This was my families first trip to Hawaii so going to a luau was something I wanted to include. I did a lot of research and everyone of them seamed to have reveiws ranging from amazing to dreadful. I finally decided on this on using the reccommondation from "Hawaii the Big Island revealed". They tell you to get there for 4:30pm and then you stand in a line for at least an hour before they begin to seat you. It is a pretty small area so we did not bother with the upgraded seating and we were able to see fine.
The pre dinner activities was kinda cool, where you could try learn some hula, get temporary tatooes, or try the fire dance.
Food was plentiful, we were the last table to be called up but they kept making sure all the selections were available. The food was not bad but not great either (had much better food on the Body Glove dinner cruise).
The show was interesting, and entertaining but nothing really out of the ordinary.
It was about what I had expected, I would say it was worth it since it seamed like almost a mandatory thing when going to Hawaii, (it would be like going to Paris and not going to the Eifel Tower). It is not something that I would do again if I go back to Hawaii.
