  • Okay... so a cool, old time plantation converted into shops, restaurant, and some touristy stuff. But it has been completely commercialized, so there really is minimal historical value. We are unsure ...  more »

  • I have eaten at Gaylord's on and off now for 12 years and I have always enjoyed the experience. This time was no different accept that it was more for business. The food and service was spot on, the server did a great job maintaining the table of 5 and we were able to conduct our business with ease. This was an important meeting and I felt Gaylord's was the best place to host this event, they did not disappoint. Fred and his team at Kilohana have worked hard over the last 10 years developing and maintaining this beautiful location, I think its a wonderful location to spend a few hours, have lunch, do a rum tasting and take a train ride, go to their luau, or host a business meeting.
  • This place is simply amazing! If I ever come back I will definitely come back here
  • Kid friendly w/ their train tour. Cute & welcoming environment. Love the food!
  • The train was great for the kids and they loved feeding the animals. The piglets were a highlight as were all the amazing fruit trees.
  • Neat little shops, Koloa rum is some of the best rum anywhere. Nice grounds.
