It was amazing my wife...
Adrian_K, Mar 2023
It was amazing my wife and I first time in Waikiki we will be back soon the luau and food and show was second to none the staff and performers job well done.
Well worth the money!
Rory_T, Mar 2023
The food was excellent. I especially liked the roast pig. The show was different than I expected. It was much more than a hula show, there was an Elvis and a Michael Jackson impersonators that performed. They really got the crowd going.
Athenais_A, Mar 2023
From dinner to stage, it’s a wonderful time. The dancers and singers are so welcoming. The whole show was nonstop good times and fun atmosphere!
Fine not comfortable
Brenda_S, Mar 2023
The food was fine. The Rock a Hula show was amazing. The problem was seating. You were crammed in like cattle, could not easily move around to use restroom or even get to buffet line when it was your tables turn. They dance where people could not see because you couldn't turn your chair around. The tables definitely need to be reconfigured before I would go back.
Brad_R, Mar 2023
So much fun. The food was great, fast fire, the dancing and Elvis and Michael to boot.
Darlene_P, Mar 2023

Sarah_W, Mar 2023
Great experience! Good food, and the show was great. The performers were all excellent and it was very entertaining and high energy.
Claudia_R, Mar 2023
Outstanding performance. It was different from the typical luau. The buffet was great and lots of good choices to choose from. Most importantly, my 10 yr old son loved it, especially the impersonators-his fav singers.
john_m, Mar 2023
The whole show was fantastic Elvis !! Michael Jackson!! Costume were beautiful I would differently recommend to all my family!!!
Not an authentic experience.
Stuart_M, Mar 2023
Not an authentic experience at all. It felt appropriated and contrite. I would not recommend this experience to others
Marylu_W, Mar 2023
The show was awesome! Better than expected. We were impressed by the fire show and the impersonators were very realistic too .
Not the best
HATAYA_M, Mar 2023
The food wasn’t taste good and expected to have more on Hawaiian food items. The pig and roasted beef way to the back. Why?
I went to the show where else, it was much nicer and more interesting. My family expected to see more Hawaiian show than the two popular singers!! Not at this show !!
I purchased the VIP...
Amber_B, Mar 2023
I purchased the VIP tickets which I felt like there was nothing VIP about the luau. Everyone ate at the same time, everything was the same as the other attendees. There was only a few options of cocktails & the beer choice was cheap. The performers only went to one side of the audience.
Great pork with a side of Fire dancing
Brandt_E, Mar 2023
The pork was fantastic. Salmon/tomato dish so-so. Ok desserts. The show was ok- sort of like Branson, Mo. Except for the fire dancing guy. He was phenomenal. Really neat, and worth waiting through the Ok performances that preceded it.
Glad we went
Joyce_M, Mar 2023
The show was amazing. The entertainment was great. The food was just ok. Little bland. Little disappointed in it. The fruit for dessert was really good and fresh.
