"Beautiful performance!"
November 2018
Enter the yard with a shell lei and a smile that makes your evening. Watch the sunset and listen to the band. Eat local cuisine watching the moon rise among the palms. And then the dancers come out telling their histories and stories in dance. This was my experience at Voyagers of the Pacific luau......the stage backs onto an unbelievably beautiful ocean view. The food was excellent. Well organized. Worth a visit!

"Fun time luau"
June 2017
The food is ok. The cost is for the show. A dinner and a live show on the shores for Hawaii watching the sunset is going to cost you money. Nothing in Hawaii is cheap That being said the music was good, extra rum in the Mai tais is good, and it's a good and informative show. Get in line early. There is an option to buy a up front seat. It may be worth it for you. We didn't get it and we had a great view. If you make it as far as kona go to the show. How many will you ever get to see.

"Not worth the money"
April 2015
We went to this luau as our big outing for the day. We were all looking forward to it. It turned out to be so disorganized that we couldn't even enjoy ourselves. The seating was terrible so you could hardly see the stage. The food wasn't what it said on the website when we booked. There was an arts and crafts table where we could make bracelets. It was so disorganized that grown women kept cutting in front of my daughter while she waited patiently. I had to keep saying something to the girl running it. And she still skipped my child! Then the guy who was drawing on people's arms kept saying he was running out of time and couldn't finish. But he was still allowing a line to form and for people to wait instead of announcing it to everyone. The food wasn't good. The only good part was the fire dancer. This isn't worth the cash. Use your money at SeaQuest for a snorkel tour. That was worth every penny!!!

Tip: Don't spend your money on this! And don't expect any of the staff to be friendly!

My family and I were in Hawaii for the first time. We went to this luau and we had a nice experience. The dancers were amazing! The food was served buffet-style and it was pretty good. We lucked out with the sky staying clear for almost the entire event. It only started sprinkling at the very end of the show, so nothing was disrupted.

Hulu dance lesson was a hit with child and we enjoyed watching. Setting is fine, but it almost rained. Food was very mixed. Pork was dry for one, succulent for another in a different line. One adult couldn't eat anything but the green salad and kid food of mac and cheese because everything else was like bad cafeteria food. Entertainment was pleasant. Staff were very nice. No need to upgrade seats. We gave whole thing mixed ratings, two said 4, one of us said two. Checked luau off bucket list. Won't do it again.

A mediocre luau in Kona Hawaii. The food was ok and the seating adequate. The staff were friendly and helpful. However, the performance was not very good with the emcee spending excessive amounts of time calling out birthdays and anniversaries of various folks by name. One mention for each type would have been more than sufficient. A time filler for sure. There were a limited number of performers and a single fire dancer who stopped periodically appearing quite tired. Find another luau on the big island or wait until you get to Oahu where the choices are much wider. By the way, they start by insulting you requiring payment for parking in spite of the high price for the luau.

If this is your first trip to Hawaii you must do the Luau at the Royal Kona Resort. The buffet dinner before the show is delicious! Roasted pig, various seafood dishes, salads and of course delicious fruit and desserts. Then the show is Wonderful! The dancers are great and the lady that is the “MC” for the show is great and my husband and I learned so much about the history of a Luau. Plan to add this to your activities when you visit Kona!!

"Good show, mediocre food"

I was wary of attending a luau while visiting the Bug Island, expecting it to be an overpriced tourist trap. The show at Royal Kona Resort was more reasonably priced when I bought the tickets online (a few hours before the show). Well, the show WAS touristy but inescapably fun. We had a great time, to my pleasant surprise. The food was underwhelming, mass produced for a buffet line, but the setting was lovely, the other diners friendly and the performers eager to please. We’re glad we went.
