Trail system is closed and all self guided canoe rentals are unavailable. Yet they fail to tell customers until you reach the property. Instead they proposed a walk around their grounds or a guided paddle to the fern grotto. Neither are worth it...

I’ve been to Secret Falls via Hawaiian Village 3 times over a 15 year period. It’s an amazing life experience. Let me clear up a few things I have seen people review. First, it’s not a Disney ride. It’s nature. It’s a canoe ride and...More

This Hawaiian village was so poorly kept up that I complained about how poorly they cleaned it up, how dirty the bathrooms were, how bad the signage was, etc. The good part is that they did refund our money.

It was our last day and we stopped at this village for a self guided tour. It was an easy stroll to the exhibits on gravel paths. I learned some interesting facts and enjoyed the plant identification. They also had several resident cats and peacocks....More

No clue on that one, We stopped by the day before and asked about it. They told us to be there before 10:00 so they didn't run out of canoes. We paid $34/36 pp .... can't remember exactly.
