This is a great luau. We got there 15 minutes before check in time and got thru the quick and efficient line in no time. We were greeted with drinks and shown to our table by Spencer, who happened to be our waiter for the night also. He was great, joked about his non Hawaiian name, took pics of us,... More

Very impressive and seemingly pretty authentic luau. Food was really good and varied, and they worked hard to take care of our needs throughout the evening. Try to bring a few $ to tip the waiters. They seemed to be a little short changed.

The show was super and the food was probably the best luau food we have had. The price was discounted and parking was ok

I loved the orchid leis that they give to you as you enter. We were also given a choice between a mai tai and a fruit punch to drink as we lined up to get the leis and our assigned seats. We sat in the Pineapple section (the right side of the centre building). The other section was the orchid... More

This was an incredible event - we enjoyed every minute of it. The food and wait staff were incredible. Our server was stopping by every few minutes to see if anyone needed anything & always had a big smile. The food was incredible - very flavorful and plenty of it. The show has top notch dancers - the best we... More

We went almost 20 years ago and returned as a family. Terrific servers with genuine aloha. GREAT quality of show, authentic Hawaiian, great quality of dancing and storytelling about the history of hula. Beautiful setting on ocean and great seating arrangements so no one is too far from stage. Very well-organized overall, staff uniformly friendly. Local artisans' merchandise was fairly... More

This Luau provides a great way to experience Hawaiian food and culture. The dancing was amazing. Also I highly recommend getting a traditional seat if you can, your closer to the stage and it was a fun way to experience the evening.

Went based on all the great reviews. Think the food was better at the drums one at the Hyatt. Also the wife was onstage over there and there was no audience participation during the show at this one.

We loved the whole night, time sped by, gorgeous leis, great food, drinks and the service was so friendly (dano was our waiter and we honestly couldn't fault him). The only cautionary note I would make is that we booked to sit on the ground at the front and for the two tall guys at our table the lack of... More

Great food and all you wanted to drink both , alcohol and non-alcohol , a lot of crafters , some nice picture back ground maybe alittle pricey but it's a photo that is a once in a lifetime , the more you by the cheaper they get per pic .
