What people are saying about Hawaii

The luau was very entertaining and the emcee was exceptional. Would recomend, but pricing should be different for anyone under 21 since alcohol was included. The food was very good! The parking was a little annoying with ticket validation and the machine not working when leaving, it should be complimentary for the price. The photo op was over priced, $20 for a 5 x 7, it should have been included as well for $113 a person.

Topaz is the sweetest, most kind and fun instructor I’ve had for any yoga activity! I had a hard time keeping up cause I’ve gotten out of shape due to health issues, but she made me feel so at-ease. 10/10 would participate again.

From the food to the bottomless Mai Tais to the elaborate performances, my husband and I really enjoyed this experience. It was the perfect start to our honeymoon!

They had plenty of food and drinks. The entertainment was spot on. It was a very beautiful experience.

It was a very entertaining show with the beautiful ocean in back of the stage. The food was good too!
