THIS IS NOT FOR ALL PAST MILITARY! we called ahead. My husband was honorably discharged from the navy. Has proper ID and a VA card. We were only allowed to attend if he had a disability ranking of 100%!

The little family and our +1 had the privilege of attending this luau; the pre show was nice, and popular -- it fills fast. The admission line begins forming early, so consider your arrival time. Once they collected/verified/validated our tickets, we were presented with shell...More

The food was good, although it was not buffet style like I was expecting. They brought the plates out to each person, and you could not get seconds. Entertainment was wonderful

We’ve been to this luau about 7 years ago, nothing changed since the last time we attended. Luau is held at military hotel property. Cheapest luau we could find. Basically a budget luau if you don’t want to spend a whole lot of money. We...More

We purchased these tickets because they were cheaper and centrally located. Having been to several others (PCC, paradise Cove) the food here is NOT buffet style although servings are massive. Taste is good. The show was good but what bothered me the most was how...More

The Hale Koa works hard to always show their guests a nice time. The luau is nice but under a roof on a stage. Takes a little away from that beachside arena. Food is not served buffet but it is a nice evenings meal and...More

We agree with many reviews in that the show was entertaining and they kept the audience involved. However, the welcome drinks definitely seemed to be watered down and the food was incredibly salty—to the point we couldn’t eat some of it. Seemed to be quite...More
