The beech side and water view Luau experience was thrilling, staff waere incredible from the entry to the end. Loved the fire dancers in the dark. It was our 25th wedding anoversary. so it was nice of the annoucer to invite us and other celebrating for a romantic dance along with the dancer couple in real natural big moon night. All was great- except the food ( I have directly sent them email regarding that)

Lori_K, Feb 2024
The show was very good! Our tour guide, Mo, was awesome! The food on the other hand wasn’t so great. We had chicken but no choice on pieces and we got thighs. We only like white meat. Had fish but no taste. The pork was good! Was glad we purchased the deluxe, we were treated like royalty! All in all was fun!
Great luau!

Fire dancers were amazing! Female dancers gave off a commercial vibe...plastic shiny outfits. Expectation was for a more authentic experience. The majority of the buffet food was ok... however, the pork was great.
