We came here for my nephews wedding & what a wedding it was. There were dancers, fire throwers, music, great food, and a very happy bride and groom. The perfect location for a wedding or renewal of vows

If you were to stay in Kona in Big Island Sheraton Resort is a good one. However remember most of the attractions are near Hilo side and you will have to drive almost 2 -3 hrs to reach the attractions. If I were to do it again I would stay in Hilo and then drive to all the attractions. Sheraton... More

Our room overlooked the Luau stage so we got to see the show and hear the music every time we were back in our room... which was at least a few times per week.

The whole night was lovely. The sunset behind the stage as you eat as well as the entrainment from the mc and the dancers was wonderful. Totally worth the price.

This was my second time attending the Royal Kona Resort luau. My family and I had a wonderful time and enjoyed the activities going on prior to the show. The performers were wonderful. As you enter the luau area, the staff members take your picture and make it available for purchase ($20). I love this!
