The location is great, on the water (no beach) and near town, but the rooms are a let-down. There is no air-con, but large fans in the cathedral ceiling (we were upstairs) kept the room passable except when the sun shone directly in from the west. Knowing all this, the staff didn't have the sense to open the French windows...

The Aqua hotel, known locally as the Molokai Hotel (that is what the signpost reads) is indeed ‘quaint’. The rooms are small. There is no a/c and rooms on the ground floor can be hot. Only the rooms facing the sea have any breeze. A continental breakfast is included (the papaya is excellent). The staff is very friendly and helpful....

This is a very nice, low key place with very friendly staff. The thing that really made it was the room we were in, which was an ocean front room. Well worth the additional cost. The room did not have ac, but didn't need it due to the great breeze through the room and ceiling fan. Although the room was...

This is a review of the Hotel Molokai, not the restaurant (which burned down, but they are busy replacing it). We absolutely LOVED our stay here!! Everything was perfect, from the location-- right on the water but near town and within an easy drive of all island attractions-- to the very friendly and helpful staff, to our ultra comfortable oceanfront...

Can't say enough good things about the staff and Michael the GM. We got to meet Michael during the GM reception on our first night and that set it up from there. Even though the property is aged, they have done a great job of keeping it clean and making small upgrades to keep it comfortable. We paid extra for...

This hotel is definitely not a luxurious resort. The rooms have no AC and look straight out of 1975. Food options are very limited and somewhat pricey. However, if you can get past those little details, you'll have a wonderful time here. My husband and I were supposed to go to Molokai in June, but our flight got delayed hours...

Cute hotel and great location, but the helpful staff made the vacation even better. Fun music and good food (best on Molokai) in Friday night, plus a nice pool. We got the scoop on beaches and restaurants, and I felt like the team working there enjoyed themselves. Molokai has a totally different vibe than the other islands and you fall...
