Probably the best buffet food I've ever had. Quick and friendly service. Entertainment was standard luau fare. Waddled out from how much we ate and drank. Family friendly with the kids buffet open right away.

Food was really good! We were not expecting the buffet quality to be so good based on previous luau experiences. The luau itself was very entertaining. VIP is worth the extra money.

This is probably the best of the luaus on the Big Island. But don't expect a gourmet meal. Instead, expect a busy buffet with foods typical of the luau feast...along with some mainland staples. Ali'ii seating includes table service tackling an open bar for you....More

Shows are getting shorter. No covers in case of rain. Strictly outdoor seating. Would prefer an indoor luau next time. Sitting through this in the pouring rain was no fun!More

This is our 2nd trip to Hawaii and our 2nd luau. I don't think we would do another. We did enjoy the show but not for the price. And the food was average at best. We upgraded our tickets to the Ali which was totally...More

When we were planning our trip, others stated you don't need to attend a luau to experience Hawaii. You don't, but we absolutely loved this. We considered it to be a way to learn the culture, entertainment, a meal and an experience. We upgraded our...More

Since we were in Hawai'i, we decided to watch a couple of luaus. When my wife was making reservations, she noticed that certain luaus were only available on different days. One of the luaus that we watched was this one. The luau is located in...More

There is not enough space to really tell you how much fun this event is. The entertainment is very well done and the food is so delicious. Go in the morning to witness the pit and pig preparation and buy your photos!

OK. I have been to HI few times and avoided luau's in general as overpriced tourist traps. The difference between a Polynesian vs Hawaiian luau lost on us. But, this time, we decided to go for it. Picked this particular luau because we were staying...More

The luau is outdoors. But the venue is really nice and private. At some point, you can see the sunset to the left of the stage when facing the stage.
