I was not too impressed with the Hale Koa Luau. The food and drink options rather over-looked diabetic folks. As you come in the gate you are offered a fruit drink, or a Mia Ti. The horderves were served family style on the tables but without labels. I found out after I had some on my plate that one of... More

We heard about a number of places to appreciate the island culture but the Hale Koa managed to deliver it in one evening with a fantastic dinner leaving plenty of time to see more of Hawaii during the remainder of our already too short stay. The food was a nice mix to include local flavors. You can't beat the price... More

We attended this Luau at the Hale Koa last week and had a great time. The food was great -- pork cooked the traditional way, and plenty of sides served family style. The show was amazing. Great dancers and attractions. Don't miss the pre-Luau demonstrations. Well worth the time. I've heard that this is the best Luau in the area... More

We really enjoyed our evening at the Hale Koa Luau. The experience overall was quite fun, as there are drinks and activities prior to the dinner and the show was fun and exciting. The provided dinner was fairly decent. It is a sit-down dinner where guests are given a plate containing hale pork, teriyaki beef, fish, and chicken, along with... More

We did the will-call seating by reserving on-line. This was a mistake as there was only one ticket window and a long line to pick up the tickets. It's the same line for those purchasing tickets. You need a military ID, but non-military were in line trying to purchase tickets and arguing with the only ticket agent. It took nearly... More

I've stayed at the Hale Koa twice within a year and attended the Luau both times and it didn't disappoint.

The Luau was an experience of a life time from Start to Finish it was 1st Class... I felt like I was with caring family .. The entertainment was Great and some cast members pose for pictures.

The food wasn't impressive. Not horrible but just "okay." What was amazing and spectacular was the entertainment! The show that was put on by the entertainers was top-notch. So fantastic that I would happily pay again for my family of four to watch this luau again just for the show alone. My 8 year old and my 2 1/2 year... More

The food was not great...the pork was really good, but the rest of the food was edible, but not good. The dancing was EXCELLENT and the singing was so-so...I have no idea why they made the lounge singer the 'star' of the show.

We had a great time overall. The show was great and very entertaining. The staff (aside from waitstaff) was friendly and our kids really enjoyed the activities before the show. They had lei making, tattoos, ukulele lessons and a few other things. We did run into a couple of food issues which was disappointing after making an extra call to... More
