This place was great from opening to closing -we did it all and had a wonderful time. Each cultural village had so much to offer, more than we could take advantage of and all the “shows” were educational and entertaining. Hosts and performers showed wonderful...More

Was a fun day with not enough time to do everything. Didn’t arrive until afternoon but made it to all the islands but missed the canoe ride and side activities. Great family experience! Loved it. Skip Hawaii movie- not that informative, was hoping for more...More

This place is worth every penny. You can spend the whole day there. Our car trip from Waikiki to this location had breathtaking views and scenic beauty as well. The “musical” at the end is too long for me though and could use some more...More

The night live show is quite stunning, very well staged. The luau (buffet dinner) was delicious. The park which consists of the 6 main polynesian islands culture is truly fascinating.

Best show on earth! Visited all the villages and learned so much. A bus picks you up in Honolulu and brings you back after the incredible show. Couldn't be any easier. First class experience.

We have had the good fortune to attend several Luau's and this by far was the best! Well organized and the show was fantastic, well put together with very talented artists. The dinner was nice too, the show was entertaining, the fire dancer was amazing.

A day at the PCC is so fun! Spend the afternoon visiting the island villages of Polynesia and learning a bit about each one. Tonga and Samoa are usually everyone's favorites, but the others are fun and interesting, too. The luau is a great dinner...More
