This is my husband and I's second time to see a Rock-a-Hula show (first time was 2 years ago, for our honeymoon). This time for our 2nd anniversary, we brought our parents along with us. Being their first time in Hawaii, I immediately suggested to see a Rock-a-Hula show to enjoy and relax on a Sunday evening. We were all... More

I love music, culture and food so my sister & I fully indulged on this holiday to Honolulu. From the luau presentation to the 'stars' performances everything was A+ for us. However the crowd was a bit quiet & we love live concerts so we were overly enthusiastic & that surprised some around us. Highly recommended must-do in Hawai'i!

The Rock-A-Hula show was our favorite show! We had the luau package which was great food along with a show after which was also well done. After dinner we were escorted to the auditorium and thrilled to be in the first row of the balcony :) The "Elvis", "Michael Jackson", and "Celine Dion" performers were excellent!!! "Elvis" even gave out... More

The performers are all so wonderful! I really enjoyed the Hawaiian theme!! Elvis is great! All the actors signed autographs after the show and allowed you to take pictures with them.

My sister and I went for my birthday, and they gave us the royal treatment. We were able to meet Elvis before the show, and during the show he wished me a happy birthday, came off of the stage, put a really nice leigh around my neck and gave me a kiss on the cheek.......oh, and the food was also...

Besides the great entertainment of Elvis, Michael Jackson and Celine Dion, you are treated to an Authentic Hawaiian Adventure with great costumes, and Dancers. The Fire Twirler had to be a world champ, as no one could have topped his performance. We opted for the VIPexperience to celebrate my Sister's 60th Birthday. Elvis came down Mid-Show and gave her a... More

Wife and I came to celebrate her birthday and was treated to quite the experience. The dinner buffet beforehand was crowded but with great food, drinks, and service.

I was apprehensive about going to this concert. The couple we went with had gone several years ago and raved about it. I went. It was over 2 hours of complete entertainment! No intermission, no breaks! We got the $55. tickets and it was "fabulous, fantastic, great! The Impressionist were spot on! From the Hawaiian tribute to the dancing it... More
