I love this place. Very spiritual with pearls beads and outdoor garden.
Great place the pineapple ice cream is great the train ride is informative and they have a pineapple cutting demo every 30 min or so
Touristy place but kind of a must if you’re visiting. Make sure to try the dole whip!
They some pretty neat things to do and see here. The pineapple treats are so good.
Was fun, a low key adventure for the family.
Cool history overshadowed by tourists looking to eat pineapple ice cream and over spend at the gift shop(mall). Once outside the most interesting part of the self guided tour was the Hawaiian Trivia maze (Guinness book world records largest man sized maze) at a cost of 8.50 a person this was worth the stop over on our way to the north shore. Also enjoy the pineapple creme, just know it's pretty indulgent...
I always thought that the Dole Plantation had an admission fee, so I was surprised to find out it was free. We parked in the large lot and walked into the souvenir shop. Tip: don't go too crazy because many of the items you can find at the local grocery store for cheaper. Some items are exclusive to the plantation. We had to get a Dole Whip of course...a $7 soft serve though...ouch...we wanted to get another one, but it just costs too much for what you get. We enjoyed our soft serve outside and walked around the garden. You can put in some quarters to get some fish food and feed the koi in the pond. If you want to take the kids on the Dole train, there's an additional fee.
I am glad I got to visit this place. Definitely rent a car to get here because it's pretty much in the middle of the island. I would make a trip out here on the way to the North Shore. Takes about 45 min - 1 hr drive from Waikiki. If you are a tourist, I recommend getting the Oahu Go Card as this gets you free entry to all three attractions in here. If you plan to do the maze, allocate a bit of time for that because it will take you awhile to do the hunt inside. I also recommend trying the Pineapple Ice Cream. That was pretty good. Their Macadamia nuts are great as well, freshly made! The Pineapple Express Tour was interesting. It was basically a 2 mile ride (round trip) throughout their plantation and you get to see their fields where they grow crops. Overall, great place to drop by if you are here in Oahu.
A must see Tourist attraction in Hawaii!
