TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Manavai Hanga Roa
the hotel is picturesque, with very good location in the city, the manager(Kim Ross from USA) is one of the best you could have, the personnel friendly, but, the facilities and the rooms are almost a tragedy. you even must ask for having hot water in the morning. the owner should put more money on it, since i cant say its a cheap option
