Outstanding Luau! Given the price, I think it was a terrific value! Food was very good, especially the pig. Lines very efficient. View of ocean could not be better. Music, dancing, and emcee were all very enjoyable, not at all cheesy. Thanks for the family memories!!

A little pricey, get the premier seating thru expedia. Outstanding live music, musicians, dancers. Open bar, Mai Tai's, decent food. Skip the beef. The Lomi Lomi Salmon, fruit, and Ono were my favorites. The Fire Dancer was the highlight of the evening.

As our 1st Luau experience this was amazing. We found best ticket prices directly through Royal Kona's website. Then we paid for them when we arrived. We saw the unearthing of the Imu. Took advantage of the open bar until 7pm. Loved the fire show part the best. Fully enjoyed our celebration. Even our 40 year old was recognized for... More

We are probably in a rut but we always stay here! The outdoor bar setting and sunsets can't be beat. Staff is very nice. Rooms and decks are comfy. We can walk to anywhere we want to go, especially our favorite restaurant.

We stayed at the hotel and went to the luau. It included an open bar along with the buffet, which was very good. The entertainment was very good also. If you are planning on attending this one, make your reservation on-line through the hotel website, as you get a discounted price of $70.

Very friendly folks, clean room. The shower was a bit dated, but excellent hot water and water pressure! Beautiful grounds. Reasonably priced.

The food was plentiful and outstanding! The imu explanation and the uncovering of the pig was something we've never seen before. The luau wasn't rushed feeling. They gave plenty of time to eat, seconds if you wished. The show was really good as well. A lot of different type dances highlighting all that Hawaii is about.

The entertainment was great and the food was very good. There should be two bars for the guests to make use of not just one. I had thought we would actually eat the pig that had been roasting that day but no such luck. Overall this was a very good experience and would go back again.

This is 4th Luau, the others have been at different Islands. The Royal Kona Resort Luau, was a great show, when I say classy they didn't have all those cheesy jokes and stuff, now with that said those can be fun but some are excessive. The time frame was great not to long of a show, location beautiful with the... More
