My family and I are so disappointed of whole experiences and it was such a waste of money and time...I couldn't believe I see the reviews say it was so great. The food was not fresh any of it. The performance overall was cheesy except the fire dancing. I would have left in the middle of luau if I had... More

I accompanied my visiting family to their first Hawaiian luau. They chose Chief's Luau at Sea Life Park on Oahu, not only because they had the best price, but also because they came highly recommended. We were thoroughly entertained from the moment we passed through the gate. Taking part in crafts, games, hula. The food was the best luau fare... More

This was the best Luau at the Sea Life Park. We chose the Royal package. We received a mini tour of the aquarium and saw sharks in a tank and a live turtle up close. We entered the luau and were able to choose either a shell, nut or flower lei. The view of the ocean and mountains was beautiful.... More

We were welcomed with a Lei of our choice: shells, nuts or flowers... Our group purchased one of the Sit Down Dinner meals & we were quite close to the stage. The food was served promptly, hot & DELICIOUS!! I was a bit disappointed in the beverages. With our package, each person received 3 drink tickets. I am not a... More

My family and I (age ranges 28-70) went to Chief's luau last night. First of all, the view was spectacular! The Chief's commentary was very funny and entertaining without trying too hard or being dirty. The food was pretty good too. The bus driver told us ahead of time that the way the pork is cooked it is salty so,... More

This was my first trip to Hawaii and my first luau. I went with my granddaughter and we both had a fantastic time. The Chief's commentary really made the evening more interesting. I really enjoyed all the dances and how he made the audience a part of the show. Hope to be able to go to Hawaii again and will... More

Didn't get that from a stall wall but Tripadvisor, and it was 100% true! Chief Sielu is among one of the best showmen on Oahu. We paid for the premium service and were seated right in front of the stage. My wife participated in the hula lesson and they have an activity for everyone before the food is served. The... More
