nothing bad to say about their food and hospitality. dont miss the part where they show how they roast a pig. try to come early so you will have a good spot by the front and watch the show and have an entertainment right before your eyes as you enjoy a sumptuous meal. its a buffet so eat all you...

This was the highlight of the full day tour of the Island. Got a taste of the the local cuisine in a setting to be remembered. Very pleased with the meal. The locals are doing a great job of making tourists feel really welcome

It was a great all-around experience at the Ali'i Luau--viewing of the imu (Hawaiian underground oven), interactive singing and dancing, and all you can eat pork, chicken, fish, rice, poi, desserts, etc.

The buffet was mediocre, especially the roasted pig! The entertainment was amateurish and the waiters were hawking drinks, photos, etc. There was very little cultural experience. Basically it was a Buffet dinner not a luau.

The luau was exciting and the food was outstanding. The show for the luau was great. Would do this again.

The food at the Polynesian Cultural Center was refreshing especially after the "Marvelous Sightseeing". It's so much to see and do. It was well worth the money. So, take a trip to Hawaii and visit The Polynesian Cultural Center. You won't be disappointed. It's an all day event so get ready to walk, take a boat ride, visit other Polynesian... More
