What a great experience. Me and my two teenagers loved it. The food was great with plenty to eat. The atmosphere was awesome. The entertainers worked hard and looked like they were having a great time. Well organized and efficient. The sunset was incredible. They even got the crowd involved and on stage. A really great time.

The paradise cove luau is a must do in Oahu. First there are activities. Things such as spear throwing and canoe races. Them there is entertainment. Watch how the Polynesians do things like fishing. Even watch someone climb a tree. The food is great. The meat, pasta salads, and the deserts. Then comes the show. Fire dancing, hula and much... More

Wonderful Luau that has great entertainment and food. Get there early (opens at 5) to enjoy the Hawaiian games such as ‘O’o ihe (Spear throwing) and ‘Ulu maika (Rolling stone disks)/ Everything is geared for all ages. Follow the Hawaiian Conch for the unearthing of the pig with explanation of the Imu process. Buffet offered many great food selections from... More

AVOID PARADISE COVE! They are unfriendly, unhelpful, and just plain stuck up snobs who do not deserve any money from locals or tourists!!! They are trying to just make as much money as possible... nit pick you for it non-stop... they are greedy. Go to the PCC or the one at Sea Life Park!

If you have children, this is the luau for you. Get there early as you only have a short time to do the range of pre-luau activities. There is headband weaving, bracelet making, spear throwing, Hawaiian bowling, polynesian tattoos and canoe rides. You have about a half hour to complete these activities before all the other stuff starts. Then there... More

IF you've never attended one before, this (may?) be a decent luau to attend. The good: beautiful grounds, location and sunset. The food was typical but edible. Unfortunately, this doesn't even seem like a genuine Luau, which should be full of the real music, dances and storytelling about the Hawaiian culture and history. No, this one is a vintage 1950's...

Paradise cove definitely is that! From the moment we got on the bus for transportation to the moment we arrived back at the hotel , we had an amazing time! Randal was entertaining all the way through, He kept us all engaged throughout the bus trip and on the way home. He even serenade us with "Just Hang Loose" !... More
