Dances and story-telling were beautiful & engaging. The show picks up after the dinner. The fire act was mind blowing. Music throughout the show was lovely & you can enjoy Mai Tai’s! Few cons: - Food was just okay. - Seating was awkward & felt like a banquet hall. 8 people on a table. So you’d be sharing the table with others. Would’ve personally preferred smaller table. - The train ride part was bit unclear. Would’ve loved to add it to our package but couldn’t find an option to.

This is a wonderful exhibition of hula for any age--we ranged from 5 - 72-- and any experience with the cultural dance form. The venue managed very good management of all of us with drinks and salads and the buffet line--and desserts! The food was good basic luau fare. But the show and its lighting and costumes, and excellent hula authentic hula cannot be beat!

We loved it! We got beautiful leis. Lovely crafts for a little shopping beforehand, wonderful band and music throughout, good meal (no poi, however). The post-dinner show was spectacular. The dancers enacted a story of coming to Hawaii, and the dancing was great, particularly the fire dancers, which included female fire dancers. Loved it all.

The food was excellent, the program was superior, and the service was excellent

Amazing show and great food. Worth the price for sure!!
