Sergio, a retired archaeologist and the owner of the hotel, helped us with very useful information and guidance. Thanks to him, we we able to explore the island on our own, avoiding the restraints and costs of a tour.
The hotel is well located in Hanga Roa, close to the center and at a walking distance from Ahu Tautira (the best place to watch the sunset).
Unfortunately, we noticed also some shortcomings:
- no WiFi internet access in the room (as advertised when we made the reservations)
- the rooms provide the very basics, and nothing more - therefore are quite priced for the comfort provided
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tupa Hotel sits atop a small hill looking out over the West coast of the island and the town of Hanga Roa. Free WIFI is available in the lobby of the hotel. A free polynesian breakfast buffet is offered daily in the ocean view dining room. The hotel is located in a quiet area, one block from the main street and within 5 minutes walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and the coast.
