Caught this show 4 years ago and had it on my must see list for this trip. Unfortunately, they have gone the way of all the other Luau shows. It has now become a glitzy, plastic, Vegas review. The historically original costumes have been replaced...More

We made a point to attend this free show because I had read such good reviews. We thought it started at 5:30, but it's only a 30 minute show that didn't start until 6. There are activities at 5:30, but they weren't prepared for the...More

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.
