Very tasty and a good variety of offerings. Wherever your seated you have a good view of the stage which is nice because the show is really nice.

I was not prepared for several things that I should of been informed of when I purchased the tickets 1) that there were different packages available 2) then the up selling on the bus for another $25 each you could get the "embasarda" ticket and get a guide and preferred seating for the shows and also, a guarantee to see...

The food is good. The entertainment was good. We had early seating which allowed us time to wander around before the show. My favorite foods were the chocolate cake and the taro bread. And I normally eat zero carbs!!! Today I can tell I had sugar overload but would do it again.:)

This was a good Luau, nice location but would like a smaller setting. The meal was good and the entertainment was excellent, but the evening show at the center was the highlight of the trip. The explanation of Polynesian Culture was marvelous and the performers were top notch. We really felt we learned a great deal about an often over... More

If its the only Luau you ever see, go for it---if you plan to see others, keep the Mormons waiting ---but seriously needs to improve

This place is set up to accommodate many people in a very efficient manner. Lots of friendly young people to greet you, present you with a lei, take your picture (for sale later) and send your table to the buffet in a quick and orderly fashion. I counted 8 buffet lines! The pork and Island fish I had were delicious.... More

The food was good and I would guess that there were 500 people there and they are so organized that everyone was got through the buffet in no time. The show was also very nice

This is class act from start to finish. Other reviews will give particulars, but these young people do a great job night after night. Always helpful and friendly. Imagine three seatings a night of over 600 people each, six days a week. Run with precision, but not feeling rushed at all. The meal was good and the entertainment was first... More

We attended the Luau at the PCC the day we spent touring the attraction. The show was very entertaining and would have been enjoyed by all. The Polynesian dancers were superb, and the host particularly affable. A hostess seated each guest beginning at 5:30PM. Fresh flower leis were given to all attending--a lovely gesture. It is advised to be at... More
