We greatly enjoyed this family activity. It was intended to be part of a trip to Hawaii we had purchased for our whole family in celebration of my parent's 60th wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, they were unable to attend due to my mom's health. Smith's Tropical Paradise Luau refunded me the price of their luau tickets, and we were able to enjoy the dinner and the show as a smaller group. The only concern we had was that we felt the dinner was slightly misrepresented by pictures of a sunset on the beach. The luau was not on the beach. Our plan for a family photo with the sun setting on the beach did not materialize, and we had to pay 20 to receive the photo they took of us upon immediately entering the gate. We had also hoped to have more time walking around the grounds, but by the time the train tour was complete, the dinner was ready to be served. The show began shortly thereafter. All in all, it was a beautiful evening, and the food was wonderful!
This was our very first luau and it was great!! We will would absolutely book it again on our next trip!!
This was far more than just a Luau. We got a narrated tour of the grounds and gardens on a trolley, an explanation of how the pig is roasted, a great meal that was served in a very organized manner, followed by an entertaing show performed in a small outdoor auditorium.. I highly recommend Smith's Luau.
The food was wonderful and the people were very accommodating and gracious .

Beatuful grounds and excellent luau and entertainment
Wow! We really enjoyed this tour. The pilot, Brian, was awesome. When he spotted some whales he was determined to make sure that we saw them too. Way cool. It was an awesome day for a flight around Kauai.
It was what we needed... Even in the rain the staff made it work and the show was worth seeing. Banquet style dinning is never the preferred but the food was good as well. Everyone needs to see a Luau while in Hawaii, the Smith's family will make it worth your while.
Great food and a great setting. The entertainment portion of the luau was average based upon other luaus we have attended both on Kauai and other islands. However, the food and setting more than make up for the mediocre show. Also, we really loved the Imu ceremony and presentation by one of the Smith family members, nice touch.
We scheduled our luau on our last night. What an awesome end to a perfect vacation in paradise. We will never forget the beautiful gardens, the wonderful variety of food and the extremely talented entertainers. Mr. Smith has left his family a priceless legacy.
It was the best luau I've ever seen. They have a shuttle to pick you up from your hotel. (You will need to call them to organise this) You get to do a quick tour around on a tram or you can walk of what is growing there before the imu ceremony, dinner (yummy) and the best performances ever.
Great little tour, DELICIOUS food and amazing show! I highly recommend it! It was raining when we went and the show still went on. We enjoyed ourselves!

One of the best, if not the best Luaus we have ever been to. We took our daughter who has never been to Hawaii and was blown away. The grounds tour was beautiful and the food incredible great for serving that many people. You really know why the Smith's have been doing this for over 50 years.
It was a beautiful night! The grounds were immaculate. The entertainment was superb and the luau meal to die for. I don't have a bad thing to say about this experience. The best I have been to yet.
We had visited Kauai 3 years ago and went to another luau but since we were staying in Kapaa this time we chose Smith's Luau. Smith's was by far the best of the two luaus we have been to. The drinks were plenty, the food was fantastic (which they encouraged you to go for 2nds and 3rds) the staff were all friendly and nice and the entertainment was top notch. The only complaint was the seating for the entertainment was not pleasant to sit on and my husband and son both have back issues and it hurt their backs. Seating could be improved on.
The luau was great! It was well organized, the staff was great. The grounds were lovely. The food was marvelous. The entertainment was a delightful professional production. Well worth the money and the time. Definitely would recommend this.
nice atmosphere, well organized, good food, good cultural show but a little long.
The show was fantastic and the food was exquisite. The landscape was absolutely beautiful. I got a lot of fabulous pictures. I'd recommend this to everyone who visits the island,
I would advise anyone to take this luau trip as part of your vacation. Well planned, food was great, show was great,very pretty setting weather great I would rate as 5 star
This Luau was awesome. It was interesting to see how the pig was traditionally cooked and prepared. The food was great. There were a lot of people to feed, but the line went fast and there was plenty of food.The plants and flowers were beautiful. The show at the end was really interesting to see how the different cultures helped out on the island.
Only downside was number of people attending. Luau is held under a large open canope and I had thought it was to be on the beach per se...
This was our third Luau in Hawaii. By the description I was under the impression that it will be by the ocean. When we got there it was in the Gardens near the River ....The food was great, the singing while dinning was too low to hear, because of the open pavilion and everyone talking. Afterwards the show was fantastic, the setting very unique.
