Bicky and her daughter and son were all lovely and made us feel so welcome. The hotel itself was in a great location - overlooking the sea, five minutes away from the little beachs and shops/restaurants etc. Also, the stage were the dancing and competitions etc for the Easter Island annual festival was only a couple of minutes walk away too which was an added bonus!
The room was fine - spacious with a little fridge we could put drinks in to keep them cold. There was a TV but it only had two channels and was fuzzy - we weren't bothered though as we dont go away to sit in a hotel room and watch TV. The little cabanas are set in beautiful gardens and each have their onw little table and chairs outside the terraces to sit out on. We were really happy with this hotel. The only thing that was a bit of a negative was that we had ants in our room. Luckily they werent on our bed but there was a second single bed in the room and they had set up shop on that so if we had needed to use the second bed it would have been an issue but our bed was clear and fine. We just had to watch were we put things and make sure we didnt accidentally put any clothes or anything on the second bed. Plus I don't really think this is a bad relfection of the hotel because it was a cabana and ants get inside cabanas/chalets in lots of tropical countries so I'm sure ants were all over the island's cabanas!
Breakfast was lovely - meat, cheese, bread rolls and a freshly cooked frittata/omlette thing made by the maid. It conisted of onions corn, egg and spinach.
Also nice to be picked up and taken to the airport by Bicky. On arrival she gave us a flower necklace made from fresh flowers and on departure a shell necklace she made from shells herself! A lovely touch!
