The luau at the Kona Village has been voted the best for years, though there are some people mentioning the luau at the new Sheraton being very good too. (I haven't seen it yet.) Should you prefer something lower priced you have two options, Royal Kona Resort and King Kamehameha Beach Hotel. (I think both are very touristy.)

Island Breze Production moved its show to the Fairmont Orchid, effective March 25. It's called the "Gathering of the Kings" and supposedly it is a vast improvement from their previous show. They already had one unannounced show for some invited hospitality professionals and business people and someone I know who was there was raving about it.

We attended the Royal Kona Resort and had a blast. I don't think it's considered very highly but we were well fed, free flowing drinks made for lots of merry and the entertainment was great...

Went to the Island Breeze Luau last summer, and it was really kinda silly. Especially at one point where they said they were going to play an old Hawaiian classic, and then played "My Girl" I'm sure it was suppose to be funny( I hope) but it was quite cheesy!!! The food wasn't as bad as the entertainment, though! And the drinks were pretty good, especially after having several.
