The truth

Food was good, too much mayo on the macaroni salad. The mix drinks are terrible. Thought there could've been more show. Only place in the entire island I found Hawaiian people to be pleasant.

Great family luau. Lots to do once you are at the cove. Bus ride is about an hour. Bring cash. Food was good and they were really generous. The show it’s self was just ok. More like Vegas dancers than feeling like authentic Hawaiian dancers. I feel it was the. Costumes more than the dancing.

This was an average event. It seemed like there were not enough events as there was before such as the tree climbing and the water show. The area that we were seated I can only compare to “back of the bus” we ate last and could hardly see the stage.
