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

My wife and I had a great time at this luau. The food was great and the show was excellent! It was great having our hotel room right there since the mai thais were strong. Can't wait to go back.

We booked this after spending a lot of time researching it on TripAdvisor. The Hale Koa Resort seems very nice and the scenery was great. We might actually think about staying there on our next visit. After getting to the Luau, they give you a complimentary drink, take your picture (that they sell you later for $15) and you can...

Attended the Luau last night and I consider it a must see for Waikiki. The whole event was exciting and professionally done from the complimentary Mai Tai when you walk in to the greet the cast on your way out. We have attended other luaus in the past, but this one is hands down the best thus far !! The... More

Having been at the Old Lahaina Luau and loving it, this Luau at the Hale Koa was also excellent but very different. They had activities for everyone to participate like making lei bracelets, palm headbands, the guy climbing the palm tree, the coconut demonstration, etc. The show itself was very artistic and fun as it involved audience members as well....

The Luau was a good experience. It was the only Luau we did and that we had done. Its very well organized. Although I didn't care for much of the food the show was pretty good. We got our tickets through the Hale Koa in advance.

The Hale Koa luau; which is located at Fort Derussy in Waikiki, is one of several luau's available on Oahu. Although the food is good, and entertainment not too bad, there are better luau's on the island; which are available.

This was a lot of fun. We've been twice now on two separate trips to the island - we were not disappointed either time. It was fun, friendly and entertaining. The food was good. We had a group of seven the first time and fourteen the second. Everyone was pleased - adults and children. The interaction was fun for the... More

This was my first luau but it met all my expectations.. It was also the best priced luau in Wakiki. The regular price is $49.99 but if you are AD E1-E5, it is only $39.99.
