The dancers and musicians were generally good. The lead dancers, male and female, were excellent. The food was fair to good, but plentiful. The food and drinks were included in the price - as much as desired (so a few folks had a LOT to drink, but did not create problems). There is a $7/person up charge for prime seating... More

Too bad they show little about the preparation of the pork. However, great show and good food. Friendly staff and nice spots directly at the beach.

Heard it was the best group of entertainers on the island and they were right. Very informative, very tastefully performed, flame thrower awesome, food was wonderful, watched sunset over the ocean behind the stage, and an open bar was the icing on the cake. Great experience!

Took a friend here who had never been to Hawaii, much less a luau. This event was very well organized, the food was great, and the entertainment was highly professional. During the entertainment I never observed a mistake made by any of the dancers. If you wish to attend a luau while on the island, you definitely can't go wrong... More

This was a great night weather superb, food great. Only problem the plastic chairs need cushions or something. As we were on an angle the chairs became very uncomfortable after awhile. The Audience was a great mixture with many elderly people and after speaking to a few they agreed about the seating discomfort. All in all a great night the... More

This was probably one of the best Luaus that I have been to on all the islands. The staff were very pleasant and there was an opportunity for preshow interactive activities with the performers from native tattoos to Hawaiian dance routines. Guests are greeted with leis, photos taken, and escorted to the beverage area, and then seated waterfront. Beautiful views... More

We have been to a couple of other luaus and this was one of the better ones! Beautiful setting and right at sunset! The food was good, but we were one of the last tables to go through the buffet and we were scraping the bottom of bowls to get the side dishes! The staff were all very nice. The... More

We took our 8 year old to this luau, and she enjoyed it even more than when we went 4 years ago. They give a nice bit of culture, and the food isn't bad. I had read about the terrible food, but i thought it was just fine. I would recommend it.

Just had a wonderful time all the way around. Great food, great music, and great dancers. The emcee, a gorgeous Hawaiian woman had the most incredible voice. She just truly took you on a great adventure with a. Pice that was as smooth as silk. I would definitely recommend this luau. It was a blast!
