  • Great family experience. We came as a couple for the first time here. Would highly recommend getting there as soon as they open to spend more time going through each of the islands. We got there later and wished we could have spent more time. The ticket was good for three days, so that could be something if you don’t get it all in. The tour to the temple was great and the food was pretty awesome. The show was the highlight and really well done with very seasoned actors and cast that have some great heritage.
  • Great place to emerge into the Polynesian cultures and learn about each island culture and language. Definitely a fun and family friendly place to be at. A big plus is that they let you come back for 3 additional days for free so you can see and do other activities. I recommend you pay for the fire dance Hā (Breath of Life) and the Luau for the full experience. Friendly reminder to be there when they open at 1230 so you can spend more time/see more things at the center.
  • Definitely recommend a few days here so you are able to tour each island with a guide and then explore on your own. The guides are wonderful. They call you family and I truly felt like they were part of mine throughout our day. Unfortunately I can't remember our guides name, but we loved and appreciated every second with her. The Luau, dinner and program was a good time and a must when you go. Overall an amazing experience and would love to go again
  • It was a very nice day. It was my birthday and all the stuff made me feel good. All the activities are awesome. The energy and stamina of everyone is incredible. I took hula lesson, tattoos, games, best buffet and a perfect closure. The final show is amazing! So cool!
  • Really enjoyed our time here!! The cultural presentations were very entertaining and informative. Luau was a blast. The hostess really made it a great experience. And the evening show Ha Breath of Life was amazing. I would definitely recommend this place and suggest getting the upgrades for the luau and evening show!
