Entertaining evening

Food was super. Nice mix of traditional Hawaiian and western dishes. Entertainment was good but would have really liked a bit of explanation on history and more on tradition.

I didn't like the way we were thrust into a photo shoot but it turned out okay (actually, I should have expected it). The host could have explained that we were to enter this room, take picture, get parking ticket validated if needed, and then pay for the picture. As we left the photo session, we wandered around, not knowing... More

We attended this show on a beautiful evening. The activities were fun and the show was very good. You need to be there early if you don't want long lines for the drinks. The food was pretty good and the teriyaki beef was fantastic! Overall, my wife and I had a great time an I would recommend to others--especially if... More

We have been to luaus all over the islands and this is one of the best. I liked the intimacy of it. Other luaus were on a much larger scale. Loved that you could talk to the performers and take pictures with them after the show. Choose the preferred seating option so we had a great view of the show.... More

There are a variety of Luau's in the area, but from my experience and the comments and advise of the locals, this is one of the best Luau's. This was a beautiful experience and a must if you are in Hawaii. The stories they tell are beautiful!

The Island Breeze Luau is the best show on the Big Island. You can go for a lot of adventure around Hawai'i, but good food and a musical full of history you can only have with them.

This was our first luau and we absolutely loved it! The performance was so well done. We were with friends who had been to a luau before and they felt that this one was far more professional that their previous experience. The band was very impressive! Beautiful harmonies, talented musicians. The food was very good. It was fun to try... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids, aged 10-1) loved this event! We had a great time learning about Hawaiian traditions and culture, and seeing all the beautiful dances and costumes from the different islands. The staff were great, and they really took a lot of care to make it fun for each person. We got to chat... More

This was my first luau and it was great! The food was very good, and the show was awesome! I liked how they honored all of the Polynesian Islands. The dances were fun and entertaining. The fire show was a lot of fun! So much talent! We had a wonderful time and would recommend this luau to all!
