This was my first luau and it was very entertaining. My husband and I took our 8, and 11 year old, and they loved it. There is a great amount offered at the buffet and your encouraged to eat as much as you like, its also included in the price. In Hawaii and on vacation this is a great deal... More

The shuttle to the luau was so much fun. We had a wonderful MC on the bus who entertained us along with giving us important tips regarding the luau. Try a little bit of everything on the buffet and eat until you're tired, not full.

We have been to several luaus on this island as well as others. This time we went as a group taking a bus from the hotel in Waikiki. Our "cousin" was a great tour guide and pistol of cultural knowledge sharing all along the way...don't expect a short trip during rush hour. Luau was great and the food wasn't as... More

Traditional Hawaiian luau food and hula dancers made for a wonderful evening. Included in the price is a bus ride to the luau spot which is on a beach at an industrial park but you would never know you weren't all alone on a deserted island with all the other people. Dinner and a show. It lasts several hours and... More

This was the first luau for both my wife and I, individually and as a couple. The hype led me to believe a wonderful experience was in store. It was not. Our escort, cousin April, was a little gruff initially and only mildly warmed up later. Not sure if it was a bad day or she's worked far too long,... More

Day started off great when our big tour guide Kale picked us up. Made the 1.5 hour drive go by very fast. Was greeted by hosts with shell lei's and with a great big aloha. Show was good. Ran enough time to keep us entertained and involved and Didn't go to long where we were bored. Food was pretty decent.... More

We had a great time from the corny bus driver to the very end. The food was good expecially the pork. The dessert was not Hawaiian because it was white or chocolate cake but it was very good. They give you drink coupons for alcoholic beverages or you can use them like we did on virgin strawberry or pina colodas.... More

My first and last luau. Went to this Luau this past February. We were told by the travel agent we would be entertained on the bus ride over to the luau and how wonderful it all was. Well, we entered the bus to meet our host Kii. She was friendly enough but the entertainment was lacking. After 2 hours getting... More

The performers were spectacular. Well mostly anyway. But the food was garbage. I'd rather eat Air Force chillimac for two weeks straight than eat this food again. I'd go for 30 or 40 bucks, but definitely not 80. I do not recommend it. Use your time and money on another activity.
