“Great seats”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We watched the Luau from our balcony. Luau food is not very good. The show was good and entertaining and the night was perfect.

“The setting is beautiful with the crashing waves in front of you”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

The Royal Kona Resort Luau was a pleasant experience. Although it was quite crowded, everything was handled well. There is a one hour free bar when you can have 2 drinks at a time to take to your table. The setting is beautiful with the crashing waves in front of you. The dancing and music were exceptional. The only down side was the food was, as expected at a buffet, tired and coldish with steaks that I couldn't even chew. The pork and chicken were fine and made up for the steaks. They ran out of salmon before we got to it, but then again the other fish was great. It is a big production so show up early, and the price is a little steep. It's something to do once.

“Island dancing”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Large crowd organised well, in spite of a queue which started half hour prior to opening. Premium seating is closer to front and everybody seated at long tables, with about 12 each side.
Lots of food for everyone. Starts at 5:00 to 5:30pm and all over by 7:40pm

“Nice show & good food”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

The Royal Kona Luau has a beautiful oceanfront garden setting with great sunset views. The food is good and plentiful with all the usual luau dishes such as poi, haupia (coconut pudding), rice, fish, chicken (be sure to have the onecooked w/spinach), beef and kalua pork. Skip the tough beef and focus on the pork! You get to watch them dig up the whole roast pig before dining. The show was of good quality, but seemed to have a dearth of performers...maybe due to the Merrie Monarch Festival on the other side of the island that week. Recommend for families, honeymooners and anyone who has never been to a luau.
