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.

Very underrated!

My wife & I stayed here Sept 16-18. First, Molokai is an amazing place - a hidden gem among the Hawaiian Islands. The scenery is beautiful, from the beaches to the world’s highest sea cliffs to the rain forests. We did the Kalaupapa Peninsula tour & had a terrific experience. We hiked down & back up (1700 ft elev. change & about 2.5-3 miles each way) & took the guided group tour. It is not an easy hike, but well worth the effort. Rick was our tour guide & did a fabulous job. His passion for this place & love of Hawaiian culture really shows through & he is very knowledgeable & fun and did just a wonderful job. The history behind the Kalaupapa leper colony & Father Damien’s work there is so inspiring & the place is stunning. You will be hard- pressed to find a more beautiful beach on earth. Now, about Hotel Molokai- our room is (I’m writing this in the room) simple yet clean & functional. The resort is right on the ocean & the beach & ocean view is amazing. We had dinner tonight at the hotel restaurant sitting out by the beach with Tiki torches burning & a slight ocean breeze blowing. My wife & I ordered a bruschetta appetizer- the best we’ve ever had & then both ordered grilled salmon with potatoes au-gratin & steamed vegetable sides. We both love salmon so we know when it’s good- this was fabulous & the potatoes were unreal. Our server was a local young lady who had gone to Utah for college & come back to Molokai to teach elementary school to serve the kids in her hometown & works at the restaurant part time. She was also super & added so much to our dinner enjoyment . Our experience here has been such a joy & we are so glad we visited Molokai & stayed at Hotel Molokai. As I told our server, this island & hotel are both highly underrated. We recommend both very highly! If you want to experience Hawaii outside all the typical tourist “stuff”, come here- aloha!

Not bad place to stay.

This hotel has a unique local architecture and it’s located right on the beach. There’s not many places to stay on Molokai and this is one of them. The reason I gave it a 4 star is because it’s kind of pricey for a very average hotel. The room is clean but we couldn’t find the light switch and had to pull the bed out looking for it. We realized that the lamps were unplugged and once plugged in, work.

The people are friendly and respectful. Ashly at the front desk was very pleasant and courteous! We had no problems with the room or amenities and we loved the Friday night craft fair! We plan to return soon!! Mahalo nui

not an aloha property

Promised and paid for an oceanview room and said it was not available (after check in and having gone up to my room and called to complain). Was not a very friendly, but only rushed check-in experience and not told about the hotel amenities, nor offered help up with my luggage up the stairs to my 2nd floor room. Outdated property. And didn't feel the aloha at this "resort." Staff didn't seem to like tourists. Also, not really a beach at the hotel (and murky waters), so must have a car to drive to the beach. Hotel shuttle is $25 each way from the airport. Friendly shuttle driver, only when you tip her. Or else she won't help with your luggage. Don't recommend this place, nor the island itself. No ride shares nor public transportation. It's old Hawaii, and locals are very protective of their island. Businesses are close on Sundays and holidays.

On Molokai its great! Good food, nice rooms on the water.

I stayed two weeks and had access to all the amenities with close drive to all the island. Ask for a suit or room with a desk. Its worth the expense. Poke Bowl is very good as is the salad selection. Eat pool side and the lunge in the hammocks.
