We decided not to pay for the special seating, but I would recommend to upgrade, if you can afford it.
Oh and get there early to avoid the check-in lines

We were not picked up so...
Inderpreet_K, Apr 2023
We were not picked up so had to drive down and paid (100). Veg food sucks. Rest shows and all were good. It’s little overrated.
Amazing experience, a must!
Angelina_P, Apr 2023
I went here with my sisters and mom and everyone loved it. The staff are amazing and you can just tell they love what they’re doing. Everyone was beyond friendly and our shuttle host was the absolutely best (shout out to cousin C). Truly unforgettable and couldn’t rate high enough.
Paradise Cove is a must visit when coming to Hawaii.
Philander_E, Apr 2023
Everything!!! My wife and I were in awe of the event. The customer service, the food, the shows, the views all were outstanding. We will be highly recommending Paradise Cove as a must visit. Mahola and Aloha And Tālofa to Cousin Junior
Bad start, Good ending
Patty_C, Apr 2023
We were given a 3:15 pick up time and reminders were sent to my phone all day. We arrived at 3:05 to the pick up site, the bus arrived at 4:00. Everyone on the bus with us had a 3:45 pick up. It took over an hour to get there due to rush hour traffic. Had the bus come earlier or been on time, would we have sat in traffic, I don’t know but it was not a great start. The rest of the evening was nice
Reunion with grand daughters
Hap_S, Apr 2023
Flame dancers Getting to spend time with grand daughters. Dancers were very good as well. Food was good but not as much variety as other Luaus we’ve gone to.
great shows
Charlene_T, Apr 2023
Sia was an excellent host on the bus. She made us laugh the whole time. Dua had a great sense of humor that make our trip to the destination even shorter with a blink of eye and we arrived.
My Experience
Javier_O, Apr 2023
Food was ok, had to sit in rain, seating is not organized. Too many people are allow at once without any guidance/signs.
Linda_K, Apr 2023
Certainly not worth the money. If you blinked, you missed the pre-show “events”, which many did while waiting on line for drinks. We were sitting on wet chairs in the rain, as there is no roof over the tables. (Security told us we couldn’t use our umbrellas.) The show was unexpectedly cut short and I never got to spend our gift card $ because the bus left early. Otherwise the brief show was good.
Luau was fantastic!
Rita_P, Apr 2023
The activities and entertainment before the dinner were great! The food was excellent with a variety of foods to choose from. The show was exceptional!
Worth it, well organized and so much fun!
Shameka_G, Apr 2023
Booking was smooth and I highly recommend adding on the transportation to and from the Luau. The bus guide was incredible and entertaining. The staff were attentive and professional. The dancers and musicians were immaculately talented! This experience was very organized and the attention to detail blew me away. I travelled with my 7 yr old and she was in awe and enjoyed all the activities and the Luau show itself. The food was delicious and the drinks were great too. I can't say enough great things about this experience! It was worth it!
Alicia_W, Apr 2023
Beautiful venue and we all enjoyed the show. From the moment we arrived it felt magical. The memories made will last a lifetime and glad I got to experience it with my family.

It's a good luau 👍
Howard_A, Mar 2023
We've been to a few luaus over the years and this one is the best bang for the buck. Aside from the price, they're all very similar. Buy the standard package, no reason for paying the big premium for the deluxe. Added convenience for those staying at one of the resorts in Ko Olina near Disney/Aulani - it's an easy walk. No need for the car or alternate transportation. As far as the 5+ hours listed, ignore. Enter at 5PM, exit by 8:30PM.
Jacqueline_Y, Mar 2023
Beautiful scenery, great employees, sooooo worth the money 💵! It’s a whole vibe there I suggest if you're visiting then stop on by.

Absolutely beautiful!!!
Brandy_H, Mar 2023
We asked our cab driver for his opinion of the best luau on the island and he suggested Paradise Cove, and believe me, it did not disappoint. This luau exceeded our expectations! The fun started with Mo, our tour guide. He kept us in stitches. The scenery was gorgeous. The activities, dancers and staff was superb. You can feel the love amongst everyone there. I left feeling like part of the family and I strive to take that love back to New Orleans with me. My new ohana!!!
Binh_L, Mar 2023
The show was very good . Food was great service was very very polite and friendly . Bathroom need to be clean.
Should have canceled the show
Karl_W, Mar 2023
Unfortunately it rained during the visit as well as at the last show which is what we came for. Very disappointed. The pork and chicken was great, desserts were a hard no for us. The icing on the chocolate cake was melting off. Alcoholic drinks were not very alcoholic. Did not need to drink more than 2 before we realized we were drinking juice.
So many fun interactive activities included.
Amanda_M, Mar 2023
Everyone made an effort to make sure you were enjoying yourself. The tour guide on the bus was super fun and made sure everyone was taken care of.
Crappy experience
kari_r, Mar 2023
Should have been cancelled- another luau was- so expensive to have a half experience. Also, no one did anything about 2 guys yelling /heckling the show and wreaking what was left of the night. I did approach security and it continued. People next to us left bcs of them. And! It ended early anyway
Great experience!
Dale_K, Mar 2023
Loau was awesome even though it rained. The hostess and host were awesome. Mo on the bus was a blast and made the bus ride fun. Haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Thank you Mo Great guy!!!
amber_b, Mar 2023
My partner and I had the most amazing time at paradise cove! Our bus guide and all staff are so lovely and you feel like one big family (ohana). Highlight for us would have to be the entertainment whilst being transported to the venue and back as well as learning all hawaiian traditions!! Not to be missed whilst in hawaii!!!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Glad you enjoyed our Luau! Mahalo for visiting!❤️🤙🏽
