Great food, great entertainment for a reasonable price. What more do you need? Danny Couch used to play here every night before he retired. What a voice; so sad that he went. Still, very unique and exciting date experience. Would recommend to anyone.

Food was ok, MC was really cheesy. I mean really. 70s lounge cheesy. The dancers were very good. This luau was MUCH cheaper than others; we're going to the Big Kahuna luau next week, I will compare the two when we're back.

It had been 10 years since we last attended this luau. The first time we really did not think highly of it...this time was different. It was very enjoyable and are very glad we took a family member from out of state here for her birthday. So, this is what we found and here are some tips for the luau.... More

The free drink was good! The activities were cute, but the food was horrible! Unable to watch the show due to being disappointed and sleepy from time adjustment.

This was my 2nd attendance at the luau. I'm not sure how it compares to the others on the island but the place was packed. I commend the Hale Koa for the services they provide to the men and women who defend our way of life! Keep the great work!

Seriously this place is a tourist trap the while Luau thing is. Kids were having fun but the food was very bad the apps are not apps they are shared. One Alice of pineapple each, 1 free drink then its $7.50 each. I will never do a Luau again. The show was good to above average but for the $$... More

The Best Luau Ever according to the kids. From the beginning to the end its well worth the trip and the money. Fun activities for kids and adults, great table service, nice stage, wonderful learning experience. I wish I could see it again before we leave but definitely recommend to all, especially those staying at the Hale Koa.

For the price and the convenience (if you're staying here), this luau was excellent: the reception, food, drinks, service, and entertainment were top notch. I'd definitely do it again!

Our second visit was even better than first. A must-do on Oahu. Fun pre-concert entertainment, relaxed with ample libations. Tree climber was great! Great table service and very good food. The actual Luau is very entertaining and the MC is fabulous and able to sing a wide range of popular songs from 70s to today. My daughter was entralled with... More

This was the 2nd time we've been to the luau and it was even better this time. The pre-luau activities and show are fun, interactive and for all ages. We all loved our dinner and the show was wonderful. There was music, dancing, history, culture, some funny things, some heart warming things. Yep, fun fun fun way to spend an... More
