The price was a very good price for a luau - I've been to several and probably wouldn't have gone this time except that is was my gf birthday and she really wanted to go. I booked our luau on online for $65 pp plus tax ~ we arrived and waited in a very long line that took approximately 30... More

This Luau was recommended to us...over all a good experience. The host of the evening was very 'tired' and scripted. We felt he could have done it in his sleep. The dancers were lovely. The food was average.

They had great ocean front rooms with a huge balcony to enjoy the view. It was in a strategic location and within walking distance to restaurants, bars, shopping and the pier. The buffet breakfast was good although the servers were slightly on the slow side.

Royal Kona luau, as luau's go in Kona Town, is probably the best for the location and the price. Plentiful, typical food, beautiful location on the ocean, nice grounds/landscaping. You can get a discount from any of the timeshare places along the main Drive if you are willing to give up about 2 hours of your time. Entertaining show, not... More

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.
