I've been very satisfied with my stay in this hotel. The hotel is located near the main attractions of Hanga Roa, that include the ocean road, a couple of ahu sites and the main restaurants. The rooms are clean and spacious and the breakfast is very plentiful with fruit, bread, ham, cheese, cakes, juices, etc. At the reception there is...

The Tupa Hotel is a family-run hotel that provides clean rooms, a meal, transportation to and from the airport, and information on anything you need while in Rapa Nui. We booked the hotel far enough in advance to follow up with further emails to insure our rooms were confirmed and they were. We were met at the airport very pleasantly,...

It is a rather simple accomodation though staf is friendly and helpful. The first room that we were given was simple but nice - ground floor with a balcony door leading to a nice lawn. It is nice to stay there if you are a solo traveler but if not, you might experience some discomfort because there is not any...

We had booked this hotel from Expedia and shortly after they emailed us to know which flight we were on. Upon arrival in Hanga Roa Airport, the shuttle was waiting for us and being in low season, we all were upgraded to rooms with view of the sea. The hotel has no pool. There is no air conditioning, but the...

I booked, confirmed the reservations 3 days before arrival and when my friends and I got to Easter Island it was hell. We had to beg for shuttle, since the guy didn´t have our names and when we finally got to the hotel front desk they said we cancelled the reservation and there´s nothing for them to do since there...

Hotel room was basic and very clean. Our room faced the gardens so we didn't have to listen to the noisy roosters that seem to gather in the courtyard. My main complaint was the noisy Italians that invaded the hotel on the last two nights we were there. Got little to no sleep those nights. There didn't seem to be...

I stayed at Tupa Hotel for 4 nights over Easter 2013. I had one of their cheapest rooms which was quite serviceable for my needs. I am Argentino so I've stayed in some awful rat holes over the years. But you get what you pay for. All I need is a bed and a shower when I am traveling, and...

While lodging is relatively expensive on Easter Island, and while there are definitely more and larger insects there than many other places, the Tupa Hotel is run-down and poorly managed. My initial impression was excellent, based on the quick response time and friendly message from reception when I booked, and throughout my stay the receptionists and guides/transfer staff were great...

Thank you for your review. We always appreciate hearing from our guests about their stay so as to improve our services for future visitors. First, I apologize you had to wait more than 5 minutes to be attended at the front desk. We are not heavily staffed, and at times our receptionists need to attend to more than one thing...

We had been optimistic that previous reviewers complaining of building works would mean that the renovations would be complete by the time of our arrival. Wrong! The work that had been completed was low budget. Room security amounted to placing a screw through two holes in the patio door! There was no facility to make or chill drinks in the...

The hotel itself is what I expected. Basic and clean. Key to note here is that everything is expensive in Easter Island and you should calibrate your expectations accordingly. The room is basic yet very clean. No airconditoning. I was a bit worried at first but that was dissipated when the weather was cooler upon sunset. Walls are paper thin....
