The Luau we attended was the ViP version and it was not overly exciting. The standard version, we were told was not very attractive either.

It was so neat to watch them unearth the pig and be able to take pictures with it! The food was good. There wasn't much of a selection for dessert, but we were plenty full for that anyway. The meat was very tender and moist! I highly recommend staying for the Ha: Breath of Life show after!

The entertainment and the backdrop to the stage set the scene. The buffet was yum. I especially loved the sweet potato salad. The pork was to die for. Lots to choose from.

Food was good and they were able to accommodate over 500 people very quickly through the buffet line. Of course the staff was very friendly too.

I loved it all. The Horizon show at night is fantastic You can learn so much about the culture of the south pacific and the people. How they came from other Island's to form what is now known as Hawaii

Food selection was very limited, one of each - pork, beef, chicken, fish. Salad bar was nice, dessert was also limited, but taste much better than the food. The show was boring, some hula dancing, celebrated birthdays, anniversary and honored military personnel (nice touch). Too many people packed into a small place (10 person per table).

Food was fine, but not special. There is a brief show, but most of the best show acts are saved for the separately priced show in the Polynesian Cultural Center's main theater.

I live about 5 minutes away from PCC. My mom came to visit and MWR had the Alii Luau package on their monthly specials list for August. The luau was ok. The food was ok. It wasn't so much a luau as much as a buffet with some dancing up front. I will probably not do the luau again. I'd... More

We had a fantastic time at the Cultural center and show itself, but the luau was a little disappointing. I was expecting a lavish spread abounding in fruits and veggies (I mostly eat vegetarian) and, of course, meats. The salad was typical American with iceberg lettuce. The fruit was minimal. The menu said I could ask for vegetarian chili, which... More

I was super excited to go to a luau like you see in movies! But it was just so so. The food was definitely not worth it. You have to imagine how many people they have to feed so the food quality shows. The show it self was ok but we went in August and it's HOT and they pack... More
