    A pricey, but fantastic way to spend a day. Educational, interactive and FUN. Many uplifting experiences that presented the culture of Polynesia.

    Highly recommend coming. The experience and show are something to see. Island buffet is nothing special but not terrible.

    Great food, entertainment, service, experience, everything. I highly recommend this for every visitor. A little bit expensive but so worth it to learn about the culture that influences so much here.

    This is truly a great place to see Polynesian culture. Go early to see all the amazing presentations. The canoe pageant is a must see for anyone going. Make sure you have time for gifts shops!

    If you have kids, it's more than a day because of the activities. So you will not be able to see all the shows unless you skip the activities.

    This is amazing. Spend a little more and get a tour guide. He or she will make sure you see all the good stuff.

    I really had fun and amazed with all the cultures there, the night show is somewhat boring, you can see these kind if dances in all around Hawaii, the best show in the center is at 2 p.m.

    The tour during the day was excellent Marcia did a great job keeping things lively the show is pretty good but after spending a whole day in the park I was to tired to sit through it.

    A fantastic day! I wish they opened earlier - we would have loved to spend more time here before the Luau and Night Show! I would recommend to anyone visiting Oahu!

    The luau was fun but the best part of this place, hands down, was the show.

    This place is probably more expensive than it should be. The buffet is mediocre, but the displays of Polynesian culture are informative. A great place to learn about something new.

    I honestly didn't know much about Polynesia. This place not only teaches but makes you want to know more. If you're into knowing about other cultures this is the place. Trip out has amazing views too

    Hokey Mormon theme park. The actors are Mormon students from all over, and I'm not convinced of the authenticity. The food was terrible and the worst kalua pork I've had on island. And no alcohol.
  • The Wall Street Journal
    A total immersion in pre-Colonial island culture. Take in Samoan fireknife dancing and feast at a luau upon such dishes as poi (taro root), poke (marinated raw fish) and kalua pua'a (pork butt). Read more

    Don't listen to the bad reviews. We had a great time for a couple of hours. Set your expectations, this place "enter-cational". Groupon made it even better at 50%

    Terrible! Read these reviews in advance. We thought it was an opp to learn about local culture. Buffet = inedible; place run by Mormons! You're giving $ to the people who ruined the original culture!!

    World class cultural entertainment and great food! Be sure to arrive at 2pm so you have enough time to know all the islands.Hã:The Breath of Life is a MUST (150 artists, 2h of incredible performances)

    This place is owned by the Mormon Church. There is no alcohol for sale on premise. Even at dinner. Totally dry.

    Wow, the reviews for this place is all wrong. Really great place to visit. The Laua food was good too and worth trying, desert needs work. But a must do!

    Save your money and skip the tour, the sub par food & the Vegas style show. The presentations are all near each other & scheduled every 1/2 hr. Spend the $100 you save on a nice dinner in Waikiki. 🌴

    Lots of upselling and HUGE crowds, but they handle the people smoothly and well. Fun but not the traditional luau I'd hoped for.

    Eh, I was kinda bored in the villages. So was my 3 year old. I think older kids have a better time though. The 230 dance/fashion show on the water was really cool though.

    If you want a luau buffet experience, pony up and have it here. It's solid.

    Breath of life was really cool, but could have been half as long. Intermission ice cream tastes like peach/bubblegum Luau food was great! Very interesting shows and look into each culture.
