Pleasant Evening
Natalie_N, Aug 2022
The venue was lovely, dinner was nice and the show was great. Unfortunately for us there was an accident in the freeway hence major traffic hold ups so our bus arrived much later than planned and missed out on most of the pre show activities. Beyond the control of Paradise Cove - but disappointing
Poor Luau
Andrew_F, Aug 2022
This Luau is definately not worth 700 dollars for 3 adults , 3 youths !! Food was average , queues for bar were way too long, seats were right at the side with poor viewing, then at 8.30 the bar closed and cudnt get another drink .Very poor
Great Experience
Jose_O, Aug 2022
The location is great and the sunset even better. There is A LOT of food and a great show. Totally recommend.
It wasn’t great but it wasn’t horrible
Brooke_G, Aug 2022
We were excited initially, but soon realized how overwhelmingly crowded it was. Hundreds and hundreds of people! The food wasn’t good at all, because I know that it must be very hard preparing food for that many people. The show was OK. Loved the fire performer and the other dancers were very good. I’m sorry but we were disappointed, but glad we finally saw a luau.
raquelzamora, Aug 2022
Wonderful time. Hala and David are amazing. Hala kept us entertained the way to the Luau and back. Hala is so funny. Luaua was good. Taking pictures with the birds was great. Make sure to walk around as soon as you get there. They have many things to see and do. Show was great.
We had an amazing time...
Deyci_M, Aug 2022

Great Luau and entertainment
Serge_A, Aug 2022
Great food and dances especially the fire dance. This was definitely a show stopper in my opinion. The performer was so good. Too bad we could not see the dances that well from our tables located at the end of the row. This is my only negative comment.
Anniversary Luau
Cheryl_J, Aug 2022
We selected the deluxe package for our anniversary celebration. We were seated right up front by the stage. The food was delicious and the show was amazing. We absolutely loved every aspect of the Luau. The fire dance was our favorite. I would recommend this experience to anyone who wants to see the Hawaiian culture and have fun.

Excellent Entertainment
Aldo_L, Aug 2022
Excellent Entertainment. Views and photo opportunities are incredible. Would recommend it if you re visiting Ko'Olina.
It came to this Luau 15...
Luz_H, Aug 2022
It came to this Luau 15 years ago it was better then. The food was good. The music put us to sleep left early.
Not worth it
Mailene_M, Aug 2022
I truly expected more for the price- food was not true island food and that was the most important thing to us. Entertainment was sub par not fantastic the best part of the entire evening was kayaking and fire show.
Family fun
Justin_R, Aug 2022
My family and I had a great time start to finish. Our host “Holla” lol was the best she was so funny and made it worth the trip. We enjoy every moment of it. Only thing that I wish was the drink cards we were able to get 2 free drinks. Instead of 1/2 drinks. Meaning the 2nd time we would use the remaining balance on our cards and pay the difference was kinda wired. The food was amazing I wish I could of got 2nds but didn’t want to miss the show. Also wish we had more time to try the other fun experience. Throwing the Spears, arts and crafts. And there was more. Overall great time. Thank you so much!!
Amazing and Unforgettable Experience
Philip_I, Aug 2022
Everything was great: from the ride to and from Paradise Cove, the beautiful setting at the cove made enchanting by the sunset, games, etc. Aloha was definitely in the air. Cousin Flo was awesome, entertaining, and simply amazing! Needless to say, she took very good of all her cousins on Bus 1. 🥰🥰🥰 I can't say enough good things about her. Chief Umi was unbelievable! I hope he and Cousin Flo do end up with each other! 🤗 The Moonlight Silhouette dance was exquisite and ethereal! This was an extraordinary and unforgettable experience. Thanks Paradise Cove!
Flaming Hot!
Josh, Aug 2022
This was our first Luau to attend and we had an amazing experience. Nui, our tour guide and our driver were fantastic. They were highly entertaining. We had a small minor issue when it came to getting seated at our table, Nui was able to get us situated. The food was delicious and the show was very entertaining, our favorite part was the fire show.
Helpful and friendly
MaryDee_W, Aug 2022
The driver and the guide. Great job and patient with lots of people. Telling everybody what they need to do and where they need to be takes a lot of work but our guide made it seem easy.
Good place, amazing show, and normal food
WalterJiang_W, Aug 2022
We went as a family of 4. Firstly be careful of the traffic. During the rush hour, it will take 1 hour and 10 min to drive from Waikiki where we live. We were late for 30 min, but no worries, lots of other folks are the same. Before 6:30, it is basically social time, you can take photos, making flower rings, Hawaii sports etc. 6:30 to 7 is the buffet time. They have the usual stuff. The variety is not a lot, so I gave 4 rating there. Then the show starts, and we just love it. It is my daughter’s graduation and our wedding anniversary. The whole family had a really good time. We did a dancing as well. The show ends at 8:30. The back traffic is fast. Overall, luau is something you have to see at lease once on the island. We like this place.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Ho'omaika'i to your ohana!❤️ Mahalo for visiting us!🤙🏽
Amazing night and entertainment!
Nicole_P, Aug 2022
Paradise Cove was everything we hoped for in a Luau! The property is beautiful and had awesome sunset views. The staff was pleasant, and entertainers were very talented. One of the male dancers was so animated, energetic, and looked like he’s related to “The Rock” aka Dwayne Johnson. The food was good, with lots of choices. My 3 teens all found something they liked, including my picky eater who loved the fish. There were 900 people but everything went smoothly including directing us to various activities, getting food, and I could always get a drink quickly (they were also very good with lots of fun options). We made orchid bracelets at a station, the kids tried Spear throwing, we got professional pictures taken which turned out amazing, and we wandered around taking in the beauty. My 13 year old son was in awe of the fire show and all of my teenager kids were clapping and cheering throughout. Thank you Paradise Cove staff and entertainers for a great evening!
