TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Hangaroa Hanga Roa
We just arrived tonight for our two night stay, but found the our room to be well appointed and with a nice view of the ocean. The facility has an eco- friendly design, and we were told they just mowed the grass on our roof. :-) Our group just had cocktails and a nice buffet dinner in the main dining room. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I met the new General Manager who said to contact him personally if there was anything we needed.
