Everything went well! Lots of things to do. Everything was well planned and flowed smoothly. Didn't like the lack of transportation from my hotel.
Beautiful grounds

Thomas_M, Apr 2024
Great experience. Totally brings the culture to an understanding and knowledgeable level of appreciation. Great food and activities. Best in Luau recommendation
Awesome experience! Didn’t disappoint!
Candace_C, Apr 2024
This luau was a wonderful experience! The entertainment was good. There was so much to do. The food was amazing! The kalua pig 🤤. They gave us a free small Mai tai upon entering which was so good that I had to buy another one. It was just as good but had more alcohol. They even gave us a card which had money on it which covered some of the price of the photo I purchased. I highly recommend this experience. Make sure you participate in the games, lei making, etc. Good food, good drinks, good vibes…worth your coins.
A must-see experience in Hawai’i !
Angela_O, Apr 2024
Paradise Cove Luau is an incredible experience that showcases the island culture and way of life through interpretative dance. Every bit of it immerses one to how rich Hawai’i culture is. Highly recommend it! Mahalo🤙🏼🏝️🤍

Michael_H, Apr 2024
If you are looking for the authentic Hawaiian experience.. this is absolutely amazing! Highly recommended.
nice experience
the climax of this tour is at the end of the it. where they perform dances and history of it.. other than that the rest is just ok.. food is ok.. love the salad.. desserts is ok... i paid the standard price of 150 and i think i made my money worth compare if i get the deluxe.
Luau experience
Xiomara_P, Apr 2024
I had a great time and enjoyed watching the dancers. It was raining so I’d recommend to bring and umbrella but other than that it’s was a wonderful experience
Paradise Cove Standard Experience
Robyn_F, Apr 2024
Once again, I have a problem with advertisement via third-party promotion. It wasn’t until I arrived at the luau before learning of the other packages; being Orchid and Deluxe. I was not given the option upon booking. These distinguished packages held favor. It allowed visitors a different adornment, they were served while others waited in the buffet line, reserved front row seating, etc. Had I known in advance and still purchased “standard” I wouldn’t have had an issue. Needless to say, the luau was a rewarding experience. Long and exhausting due to rain, but the performances made up for any discomfort and/or inconvenience.
Great show, food average.
Mary_M, Apr 2024
Great show experience, artists very talented, but I was not impressed with the food options, for the price asked the food had no flavor, except the vegetable options were okay.
Great Luau!
Martha_V, Apr 2024
I loved the singing, dancing and the fire that the men juggled. I'm so glad I was able to attend. It rained a bit but they provided ponchos for everyone which I thought was a really nice touch
Good Fun

Jeffrey_R, Apr 2024
The crew was great the cost a little high but enjoyable Wished it was in an area with clearer water and a better selection of fish
It was ok.
Jorge_S, Apr 2024
Our tour guide (Sia) she was great. Other than that everything else was average. The price that we paid I think it should of been much better.
The best show we have ever attended!!!
Hannah_S, Apr 2024
This is one of the best shows we have experienced, booking again would be a no brainer. From the service, experience, games and food. We absolutely loved our time here, seats and view was excellent. We will be booking again. THIS IS A MUST, if this is your first time traveling to Hawaii.
An adventure to remember
