No the best Luau I've been to as the show doesn't really begin till after you have ate and the bar has closed, but the food was really good and plenty of choices the bar was good as well with plenty of drinks on offer, staff where friendly and helpful, show was good, only negative is sloping tables sort of sitting on a a downhill gradient for most of the general seating

Great entertainment but they ran out of some of the food.

This was about what I expected - a very kitschy, touristy experience. Because that was what I expected, I'm glad I did it and I had a good time. The food was fair, but it was pretty cool when they opened the fire pit where the pig had been roasting all day.

The food on offer was great and it was good to try local food. The dances on offer are from all over the South Pacific. If you are looking for just Hawaiin traditional music, dance and stories I would try another Luau. You can also watch this show from the pool area of the Royal Kona Resort for free!

I am not very much into things many tourist like to do. I prefer spending time meeting locals and hearing their tips on what not to miss. This luau is very much one of those things I normally don't like to do but the show part was very entertaining. It was fun, and I learned a couple of things about the natives that I didn't know so that made it worth it. The food isn't particularly good, someone here in the reviews described it as "Cafeteria food" and I agree now. Not the quality of food that you would think for that kind of hotel.
The mai tais, sunset and show make it worth it though.

Food was good, along with the show, however lighting was poor making it somewhat difficult to see.

Poi tastes like wallpaper paste! Enjoyed the show, but had jet lag and had to head for our hotel early. The food wasn't labled so we didnt know what we were eating.

HI , they had said it was an open bar, not right , myself and other people were stunned when thr bar closed 2 hous after it opened without warning, we enjoyed our drinks, not rushed but when we went back for some dinner wine, the bar was closed, other people were just as upset., The dancing show was great and then they cane on with a fashion show fore a 1/2 hour, nobody was interested in a fashion show.The maitre d was telling jokes for some time and some people ate their meal which was ok and then left. It was not worth 77.00 $ There are better Lauas out there, we were very dissapointed.

I was a little disappointed both in the entertainment and the food. It wasn't the best luau I have been to in the Hawaiian Islands.
