I was on my honeymoon and we had a great time! the staff was first class, the food was great and the show was amazing. All family run on a very large property. I would recommend this for any age.

We really enjoyed attending this luau! Be aware that they host several hundred guests at a time, but it is very well organized. The food is good, buffet style. I wished I had taken more of the Kailua pork rather than a sampling of it,...More

This is the second time I have attended the show portion only and can tell you again that it did not disappoint! This is a fantastic activity to do at night while on Kauai. The price is excellent and they do a great show!

Much better luau in Lahaina. Beautiful grounds though. Food is fine. Host for dinner was awesome. Didn't care for the entertainment but many on our bus did like it. Bus picked us up at hotel which was nice.

I can't say what they used for the lanterns but I did not experience any fumes or smoke while there.

Its really an excellent show. I had been to other Luaus not put on by the Smith Family and the Smith Family one is far superior.

The actual dinner doesn’t start until 6:00 but you might miss the gardens and the other starting activities. It’s worth it though if you plane is on time. It does take time to get your rental car and drive there also.
