The cultural center itself was very interesting in that there were 6 separate areas of the park for each of the Polynesian cultures. Each had its own demonstration. I really loved the Samoan and Tongan presentations. The presenters really loved what they were doing and...More

We loved the activities in the Villages and the parade. The dinner show was corny but fun. The food was ok.

These places are always a little contrived but this centre tries really hard to educate whilst being entertaining. My first suggestion is that you should get there on time if you want to take advantage of both the shows and activities on offer. The best...More

We bought tickets to attend the evening show (Hā: Breath of Life). Our first disappointment was with the amenities where the show is held: it looks like a sports field (and the host acts as he is talking to a sports arena crowd). In addition,...More

What is the best way to visit the PCC with a 3 year old and a baby? Is the luau kid friendly or will everyone be annoyed? How late does everything go? Anyone visited with young kids? Was it too much walking/too tiring for them? Are there places to nurse a baby? Thanks!

There was a good salad bar with various roasted vegetables, decent salad selections and generous fruits - also if you get there early enough you can get poi. There are nice taro rolls as well.
