Nice for Everyone
, Apr 2020
Wonderful. The overall experience was what we were looking for to get a taste of the Hawaiian culture.
Paradise Cove-worth the money!
, Mar 2020
I thoroughly enjoyed the Paradise Cove Luau and thought it was worth the money compared to other activities on Oahu. The food was much better than I thought it would be based on some other reviews. The pulled pork was perfectly seasoned and the surprising combo of potato and macaroni salad was very tasty. The show was entertaining and the sunset at the Lagoon prior to the start of the show was beautiful. I paid the additional fee for the coach bus pick up in the Waikiki area and I was glad I did that. The bus seemed very new and it was a comfortable ride. I would definitely recommend the Paradise Cove Luau to others.
Great time/food
, Mar 2020
The food was fabulous and the entertainment spectacular! I highly recommend this was well worth it.
A must!
, Mar 2020
I believe this is a must do visiting hawaii from start to finish was brilliant . We opted for the orchid package which seemed to be the right choice as we had an acholic drink on arrival with a flower lei and a voucher with enough on there to get 2 more cocktails each. The food was better than expected a little bit school dinner set up with the way tables are set up and food is collected but that didn't affect the ambience and amostphere of paradise Cove show was awesome especially the fire dancers very entertaining and worth the money for the experience
Best Luau
, Mar 2020
This was my family's second time there. It was awesome both times. We will do it again. The Ohana (cousin's, family, etc) are amazingly friendly. Thank you for another beautiful and great experience.
Amazing Experience

What a wonderful experience!! Enjoyed everything from the moment Cousin Mo picked us up!! He’s a nut and had us laughing and engaged all the way to Paradise Cove. Once there, the food, entertainment and customer service was phenomenal!!!

Very touristy. Food just average. Whole thing went on too long. Not worth the money. We left part way through the show as kids were bored.

Overall very good experience. Hotel pickup was easy and in time. Emma was so helpful and kept us laughing through traffic. The beach setting and sunset were awesome. Show was very entertaining and interactive. The food was just OK. Lots of it though and hot. Staff very helpful. Would recommend.
Okay luau, far from impressive
, Feb 2020
Meh, we should have gone to Chief's Luau. Although the entertainment was okay, it felt cheesy and forced. We were gonna go to Chief's but they were close on the day we want to go so ended in Paradise Cove but judging from Chief's reviews on tripadvisor, it may have been a better bang for our buck.
