"Beautiful performance!"
November, 2018
Enter the yard with a shell lei and a smile that makes your evening. Watch the sunset and listen to the band. Eat local cuisine watching the moon rise among the palms. And then the dancers come out telling their histories and stories in dance. This was my experience at Voyagers of the Pacific luau......the stage backs onto an unbelievably beautiful ocean view. The food was excellent. Well organized. Worth a visit!

"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!!!

"Can't Beat the Price"

We had a wonderful Luau at the Royal Kona. The food was very good, with a good variety. The setting is awesome right on a Lava coast. The show was very good, and best of all it was reasonably priced. We did a couple of Luaus while we were in Hawaii and found this one to be the best value. The parking was only $3, which again was a good value.

"Ran out of Lomi Lomi and mahi"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed January 05, 2019 NEW
We have attended many luaus over the years but this has to rank as the lowest both in entertainment and food. The venue is good and well organized. Soft drinks, Mai Tais, and coffee tea and water are included, and they are quick to offer up extra rum for your drink. The quality of the food was also good, but, when we got to eat the Lomi Lomi salmon was gone as was the mahi, as well as salad and even pineapple slices, among other ordinary items. The entertainment costumes and show left a lot to be desired, poor quality dancers, terrible lounge singer, and a very small cast left us wanting more. The band itself was good. There was nobody on hand to take a complaint to, the workers were unable to point me in the direction of a supervisor. All in all a disappointing experience, and we had two first time guests who did not have a great experience.

"A Decent Luau with Dry Kalua Pork"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 02, 2019 NEW
My sons and nieces wanted to attend a luau while in Hawaii so we chose this one since it fit our vacation plans the best and it was the least expensive. The experience was good and they all liked the food and show. It started to rain during food service, and the staff did an excellent job getting the people through the food service and the stage dried up so the show could go on (which is why I gave 4 stars instead of 3). Pros: - Friendly staff, passed out free ponchos during the rain - Drinks were decent - Most of the food was good - Performers were good - Staff did a great job drying up so the show could be performed Cons: - The grounds were small and on a slope so the tables were slanted - There were not a lot of pre-show activities or opportunities to learn more about the culture - The Kalua Pork was DRY. I don't believe the Kalua Pork that was served was from the pig they dug-out from the Imu Ceremony as the started food service within a couple of minutes of the pig being pulled out the Imu.

We arrived about 30-40 minutes early and were still about 20 people back in the line. We planned to arrive early so we could upgrade to VIP and it was worth it. Better, closer to the stage seating and they release the front VIP tables first to the dinner line. The show was great and the sunset was AMAZING! Food was excellent and you could go back as many times as you wanted. My husband enjoyed the Mai Tais with extra rum. Book online and arrive early!
