This was a surprisingly great (and free!) hula show. This dancing/music show was as good as the show part of a dinner luau we went to at a nearby hotel. This is just the show, about 40 minutes, no dinner, and it's on twice/week -...More

Great show, they could charge money for this. It’s even better than many of the professional shows! The young girls and boys are so passionate. We definitely recommend this show to more friends.

Great show and great value as others have said. We have gone at least once on each of our visits. After the show they do lessons for those who want to learn. Very well done and great to combine with dinner.

这个表演真的太出乎我意料了,知道评价不错,但看完以后只有震撼与感动能形容。虽然是免费的,但是绝对不比luau的表演逊色,节目安排非常紧凑,循序渐进高潮迭起。提前20分钟去占位吧。表演者都非常投入,充满激情,看得出他们对于传统文化的爱与自豪。结束还有很多互动环节。周一和周四的节目还不同。Must See.
