The gardens are beautiful. The peacocks are gorgeous. If you can go to the luau it has the best food. The Kalua pork is to die for and the homemade Lava Gauva salad dressing is amazing.
The botanical gardens are somewhat small, but still beautiful and well-kept. The fern grotto tour was informational and fun - we even learned to hula!
