Went with my in-laws, early 80's, and my family which included my 2 kids which are 8 & 5. Since we were flexible with our dates, I e-mailed and asked which dates had the fewest people currently attending. They wrote back quickly suggesting a date and we picked that one...which was a Tuesday. 1st- general seating starts at 4:45pm. It... More

Royal Kona luau was a great show! Learned a lot about the different dances from all the Polynesian islands! Food was pretty good, great Kailua pork!. Sat with very nice people, so the evening was enjoyed!

I've been to a few different Luau's and this wasn't the worst but was far from the best. We had a buy one, get one which made it more economical, otherwise not sure it's worth the money. Food was good, a little salty, but overall tasty, I'd eat it again. The show was about an hour. There was no story,... More

Royal Kona Luau has a good show but that is all it has going for it. The food was put out way to early and was cold by the time they started the buffet line. Also there was not enough of a variety of food to choose from. The luau is right by the pool at the Royal Kona Resort... More

Went to the luau at Royal Kona Resort. Didn't really know what to expect. It ended up being a very nice experience. We learned a little history through dance routines. They roasted a pig underground which I've always wanted to try after watching bizarre foods. There was plenty of food to eat and all of it was quite tasty. Probably... More

I was so impressed with this luau. The food was wonderful. Pig was so juicy and so much other food to choose from. The show was terrific and the background of the ocean made it even better. Great show and worth the money to go and enjoy.

We saw the luau from our room for two days of our week but we went on Friday night. The food was good and the program was excellent. Had a very nice picture taken.

Excellent dancers and entertainers! Good food except for the poi but I'm not sure how it's supposed to taste anyway. Maybe like paste? My family of 5 got there early so we were 2nd in line. Would have been 1st but a couple cut in front of us. The 2 people who were collecting the tickets should have smiled more... More

They say it's open bar and we all thought the mai tais had alcohol but after 7 each and no buzz we figured it out- there is little to no alcohol in the mixed drinks. I feel we were tricked and I think you should get what you pay for. The food was good and the entertainment good but the... More
