We've never been to a luau... so not sure what to compare it to. Everyone said we have to do it at least once while in Hawaii...so we did. The show was good, lovely location, the drinks were okay and the food was so-so. Actually, food could have been a lot better. The check in staff was actually a bit rude... we asked if they could take our picture and they said sure when the line is finished.... there was no line? Anyway, the dancers were all good, especially the fire show at the end.
