Under no circumstances patronize this rip-off of at least seven different Pacific Island cultures. The grounds are lovely, in a Disneyland kind of way, the luau food is worse than elementary school cafeteria food (the dinner beverage was actually blue Kool-Aid).
This facility is owned and operated by the Mormon Church. While there is no proselytizing, it is clear that these cultures are represented as the Mormons choose to see them. While the demonstrators have some skills, the shows themselves are amateurish, trite, and slick. In fact, the cultures are "portrayed" by local Brigham Young college students, and a great point is made of how the center provides these students with part-time jobs.
The worst part is that, once you agree to take that one-hour bus ride from Honolulu, you are stuck, and can't leave even if you want to, until the bus departs.
If you are truly interested in the great diversity of cultures coming together on these islands, read a good book rather than line the pockets of the Church with their exorbitant fees.
