I always wanted to experience Luau but I was not sure if I like the food overall. So we (family of adults) flew to the island for a long weekend trip and this is our first activity. I researched and selected the best of the best and picked the Paradise Cove & Orchid package for the seating and type of lei reason. First of all, the location by the beach is spectacular. The entertainment is superb! Dancing, specially the fire show & singing was beautiful. Amazing talented entertainers. The food was delicious- Kalua pig, island style baked chicken, beer battered island fish and many more. Highly recommended, must do in Oahu.

They should update their website to show what is no longer included due to COVID measures. For example, most of the activities listed in the website and brochure are no longer available, specifically kids' activities like face painting. Despite the fact that during our visit last night there was virtually no mask wearing and close contact with many of the staff members. Hence my surprise that things like face painting where not allowed. As a father I chose this luau for that reason. In addition, for the roughly 3-400 guests there were only 3 bartenders, so everyone stood in line for about a half an hour. Food consisted of one small piece of chicken a small pile of shredded pork, lots of salad. Miss part of the show waiting for drinks. Because there were very little in the way of presentations or activities, you will quickly run out of things to do, and sit around instead. Things we liked. Pictures with parrots. The sunset, lots of photo opportunities. The fire dancer during the main event. But frankly, none of it was worth the steep price. Previously, many years ago, we did Germaines Luau, and had a blast. COVID aside, they could and should include the activities listed or simply inform us they are not included in advance so we can make the choice to go.

Pick up and delivery were excellent. Moe was a joy and if anyone could recommend a guide, choose him. Hilarious, fun and upbeat. He made the drive to and from luau fun. Gave specific instructions and everyone knew what to expect. Due to Covid everyone was checked for vaccine card and temperature was checked.
Food along with show were average. Wasn’t great. Wasn’t bad. If it’s your first luau, you will gain a Hawaiian experience
There are several items for purchase, canoe ride, pictures etc. pictures were on the high side and wish they had an USB option as I didn’t want the additional photos in package. I think people would tend to buy USB if offered Just wanted the photos not the package. Old school.

The bus attendant makes all of the difference, cousin Riki, Holla, and Niue (sorry if the names were wrong) were amazing! I was so happy to be apart of bus 1. The show itself was wonderful, and the they did great with the dinner even with COVID precautions. Highly recommend, and am happy to have done it !

This was such a fun experience with beautiful views all around!! The staff was friendly, the music was entertaining and the food was delicious. A friend recommended this Luau to me and I would definitely recommend it to others. We were also given a credit to get drinks or gifts and I got a very unique reusable bag that I used daily on my trip and will continue to use in my home state.

This show was exactly what I expected it to be. I didn't book it with delusions of grandeur. I didn't book this luau for amazing food and a Vegas level show. I booked this to experience a luau while in Hawaii. I knew the food was going to be OK, I knew it was going to be long, and it was going to be a little touristy and kitschy, but did I have fun and enjoy myself? ABSOLUTELY!

Yes, I could have booked a different luau, but it likely would have been a similar experience. I chose this one because my family came to this one 30 years ago when they visited Hawaii, they enjoyed it, and I went for nostalgia purposes. And if something has been around for that long, they must be doing something right.

All of the staff, servers, performers, and everyone involved were super kind and friendly. We're in COVID times and everyone was working as fast as they could to put on a show, serve food, entertain guests, and serve drinks.

Yes, the food is pre-plated for you and you go to the buffet to grab your plate, but we're in a pandemic and I was happy with this option. We were provided ample portions of everything and I couldn't finish my plates. If there's something you're unable to eat due to an allergy or diet restriction, they'll happily grab you a different plate and replace it with something extra.

As for the activities, I enjoyed being able to throw a spear, grab some pictures of the beautiful scenery, and learn to hula.

The drink line was long at times, but if you watch the crowd and go when most people are seated, then there's really not a line and you get your drinks quickly.

This luau isn't as horrendous as other reviews make it sound, but if you're going to go, have realistic expectations.

We had the orchid level seats. That's the middle. The good thing is you can eat earlier than everyone and you have a straight on view of the stage. The dinner is basically plated with hot food and another plate for cold foods. You go up and get a plate of each. I'd go to the bar when everyone is getting food otherwise you'll be waiting a long time! You can also get seconds.
