From the moment we arrived things were well organized and smooth going. The location is perfect for a luau. Beautiful views of the ocean. The cast are all lovely and welcoming. If you book online you receive a nice insulated bag! The shell lei is a nice touch too! The mai tai drink is great. We purchased the tiki cup... More

Show was somewhat entertaining. Food wasn't great and the selection wasn't the best. No need for seconds. We drove to the luau and there was a difference on how we were treated compared to the quest who came by tour bus. Kids were excited about receiving a lei, only to be disappointed by a cheap shell lei. Drinks came in... More

Besides the food being delicious, and the service being great, the performance was unforgettable! From hula to Tahitian dance to the famous fire dance, we were impressed! I also loved that the company got its audience onstage to perform and to learn these classic cultural dances. That's unlike any luau I've been to. A must see!

I have never been to a Luau before and this was amazing! They have music playing and you go to see them uncover the Kahlua Pig from in the ground and once your eating and it gets dark out then the real Luau starts. I love that they get the audience involved on the stage as well. I would recommend... More

As a frequent traveler to Hawaii, we always love ending the trip with a luau. We have done Paradise Cove, Chiefs, etc. So we know what the basic luau entails. We decided to try a different one - Germaine's on our recent trip. We really had a hard time deciding but thought we would go to one we didn't know.... More

We had an amazing time at Germaine's Luau. There were 13 in our party and we booked the Pikake Luau. We had a great table right in front of the stage. The food was pretty good. I have to say the Kalua Pig was the best!!! The entertainment was fantastic. All of the performers appeared to be authentic. They really... More

Set on the beach so wear shoes that slip of easily , we walked around bare foot as it was too hard walking in shoes, we were greeted with a shell lei and a photographer takes a souvenir photo.

Spend the extra $10 per person and go to the luau at Paradise Cove. There's more to keep you entertained before the show. Germaine's is a smaller venue, on the water, but in a more industrial area. They have a very small gift shop, good drink prices and decent food. Don't expect fantastic food at any luau; they're cooking for... More

I guess you should do a luau when visiting Hawaii .... But we suggest trying another one. The tour guy was great ..(Jeffery ) but the food was nothing to write home about and the seating (picnic tables ) got uncomfortable after the first hour. The show was good (not great... But entertaining ).
