Entertainment and food were as expected at a modern Hawaii Luau. We have been to many of these and this one was as good as most.

One other thing. You pick your ticket up in the lobby by the coffee shop. They have a desk set up there. Grab your ticket and head straight to the gate. There are signs marking the way but it's to the right of the pool area.
