This was a first time visit to any Hawaiin island and super excited. Everyone was very welcoming. This event was nice overall but the setting was poorly planned. This was an event that my family and I were looking forward to and it was disappointing. The performers were fantastic but they performed at ground level and it made it difficult for us to enjoy and get a good view. The food was good. The money paid was not worth it. I hope this gets better.


We absolutely loved the entire performance. We really appreciated the story telling and the ways in which the cultural history was embedded in the show and the way it was structured. The dancers were absolutely phenomenal, as was the MC (also her voice is magnificent). Absolutely worth the money for this experience. Also we sat in the back row and though we couldn’t see the full bodies of the dancers, we saw enough to enjoy and appreciate it.


Everything was good, food and dancing. Up close and personal. Small venvue and crowd at the golf course.


Amazing. just absolutely loved the food .. service and performance. Just loved everything about the event 😃 would do it again


Good food, excellent entertainment, good location. However, a 2-3’ high stage would benefit all attendees, especially small kids.


The show and dancing was amazing. We had the best time. Staff very professional and attentive of audience.


So the show was ok. 2 hours from beginning to end. Food was ok. Desserts were a disappointment as they were clearly Costco cakes! Like really 😒. Needs to specify that's in a golf course not by water. No real view!


Dancers and musicians were great but would have been better if on a stage so we could all see them vs at front area. Couldn’t see all of their outfits or dances


Great Hula dancers with many dance performances and a variety of costumes. But the performers need to be on a stage. Otherwise all you see is their heads from any of the back rows.


Overpriced- couldn’t see the dancers from our seats - weren’t allowed to stand- very disappointed. Our family couldn’t sit together even though we booked 6 weeks before. Would have been more enjoyable if the dancers were on a stage.
