Staff were lovely and accomodating, we booked the buffet dinner and concert package. Plenty of all you can eat Hawaiian food, entertainment while eating, a real party atmosphere. The show was great especially the Michael Jackson performer and plenty of time afterwards for a photo with the Stars. I would highly recommend this tour.

Went to the show expecting great execution of the performance. The cost is 65 dollars,so one would think this will be a great show, NOT!!! The dancers are great, the Michael Jackson performance is great. After that it pretty much tanks. Elvis performance is ok at best,Lady Gaga was terrible. In my opinion, take your money and spend it elsewhere.

Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We are glad that you felt our dancers and Michael Jackson Tribute Artist were great. It is unfortunate that the performances by our Lady Gaga and Elvis Tribute Artists did not meet your expectations as we often receive great reviews from our guests regarding our first-rate production, great songs, and vibrant performances.

Music was too loud and drowned out the words of the songs. Michael Jackson was the best of the three, especially his dancing. Elvis just so so and Lady Gaga was awful. Tried to be too sexy. There was one drink included with our tickets to the cocktail show. It was just okay - too much syrup in the Lava... More

We checked all the reviews and decided to book tickets for the dinner show (lower level). Although we found the meal to be excellent the seating could have been better. We were escorted to a front row table on the right hand side of the stage and seated with another couple who could not speak English. I am sure they... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the talent of the performers. They had high energy throughout and really connected with the audience. Lots of variety and never a dull moment. From the dancers to the amazing dance moves of Michael and Gaga and the heart throb Johnny Fortuno as Elvis, I'm glad I decided to take in this show.

We caught the Saturday night show at Rock-A-Hula, Legends in Concert in the Royal Hawaiian Center. You can do a dinner show or just a cocktail show. The dinner show participants get the better seats at tables on the main floor. Most of the cocktail crowd are relegated to the theater seats, but it is a beautiful theater and all... More

I will start by saying, I am spoiled with being well traveled and seeing shows around the world... Living on Oahu, sometimes our shows tend to be a bit focused more on guest they will never see again. This was not the case with Rock of Hula! My expectations were so far exceeded with not only the show, but the... More

With out a doubt this is the best show in Honolulu. I have been to Vegas and this ranks right up there. My cousin Tim and I have seen the show 5 times. The people that put on the show are as professional as they come, the food is top notch, every thing is as good as it gets. If... More

We attended the Feb 17, 1915 performance and the young lady who portrays Lady Gaga is mesmerizing! She is an excellent singer, great piano player, has gorgeous long legs and a very cute butt. In addition, she has an enthusiastic attitude and a very gracious and charming personality. We were not Lady Gaga fans before this show but we will... More
