"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!

"Beautiful dancing, great story, and the fire dancing"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 11, 2020
My wife and I saw a Luau on each island we visited. This Luau certainly had all the elements, an engaging MC, beautiful dancing, a story, and the highlight of every show: the fire dancing. If this was the only show I saw it would have been 5 stars. However, we saw the Royal Lahaina show in Maui, and that Luau was something else. One thing this Luau does have is an amazing background of the sea. But once the show starts, it's the performers on the stage that matter most.

Forest, the manager, should have moved it inside. Had everyone sitting in the pouring down rain. He never should have put Steve in charge as he kept directing people to the wrong tables. The performers had to be out in the pouring rain causing them to fall flat on their face due to the slick conditions of the stage.

"Fun, but pay for VIP "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed March 22, 2020
The staff did a great job making this a fun experience for all and the food was delicious! I wish we had upgraded to the VIP package as we ended up at a table in the way back and once the performance started many people stood up to take photos and were completely blocking our view. The wait to get in was a bit long as well. It would be nice if they had a cash bar open for beverages after the open bar closes at 7pm, as there was still another hour to hour and a half left of the performance. All in all a fun night learning about Hawaiian culture

"Average Luau"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed March 10, 2020
We started off by booking the luau through Martha at Diamond resorts (had to do hotel tour) for a discount. They told us we would not have to be in the line with 300 people but the line with 27 people and we would be able to choose our own table. When we got there every single table was reserved and they had reserved a table for us in the very last row. They were very dishonest and I would give them zero stars. I gave the luau three stars. The individual dancers were good but the production was 1/3rd of the King Kamehameha luau. We were one of the last tables to go through the buffet. The food was average. If you are going for the show I would recommend King Kamehameha luau.

"Watched the show"

Reviewed February 24, 2020
We watched the show from our balcony. It did not seem like it would be worth paying $100+ dollars per person for. It takes place right in front of the ocean, it’s in a great location just not worth the price tag.
