I've been going to Maui all my life, and have always heard of this place. Never went until just recently. To me, it's an over-priced tourist attraction. If you aren't from Hawaii and don't see all this kind of plants and whatnot on a nearly daily basis, it might be worth your time and money. What I did like here,... More

This plantation's gift shop was one of the most reasonably priced gift shops that I have been in. The tram tour guide was a delightful local with an abundance of knowledge of the crops and an excellent sense of humor. The quaint shops, gardens, artwork, display, and wandering fowl made for an unexpectedly delightful outing which I thoroughly enjoyed. And,... More

We arrived just before hurricane Iselle hit the island. We called ahead and was told it was open. It turned out to be a perfect weather/timing to visit for the 3:15 pm tour with Ion. There was no rain during the tour. It rained shortly after tour ended and was not too hot/cold. Because of the hurricane, our family and... More

My wife and I really enjoyed this place especially the tram tour. Seeing all the different plants in one place and marked with names was nice. Was also like the relaxed atmosphere of the vendors that made stuff there really while you watched. We bought some coconut leave stuff here. Nice place worth the stop.

My boyfriend and I booked the 10:00 am Saturday tram tour wanting to avoid the crowds. To our surprise we were the only ones on the tour and Ion our driver/guide was awesome! He didn't skimp on the tour at all and was very informative, engaging and entertaining!

I have been here before and was looking forward to it again after 10 years, until checkout. Nasty nasty woman at the counter and the others acted as if the customers were invisible. If you are looking for the aloha spirit, don't visit this place!

The family enjoyed this trip and our tour guide was great, informative and our kids really enjoyed the interaction with her including watching a coconut being split open and eating the fruit inside. But, as our tour guide kept telling us there were plans to make the plantation better, fill in the large dirt fields, bring in livestock and it... More

This is another quick stop on the way either to or from Iao Valley. I didn't do the tram ride, but walked the self guided plant/flower tour. The grounds are lovely and they situate the shops so that you tend to run into one as you are viewing the flowers. Not a lot was in bloom in July, but it... More

Stopped on our way back from Iao Valley. This place is very pretty. I recommend this stop for sure. They have great gifts should you need to buy for others. This is also where the zip line company is. There seemed to have been a restaurant onsite, smelled good. The soap company onsite is amazing! This place makes their own... More

It was great to see how everything grows and what the plants look like. The coconut demonstration was fun to watch and informative. We spent quite a bit of time going around to the shops. Not everyone in our group wanted to come but those that did go really enjoyed it.
