5 star for the dancing - subtracted 1 star because of the food.
Jul 2021
Celebrated our daughter's 15th birthday at this Luau and they sang happy birthday and mentioned our daughter, by name. It was beautiful with historic representation of Hawaii and all the cultures that contributed to it. The dancers, musicians, emcee, hostesses, serving staff, were all amazing. However, I had to take a star off of this rating because of the food. This would have been a 5 star experience if the food was better. It was edible but just not outstanding.

A Great Luau Experience on the Big Island
Jun 2021
Our family of four (with teens) thoroughly enjoyed the Island Breeze Luau during our recent trip to Hawaii. For us, it was the perfect luau because it wasn't huge and didn't approach what I would consider a cattle call. They had separate tables as well for the different family groups which was a plus. We found the grounds to be very nice as well with a particularly pretty view of the Kailua-Kona coastline. The food was very good too. We enjoyed everything we ate. Last, but not least, we thought the show was really well done. It's just the right length, well produced, and provides a nice history of Hawaii and the Pacific region as a whole. For the money we paid, we thought the Island Breeze Luau was well worth it and a really fun experience (plus really well organized). Our teens enjoyed it as well!

The Luau was incredibly emotional. It was powerful. The dancers were incredible and the host was amazing! We loved the food options. They prioritized social distancing. Loved this experience!

Money grab luau
Jul 2021
Nothing but a money grab. If you have never been before they you will probably like it but for someone that has been many times before, its not worth the money until they go back to normal. All the pre show activity are missing. The menu and drinks are stripped down. Mai-Tai's were so bad we poured them out, Only 1 beer and 2 soft drink sections for the kids. was not impressed by the new table layout. I know they use the excuse that's its covid but its not. there were no covid restrictions going on inside the show, no spacing, no mask but instead they too out all the fun from the pre show so people cant gather around, but they all gather around to take a picture by the water under the trellis at the same time and the buffet line, what a mess. wait till they go back to normal or lower their price. the performers they were all excellent and the actual show was very good. Before this last show i would of given them 5 stars but not anymore. Cant wait for them to get back to normal.

Nice experience
May 2021
The performers were excellent and the location is beautiful. The weather held up as well, which was a plus. It was interesting to see the adjustments due to COVID restrictions, such as separate tables for each party, but I was glad that things like the little hula lesson were able to be done.
I only took a point off because of the food. The food itself was good, but as a vegan I felt it was a bit limited. On the website a menu had been listed (maybe older?), which had more vegan options on it. At the time of the reservation you can also add dietary restrictions/choices, which however did not really come up at any point. There was a fair amount of side dishes for me to eat, so I didn't go hungry, but I feel there is room for improvement.

Well done show, good food
May 2021
On the specific date we went it rained, so that's a lost star that's in no way their fault! If we had wanted to leave and not stay in the rain they would have given us a refund or moved the tickets to a different date.

The show as very educational and the dancing was great! Our one year old was in a trance! Such awesome culture across the Pacific islands. The food was really good and big portions/as much as you want since it's a buffet. Before you leave check out the Hawaiian/Polynesian exhibit inside the hotel.

Great show without the extras....
May 2021
Overall, I thought the singer and dancers were exceptional! We had quite a bit of rain which I believe was handled with grace and dignity. The food was phenomenal! My only concerns were, the pricing jumped up just prior to booking our reservation. I didn’t mind, I had great expectations. All the other reviews I had read, raved about the Royal Court arriving by boat, which would have made it feel a bit more authentic. They also claimed that they were greeted with leis and pictures, which we were not. So, in the end, I was wondering why we were charged a higher price, yet received less.

I reserved the upgraded package. I found out by googling that they canceled all Tuesday shows. I had to contact them and ask about our reservations. They offered to switch us to Tuesday. Ok. Fine. Well. We show up and find out they didn’t bother to give us the upgraded package we reserved. We were literally the very last table. The show is ok. The food is nothing special. The new layout is chaos. You don’t even know what food you’re in line for. The lines intersect. A mess. Don’t recommend.

Wonderful food and Hawaiian experience!
Apr 2021 • Family
We attended this luau on our 3rd day in Hawaii. It’s a great way to start your vacation and set the mood for the week. The food was delicious, poke with taro, smoked shredded pork, various salads and side dishes, mai tais for the adults, juices for the kids.The entertainment was spectacular, highlighting the different dances and cultures of the multiple Polynesian islands with a fire dance at the end. The singing, dancing and live band were just wonderful. The setting at sunset on the Kailua bay was just beautiful. I’d highly recommend this activity for families to start you adventures in Hawaii!
