Hotel Molokai features open-air, oceanfront bungalows located on exotic Kamiloloa Beach, adjacent to Hawaii's only barrier reef. This hotel is the ideal setting for an authentic Hawaiian island experience and the perfect location to explore Molokai, where the natural beauty is astounding.

Looking to "get off the grid?" Molokai holds fast to its natural roots, offering pristine beaches, the steepest cliffs in Hawaii, a fascinating history, and absolutely no high rises. Known as the birthplace of Hula, it has been deemed the Friendly Isle.

Styled after a Polynesian village from a time when outrigger canoes were the only transportation, Hotel Molokai is your secret hideaway from the frantic pace of modern life. These are quaint bungalows positioned east-to-west, allowing the breezy trade winds and soothing sound of the surf to gengently lull you to sleep each night. Rooms include down comforters, internet access, mini-refrigerators, coffeemakers, and cable television.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of paradise during the day. When the sun sets, cool down with nightly poolside entertainment while dining at the popular oceanfront restaurant.

My sister and I spent 2 weeks in Hawaii. We spent the second week at Hotel Molokai. We were on the second floor with a kitchenette and extra beds. No air conditioner but we had a great breeze and a ceiling fan. We had a plumeria tree outside our balcony which was an amazing scent to wake up to every morning. The manager and staff were very helpful. Cell phone service is not always available on Molokai, especially at the hotel but they gave us free use of the hotel phone in our room for calls to anywhere in the USA (and I think Canada). The restaurant was great also...we only ate there twice because we had a kitchen and we also wanted to try other restaurants. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the water. And there is so much to do on Molokai...we took the mule tour, we drove to the west end and also to the east end. Hotel Molokai is in a great location...central to all of Molokai. And there is a bakery nearby with the most delicious taro donuts made fresh daily...they are famous for their fresh baked bread with toppings, which is good also, but I really loved the taro donuts! I really loved staying at Hotel Molokai and will probably be back...but it is a long trip from NJ.

My daughter & I just spent 7 days and 7 nights at Hotel Molokai. We were impressed with the cleanliness of our room. The beds had comfortable mattresses with pristine white linen and bedcovers. We didn't need AC because the ceiling fan and the partially screened wall to the patio kept us cool. The aromatic Plumera flowers made the resort smell wonderful. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and laying out on lawn chairs overlooking the beach/ocean. The restaurant has live music and gas torches each evening for outdoor ocean front dining. We also shopped at the local grocery store and prepared food in our kitchen. We ate these meals on our patio. We tried out a couple of the local restaurants. We even visited a nighttime bakery to try out their famous "hot bread" which is like a giant, delicious, filled pastery. We chose Molokai for its beauty and opportunity for adventures. We explored beautiful beaches on both the east and west sides. The views will take your breath away!! Most of the time, we were the only ones on the beach. At the beach, we ate a picnic lunch, read, did yoga & walked the beaches. We spent one day hiking to Kalaupapa and touring the grounds. There you will see the world's highest sea clifts. We spent a day learning about local farming and hiking to a secluded waterfall. We were able to swim in the waterfall. We spent a day snorkeling in the ocean with the sea turtles, rays (and even saw a shark). For this trip, the boat captain and dive master took us out to a reef on the southeast side of the island, about a mile from shore. It is hard to chose our favorite part of this trip but we loved swimming with the sea turtles.

Not as bad as people make it out to be...

Yes, this is not the Fairmont but a nice, homey place to stay for a few nights. Me, a prof and an architectural student stayed here for a few nights recently and liked the experience. The place has character and the staff are very kind if you treat them with respect. Too many people go here expecting the world and get disappointed. Its a clean, friendly small hotel with a nice local vibe in cool mini island style chalets. The restaurant was great placed to have a good local meal. Remember you are here to explore the island, not stay in the hotel your entire time.

I've always wanted to go to Molokai, so I felt staying at the island's one hotel would be a good idea, and we loved our experience! The wifi was a bit spotty, but use it as an opportunity to disconnect from life for a night or two! The rooms are small and you can tell that the buildings are older but have been renovated, but we found them clean and appreciated that the hotel have DVDs to rent if you wanted to just relax for the night. The grounds are covered in beautiful plumeria trees and other exotic fruits. Check out the restaurant at the hotel, we loved it!

If your looking for a 5 Star Resort this is not the place to go. However, if you are looking for a really old fashioned experience book it now! The friendliest staff in the world will greet you and help you with activities and give directions. The rooms are clean but if you want to avoid the very friendly chickens that roam the property get an upper room. I'd also recommend getting one that has air conditioning (not all do). We liked the little in room kitchenette. It came in very handy because the restuaurant was not open for breakfast. The hotel also has the best restuarant on the island. If you are up for an adventure give the Hotek Molokai a try.
