We got ready and headed down to where the bus was going to pick us up. It came on time but then a woman got off to tell us that it had been cancelled due to rain over on the west coast. It wasn't raining in Waikiki. We tried to book a dinner cruise to do something else exciting that... More

The Paradise Cove Luau was the highlight of our trip. The bus ride there was entertaining, the staff were very friendly and accommodating, the activities and show was amazing & the food was surprisingly really good! On the way there, the guide on the bus said that on a busy night they have up to 16 buses full with people... More

This was our first time in Hawaii, so of course, a luau was in order. Cousin Katey was a great host! We had a great time, the food was good, well, except for the poi, lol. The show was good, the weather was good, and the activities kept us busy until dinner. I forgot to bring ibuprofen with me, and... More

Nice place - basically we got what we expected. A little over priced compared to the Hilton Luau. The drive over from Waikiki was horrible. Parking was good. Drinks were weak.

If you have the time definitely take this tour. Ask for cousin Mo we had the best tour transfer entertaining ever. He had the whole bus laughing for the trip both ways. We offered money to stay on the bus and just drive around town. The food and show met expectations don't expect Ala Carte. The dancers were excellent. All... More

I've been here 2 times (2004 & 2014) and it's exactly the same. It's touristy, but you come here for that reason. if you wanted something different i would suggest the Polynesian cultural center. The prices are fair...Cheapest ($88 w/pick up $75 drive yourself) up to $122 ( thats where they serve you ). The performer are great and you... More

This place is great from the moment you walk in the gate, we had our photo taken & were given a shell lei. Then you are free to wander around & participate in Hawaiian games & stuff. There is a fantastic view over looking the ocean. The meal is a buffet dinner but I must say that the pulled pork... More

For the price you pay for this, you are much better off going to the Polynesian cultural center for a half day tour. Everything at paradise cove is inferior to what you would have had at the cultural center. The price at the the cultural center is more expensive. But having attended both, the cultural center wins in every single... More

We attended this luau with several adults and several small children. Pre-dinner activities lasted too long. We were there for several hours before the meal, which was especially hard on the children. The meal was okay, but there was a person in our group wiith Celiacs disease who didn't get to eat very much food. The setting is beautiful. The... More
