“Good show but no photographer!”
Review of Oceanfront Lu'au

Oceanfront Lu'au
Ranked #35 of 72 Restaurants in Waimea
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 April 2017

Good show and fun being there. Food was good too. Unfortunately my expectation was to have a professional photographer before the Lu'au. This needs to be taken care of as other Lu'aus offer this and you have a good family picture of the event for years to remember.

We didn't know where to go on our first night. Glad we did as the buffet was bountiful, we got a mai tai with the price, and the show was so enjoyable. Our friends later told us that it was the best on the island and we agree.
They do tag on the 15% tip so be aware and don't pay to much as the service is really not worth 20%.

This was at Mauna Kea Beach resort. Unfortunately they had to move our luau indoor because of the hurricane warning :( after all it didn't rain at all.
The show was great. friendly people. good history of Hawaii and great dance.
The food was OK, not impressive or the best food i had. but a good variety... pasta ... chicken for kids .. some ahi poke ... pork was OK ... good selection of dessert.

the 100 pp price does not include the automatic tip and tax!!!!!!

This was our 5th Luau - and easily the worst by far. This is the only Luau we've been to on the Big Island - however ones in Maui and Oahu are much better. Negatives : only 1 drink included! Very disorganized...people were lined up for over 30 minutes without anyone letting us know where to go/stand/etc. The whole check-in process is very unorganized. The worst part -- THERE WAS A 20% TIP INCLUDED IN OUR BILL!! WE HAD TO PAY IT!!!!! Now this is a luau - similar to a buffet, where servers don't really do much, if anything. We each only got one drink - so the waiter had to bring out 2 drinks - and for that, he got 20% of a very expensive bill. In the grand scheme of things, not a huge deal - but it definitely left a horrible memory! Hopefully we get back to the Big Island someday - but we will never be attending this luau again.
