A good night with good entertainment. Not too expensive and the food tasted great. Held in the resort grounds near the pool

Not totally authentic in this day-and-age but it's hard to find anywhere on the Islands. Good food and always fun. Price is slightly touristy-but the overall value is there!

Truly enjoyed the show, the dancers were very enthusiastic and seemed to truly enjoy performing the different dances, The fire dance was terrific! The food wasn't on par with the performance and could be improved upon, but the setting was beautiful.

Was shocked $70 for very little... Open bar from 5-7pm what they don't tell you is if you get there at 5pm it may take you 30mins to get in after lining up then you line up at the bar so really it's open bar just over am hour! Food was good but no where near $70 worth as show... More

Royal Kona Resort Luau was everything I was expecting. The food was all very good and the show was very entertaining. The sunset behind the show was very beautiful. I would return to this luau again on my next trip to the big island.

We were in a group of 16 and were all excited to experience Luau. We were able to witness the hauling of the roasted pig from the Imu. The beverages were good but the food, including the roasted pig, tasted bland. The beef entry was also not tender enough. The show was worth the trip though and the long wait.... More

The food was pretty darned good, and the show was amazing. I was prepared to be annoyed by corniness, but the musicians and dancers were just incredible, especially the men, who were just unbelievable athletes!

Great entertainment including a fire thrower! Best food ever at a luau. Well organized, great live music, actual ceremony to uncover the cooked pork- what more could you want?

Royal Kona Resort has one of the best Luau's on the island. You can pick from regular or premium seats. The main difference is you get closer to the stage and you are first to the food. I've been to a few Luau's and I think this Luau offer the best value. They provide their guest with a large selection... More
