Fodor's Expert Review Puku Vai

Hotu Matu'a s/n, near the airport, Easter Island, Valparaíso, 2770000, Chile

Within walking distance of the airport, Puka Vai is clean, airy, bright, and spacious. The lobby and breakfast room has high ceilings and white tile floors, while guest rooms are tastefully furnished in a modern style with comfortable beds and the occasional piece of art. Breakfast includes cooked-to-order eggs, seasonal fruit, and brewed (albeit weak) coffee. There is a pool in an interior patio (which many of the rooms look onto), with two (replica) moai that stand sentry over it and lounge chairs for sunbathing.

PROS

  • clean, efficient construction
  • owners have a good relationship with taxi companies, car rental, and tour agencies

CONS

  • 15-minute walk from town
  • few elements of Easter Island culture present
