All reviews kalua pig rice the polynesian cultural center ambassador package buffet line dinner show super ambassador food was great hawaiian food entertainment dance poi pcc pit performance island activities
Very well coordinated and the hosts were so friendly and helpful. With the number of people in attendance, I figured there wouldn’t be enough food. I was completely mistaken. Plenty of it and all very good.
The food was just ok. The show was good. In order to get your money's worth you need to be there early to do the Polynesian village tour. We only ate supper at Luau and then the show after. The after show was fantastic!
Disappointed. The kids that performed were nice but overall I feel it was a cheap set up. The roasted pig was burned and tasted like smoke. The buffet food pitiful. Desserts even worse. Cheap, cheap, cheap!! Get rid of that bread pudding. I did purchase...the pics but it's another rip off:49$ for 3 pics, one is large and two smaller w one small plastic frame. Do not recommend it. Ohhh, forgot to mention the fake flower arrangement at the entrance, unvelivable!! Yes, fake flowers in Hawaii 😒. Service was very good, girl bringing the drinks and picking up the plates was super nice as well as the servers at the pig station.More
We did the Ambassador Tour---better than the Super-Ambassador because you get more authentic Hawaiian food. And $20 less.
From the start, we were treated very well and enjoyed wonderful music and history throughout. It's an all day celebration of joy. Very well done throughout.
The...villages were fun and engaging. We had a blast. Disneyland for adults.
After scrumptious food, a full day, and delightful luau music and dance, it was time for the "Breath of Ha" show and I was ready to go home. But we didn't. So glad I stayed. Excellent theater and well worth staying to further top off a glorious day.
Shopping. Lots available but not enough time to do it all.
My wife and friend both bought Ukeleles. My son bought a henna tattoo that looked pretty cool.
It rained at the first village performance and we were given complementary rain panchos. Very nice touch.
Lots of food and shopping outside the park that I would have enjoyed if I had time or any appetite after the tour, luau and show.
We rented an electric scooter $45 prox for the day to make the walking easier for a couple of our older family members who shared it. Plenty available that day. But prolly best to call ahead to reserve. I did.
Mostly a full house at all the events. And for good reason. A truly quality act. Enjoy!More
This dinner and show was included in our admission price. Because of the name, we expected it to be a luau but it was simply a nice buffet and a very entertaining musical show. We were each given a lei as we entered the “luau”...and seated at a group table with people we didn’t know, but it was a pleasant experience.More
We elected to purchase a package for a guided tour through the entire cultural center this experience was simply the icing on the cake for us. Great seats, great service, and food that was an Immersion of Hawaiian food and culture. The roasted white fish...and the Kalua pork is best I have ever had! There are plenty of options for all diets. Overall fantastic! Loved the story telling if queen Lili’uokalani. I learned much about Hawaii it’s rich culture and heritage.More
The story of Queen Liliuokalani was very interesting and well-told. I had expected a bit more excitement from the actual hula - the dancing was very low-key. Their night show (included with our ticket) Ha, was much more lively, though very very hot inside the...theater.
The food at the buffet was quite boring. For such a highly-rated attraction and for what I paid for the tickets, I expected a much more lavish and professionally put together meal. I felt like I was at the island food equivalent of an Old Country Buffet, and I won't eat there when I'm home.
The other odd thing is that you have to keep going up for refills of drinks other than water and some pink lemonade on the table that you have to share with the whole table. Additionally, the Kalua Pig was at a completely separate station that we almost totally missed. The food, including the Kalua Pig, was incredibly bland and boring. I expected more.More

This luau (and the whole PCC actually) is run in conjunction with Brigham Young, which is a Mormon university. They offer scholarships and student work experience for Polynesian students to study on Oahu. So no alcohol is on... More

1. Check the website. But like most of the tropical island, it can be very hot and humid during the day and a chill breeze wind during the night. Will encounter few rain as well since you'd coming in the wetter months (winter-spring months for northern hemisphere). I read a lot who suggesting rain jacket, but I found it was no use because it's too hot to wear the rain jacket (even when it's rain). Better prepare with some rain ponchos.
2. Yes there are water fountains around the park.
3. Yes you can bring water bottled into the park.
4. Yes you can. Short is preferred but prepare some rain ponchos. Light jacket might come in handy although I didn't wear them at all at the end of the night.
5. They have 3 days free, so you can come back within 3 business days from the first day you came. I encountered a heavy rain (the heaviest when I was in Hawaii tbh) and the show still went on. I just put on the rain poncho and all set.
6. Yes you can bring the backpack.
7. On Ha : Breath of Life -- a bit breeze but you wont feel a thing because it was always full packed show. I myself only wear a shirt and long pants (and half wet bcoz of the rain) but still managed.
