We attended the Luauat the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel and although we are “locals”, we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The food was delicious!! They served authentic kalua pig, Lomi salmon, poi & Haupia which was served to perfection. Their buffet also had several salads, pork,...More

Great customer service and everything ran like clockwork. The food was delicious and the show wonderful. Dancers were great and put on a very entertaining show. One thing that kept this from being a 5 - the setting needs to be more tropical and festive....More

We booked this one instead of others, mainly due to the proximity of the luau to our hotel. We had heard some great reviews about the luau at the PCC but this one meant we didn’t have to travel an hour either way. We paid...More

Attended on Thursday 10th May 18, performers were great, entrance was easy too. Food was good, no issues other than would have been nice is a little hotter, but it’s a buffet so guess it goes with saying that’s normal. Doesn’t have the pig being...More

The show was outstanding! However ... the buffet food was stone cold - and we were one of the first to get food! Given that Hilton caters for many conferences at this facility, one would think that they would have the ability to keep the...More

High quality performances and buffet food was better than expected. The downside is the rooftop location which does get very windy.

The luau is not held on the rooftop on Fridays. Instead, there is something held on the lawn adjacent to the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon. Not sure about the view from there.

The tickets that you are referring to could be the one that are given as an incentive to view the Hilton Grand Vacation. This would be your choice and could be what you have heard about.
