Just touristy enough, just culturally respectful enough. No pig ceremony, but not particularly missed. MC Auntie Tutu was warm and funny and kept things moving, musicians are very talented, and the dancers are really excellent.
This was our first trip to Hawaii, needless to say we spent most our time sight-seeing. The locals were lovely and treated the tourist with courtesy and kindness.
Our hotel, Kona Seaside Hotel was beyond wonderful. The staff made us feel right at home and the entire place was immaculate. They were constantly cleaning and making sure everything was good. The hotel clients consisted of people from all over the world and we all agreed on how lovely everything was.
There was a 'chillaxing' open-air restaurant, Splasher's, on the hotel grounds that seemed to service mostly everyone in that area.This offered all types of food and the prices were very good.
Just across the street were 2 public beaches, unfortunately I can't swim that well so I didn't venture in beyond my knees.
What drew me to this island was the active volcano, I don't have the words to describe the wonder and magnificence of the area or the entire island for that matter.
This was an excellent Luau with activities for the whole family to participate in and enjoy. We got to try authentic Hawaiian foods and had lessons on Hawaiian activities. The hostess was fantastic with a warm demeanor! Family friendly entertainment and educational, fun setting! Unfortunately ours was moved inside because of the rain, but they still made it a wonderful experience!
Aunty Tutu was the best hostess we could have asked for made for a very homie atmosphere during the Luau
Not a single complaint the entire Luau was wonderful from beginning to end. Especially loved that the food was well catered to keep from running out and the service was fantastic. All the performers were wonderful as well. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Very entertaining, staff were very freindly , food was very good.
This is my first luau so no basis of comparison. Food was very good, great variety. Entertainment was very good also, narration by Auntie was very interesting. Would I do it again -- I would do another luau but probably try a different one, just for fun! If you go-you'll enjoy this one.
This luau would have been great except that it rained and the organizers did not seem at all prepared. They handed out towels to be used for cover and later found two tents for people to stand under. Eventually the rain stopped and there was a (good) performance but not the stated 3.5 hours.
It was a very short performance and was not value for money.....
