The Cultural Centre was really nice. The atmosphere is for tourists, but its great. You are catered to, looked after, the setting is great and the food is very good. We thought the whole thing was to make sure you as the tourist enjoys yourself and its true. You will.

Yes, it's expensive, yes it's commercialized but it's AWESOME! I wanted to go to this for forever! And I'm so glad I did. I will cherish the memories forever! Eat the purple rolls they are amazing! And buy the $10 drink in the pineapple, it's fabulous! And the show during the luau is terrific!

Great place to visit, but go there early to maximize the activities in this area. Instead of the luau, we opted for the prime rib buffet area (Ambassador Package). Nothing wrong with the luau, except at that time we wanted to have a more intimate dinner instead of the "noisy" and crowded luau setting. Plus we wanted the prime rib... More

We visited the Alii Luau at the PCC two years in a row during spring break. We LOVED it both years. Delicious buffet. Very entertaining and professional show. Festive decorations. Friendly staff. Good options for pescatarians (fish) and vegetarians and meat eaters. We bought the Super Ambassador Luau Package both years. SO worth it. They seat you at the very... More

We got this as part of our Go Oahu card. Organization of this event was first class. Food was superb. Endless amounts of Poke and Pork. Hula and other live entertainment all through dinner. I ate way too much! Would do it again

This. Place is great it combines different experiences of 6 Polynesian islands. Also a laua dinner and breath of life show. Plenty of Hawaiian music and dancers, river show and lots of interactive activities for all ages. It's an all day experience and will be very happy and tired when you leave.

Great show! Good food! See previous post on the PCC. Everyone was fed really quickly, but didn't really get to truly enjoy it- as they kept the awesome shows going throughout dinner. Who wants to eat when there are beautiful- talented individuals giving you an awesome display of the different cultures! Definitely don't miss this Luau!
