A cheerful welcome to the Hotel by charming staff is the nearest to service that one will get on Easter Island. There is no luxury but a perfectly adequate bed with a shower which works a bit and a fabulous view over the sea. Wild horses drop by occasionally to join the swimmers and have a drink. Some bugs but nothing potentially dangerous.
Church on Sunday morning (properly attired) is enchanting as nearly the entire population is there dressed in their finest and singing their hearts out.
Breakfast is very simple with a slice of 'shiny' ham if you want more than cornflakes and orange squash.
Picnics supplied for explorers were adequate but do not expect anything outstanding as this is an island a long way away from anywhere and I saw no crops being grown.
The Moas are outstanding - mysterious and curiously cold. How have they survived?
Dinner was possible at a couple of tiny restaurants in the town and they made great caipirinhas!
Three days and nights are sufficient as there are few, if any, amenities.
The island is beautiful with charming residents and the enigmatic Moas. That is all you need really.More
