"GREAT TIME!"
October, 2016
Getting to tour the aquarium and the hands on activities were a plus. Got to make a headpiece so much fun. Sunset was breathtaking. We had VIP package so got to set closer to front. Show is excellent. 10 year old fire dancer was amazing. The food and drinks were good. This is the only luau I have been to so have nothing to compare it to . I really enjoyed it and recommend it.

We bought the deluxe package but did not receive it. Rushed greeting, no explanation of how things work. We could not see the fire dancing at all. I do not recommend this. Sad😔

Had the most enjoyable experience and already planning our return in 2018. The venue was amazing. My wife Julie and daughter Nicole made this surprise (my 70th) the best birthday experience ever.

Such a great time and a must do when visiting the island ! With so many luau's and so many options it is hard to choose. This was the best one for the amount, the activities and the performances were amazing. The food was great and the drinks were even better ! Must do when in Hawaii.

We had a group of 9. We bought our tickets way ahead of time on the premis that we were to have "everything the VIP has , except table service". Which, means we were able to do the buffet. The food was good. The entertainment was not near as authentic as were expecting. It was....entertaining

We really enjoyed the show. I'm a picky eater so I ate some but not all. VIP is definitely the way to go. They serve u instead of standing at the buffet. Will visit again
