I got the VIP pass! I was greeted by Alexis with a beautiful lei. She took us back to the green room for pictures, champagne and cheese/fruit/crackers. Included was 1 photo in a booklet which tuned out very nice. Alexis took us through the backstage and was very informative. After the tour Alexis escorted us to our reserved table which was in a very good location. The dancers were very entertaining during the meal. We were also served 1st. My welcome drink did not have any alcohol that I could tell in it. The food was actually just OK the pork was way to fatty for my taste. After dinner Alexis escorted the VIPs to the Rock a Hula show with center front seat. The variety show was very entertaining and fun. Completely enjoyed this time and I felt the money was well worth it to be a VIP. Thank you, Alexis, for everything. This was very short walk from the Moana Surfrider resort.

The dinner was great; there were lots of options to choose from. The free drink was tasty too. The show was a lot of fun and gave a great variety of music.

Excellent Show! great performances from Elvis and Michael Jackson but the Hawaiian dancers and fire eating performer were the best. Had the privilege of doing the backstage tour...helps you understand how skilled the performers are with their quick costume changes and what goes into producing a show. Buffet meal was average.

The food was amazing and the show was great. It was within walking distance of where we stayed which was a plus. Our whole family, including teenagers enjoyed the show. I highly recommend doing the combo with buffet and show.

What an amazing experience. We got the mid range package so we got a real flower lei (plus a flower to tuck behind your ear), two alcohol drinks and preferred seating. The buffet was served on a rooftop on a building in downtown Waikiki. The buffet was good but what really made the experience memorable was the hula dancing. A few times during dinner, men and women hula dancers came out to dance between the tables. There was also a woman who wandered around singing and playing the ukulele.

When dinner was done, the staff led us across the hall into a large indoor theatre where we watched a production show of hula dancers. There were singers, costume changes, an Elvis impersonator, a Michael Jackson impersonator, and of course a fire dancer. All of it was absolutely amazing.

Not an amazing buffet. Food wasn’t warm and neither tasty.
For the show, it wasn’t a cultural performance. Most of it was about singer like Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley. But thé fire dancer was amazing
