Expensive, but a good show, food was OK.

Expensive, but fun as long as you expect the touristy show. Only go for the upgraded seating if you plan to drink a few cocktails. Otherwise, pay the regular price and get in line... read more

We went to this Luau because it was part of our package and were disappointed. We have been to other luaus, the best being on Maui. If you pay for this luau, it is not inexpensive, $119 per adult. For $26 extra they offer better seating and appetizers. They don't tell you that you need to pay the extra money... More

This was very professional and focused on Hawaii and the Big Island, unlike other Luau's that try to do the entire South Pacific. Great food, Great dancers, more guys than most shows, great fire dancers! Very kid friendly. Great for families!

I can't believe I just paid $475 for 2 adults and 2 kids. The food wasn't bad, but they needed someone to check for flies is the food. The audio SuCKed! Could hardly hear them talking in the back. The mics would cut out and squeal. This place was packed and at over $100 a person they could afford to... More

You sort of have to do this once! Expensive and tourist-y, but fun. Being honest, the food is quite poor. Best to try a bit of everything. Mostly dry and overcooked, my favourite was the cured meat. Our server kept us well supplied with cocktails, which were good. The band is very good. The show is fun.

Expensive, but fun as long as you expect the touristy show. Only go for the upgraded seating if you plan to drink a few cocktails. Otherwise, pay the regular price and get in line for admission early. You pay for cocktails and don't get table service, but, since it's a buffet, that's not really a significant upgrade. The buffet food... More

I went to the Legends of the Pacific Luau expecting a campy, touristy experience ... and (unfortunately) that's what I got. My family wanted to go to a luau, so we decided to take in the Legends of the Pacific Luau while staying at the Hilton Waikoloa Resort. Tickets for the luau are $115 for general admission or $141 for... More

Other reviewers have correctly noted that these are some of the best and most daring fire dancers you'll see anywhere. And the traditional roast pork, Parker Ranch short ribs, and huli huli chicken are the standouts on the buffet. But I'd like to give a hand to the gifted musicians and singers who did all the pre-show music and played... More

First time in Hawaii, so we had to witness a Luau. Food was good, show was tacky (as expected). Glad I did it. Would I do it again: probably not...

Food wasn't to great. Audience members picked to participate in performance. The dancing and history was great but not worth the cost of the whole experience.
