We decided since the Iao Park was closed due to heavy storm damage (VERY disappointing) that we would visit this site. The huge store was just more things to buy. the grounds were beautiful. The Mill House restaurant was beautiful - unfortunately we weren't there for a meal. We did, however decide to take the tram. What a waste of... More

We'd set out to go to Iao Valley, but (because I didn't consult TripAdvisor first) we arrived to find the park had closed due to a serious landslide. A cop directed us to the Maui Tropical Plantation close by, which is a large garden/park area including a restaurant and lots of little shops. The Plantation itself doesn't charge for entry....

Beautiful, well kept plantation in Maui. Make sure to do the tram ride. You need to sign up for it in advance, and it is $20. Your guide takes you around the grounds and shows you all of the plants and fruits that are grown here. You can also download the app and the app will tell you the names... More

Their advertising offers a tram ride of the grounds for a nominal fee. Their "nominal fee" is $20 per person. What a rip off - you can spend the entire day at the aquarium for $27. Nice park like setting but that's about it. Otherwise it's a big glorified gift shop with a restaurant. Wish I didn't bother with the... More

We spent an afternoon touring the Plantation with our Grandchildren ages 4 and 6. You ride through the grounds and the tour guide explains all of the plants and flowers along the way. You stop where you are treated to a demo about selecting, opening up a coconut. Learned not to drink the Coconut Water directly from the Coconut...you else... More

We had a great time at this plantation! We really enjoyed the tram tour. The girl who led the tour was friendly and knowledgeable. It was fun to learn about the items grown at the plantation, then go to dinner at their restaurant (The Mill House) and know that many of the ingredients that were included in our meals were...
