Beautiful setting. Very entertaining throughout the meal and show. The musicians, dancers, and gracious emcee were all genuine and engaged. Fire dance was particularly good. We have been to several luaus on other islands and this was our favorite.

Overpriced and show only lasted 45 minutes, not an hour as listed. Mostly talking, not dancing. Intro was overkill.

My daughter and I enjoyed the show. It had history and nice entertainment. The food was average, the setting was outstanding.

Authentic family-run luau. Very nice. Gratuity 15% was included in our bill. They do ask for extra gratuity if you would choose. Beautiful opportunity for photographs and sunsets.

The Luau was fantastic. The buffet was plentiful and all very good. The entertainment was spectacular and even teaches you a few things of Hawaiian culture. The location was absolutely stunning. Highly Recommended.

Food was better than your usual Luau or buffet fare. Entertainment was excellent and the location was amazing.

We were there as a family group of ten, and while we generally enjoyed a night together, it was mostly an excercise in rolling our eyes at the corny performances. The historical vignets were informative, but so much was pure corn. Shirtless cowboys in white...More
