  • We enjoyed our time there. Lots to see and do !!!Had a tram to take you around. Saw plants and fruits of Hawaii !! 
  • 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 t...  more »

  • We stopped by here on the way out of the I'ao Valley State Park. Looked great from the road with hanging halyconia's & palms. The nursery section had some great looking orchids, very unique. However, when we got to the entrance area, the staff (if that's what they were) were extremely unfriendly. Barely acknowledged us and when I asked the name of a palm out front, she answered, but rather impatiently. My biggest gripe is the dog that they had walking around loose inside that seemingly wagged its tail actually BIT my 3 year old as he tried to pet it. NO WARNING from anyone that the dog was not to be touched, no signs, and just a yell as he was bit of "Don't pet the dog". Needless to say we didn't bother paying the $5. If they want visitors, they need an overall of attitude and demeanor!
  • I loved all the types of palms that were in this garden, it was really neat to walk through but would suggest something more friendly for handicap folks
  • This place is closed.
  • You're kidding right? There weren't that many flowers to look at. Yes there were some interesting plants to look at but they're no different than other nurseries. For $5/person, I'd expected a lot more. Now, for $5 bucks, you can get something that is unique to this garden-- MOSQUITO SWARM!!! The whole place is infested with mosquitos. I knew something was up when the store was full of incense smell, and selling a bunch of one-time-use pack of Deet for $1 each. Even when you're fully covered with Deet, there were mosquitos everywhere. I've never been swarmed like that in Hawaii until now. Not worth the $5 and bug bites. Now, seriously, if you want amazing gardens, for free, and without the crazy mosquito swarm-- go to Kauai. Save yourself the drive and the money.
