Great Drinks and Nice View
Newon_V, Mar 2022
It was nice. This was my first time at a Luau so I really had no expectations. Food was okay. The drinks were really good. View was AMAZING and the show was great. Overall very nice. I would suggest a better variety of food.
mya_t, Mar 2022
Great experience, Enjoyed everything. My favorite part of the Laua was the fire and hulu dancing. Mahalo!
Melissa_P, Mar 2022
I was disappointed with this. I thought we’d have time to do the activities and sit and enjoy the show but I spent at least 45 minutes in the drink line before dinner and by the time I sat down the sun had set the w show had begun and the food was cold. The entertainment was very good but I feel like I missed a lot of what could have been enjoyed. If they had brought water to the tables that would’ve helped a lot. I did the orchid experience.

Sunset and a Show
Tyler_L, Feb 2022
The view of the sunset was gorgeous! We upgraded to the second tier for seating and felt that we were close enough to the stage. We arrived a little after the recommended time and missed out on a few things, so be prompt! We were overall satisfied with the food and drinks. No issues with staff; they were friendly. We had fun, and this was overall a pretty good experience. The price was maybe a little bit more than the experience was worth, but everyone says you have to go to a Luau while in Hawaii!
Not bad.
James_L, Feb 2022
I rated as average bc I don’t have anything to compare it to. Seating was very good however we paid extra for it. Food was average. Setting was beautiful on the water. Transportation was excellent but not sure why we arrived so far in advance of the luau.
