We had no idea what to expect at this luau given the mixed reviews. Overall we loved it! The drinks from the open bar were very good. The food was excellent. We are pretty confident that the pork was the same pork we watched being pulled out of the imu pit. The program/dancing itself was excellent. We liked the fact that the hostess narrated each dance to explain what we were seeing. It was a great introduction to what a luau is. We would like to find one next time that isn't as narrated.
The setting can't be beat. We had a perfect view of the sunset.
Also, we didn't get the VIP tickets. We got there at about 4:15 so we were pretty close to the front of the line. We ended up getting seats on the second row, right behind the VIP row. Saved money and still had a great view of the stage.
