Beautiful setting. Very entertaining throughout the meal and show. The musicians, dancers, and gracious emcee were all genuine and engaged. Fire dance was particularly good. We have been to several luaus on other islands and this was our favorite.

Overpriced and show only lasted 45 minutes, not an hour as listed. Mostly talking, not dancing. Intro was overkill.

Authentic family-run luau. Very nice. Gratuity 15% was included in our bill. They do ask for extra gratuity if you would choose. Beautiful opportunity for photographs and sunsets.

We paid $270 for 2 of us and it wasn’t worth $20. Horrible.
