Well, the food is a regular buffet and bad quality. The show is nothing impressive, the best was the fire dancer. The trip with the guide (bus number 1) was funny and the best. Sorry but I don’t recommend this place
Awesome 👍👏👏

Cousin Mo
Daniel_W, Sep 2022
Our tour guide, Cousin "Sexy Mo" was by far the most magnificent tour guide ever! He was knowledgeable, so gregarious and funny and quite a gifted singer. We had the best Karaoke bus ride after the Luau. He was quite present at the luau and helped us a great deal. I had a wheelchair and he made sure I had an accessible seat for dinner. He is fantastic!
Fabulous Evening
Charlotte_G, Oct 2022
Paradise Cove was fantastic and Chief Umi was amazing. Great activities, beautiful location and all the entertainers and staff exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide "cousin sexy Mo, " on tour bus #1 (aka #11), set the stage for an entertaining evening from the moment we were picked up, until we returned.
Dream vacation😍
Robert_G, Oct 2022
We celebrated 10th year wedding Anniversary, 1st time to Hawaii and my wife's birthday! Awesome experience!
Great little getaway for the family or couples!
Erick_C, Oct 2022
Very fun trip! They picked us up from the Aston Hotel and drove us straight to the Paradise Cove Luau. They gave us complementary Hawaiian punch with or without alcohol, and a shell necklace. They also had spear throwing, Hawaiian bowling, hula lessons, pictures with parrots, and little gift shops for us to do our shopping! We got to see how they cook pig underground, along with a little hula dance for entertainment. We then had dinner, ate some pork, chicken, salad, macaroni, and Hawaiian sweet rolls! Finally we ended the night with a special Hawaiian musical and fire dance! 10/10 experience! Highly recommend to families and couples!
Beautiful, inclusive, fun, and informative.
Kwadwo_G, Sep 2022
My husband and I brought our parents to Hawaii and when I booked the reservation for the luau they asked for any special requests. I asked for an interpreter for my father who is deaf and they responded quickly that they would have one present. Later we got an email that they hadn't been able to find one but we still planned on coming. Once we got there, we were pleasantly surprised to find they did in fact find an interpreter for my father which filled us with much joy. All of us, including my father, were able to get the full, beautiful, detailed experience because of the effort and inclusion. At the end of the night, my dad gave me a big hug and thanked me for getting the interpreter so I wanted to make sure I extended that thanks to all of you at Paradise Cove. It was truly and amazing night.
Worth it
Bernice_P, Sep 2022
Starting w/our cousin Cia. She was amazing. Upon arrival, we were greeted w/a tasty drink. From there it got better & better. There were tattoo artist, birds, gift shops, canoes & Hawaiian bowling. The shows was nothing less than beautiful. The ride back was even a blast
Excellent Tourist Must See/Do
Shelagh_S, Oct 2022
The show with the fire dancers was absolutely amazing, the way the two Chiefs could control the fire throughout, safely and without endangering the audience was something to behold. The food setup was very good too, we opted for the Deluxe package which gave us table service by the wonderful ‘Auntie Ruth’, however the lesser packages had a eat all you can buffet, which seemed to go down very well. We learnt about the Hawaiian culture through some activities and via the wonderful show. And I have nothing but praise for ‘Sexy Cousin Mo’ from tour bus No 4 - he was amazing, we would have paid to have spent the evening having a bus ride with him entertaining us he was that good.
Unbelievable breath taking

The luau was in an amazing location. Right on the beach, we could see the gorgeous sunset. The staff were all friendly, kind and helpful. The guide on the bus ride back made the trip so much fun, I feel bad that I forget his name but he was the “sexy cousin”.
Nice evening!
