“Luau on the 6th floor of the parking garage ”

Waikiki Starlight Luau
Ranked #19 of 34 Concerts & Shows in Honolulu
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

I am expected so much more from Hilton. Food was just okay. Dancers were good. Really no service. If you wanted a drink you had to go get it yourself. Sodas 5 dollars. I have seen 3 other luaus in my life and this was the worst. The cost was over 100 per person. Fire dancers did the best performance

We went to this experience this week after receiving a discount at the Hilton Vacation Properties presentation. Greg was accommodating and changed our night when the outdoor event was rained out. For the price, we were very happy with the food and especially the entertainment. Sia (the hostess) had a lovely personality and made sure to recognise some audience members who were celebrating special events. The food was as good as could be expected at a buffet, the maitais served at the beginning of the night were on the weak side.

The event takes place on the top of the Hilton Hawaiian Village conference center. The food is ok. The performers however are very very good and their show is excellent.

Can you say "herding cattle"? That's what this experience is all about. We arrived vouchers in hand at the Luau location at 5:15 pm. It took 20 minutes to arrive at the front of the line to hand in our tickets. It then took another 10 minutes in line to go through the photo experience, we passed the tables of souvenirs for sale; and then a guide told us where to sit. We were offered drinks, juice or a Mai Tai. By then it was 5:45 pm and there was some Emcee giving everyone lessons for dancing at the Luau. Then we were directed to tables for dinner - it was 6:00 pm - one hour later the enormous crowd had finished dinner and the luau entertainment began at 7:00 pm. The entertainment occurred from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The highlight of that were the dancers with the fire torches. Children love it - although I noticed many sleeping. I think it is difficult to make the evening even remotely "intimate" given the huge number of people that are seated on the rooftop. Given the prices charged, this event must be an enormous money maker for The Hilton.

I have been to many Luaus and this is hands down the most beautiful. They deliver year after year. Well worth seeing. I've seen it probably 30 times and it never gets old. Take your camera and get a good seat.
