We bought the buffet package, it was set up open air, beautiful setting. A couple of the dancers were there getting people up to learn the hula, lots of fun. Dancers David and Ashley were terrific. Staff at every point were courteous and friendly. No bad seats in the theatre, we had great seats front row. Band were excellent as... More

An overall wonderful time. We bought the VIP tickets for supper and show, and it included appetizers. We arrived had had drinks appetizers. Then we had very good seating and a lovely salad with cold lobster. The rest of the meal with steak and salmon was good. The show was Vegas material. The actors and actresses where amazing and very... More

Wife and I had a thoroughly great time. Food was excellent. Staff friendly and concerned. Transportation to and from was very good. Michael Jackson was the best of the performers. We went on a Tuesday night and we were favorably impressed with all the arrangements. The only issue was that the web site did not have a link for the... More

The only reason we went was because hurricane Ana was passing by and we were in the middle of 36 hours of non-stop rain. This seemed like a great way to spend the evening, have dinner and stay dry. We were very impressed. It was a great evening. Dinner was pretty good. Don’t miss the Salmon – it looks just... More

If you want a reasonably priced show with some flair, some Hawaii, some pop music (Elvis, Michael Jacson, Lady Gaga) this is great entertainment. Go for online booking and save 10% or eat ant PF Changs and show the receipt. Go for the drink only and you get a great price of around $50. The show has both the Hawaiian... More

I loved this show. It is a great addition to … and evolution of … the Waikiki entertainment offerings. Go to a “real” Polynesian Cultural Center Luau first to learn the history and see the “real” thing. But when you’re looking for more fun entertainment with a Hawaiian flare, go to this show. It is a great mix of an... More

We had the buffet meal with a free Mai tai drink (watered down) & food was tasty, plenty of it, & included fresh delicious pineapple. Nice meal with hula dancers & singer & interactive opportunity for audience members to learn hula. Staff were friendly & accommodating. Then came the 1 1/2 hour show with Elvis, Lady Gaga, & Michael Jackson... More

Do no expect a Vegas Show. But the show is good. I really liked the Polynesian dancers. Great group of dancers full of energy. The imitators of the stars were very good also. All the group did a wonderful effort to entertain us.

Elvis was impressive. Lady Gaga and Polynesian were very good. Michael Jackson was like a bad lip sync mime!
