We stayed at Explora Rapa Nui for four days in January. The accommodations were lovely and fitting for the environment and in a quiet area. The staff was superb and attentive. They noticed from my husbands passport that it was his birthday and commented on it....he didn't want a fuss and said to please not sing, etc. However, they discretely...

My son and I took a trip of a lifetime from U.K. To Easter Island. I am sure we would have enjoyed whatever the accommodation but Explora Rapa Nui enhanced the visit in so many ways: excursion to every part of the Island we walked for a day round the least explored area, picnic prepared by the hotel, after a...

My friend and I stayed here for two of our three nights on Easter Island and it is, by far, the best resort on the island. The excursion program is a well-oiled machine -- the guides do a great job of putting you into groups of like fitness/interests, and they take you to the most important sites on the island....

Explora is all about going out and being adventurous. In my wildest dreams I would have crawled into caves but our guide provided such a degree of comfort that I did. Rapa Nui was our third Explora and we are looking forward to our fourth one within the year. It is all about the guides, the atmosphere and the service...

This was our third stay at an Explora in Chile and I must say that it exceeded all our expectations. Having decided to make the long trip from Santiago to Rapa Nui and back, we were pampered and given a marvelous experience during our 3 night stay. The team of guides is extraordinarily well prepared and organized and all our...

This Island is very impressive as it is. And Explora makes it even more incredible. From the waitresses, chefs to the fantastic energetic guides, it was all 100% awesome. The rooms are modern, clean with a lot of space. The view is facing the sea for everybody. There is a shop where you can buy things all day. Mainly outdoor...

First stop on our honeymoon and it was just amazing. Frieddly staff, beautiful surroundings, delicious food, exiting trips for all levels and shapes and the best pisco sour in the Pacific Ocean. The show in the night is also a must do

We spent the first week of 2016 at explora Rapa Nui (could not get a room for New Year's eve since we tried to book too late). This is the second explora hotel we visit (the first one was the amazing explora Patagonia) so our expectations were quite high. This hotel did not disappoint. Of course, the experiences in both...

Explora Rapa Nui is located slightly away from the main town, with stunning surroundings. It is an experience that is once in a lifetime (though I'd love to do it twice!). Rooms are very comfortable, not huge but with plenty of storage space, the shower is very good especially at the end of a day hiking, and the bed is...

A&K booked us in this wonderful hotel for three nights. We had a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful and our guide was exceptional. The menu changed every day and we enjoyed every meal. We will stay here the next time we visit Easter Island. We will highly recommend it to our friends.
