The luau was the crown jewel of our Christmas in Hawaii. The experience, hospitality, food, and entertainment were all perfect. Even though we were a large group, we were treated very well. The food was delicious; every part of it was so tasteful. The entertainment was top notch. It is apparent the dancers rehearse in order to give us the best experience possible. Lastly, the venue was breathtaking. The views were 360 degrees of amazing beauty.

I have experienced better luaus. My previous time included a portrait with authentic dancers. The luau at Royal Kona Resort was a portrait of just family members oceanside. Food was good. I disliked the mai Tai drinks . I have had better! Performers were excellent!

This was our first luau and didn’t know what to expect. Overall interest experience. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was ordinary, and would expect a bit more for the price. The show and host were good, good music and performance but seating can be improved. Except for a few line tables in front (prob VIP that require additional expense), almost all other seats have blocking views by trees. I didn’t keep track of time but the overall performance was perhaps about 30 minutes, which was much shorter than expected. The following day I randomly ran into another cultural event (free) and had much better viewing of the hula dance and other traditional performance.
