    I have been twice to this luau. Consistent show each time. The food is good and the buffet line is well organized. Love that it is located outside and with an ocean view. Definitely worth seeing.

    The Luau was very fun - the entertainment was the best part of the show. The food was good, but not great. Overall, we were glad we went. Not sure I would go to another one in the future.

    We were celebrating our anniversary with our whole family and wanted to have them experience a wonderful luau. What we received was very rude customer service from the front desk all the way until we were seated. The lines were very unorganized and this was just to get into the venue. The food was sitting out before we were even seated. When we finally went through the food line, most of the food was out and you couldnt even get water refills. The performances were average at best.

    The Island Breeze Luau was such a great adventure. The luau began with a shell lei and a stroll to the luau area by the ocean. The luau staff held hula dance classes along with crafts before the show began. The staff then invites everyone around the underground pit to open the roasted pig. Dinner is then blessed in Hawaiian culture and dinner begins with a large buffet to satisfy any palette. The show begins shortly after dinner is served. The show presents the many cultures of pacific islands including Tahiti, New Zealand, Hawaii and many more. This is a great show for families.

    Great food and entertainment. A well oiled machine. One girl at the line for the hotel check in was apathetic and rude - understandable she is asked the same things over and over, but like so many of the younger female workers on this island they have a horrible customer service attitudes. Her male coworkers and others working the Luau made up for her poor attitude.

    We enjoyed our luau experience. We tried to hula with the lessons. We loved the pageantry -especially the entrance on the water. The atmosphere was awesome. There was plenty of food and drinks available. Great selection and variety on the menu. You should definitely go to the luau on your vacation. It was fun for all ages!!

    The food isn't great, but it isn't bad. I've never been to a luau before, but it was about as good as what I'd expect from a mediocre Vegas buffet. The dancers and MC were amazing -- really made the night. The bar was open, but there was only one bartender and the drinks were bottom shelf. Bud and budlight for beer, the cheapest liquor you could find, and disgusting wine. It met my expectations, but I wouldn't go back. Definitely something you should do at least once in your life, though.

    Show was great. Food was good. Drinks at open Bar was very good. Bar closes before show ends, they neglect to inform you before they close.

    weather related: bad parking at extra cost then looking to fined where the line-up was no signs , after waiting in line and being sent out side in the rain and given a rain poncho only then told to go back in hotel ot another room that had no signs or people to say where to go .then had to wait about another hour to set up the room only to have the stage so low you couldn't see any of the floor dance work .truely felt like a school production vs something I paid 133.00 for . at the end 1 guy did a fire dance on the front grass of the hotel so everyone in the hotel and street got to watch in the pouring rain dropping things as it was really wet was cold as it took the extra time to reset up lots of confusson on the part of staff setting up ... if I was to do it over would have booked when I got there so I could see what the weather was like first
