Overpriced and show only lasted 45 minutes, not an hour as listed. Mostly talking, not dancing. Intro was overkill.

My daughter and I enjoyed the show. It had history and nice entertainment. The food was average, the setting was outstanding.

Authentic family-run luau. Very nice. Gratuity 15% was included in our bill. They do ask for extra gratuity if you would choose. Beautiful opportunity for photographs and sunsets.

The Luau was fantastic. The buffet was plentiful and all very good. The entertainment was spectacular and even teaches you a few things of Hawaiian culture. The location was absolutely stunning. Highly Recommended.

What is the best way other than driving yourself to get from Kailua to this resort for the Luau?
