We went to a luau earlier this week---we had been to one in Honolulu (at the Hilton Hawaiian Village) and were looking forward to this one too (at the Hilton Waikoloa Village). They were very different--the Honolulu one was huge and very 'theatrical' with a cast of 12 or so and many many costume changes--the theme was the history of Polynesia. This one was much smaller and more intimate, and focused on legends of the Big Island. The cast was smaller but very talented.
Tim and I both agreed that the food at this one was much better than the other and the drinks were nonstop and free! We sat next to a young Japanese couple with a one year old baby who was thrilled to spend some of the show sitting with me!
