We got there early and got pretty good seats for the show. I suggest you pay the small extra fee to get the closer seats. The show was really good and showcased the many forms of Polynesian dance including the fire dance. Seeing the pig...More

Very entertaining and an excellent portrayal of the Polynesian cultures that are represented. The traditional food and music is very good. A fun time.

I had heard not to expect much going into the Luau...but I was completely surprised at how wonderful it was! Granted, I'm a pretty sheltered mid-westerner, but I enjoyed every minute of the Luau. The band was great, the host was fabulous, and the dancers...More

You can't visit Hawaii and skip going to a luau. Since we were staying at the Royal Kona, opted for this one. Our room overlooked where the luau was being held, so got to see the set up. Not sure where they got the pork...More

The Royal Kona does a great job of feeding everyone an authentic Hawaiian Luau meal. All the MaiTais you want. Delicious pork. The dancing drumming performance is great. The MC describes all of the different islands, dances, celebrates birthdays and anniversaries of people in the...More

It's on a first come first serve basis. We got there about 45 minutes before check-in started and were close to the front of the line. If you want to pay the extra for preferred seating you pay at the time they check you in.
