We went for the drink and show package which was perfect for us. We had our photo taken with Lady Gaga on our way in and then had a free cocktail or beer before being shown our seats. The show was a good production with great singing, dancing and impersonators. We had a young Elvis, an excellent Michael Jackson and... More

Aloha and thank you for your review! We are delighted that you and you family had such an enjoyable experience and YES, our "child free" promotion is a great value for families. Our very talented Johnny Fortuno, who pays tribute to Elvis is definitely a crowd favorite and in case you didn't know, he was actually discovered by the late,... More

Elvis was good, Lady Gaga better, Michael Jackson fabulous. It is what it is... Talented singers pretending to be anyone else. Glad I did it once.

My wife suggested this as we wanted to attend some entertainment with a twist. This was it. We purchased the luau and show package. There are others. The luau was intimate and started off fine. The entertainers were good and the staff attentive until the meal was served, then the staff all sort of disappeared. As I was to later... More

Needed to do something to get up off sun lounger so choose this show. Great fun and along with the impersonators there was a good amount of traditional Hawaiian culture. Overall a little cheesy but super fun and well worth going to

My husband saw the show in 2013 with some friends and has not stopped talking about the show back home. So this trip he said I must go watch the show, and we did. And really no regret. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Seeing for the 2nd time his comment was, This show has improved since the last in 2013. Well... More

I was a reluctant attendee to the show and was truly blown away. We had a stage side VIP table that included a pre show drink and dinner. The 3 course dinner was excellent - lobster for entree, salmon AND steak for mains and a chocolate lava cake with macadamia ice cream for dessert. We saw Elvis, Lady Gaga and... More

My husband and I took my mom on her dream trip to Oahu. We booked the VIP cocktails, appetizers, fantastic dinner and entertaining show! The staff went above and beyond to give all of us, especially Mom, a once in a lifetime first class evening! We met the stars before showtime and they were so kind. During the show "Elvis"... More

We did the VIP dinner option. With this option we got an ok buffet about 1 1/2 hour before the show with preferred seating. I am not sure this is worth it. The food was ok...nothing special. The entertainment was cheesy...but I expected that given the reviews. You are seated at large tables...with other guests next to you. Some of... More
