We decided to walk to the nearest Luau from our condo which was the Royal Resort.
They had an open bar which was nice.Very Friendly staff. If you wondered around the compound you could see the sunset .
It was on the hotel grounds, not too Hawaiian.
The food was very good, all you want.
The show was good for a summer camp performance, mostly Caucasians.
We've seen so many shows that we're spoiled though. It would be a good first timer's show.
Worth the $60 we paid for it.

Fire dancers and performance was awesome! The Kalua pork was incredible! The guests were mostly older and not very lively. But the entertainment and food was worth it!

This Luau was rated as one of the best and it did not disappoint us! The dancers were all wonderful, beautiful and graceful, and one in particular was quite funny. Even as concerned that my teen boys may not think much of a "dance show" as I was, they were beside themselves when they saw the amazing Samoan fire dancer at the end! And the food was fantastic! The MC was really wonderful and funny, an absolute gem for the show, and the band was, for lack of better words, also fantastic! Overall wonderful worth while experience.

The food is great (don't take poi unless you like wallpaper paste), the entertainment delightful. They have a new fire dancer who is world class and leaves breathless. All the dancers were wonderful to watch. Their check in could be modernized - still using paper lists with resulting waits - but the emcee was full of spirit and good humor. A lovely evening!!!

The seating was adequate with long tables arranged down a slight hill to provide good viewing from all areas. We were in the preferred seating in the front, but I think any seats would be acceptable. The presentation and commentary following dinner was well done and the food at the luau was hot and included a good variety of meats and side dishes. The pork was very tasty and we enjoyed the chicken and beef as well. I have been to a few other luaus over the years but it's hard to compare them as each is a bit different but all have been good experiences.
