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

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.

Very tasty and fresh buffet dinner followed by fun show. All very organised and very professional both at dinner and show and complimentary cocktail/drink. The night I went the impersonators at the show were impersonating Celine Dion, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson. MJ was the best until Elvis put a fresh orchid lay around my neck. Great hula dancers who... More

The show itself only lasted for 1 hr and 20min which I thought was too short. Having said that, the performers themselves seemed more like an (unintentional) comedy act than a musical act so maybe the duration was long enough. The Hawaiian fire dancer was probably the best part.

We got a last minute reservation the day we arrived and decided the buffet wouldn't be any more expensive than other nice nearby restaurants and wouldn't have to rush to make it to the show afterward. Senior discount was 10% if you ask when reserving. They actually started serving a little earlier than they told us on the phone, and... More
