This is a difficult review for me, because I think hotel Tupa has a lot of potential, but a few flaws that disturbed me a bit. I stayed at the Tupa hotel in Hanga Roa for 7 nights in April / May. At the time of the booking, this was a mid-range hotel, not the cheapest, not the most expensive....

I had to pinch myself to believe I was actually on Easter Is/Rapa Nui/Isla de Pascua... what an amazing experience! Hotel Tupa was the one booked for us by our tour company - a company that prides itself on supporting locally owned and operated businesses. We thoroughly enjoyed staying there. We were able to walk to local places (though the...

There are definite pros to this property. 1. Airport pick up was good. 2. The young guy that manned the reception desk most of the time was helpful and friendly. 3. They were happy to do laundry (for which I happily paid). 4. It's relatively cheap. BUT. 5. Hot water was a big problem. The property tried to resolve this...

I did not want to stay at a 'destination hotel'. The island was the attraction. So I chose a more basic hotel & it didn't disappoint. The room was very large & clean, I had a view to the ocean, a bathtub (lovely luxury at the end of a day of sightseeing), a good breakfast, an iron & ironing board,...

Really enjoyed our 4 night stay at this hotel. Stayed in room 20 which was spacious, clean and had a great view from the chairs just outside our patio door. The decor is a bit old but who cares it's Easter Island! The hotel staff pick you up from the airport and take you back so no messing around with...

Staff were nice, rooms basic but OK, breakfast simple but adequate but internet wifi was very poorly implemented and internet access is hopeless, not just hotel but whole island. Not the worst choice but not the best.

Only new hotels in the subtropics have a chance of being free from problems. The Tupa did very well as it is not new. If there was a scale just for subtropic hotels I'd give it a 4. Unlike other reports I found no cockroaches, had great service from the day staff (evening and night cover far less competent) and...

I wouldn't choose to stay here again..! So many cockroaches (at least 4 on the first night) The staff were extremely nice on our 3 nights we stayed here, but as soon as we checked out we got some serious attitude!!! Checkout is at 10am, but our flight didn't leave until midnight. Reception gave us the option to either leave...

Thank you for your comment Tayladenielle. I am sorry to hear you had a bad experience at our hotel. The truth is that the 30% late check out fee was not only posted in a variety of places, and you were notified of it when you arrived, but it is also considerably less than any other place in the world....

I spent four nights on Easter Island, and my room at this hotel was so basic, I checked out after one night. They lost three nights revenue, as the facilities and the service were so lacking. The "superior" room I got was very basic, with one small pillow, a cracked window, no fan, and no air flow, and was very...

Hi CarlUK999, than you for your comments. We will work on fixing the crack in the window of the room where you stayed. I am sorry we did not provide you a fan or additional pillow, but it seems that the staff was unaware that you wanted one or perhaps you did not ask? I will advise them to be...

We stayed at Tupa for 3 days, and all in all it was an ordinary, not very good hotel. We got a large room; with almost a sea view, and admittance to a garden. The room was quiet except for sounds of the waves and the crickets. Breakfast, housekeeping and atmosphere was ok. Service and kindness and knowledge of English...
