The good: - very lovely environment: characteristic buildings, right next to sea, cute bar and swimming pool - very very genuine friendly and helpful staff the bad: - potentially unsafe: (please see my photos) there is no lock on the door to balcony. The sliding screen door is only secured by a latch, and the door came off easily when... More

As far as we know, this is the only hotel situated near the commercial center of the island. But we had hard time finding "Aqua Hotel Molokai." The receptionist told us the hotel is now one of Aqua hotel chain, but the name of the hotel is still Hotel Molokai. It's not fancy(nothing is fancy in Molokai), very basic. But... More

Molokai has just become my favorite Hawaiian Island and the Hotel Molokai is my favorite hotel. The price is a little more than you will be used to paying for a similar property else where but this is not elsewhere remember, Location, Location, Location. It is on ocean with a great view, a small but serviceable pool, a wonderful bar... More

As a pastor my wife and I had not taken a real vacation in 20 years our dedication to church and Community is our mission. So Molokai was The answer to our prayer. It was very peaceful and laid back.Our... More

As the only "hotel" on the island, we weren't sure what to expect, but this property was great! Nice rooms, staff was very helpful & friendly, located right on the shore of the ocean, just a super place.... The small bar they have was by the pool, and low key, and overall the grounds are very cool..... Definitely hope to... More

Took my wife for a quick "staycation" to Molokai, our first time. Like everyone else we did our research with past reviews and rather than deal with renting a condo, we decided to book at the only hotel in Molokai. We absolutely LOVED our 2 day stay at the property. Yes, the hotel rooms are retro bungalows and fits perfectly... More

Molokai was described as the real Hawaii and we really enjoyed our time there. It put a totally different spin on our trip and we were glad to have ventured away from the main tourist spots. Everyone we met was super friendly!

I have to agree with another reviewer who said this place is special. It truly is! First, its location on Molokai. My spouse and I chose Molokai for part of our vacation because we heard it was the "real deal" -- Hawaii without the giant hotels and time-shares and strip malls and boatloads of tourists. Hawaii as it used to... More
