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

I have been to other luaus and this is by far the best. For around $50 you get the best dining value of anywhere around. The luau occurs only on Thursday and Monday. You are given a shell lei (it use to be flowers), a great rum punch, and an opportunity to pose for $15 pictures with the entertainers. The... More

We were in Honolulu recently for a cruise ship stop and wanted to do a luau close to the port so we would not chance missing our 10:30 PM on board for sail away. We decided to go with a group to the Hale Koa Luau and were very pleased with our decision. The food was very good considering they... More

We enjoyed dining and chatting with the others at our table. The entertainment was very good. The band and the dancers made it a great show. The food was also plentiful and tasty. I did feel a bit rushed to eat my dinner though.

From the preliminary activities and demonstrations on the grounds, to the wonderful food and Polynesian cultural show, the action never stopped during this thrilling evening. The ending tribute to those serving/having served and fallen heros was very moving and particularly meaningful for this military crowd. Thanks go to the many performers who put on this great cultural experience.

The hotel itself is modest but located in Waikiki, it is an Armed Forces Recreation Center which means that only active duty service members and their families, retired military and veterans can use it. The Luau is on the grounds of the hotel so same restrictions to attending. That said, if you meet the requirements this is a great luau,... More
