Hangaroa Hotel

Does anyone know if the Hangaroa Hotel will be open in April? We are hiking in Patagonia and would like to finish our trip to Chile with a little relaxation and looking for a nice place to stay.

    The hotel has been undergoing major renovations. In the last few months the hotel was occupied by the Rapanui people, in a protest regarding the island being overun by the tourists. They were nice bout it and non violent. This act halted the renovation plans for a while.

    Just recently the occupiers were removed from the property, for the second time, - and renovations continues. I cannot be sure that they will be re-opened by April, but a bit of research ahould shed more light on the hotel's plans. I know they were scheduled to re-open in January 2011, but I am not optimistic that the plan will be successful.
