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

I first visited this hotel in 1976 when I was in the Navy stationed at Pearl Harbor. It always was the destination of my wife and I along with my shipmates and their spouses/girlfriends/etc. 38 years later it has even gotten better! The Luau is first class and very authentic to the history of the event. It wasn't oversold or... More

We had a wonderful time at the luau. The show was excellent, but the food was average (what I expect when serving hundreds at once). The performers were good, but the guy who was doing the commentary wasn't so great...he was a one hit wonder, and still thinks that makes him relevant. What was different here than at others was...

The food was good, however a little rushed.The show was excellent. Credit should go to the luau dance performers. Sure would have been nice to sit at an eight man table vs ten-very little room to move.

For a little over $50 a person, the experience was excellent. Lots of activities for children and adults, 1 fee drink included and great food! The host was s little cheesy- but the dancers were great! They even had a 15 year old world champion fire dancer! At the end there was a tribute to the armed forces which caused... More
