Best Luau in Honolulu
Daniela_K
, Jun 2021
A Luau like no other. My husband and I had the Deluxe Luau and so much was included with that. I accidentally didn't choose the hotel transfer (even though I thought I did) when I booked this and we had to Uber to the event. Not cool! Totally my fault though! Please make sure you choose the transfer because it is an hour's drive from Waikiki. We were able to secure seats for the return on the coach bus, thankfully. The Luau was educational, fun, entertaining, and the food was good. My husband and I enjoyed the entire evening, especially the sunset. The dancers and presenters were spectacular!! Great value for the money. The bus guide on our way back was hilarious and entertaining. He made the 45-minute drive so worthwhile. I highly recommend Paradise Cove Luau.

The sunset photos and the dance program were terrific snd very welcoming atmosphere. Plenty of time to walk around and look at the marketplace. Food was sub par but that could be due to co if restrictions which did not allow us to serve ourselves.

Dont Go, rude staff awful food NO ALOHA
Christina_A
, Jun 2021
Do NOT bother, the staff had No Aloha they are rude!!! The food was awful and served as if you were in Prison with the staff slamming the plates down in front of you Prison style as you pass through the cafeteria style buffet. I understand limitations due to Covid but this was ridiculously poorly done and my worst part of Vacation. They barely gave you any food. No traditional Luau food except the Pork ( No Poi, No Poke, and exactly one teaspoon of Lomi Lomi Salmon served in a condiment cup ) The performance was like a Vegas review. My husband, myself and our friend were followed in the gift store by several of the security people and treated like common crooks!!! AWFUL DO NOT GO TOTAL tourist TRAP and we were not the only guests that felt this way as many arrived on bus Trip's and were stuck from 5-9 pm miserable. We were so offended by the way we were being treated that we left and didn't even finish the show!
