"Fun time luau"
June, 2017
The food is ok. The cost is for the show. A dinner and a live show on the shores for Hawaii watching the sunset is going to cost you money. Nothing in Hawaii is cheap That being said the music was good, extra rum in the Mai tais is good, and it's a good and informative show. Get in line early. There is an option to buy a up front seat. It may be worth it for you. We didn't get it and we had a great view. If you make it as far as kona go to the show. How many will you ever get to see.

"Not worth the money"
April, 2015
We went to this luau as our big outing for the day. We were all looking forward to it. It turned out to be so disorganized that we couldn't even enjoy ourselves. The seating was terrible so you could hardly see the stage. The food wasn't what it said on the website when we booked. There was an arts and crafts table where we could make bracelets. It was so disorganized that grown women kept cutting in front of my daughter while she waited patiently. I had to keep saying something to the girl running it. And she still skipped my child! Then the guy who was drawing on people's arms kept saying he was running out of time and couldn't finish. But he was still allowing a line to form and for people to wait instead of announcing it to everyone. The food wasn't good. The only good part was the fire dancer. This isn't worth the cash. Use your money at SeaQuest for a snorkel tour. That was worth every penny!!!

Tip: Don't spend your money on this! And don't expect any of the staff to be friendly!

I had heard not to expect much going into the Luau...but I was completely surprised at how wonderful it was! Granted, I'm a pretty sheltered mid-westerner, but I enjoyed every minute of the Luau. The band was great, the host was fabulous, and the dancers were amazing! I absolutely loved that they featured different dances from all of the ancestral heritage of local Hawaiians. I would definitely recommend this to others and would even spend another $100 to go again!

We resisted going to a luau and finally decided to do it this trip. It was fine. The food was fine. The entertainment was fine. The staff was friendly. The entertainers were friendly and talented. I don't need to do a luau again. If you are going to do one, this is a good one. Open bar for 2 hours. good view. You kinda have to in Hawaii.

"Go for the entertainment, not the food"

You can't visit Hawaii and skip going to a luau. Since we were staying at the Royal Kona, opted for this one. Our room overlooked where the luau was being held, so got to see the set up. Not sure where they got the pork the night of our luau, since there was already a pan of it on the buffet line before the ceremonial pig was unearthed. The reasons to go: The lovely MC and her stories The band The dancers The open bar The ocean surf in the background The pineapple upside down cake The potato-mac salad The reasons to pass: The rest of the food I give the Royal Kona luau a recommendation, just don't expect much from the buffet.
