It was a fun time with a pig roast, live entertainment and open bar. The scenery was awesome, by the water with waves crashing and a sunset in the background. Sounds pretty good doesn't it?

The two biggest aspects of a luau are the food and the performances. I felt the food was lacking, I had better traditional Hawaiian food on my trip but the performances were outstanding. The 4 female and 3 male dancers were absolutely amazing. Each time they came out I was so excited and I could have watched them dance and... More

This was my second time at the Royal Kona Luau. It was still a great evening the second time around. Free cocktails (just be sure to ask for a Rum topper), good BBQ and amazing entertainment.

I am somewhat new to trip advisor and typed this long review about this attraction but it appears I wasn't able to submit. If you don't understand what luau is you may not appreciate them as I do. I lived in Hawaii for several years and have been to many luaus. Dancers have been learning the sacred dances since they... More

The show was OK, food was average or below average. Since this was our first Luau, I am not sure if they are usually better, The first hour was dull, and the price for the food and beverages not a good deal. The show was OK, the same people did the dancing for each culture, the most entertaining was fire... More

While in Kona we went to the Royal Kona Resort Luau. Watching them unearth the pig was fun. The open Mai Tai bar and other refreshments were wonderful. The entertainers were awesome. Meeting and visiting with people from other parts of the U.S. and Countries was fun as well. Thank you,

The pig was good but nothing else was tasty. The service was friendly but the MC wasn't our style. The performers did a great job.
