The dancers were very professional, costumes were bright, colorful and well made. Very good show, interesting and well done. If you are just a couple, you will be seated with another couple or group. Food was fine, roast pig was a bit dry but tasty. I would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed the luau. It was nice to have some entertainment during dinner. We had two little ones to entertain. The 8 month old was intensely watching everything and the 3 year old enjoyed the dancing. (both girls) Food was very good. The fire was our favorite part!!! Worth going to!!

The Island Breeze Luau was a great way to introduce our two Spainish friends to Hawaiian and Polynesian Culture. The dancers and musician enthusiastically convey their love of Hawaiian culture. The dancers manage to do a long and varied routine very well. The "Chief's" fire dance towards to the end of the show is memorable for his enthusiastic embrace of... More

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

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.

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.

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!
