My husband and I arrived in Molokai and quickly rented a car. After driving around the east side of the island most of the day we decided to spend our first night at Hotel Molokai. It seems no matter where you go on the island you will find roosters. They grew on me. I like the rooster much more now. A fond Molokai memory.
What I liked about the hotel was the room. We overlooked the ocean on the top floor. We had dinner in the restaurant - yes the service was slow but I do recall that we need to slow down in Molokai. So we were not expecting fast quick paced service and we certianly were not in a hurrey since we were here to relax and unwind and get our honeymoon started. The view was gorgeous. The view of Lanai and Maui. Lovely. We were entertained by the little kitty cat coming around. After a yummy dinner and a recommended wine we grabbed bottle for the pathway and headed up to our room.
For breakfast we went back down and enjoyed the most amazing hotcakes - Macadamian Hotcakes with coconut syrup. TOO DIE FOR! Housekeeping was friendly. The sparrows that joined us at breakfast were sweet creations. Molokai is not NEW YORK CITY. I love fast paced metropolitan city life. We live in one. When YOU are friendly, you get it back. Show respect for someone's home. We are not staying at the Ritz Carlton - but we were not expecting to. We didn't go to check our email and play on the internet . We went to mingle with the locals, to see Hawaii and enjoy the way the people of Molokai do it. We did not go demanding they do things another way the are not familiar with. Multi - tasking does NOT exist on Molokai and that is refreshing.
The people are friendly. Tourists are not. Most people are high maintenance [-] that cannot appreciate a different way of doing things and accepting it for what it is. My husband and I are going to go back to Molokai to go hiking and learn more and if we don't stay in the house we had booked before we will go back to Hotel Molokai and make it our basecamp.
Molokai is peace and paradise. Now I know why they want to save La'au Point. I am only a visitor and I want it saved too. The rest of the world doesn't deserve Molokai. Home of the Hula!
I will visit but I won't move there because I can see why your economy depends on it. If I do move there, I will become you and not make you become me.
Love from Vancouver Canada.
The red earth is incredible!
