Paradise Cove - awesome Luau
Melanie_B, Sep 2023
Cousin Fifi and Captain Danny picked us up on time. On the way to Paradise Cove Cousin Fifi was entertaining and very informative as to what to expect. The activities were spread out. Paradise Cove is well organized as the people were very helpful if we had questions. The food was delicious and there was a variety of different options. The entertainment was wonderful. We would highly recommend it.

The bus pickup worked out good #2 and our girl host was funny. I’ve been to several Luas but this was the worse. We only paid for basic $140 and felt like 2nd hand citizen; sat on far right set of tables. The buffet onky served chicken, pork and a small piece of breaded fish. Only choc cake for dessert. My biggest issue was having to sit at our dinner table to see show, which was hard to see. Then on the beach next to us, there was loud music playing from another event and was so distracting. Our Mom who is 75 never been to Luau and she couldn’t see or hear show. Most disappointing. I went on line asking for a partial refund. This Luau only worth $90. I will continue to contact you. There isn’t a button below to say family 3 adults

Really enjoyed the luau itself our bus guide Cousin Mo was excellent had a great time. 😉 The history of the luau great and roasted pig was delicious
Loved it!
Nick_L, Sep 2023
According to my tour guide a proper luau needs to be on the beach. I had some doubts about doing one. Would it be three hours of hula dancing and awful food? Some pics of other luaus online were not great looking. This experience really exceeded my expectations. The scenery was some of the most beautiful we saw on the island. All the performers were having a great time. Lots of variety to the performances and the fire dancing was incredible. Lots of humor and romance. Great for couples. I got the basic package so you only get the shell lei, think I would pick an upgrade next time to get the flower lei. Our bus host Nui was one of the coolest people we met in Hawaii. Thank you to everyone there for a great experience. This is a must do.
Very fun luau
Joan_F, Sep 2023
This luau was well executed and entertaining. There were activities before the dinner and show, which included a canoe ride, throwing games, coconut gathering, sunset viewing, shopping and orchid bracelets to wear. The program itself was good, especially the fire dancers. Food was typical of most luaus. A very enjoyable experience.
Lovely time
