Rock-A-Hula sounded fantastic and I was really excited to be going to this show. What a let down. Characters not convincing and a very average show. Sat there thinking,"a new pair of shoes or this show?": The luau and entertainment early in the evening was from the heart and we were entertained by very nice young people. They certainly went...

This was way better than I thought it was going to be. The entire cast had great energy and danced full out. Same with the singers. And the fire dancer was fun to watch too.

Title says it all really . A lot of money for a 2nd rate show . Theatre was too hot, impersonators were passable , mai tau was weak . It really wasn't anything to rave about at all and certainly not worth the money . Best part of the night was watching the lady at the front just about throw... More

This is a good way to spend an evening in Waikiki. We did the dinner and show. Food and drinks were good, and the show was very entertaining. Elvis, Michael, and Celine. Dancers were good, and the fire dancer was great. We sat between the stage and the theater seating, almost center stage. They set up tables six deep, each... More

We went to see the Rock a Hula show our first night in Hawaii. What a way to start vacation! It was a great show! It lasted about an hour, and left us wanting more. The performers impersonated Elvis, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson. The Michael Jackson impersonator, in particular, was wonderful. There was a great blend of all kinds... More

Great show with great talent. Only complaint, a lot of stairs to climb to go into the theater from the lobby, both up and down. All that was said was if you couldn't climb stairs to wait in the lobby. There is a difference between unable to climb stairs to have difficulty. I would have stayed in lobby if I... More

Performers impersonated Elvis, MJ, and Whitney Houston. All did a great job that left you wanting more songs. There are fire dancers for some island flavor.

Attended the show with my 15-year-old niece and the show was great! The Michael Jackson impersonator was fantastic and it was a great blend of island dancing & pop culture. Great for the whole family.

Wow, great show. Blend of Polynesia, modern and oldies. We had Celine Dion, Michael Jackson and Elvis look-alikes and they were awesome. Great singing, Michael’s fantastic smooth shuffling, Celines’s awesome voice and The King was great. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g60982-d2587086-Reviews-Rock_A_Hula-Honolulu_Oahu_Hawaii.html
