Excellent show! Loved it! The food was a bit to be desired, but the chicken was great! I loved the vendors in the beginning, however, wished they had stayed before the big show. Wanted to purchase more. Grounds are beautiful. Wait staff great! Tour bus transportation very nice, COLD air. Bring a sweater. I would recommend this to all!

The Luau Kalamaku was delightful! We enjoyed the atmosphere, music, show, and delicious Hawaiian cuisine. Women received Leis and men received shell necklaces. Photos were taken with the option to buy them which we did. The staff was friendly and the buffet line was organized and we went through quickly. We took the train tour of the grounds and saw animals, trees, plants and vegetation. Not sure we'd do the train tour again, but it was pleasant. The show was exciting with professional dancers. We could hear everything well. I recommend this Luau!

The train ride and performance were lots of fun. Train ride was the highlight.
The food and drinks on the other hand left much to be desired.

We really enjoyed the Luau at Kalamaku. They whole process is very smooth. When you first arrive you take pictures that you can purchase later for 25. No pressure is given. Then you can enjoy cocktails while you shop at various arts and craft vendors lining the beautiful grounds or you can sit and relax at your table. The show is a beautiful production that is well executed. We were so impressed by the dancers and the love they obviously have for their craft. Their smiles never left their faces!!! The food was ok, nothing we would rave about but the pork was good. Overall, an excellent Hawaiian experience not to be missed.

We did the Luau and train ride. We had a great time. The train ride was fun and the entertainment at the Luau exceeded our expectations. We loved that it was a story. Unfortunately, the food let it down. There were 4 of us--2 picky eaters and 2 with adventurous palates. None of us liked the food. We appreciated the traditional food offered, but for those of us who did not enjoy it, a few options of simple foods would have been appreciated.

Buffet dinner was great. Plenty of food with a lot of variety. The show was fantastic. The dancers were great and told a wonderful story. The singers were amazing, very talented. Whole staff was very friendly and helpful. Only issue we had was with the transportation. We had to walk to another hotel at least 4 blocks away because we were told we could not park there and must walk. Coming back was dark and raining. Not a pleasant end to a wonderful evening.

Luau Kalamaku was the BEST luau I've ever attended. Free drinks, great pork and fixings, and the story in dance of Polynesians arriving in Hawaii. The costumes, the orchestra, the dancing were all outstanding! It was sooo much more than just a hula. Also, the bus ride from north Kauai to the south was only 14 extra! Really a great bargain!!

I've been to luaus before, but this luau was great. Food was delicious and entertaining was very good. My one complaint would be that the story line was a little too long. People were getting anxious sitting there. I would suggest shortening it a bit.
