Best place to visit out of my whole trip. I was so excited to learn about the different cultures and just a peek into how it is in the villages.

Spend All Day
Jun 2021 • Family
We visited the cultural center to look around at the islands, ride a canoe, visit a luau, and watch Ha: Breath of Life. We missed several of the demonstrations and little shows b/c we hadn’t prepared a schedule ahead of time- definitely do that if you want to see everything. We enjoyed what we did see! Everyone was warm and welcoming and mostly funny!! We didn’t love the food at the luau, but the entertainment was wonderful. Ha was AMAZING. We enjoyed a Dole Whip while waiting for Ha to begin. It was delicious, as always. We didn’t understand a word they were saying in Ha, but we didn’t need to. It’s beautiful. Our daughter bought a ukulele here and we found the prices to be very reasonable for a quality instrument.

Unforgettable Experience
Jun 2021 • Couples
We loved all the presentations at each village! Everyone is so welcoming, nice and so talented. We were so impressed by the beautiful layout of each village, and all of the interactive activities. But more than anything it’s the people who work here who make it such an amazing place. We truly hope to return with our kids someday.

Just reopened
After being closed for Covid, the Luau is back. We were very excited to try the traditional foods and watch the hula dancing and other entertainment. The show was really good. Our MC for the evening was a wonderful storyteller and just a fun lady. The dancers and musicians were lovely. The fresh flower leis were beautiful and fragrant, and our welcome drink (virgin pina colada smoothie served in a pineapple) was good. The food is served buffet style after guests have sanitized their hands and slipped gloves on. There is a salad/hot food line, a beverage table, dessert tables, and two carving stations. One for the pig and one for fish. This is where I just couldn’t give the experience 5 stars. The food is just not very good. The salad/fresh fruit bar is great and the pig is good. The taro bread was interesting. Everything else was pretty poor quality and/or overcooked. I know it’s hard to prepare food for lots of people at once, but we’ve had much better food at buffets in the past. While we enjoyed the experience, we wouldn’t visit the luau again.

Overall Great Experience!!
Jun 2021
Our trip to PCC was a great experience overall even though we were not able to attend the entire day. KAP was very entertaining and the luau and HA show were excellent. Only downside is that the canoe parade that is normally done in the afternoons were no longer being performed due to Covid. The staff did whatever they could to make everyone comfortable. All in all, it was an excellent experience and highly recommend to anyone visiting Oahu.

Lots of history
May 2021 • Family
This is a more relaxed watching shows kinda place. We seemed to catch the last few mins of every show we walked up on. I guess our timing was just off. If you are into sitting for these type of shows and your kids are too... this would be your spot. However, missed timing kinda changed how we saw they place..It was very clean, the people were very nice just not for us.

The performances were well worth the day spent, and the crew were very helpful and friendly (walking us over or giving recommendations). The shuttle was convenient.

So good! We did the super ambassador package and had a private tour guide, Sia.

There is way more to do than can be done in 5 hours. She guided us to the various villages and had great seating reserved at each of the shows.

Highly recommended PCC. And, if you can swing it, the Super Ambassador package.

Tale of 2 Halves
Jun 2021 • Family
The first half of our day was spent exploring the 6 villages at the PCC. Besides a few moments each village is about the same with performers mostly just doing similar songs and dancing.

The second half of our day was great. The luau was a great dinner. And Ha: Breath of Life was the highlight of our day. Great show and worth the stay to the end of the night.
