This is a difficult review to make because we REALLY wish we hadn't done this Luau...but that shouldn't prevent anyone else from doing it!! We had a very long day (vow renewal in the morning) and we were still jet-lagged (California style...so everything feels like 3 hours later!).
We were told to arrive for motorcoach pickup at 4:20...we were there...by about 5pm we found out that the agents were delayed because of traffic...we finally got on the road for what should have been a 30 minute ride...and hour-and-a-half later through bummer-to-bumper traffic we arrived at the beach location. It was already after 7pm (felt like 10pm) and our 9 year old was crying and saying that he just wanted to "go home."
Also because we were so late all of the people who had driven themselves or come by bus from a different location had had to wait for us without any appetizers or anything but drinks. Everyone was a little grumpy. NOT THEIR FAULT!!
The Luau itself was good. Standard pig-in-a-pit...great food...good show...excellent dancers. Probably kind of an insult to say but we were making jokes about how much the MC sounded like the Disney recording in The Tiki Room.
It's a really good luau but the Honolulu traffic is a nightmare and if there is an accident (or a few) you just can't tell how long it's going to take to get somewhere.
All in all, I'd still recommend this luau to someone who wants the experience but I certainly doubt that we'll be doing it again.
