Nice, green gardens.

Clean and well maintained. We ate lunch at one of the covered picnic tables which were very clean. Lots of space for different groups.

This is a wonderful stop on your way into Iao Valley. Unfortunately, the owners decided to close it and put it up for sale. I hope someone purchases it and reopens this great Maui attraction.

We visited the Tropical Gardens in 2011. Wonderful, loved them. Since then we tried in 2014 and 2015 to go again but they were closed, with a For Sale sign. Hope they are open again and we can visit this September. Had orchids sent home which were packed great and have bloomed many times.

This must have been beautiful at some time but it is run down and disappointing if you are looking for a pleasant walk.

The grounds here are huge and well landscaped and maintained. Admission was free, but if you wanted to ride the tram and get the guided tour, there was a fee of $16.50. It lasted about 50 minutes and was interesting and informative. Our guide did a great job explaining about the different plants and what they're used for---like how hula... More

The tropical gardens has a vast display of plants found in Hawaii. The train ride around the fields has a presentation about all the vegetation you are driving through.

This is a fairly small orperation.. it doesn't trully represent a plantation.. Gift shop a little priicey ( you will get better $ at Longs for most of the items) However, it does hold enough charm to stop in

This was a great garden to see. Unfortunately they are closed now and up for sale so its worth noting. They are located on the road to Ioa monument. Hopefully someone buys them and re opens them as they are quite good.
