This night is one full of food, dancing and music, and of course MAI TAI......The dancing was beautiful, and the music was excellent. The storyline went a bit quick and jumped around making it sometimes difficult to follow. The food was good and the "taking the pig out of the ground" was good to watch, and had beautiful smells, however... More

I have been here with my wife during our honeymoon. It was Friday, it was not raining and there was not so many people. There was a lot of food, all very good especially the buried pork under leaves and sand (Kalua): it was delicious. We had a lot of fun with the live music, the dancers and the guy... More

The food was good for a buffet style. The dancers and other entertainers kept us happy and well entertained! I'd recommend it.

We booked this one because the best reviewed ones were meshing with our schedule. It was a decent luau, but sitting outdoors on plastic chairs at narrow tables really detracted from the experience. The food felt quite buffet-grade, and I seriously doubt the pig they pulled out was trayed that quickly. The food quality was acceptable, but not extraordinary. The... More

I was told that rain is called a "blessing" by Japanese on Hawaii. Well, we got "blessed" quite a bit right before dinner was served! Thankfully, the blessing stopped in time for the food and the show, with the evening sunset being a perfect backdrop for the dancing and music. I figured that while we were on the Islands, we...

This was a great Luau, the food was delicious the entertaining was perfect and the bar was plentiful.. We did have a little rain on our day, but the staff handed out poncho's and the party kept going. The night ended with a perfect view of the sunset.

Great variety of food at the buffet. Desserts are pretty bland. Free mai tais! You get to watch the uncover the pig (Pu'u) cooked in pit. It is delish.

This Luau is fun. The emcee will often have you doing a face palm or bemoaning the cheeziness, but they do deliver. The show takes you on an entertaining trip through the history of the Polynesian islands. The dancing is great. The coconut workshop is top shelf. The luau dance-off competition can get ugly for the participants who volunteer or... More
