you are essentially across the road from the runway. The...

We had three nights at Hotel Puku Vai and we loved our stay. Jarkko, the manager, is the most helpful host you can have. He and his staff, especially Sandra, had a lot of suggestions and arranged everything we wanted to do. The breakfast is very good, you can order eggs any style. The rooms are very clean and spatious....

I have been traveling to Easter Island since 1988. This fantastic tranquil family run Hotel is the only place I will stay on Rapa Nui. Best value for the price. Quiet with modern Air Conditioning. No fans and mosquitos. Great pool. Excellent breakfasts. Five minute walk from Airport.

Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, great pool, very good breakfast. Evening food only available if pre ordered, but there are many lovely restaurants in Hanga Roa, so do try them! Walking into town took about twenty minutes, just right.

The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the airport. The refreshing welcome drink was quite welcome as despite the short walk, it was quite warm. The walk to town is about 20 minutes, but I do have long legs. We did rent scooters for one of the days and it is literally a 3 minute ride from town to...

This Hotel is just ok; it is located far enough from Hanga Roa to make it unwalkable. The rooms are dated and a bit drab. My room was located on a side near a neighbor with a rooster who crowed from 3:00 am through noon. Sleep was difficult. The Hotel has a dining room but no one seemed to eat...

Thank you for choosing Hotel PUKU VAI, Easter Island! Naturally, we're sorry roosters did bother you. However, you might consider roosters as a part of the Easter Island experience (I'd say there's no corner on the island where you're not accompanied by them). In case you do some tours, make sure you ask your tour guide about their origin and...
