"Magic of Polynesia at Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber Resort"
August 2016
It was a last-minute decision of ours to see this show, as we had a spare evening. What a great decision we made! It is an amazing show and John Hirokawa is an excellent illusionist, as well as putting together a wonderful show. As well as his act, there were Polynesian dancers and a stunning fire act It's suitable for families, has humour as well as great magic acts and various types of Polynesian dancing. Well worth seeing.

Tip: People can either book for dinner & the show or just for the show. We elected to forgo dinner + we had heard that dinner was nothing special.

"MAGIC and mesmering beauty"

To celebrate our wedding anniversary, we had chosen the Deluxe Dinner show, it’s the most expensive option, but you are seated just few steps away from all the action. To be honest, we found that the theater, at the Waikiki Beachcomber,was a bit run down and the “plastic” table cloth was in urgent need to be replaced…The “Deluxe” meal was nothing to write home about, BUT, apart from these flaws, ALL THE SHOW WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and thoroughly enjoyable!! We had watched Mr.Hirokawa’s incredible illusions and levitations some years ago,but I have to say that his show, today, is even more amazing!! How can a “full size” helicopter appear in front of your very eyes? Go see for yourself at Magic of Polynesia! We also loved the various dances from Hawaii,Tahiti, Samoa and other Islands, all nicely performed, with well designed choreography; a couple of performers were really talented, as I was told by my husband - who is very fond of Hawaiian dance steps, like Kaholo, Hela,’Ami and such. Among other beautiful performances, we were thrilled to see, during the exciting fire dance, a young boy mastering two fire twirlers!! All of the show, both MAGIC and POLYNESIAN, was high quality: everyone had their eyes glued to the Master Illusionist and the performers. Thank you to amazing Mr. Hirokawa and his talented staff!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

They have options to buy dinner or not; we did not buy it but did get the snack pack, which was actually plentiful. Two drinks cost $6 each; not too bad. The magic was fun to watch; we hadn't seen a magic show in quite a while. The dancers were also very good. Overall, we would recommend this entertainment.

I thought the magic was just average. However, the dancing was spectacular. I would have loved to see more of that.

I booked this through trip advisor. Luckily we got there early. We decided to get there early to get pur tickets before we went to have a drink next door at the bar. it. They seem to have problems connecting through trip adviser. They had to call them and then confirm our tickets. They had no Record even though it had a barcode on my phone. Luckily we didn’t get there on time and stand in line for this. Other than that, the show and dinner was awesome.
