Really enjoyed the luau. Loved the pit roasted pig. Delicious. The rest of the meal was average. Lots to choose from. A buffet of salads, veges, fresh pineapple and a variety of meats, etc. They showed us how the pig was cooked in the ground which was really interesting. After the meal the dancers entertained us with various dances of... More

This was a well done production - though they do vary the show throughout the week. All you can drink mai tais with all you can eat on a Hawaiian island - hard to go wrong here. They explain how the pig is cooked pretty well, dig up the pig for you, and then prep it while you listen to... More

The luau was great everyone that we encounter was super sweet and welcoming. I took my daughter here to celebrate her 5th birthday and she absolutely loved it. I informed them that it was her birthday when we arrive and they sung happy birthday to her during the show to see her face light up once she heard her name... More

Ok...we're in Hawaii...the trip wouldn't be complete without a luau, right? The problem is we have heard horror stories of bad luau, with cheesy shows and terrible food. This was neither!! The food, especially the imu cooked pork, was delicious!! My teenage daughter, who complains about everything we feed her, ate half the pig on her own!! And the entertainment... More

Such a friendly staff, nice clean rooms. For those interested, right on the Ironman course. Breakfast buffet is delicious served on the open air patio with views of the ocean. Perfect spot to watch the sunset.

When you arrive you get a shell necklace and have access to open bar. The sunset is gorgeous so you can just enjoy the colors on the sea. Then you see the ritual of the Imu (Hawaiian oven) then the dances and stories are interesting. Good night !
