“Good Luau”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

We enjoyed this luau the show was really good. The food was alright, the drinks were good. The staff were friendly, The show tells a story of the journey to a new land and was told beautifully. There was plenty of parking even though we opted to take the bus. The grounds offered things to do until show started, taste rum, shop at the booths, walk through the house.
We have been to other Luaus, the other one we have attended on other Islands have just shown dancing of different cultures that make up the Islands. This luau tells a story so you must watch all of it to understand wants happening.
Good show!

“Well orchestrated, gluten free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

This luau includes mai tais, and there are many vendors on the grounds. The pre-show train ride is a lot of fun for families and youngsters since there is a stop with generous time to feed boars and goats. The luau show had a very high production value and we were all impressed. The food was decent and there are many gluten free and vegetarian options, one of the few buffets where I have gotten my fill! They even had a banana pie dessert that was gluten free! I would definitely do this luau again, you'll be glad you chose this one!

“Stunning Luau”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Don't go to this luau for the food....
But it is worth it for the show. It was great entertainment done in a theatrical style. The dancers were professional and not bad on the eyes. They had a lot of activities going on here before the show. First set up is a small fair with locals selling their goods. They teach the hula, have some photo ops set up and there are free drinks are included. You can also walk around the rest of the grounds with their shops and the rum tasting.
The food had local flavors like kahlua pork, teriyaki chicken, mahi mahi and of course, poi! Among other things. The food was ok, but certainly nothing special.
The real treat is the show. It tells the story of a couple separating when the man leaves with a group to find new land for their tribe, which ends up being Hawaii. There is fire dancing and live music and graceful dancers. It was a great show.

A great night out, food was so so, but the drinks were awesome, get the Mai Tai's ! Also when the greeter takes you to your seat, put something on the chairs otherwise you might find someone else has. Get there early so you get to choose where you sit at your table.

“Hawaiian Experience”

Why go to Hawaii and not enjoy a Luau!! The grounds are beautiful and the culture is alive. The dinner was well put together and delicious and the show was great.
