We were with a large group and had the Terrace Luau. Each cabana holds about 200 people so we had a lot of space for our function. We were greeted with a welcome hula show then escorted to our private cabana. Dinner was very good with good selections (toss salad, mac salad, lomi salmon, tofu poke salad, teri chicken, glazed...

First time to Hawaii. 14 days. My wife and my 10th Anniversary. We also took our 6 year old boy. Most things were planned before we went. My wife did see this advertised. We had an amazing time in Hawaii. My wife and I wanted a special night out for our anniversary. This was the spot. The food was amazing.... More

Went to show only - dinner prior to show at The Cheesecake Factory nearby. Great impersonators. Fabulous costumes. Traditional Hula Dancers, Fire Eater - great introduction to Hawaiian culture. Enjoyed the show immensely on our first night in Waikiki.

What a great night's entertainment. Chose the luau dinner first. Plenty of food. Show was amazing - Elvis, Celine Dion and Michael Jackson. Being an Elvis fan I thoroughly enjoyed him - even sounded like him; Michael Jackson was excellent - such a great likeness.

I went to the same type of show at the exact place in 1997. I was a teen and loved it then, but I was blown away with the show now! I've scene shows on Broadway and Vegas, so I was very impressed with the effects, the live band, the performers, and the head liners. The three headliners were Elvis... More

We went to this and expected so much more from the reviews. The Luau was really cheesy.......it was a bunch of tables crowded together on a fake grass mat. The food was pretty bad and they kept trying to push their mai-tais. The Rock-a hula show was ok....I've seen a lot better in Vegas.....Usually I tend to agree with the... More

Back when our 3 daughters were growing up, our family's favorite vacation was Waikiki. Naturally, we would always take them to one of the many Hawaiian shows or Luaus during our stay. The entertainment was always pretty good, but you've seen one,you've seen them all. Fast forward to this past July 4th holiday, I joined one of my daughters and... More

My husband surprised me with this show for our 3rd wedding anniversary. Being from Hawaii, I was a little skeptical about this show but we were absolutely blown away by this production. The musicians, dancers, and impersonators were on point and very entertaining. Loved every moment of it. I definitely recommend this show to everyone.

The show was more than I expected, the production of the show was awesome. My wife and I were amazed with the talent that the three singers and ENTIRE CREW HAD! As a local, it blew me away and would highly recommend this show to everyone. My wife and I, would also go to see this show again!

We had a dinner and show package and dinner was just ok. The show could have been a lot better if they would sort the sound out. Each performer was drowned out by the band noise and we struggled to hear clarity with their singing which was a shame.
