Fantastic show, wonderful food, amazing atmosphere and great drinks. The setting was incredible as we were able to see our first Hawaiian sunset
Good food, great experience.
Wanted to see a luau, and this was the highest rated. Servers were great food was very good(I liked the beef best) The Luau was great, the dancers and stories they told were interesting.
A Dream Comes True
I enjoyed the wonderful food, entertainment and of course, the view of the ocean!! It was an amazing experience. I hope to come back again.
This was really wonderful. The show was spectacular. The dancers were so smooth and graceful. The fire dancer was my favorite.
The food was scrumptious and the drinks flowed
It was a great way to...
It was a great way to start our visit to hawaii. We got off the plane, booked into our resort and went straight to the Laua just like in the movies.
We stayed at Royal Kona Resort and saw a long line for buffet at night, then realized the hotel offers this great Luau. We quickly reserved the seats for the next day. They have general admission and VIP admission tickets. VIP tickets come with a premium seat, early access to dinner, Tiki mugs, Kukui nut lei, and one complimentary photo. We got VIP tickets and I think it was worth it. We sat right in front of the stage and did not wait for the buffet line. The Tiki mug was super cute and the leis were beautiful. We decided to have our photo taken before the dinner started, and the photographer was super friendly! The photo he took came out great!!
Our waiter was very attentive and we had endless Mai Tai. The dinner was tasty, and the show was great. The only thing I would say is that for the price we are paying, the plates didn't look good. The plates they use are like cafeteria plates. We paid $212 per person for VIP seats, so maybe they can provide a bit upgraded plates??
This was the most amazing experience we had the whole trip. Manta rays were amazing. We would go again the next day. Staff was great.
Fun times at the luau
Food, drinks service and entertainment was very good! Sunset was amazing even with a little rain things were perfect. What one would expect fr a Hawaiian luau!
We had to go to overflow parking on the street. This caused us to walk through traffic. On the way back to the car I fell and hurt my knees. Not a good experience.
Overpriced for mediocre food and a small show
If an endless stream of mai-tais is your thing, then you'd love this. Unfortunately I was expecting more. Other beverages were available, but you had to request them, and sometimes the waiters forgot. The buffet was small. Some of the dishes were tasty, but it lacked variety which could be very problematic for people with dietary restrictions. I was expecting to see the whole roast pig and some sort of a ceremony surrounding that, but there was nothing like that. I'd seen in the comments something about seeing manta rays, but there was nothing like that either. The performers were talented, but the cast was small, so the whole experience felt quite underwhelming. The whole thing was over in just 2 hours. On top of that, they had the nerve to charge for photos and parking.
