We booked this one instead of others, mainly due to the proximity of the luau to our hotel. We had heard some great reviews about the luau at the PCC but this one meant we didn’t have to travel an hour either way. We paid...More

Attended on Thursday 10th May 18, performers were great, entrance was easy too. Food was good, no issues other than would have been nice is a little hotter, but it’s a buffet so guess it goes with saying that’s normal. Doesn’t have the pig being...More

High quality performances and buffet food was better than expected. The downside is the rooftop location which does get very windy.

The entertainment was great! Don’t go for the food and drinks or you might be slightly let down. But the entertainment was fabulous! Get there by 4:40 or else you’ll be waiting in a long line.

I am expected so much more from Hilton. Food was just okay. Dancers were good. Really no service. If you wanted a drink you had to go get it yourself. Sodas 5 dollars. I have seen 3 other luaus in my life and this was...More

The luau is not held on the rooftop on Fridays. Instead, there is something held on the lawn adjacent to the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon. Not sure about the view from there.

The tickets that you are referring to could be the one that are given as an incentive to view the Hilton Grand Vacation. This would be your choice and could be what you have heard about.
