"Great experience"
November 2022
The luau is a great experience. I grew up in Hawaii and have been to Germaine’s Luau a number of times and always enjoyed it. I took my wife to Hawaii when I went back for my high school reunion and took her to the luau and she loved it. The food is very good and authentic Hawaiian food. The entertainment is great and very professionally done. Staff is very friendly. Lots of Aloha shown here.

Each tourist should attend a luau once. The food is nothing special though. The fire dancer was the best part of the entertainment.

Tip: Purchase the travel to the luau. You have to go through an industrial park to get to the luau, so you may not think you are heading in the right direction.
