The hotel is located within 5 minutes walking from the airport. Which makes coming and leaving easy but also puts it 20 minutes walking from the city. You can order a taxi for 2000-3000 pesos. The reception staff was helpful and very friendly when we asked for advise. Unfortunately during our 5 day stay the wifi only worked for 1... More

The hotel Manutara is a very short walk from the airport, but with only one plane a day, noise is not a problem. It's a 15 minute walk into Hanga Roa town so very quiet at night. The hotel has about 20 rooms set in attractive gardens and around a small pool. The rooms are a reasonable size, clean and... More

Unless you go big dollars, choices are limited in Easter Island. This hotel is family run and they are very friendly. The location is walkable for the airport and town. It has a pool and basic wifi. Luxury it is not, but a comfortable friendly place to stop for a few nights.

Very close to the airport, could almost have walked except for large roller bags on cobblestone roads. Room was very basic although large. Soft mattress, air conditioner - no remote/control unit provided but fan did the job. No hot water in the morning in the shower. Standard European buffet breakfast. Internet in reception and foyer although pretty slow. Pool was... More

Lovely place to stay with a pool and spacious seating area around the pool and reception. The gardens were beautiful and very relaxing. Good breakfast with lots of fruit. Very helpful reception staff. Thought the rooms very basic initially but the surroundings grew on you and I enjoyed staying there, The only real problem was the location. A 20min walk... More

Clean and spacious rooms, very well kept pool and garden, friendly staff. Just perfect for the price. Just one downside, breakfast is not the best, but good enough coffee, tea and fresh bread and local avocado. 2 minutes walk from the airport, 20 minutes walk to town. Enjoyed every minute of out stay!

We found the Manutara clean and tidy. Breakfast buffet was quite reasonable, with cold meats and fruits, and good bread. No air conditioning in this hotel, and room was HOT, hard to sleep at night. Nice courtyard pool area. Except for manager, staff did not have much english, but tried hard to please. Main drawback is that it is located... More

This place is so friendly, the younger staff don't speak English but you can get by as they try their best. It is as clean as you would hope for. It is simple, slightly dated decor is cheap and cheerful. Their toasted sarnies and tea are hard to beat for a light meal at $5pp. Breakfast is simple but good... More

“I stayed in number 6, very next to the pool and lobby , but for sure they have plenty of rooms and similar.All are very quiet.”

“We downgraded the room because it had no air conditioning and was HOT--never cooled off at night despite having a breeze blow in the bathroom window and out the front window. But at least the windows had screens! Ask at check-in for the coolest room, if they have any!”
