While my wife and I were on vacation we went to to the Royal Kona Resort Luau and had a good time. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 was due to two reasons. 1. The parking attendant had us...More

Reading some of the negative reviews about feeling it was crowded and a cattle call I can understand what they are talking about. However, having been to quite a few luau's I am unsure how one could expect anything different. Most visitors to Hawaii will...More

Third time attending this Luau and it is always a hit! The kids love the entertainment and the food. Mai Tai and well drinks included. The seating is great and fun for the whole family. We took the in-laws this time and they loved it!

I got there at 4:10 and ALL OF THE FRONT ROWS OF TABLES WERE RESERVED. I felt like I was in a cattle call. The open bar had a very limited selection. The Mai Tai's were extremely weak. I was left wondering if there was...More

This is more of an exploration of Polynesian dances than a Hawaii luau but it was a very enjoyable evening. The music was well coordinated and entertaining as the band's MC interjected some narrative as they played to add a personal touch. The luau itself...More

This was not our favorite event while in Kona. We were told to get there at 4 so we could get premium seating, so we did (we were first in line) and were told there wasn't any available that night. We waited a long time...More

My family of 10 had reservations for this Luau. When we arrived, we were met with an extremely long line to get in. The line moved very slowly, so it was disappointing to spend so much of our time at the beginning of the luau...More

We paid the extra $7 for premium seating and it was well worth it. Got in line to purchase the upgrade about an hour before check in ttime and go to sit right in front of the stage. Food was awesome and the entertainment topnotch.

It is recommended that you make future reservations and you have to pay at that time. So not sure how that works. Walk ups are welcome as long as they are not sold out and I know they take cash then.
