You'll be busy from start to finish at the PCC but you'll almost certainly come out smiling. From the multiple islands full of friendly, funny and talented 'natives' to the great IMAX show, tasty luau and brilliant evening show, there's a lot to recommend at...More

The most difficult review to write is the one where, within yourself, your opinion is divided. On one hand the effort the centre has gone to in creating the different cultural worlds and the opportunity given to the young people with employment is dispelled somewhat...More

There is so much to see at the Polynesian Cultural Center I would highly recommend spending the full day (12-9pm). We went for the ambassador package with a group tour guide who was fabulous, luau and the Ha: Breath of Life show. Our 7 year...More
