The Lulu show was nice and the atmosphere and grounds were nice for not being right on the beach. Everyone was greeted with a shell lei at the entrance and a free drink (bar available if you wanted more drinks for purchase). There was interactive activities and local music for kids and adults to partake in before the lulu started.... More

Amazing luau. Very entertaining. One of the most amazing things for me, the fact that it is on an DoD installation and the crowds are mostly servicemen and women. The order is immaculate. The lines flow so fast. Really worth while luau if you can get tickets.

Our family was disappointed in the Luau for a number of reasons--We reserved the Luau one week in advance while we were staying at the Hale Koa. Our table (#57) looked like it had a nice view of the stage on the reservation schematic--but when we got there,the stage was obscured by a retaining column plus people were standing in... More

I've been to this luau three times now and it never gets old. I'd have to say, out of all of the luaus I've been to; this is my favorite. The staff if great, the grounds are beautiful and the entertainment is fantastic. Semper Fi.

This was a great Luau!! I bought tickets in advance and highly recommend you do the same (Must be military eligible or have a military sponsor similar to the Hale Koa). The tickets come available online about a month in advance. Go to the Hale Koa site - events and then pay atten- the first table I got was not... More

This luau is pretty reasonably priced, and they always put on a good show (we have seen it 3 times now). I'm sure that there are other really good luaus but you can't beat the atmosphere and these guys and girls at the show really appreciate their audience. Great food, too. Only downside was that we took our 2 year... More

Its a good Luau for the price. Total tourist fun spot. Entertaining for all ages. Have seen it 3 or 4 times over the years. Dancers are good. Could do without the MC. Food is ok.

We stayed at the Hale Koa for almost a week. The luau was only average. First of all they have about an hour in which they have activities like tattoos etc. there is no place to sit and activities are only adequate at best. Food is okay. We did not want pork; the rest of the table was done eating... More

Waited approx. 15 min....proceeded to free Mai Tai or Fruit punch. Stations set up to create Plumeria bracelets, palm tree head bands, tattoos, ukulele lessons, hula demonstrations. We then watched the pig being pulled from the pit, and learned about the cooking process. After that, we then proceeded to be seated, eat puupuu's and be served dinner. Only drawback was... More

This luau was a fun experience. We enjoyed all the activities in the garden before the luau started. I liked being able to sample all of the different types of foods they provided. Some were good and others not so much but that's the case whenever you try something new. We didn't have the greatest seats but we were able... More
