We purchased these tickets because they were cheaper and centrally located. Having been to several others (PCC, paradise Cove) the food here is NOT buffet style although servings are massive. Taste is good. The show was good but what bothered me the most was how...More

The Hale Koa works hard to always show their guests a nice time. The luau is nice but under a roof on a stage. Takes a little away from that beachside arena. Food is not served buffet but it is a nice evenings meal and...More

We agree with many reviews in that the show was entertaining and they kept the audience involved. However, the welcome drinks definitely seemed to be watered down and the food was incredibly salty—to the point we couldn’t eat some of it. Seemed to be quite...More

The show was well done and involved the audience enough to keep everyone engaged. The pre-show activities were refreshing. The food was way over salted and kind of disappointing. Otherwise this would have rated higher. One of the better luaus on island.

Buy your tickets on-line before you get here, it's ALWAYS SOLD OUT! They opened up the grounds for a nice "mix n mingle" before the festivities. A warm welcome from the staff, traditional music filled the air, and arts and crafts set the mood. Dinner...More

I really wanted to give it five stars. The entertainment was excellent, but a little watered down and white washed and took away from the Hawaiian vibe. Still worth the money. Drinks, food, and shows, you can't go wrong with that.
