If you don't want to spend an entire day on a luau, Germaine's is for you. Mai Tai's, buffet dinner, Polynesian dancing, commemorative picture with party - check. What else could you possibly need? You can drive in or schedule a pick up from your hotel. Price is lower than it's competitors. Food is good. Entertainment is amazing. They keep... More

This is the place the locals go to for a Luau. Its fun and the entertainment is quite spectacular. The food to excellent, and if you want the real experience, go for the higher rate.

Wow! What an experience! OK, I have to admit from the start that I sell tours and activities to visitors from a desk in a Waikiki hotel. So I want to make it clear that because of the nature of my position at work and it's requirement for me to experience it from my client's point of view to better... More

On our first trip to Honolulu, my wife and I wanted to experience a Hawaiian Luau. I read perhaps a hundred or more reviews of the popular luaus on the island and had a difficult time deciding which one to attend. Whatever I decided, the luau had to pick us up at our hotel, be located on a beach and... More

We had a lovely night . Greg our coach host was very entertaining to and from the venue.Perfect balmy night and we sat with some nice people from USA . Plenty of food but the highlight was the various cultural dances.Very colourful costumes and those taking part really looked like they were enjoying performing.All in all a good night.would recommend.

The whole experience is incredible the moment you're on the bus with your guide learning about Hawaiian culture and language. The rest of the night is about experiencing historical Hawaiian dances, eating Hawaiian food and drinking local cocktails, as well as learning the Hawaiian dance by professionals was unforgettable!

From the moment we arrived things were well organized and smooth going. The location is perfect for a luau. Beautiful views of the ocean. The cast are all lovely and welcoming. If you book online you receive a nice insulated bag! The shell lei is a nice touch too! The mai tai drink is great. We purchased the tiki cup... More

Show was somewhat entertaining. Food wasn't great and the selection wasn't the best. No need for seconds. We drove to the luau and there was a difference on how we were treated compared to the quest who came by tour bus. Kids were excited about receiving a lei, only to be disappointed by a cheap shell lei. Drinks came in... More
