My review is mainly about the food. So I’ll start off by saying the show was good, and the performers did a great job. It’s wasn’t the traditional performances you’d normally see at a luau, this was more of a storytelling. But I enjoyed it....More

We really enjoyed the luau. The mai tais were good and the kalua pork tasted great. The show was well done. They do a great job of telling the story

+ Very big place + Big and exiting shows + Decent buffet food and service - A bit too commercial - Some far tables might not see the shows very well

We attended just the show and it was well worth it. The cast did a wonderful job telling the old Hawaiian folk tale in full custom withtraditional dancing including fire throwing dances. Highly recommend.

This was my first Luau that was recommended by a family member and it was absolutely phenomenal. This was definitely one of the top highlights of our trip. When you walk in they give you a Lei and there are multiple vendors inside selling souvenirs....More

At first I was not sure about an indoor luau but in reality it made it more impressive with the ability to use lights and projectors that really told an amazing story. I felt like I was at quality show and not just a backyard...More

We did not find the entertainment to be really loud and we sat in the front row next to the stage. There were lots of young children present who appeared to enjoy the show. I believe the show was over by 9pm.
