This is one of the top attractions on the island. My wife loved this place. A tour provided me with a quick history of pineapple growing in Hawaii. The stroll through the plantation garden is excellent for flower lovers. If you go to the maze, make sure you get your card stamped upon entry. We had tickets (bought at another... More

If you are like me and love pineapple, this is a must. A little on the expensive side, but the store has so many different options for you to try. If you are lucky you can also get some samples to try. We had the ice cream with pineapples and strawberry sauce. I found it delicious but my mother in... More

My family and I loved this but especially me. I have somewhat of an obsession with pineapple because of the show Psych so it was like a dream come true. We did the Pineapple Express (which was full of good information about pineapples and the plantation yet good for young children because it's a train ride), the maze (fun, but... More

The ice cream is awesome, and just walking the grounds is fun. The maze is not bad, but large and sweltering hot. The train ride is not worth it, I felt I wasted my money there. I would visit the grounds and the gift shop only on the way to the north shore, good stop

I was a reluctant guest, having lived on a pineapple farm and picked them. The pineapple ice cream was really nice, and very refreshing. They had a few things we could not get elsewhere, like chocolate covered pineapple. We did a private round island tour with Anela tours and he stopped there. The round island tour was brilliant and this... More

Tons of pineapples. Mostly a gift shop. The landscape is very pretty. Depends what you are looking for. Great soft serve pineapple ice cream. Very large building. We bought some spices and herbs from one of the vendors very tasty.

We wanted to go so we could tick it off the list, but our time would have been far better spent doing ANYTHING else!! Carole : (

The online description and pictures makes this attraction appear much cooler than it actually is. The train ride has a few interesting facts but takes you around a plantation that is no longer actually running. The maze seems cool at first but really is pretty boring (although they offer a hunt of things you are supposed to find throughout the... More

We had time only for the gift shop and a quick view of the farm from a bus, but we wanted to stay much, much longer. The gift shop had so many fun and interesting things. It had a café with various pineapple-themed dishes including VERY popular pineapple ice cream desserts. They had samples of different Kona coffees and samples... More

The plantation was decent, it does have an atmosphere of a theme park, they should do away with photo taking with a fake pineapple before your ride the train, it slows down the line a lot.
