Affordable and Fun

Luaus on the island can be pricey. Alii Luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center is both affordable and fun. Guests are greeted with leis and promptly seated. The food was good and there is plenty of variety in the buffet to satisfy most palates. The show was excellent and included a celebration of... read more

Amazing show! The lady who MC's the show is just wonderful, you can tell just how proud she is to be sharing her culture! Mahalo for sharing with us! The entertainment is just amazing, from the musicians, hula dancers and fire dancers. The food was great.

It is pretty pricey, but you get to see a very decent dance show, combined with Polynesian-style buffet food selections. Also included is an admission to the Ha show afterwards.

We drove ourselves there and purchased regular luau and show tickets (us $105 each). Pros: good food, large buffet with a big variety of different foods. Buffet is very well organised so lines move quickly and there is entertainment while you wait. Service was friendly and fast. Felt like you were getting value for money because you got dinner and...

Cultural program was good but didn't like the food as it didn't have variety. They welcomed us with garland and flowers and then showed us the dinner table which needed a share with other people. Nice if you like meeting different people.

We were there with a group of 15, and were impressed with how organized and well done the event was. The food was great. Our only complaint is that the host/emcee just talks too much. Would have liked more music, especially while we were eating, rather than so much blathering. Another issue for some might be the lack of beer... More
