I was worried about the location when I saw that it was across the street from Safeway and not on the water, but once we got there I was instantly put at ease and the whole experience from the moment you check in until the end of the show was absolutely WONDERFUL! I’ve been to Luaus before on Oahu and Maui and this was by far the best “production” and the food was quite good as well! The performers, singers, dancers, fire dancers were all top notch and because it was more “indoors” they were able to really utilize lights and sound for a beautiful show! The main fire dancer guy was incredible! We had our two daughters 8 and 13 with us and I was worried they would be bored, but they absolutely loved it. A well oiled machine shuffling all of us through the buffet! I Highly recommend!

Outstanding evening with a variety of things to do. Local vendors are present with their wares (photography, jewelery, soaps, woodworking, etc). Food is a buffet, delicious. If you want to try poi, it is available on request. Together with the show, this event is well worth the price.

Beautiful setting, wonderful meal, dancers were fantastic with great costumes and the fire dancer was AWESOME! This is a great luau and definitely worth the money.

What a fun night! From pre-dinner music, dancing, cultural activities, great food, and awesome entertainment, this luau was a blast.

Staff was very nice, boat ride was smooth. fireworks and sunset were pretty.
