We had 3 couples last year. We went just after lunch. Saw many pavalions and shows, including the canoe show in the middle of the afternoon. We went there with a mind to learn and enjoy the different culture, the singing and dance. It was really really good. Wished we had more time.
We did the package including the luau and the night show. The luau show was good. Food was not bad, but not great. But the atmosphere was good. You get a flower lei at the entrance. Because we lined up early, we were able to get a seat at the front and right by the stage to see the shows. They don't serve alcohol, so that may disappoint some people. I like wine with my dinner, but it was no problem because we were in paradise, immersed in an incredible cultural experience.
The night Horizon show is a must. It was so good I during the break I went out to buy a DVD and book describing the performance. After the show we were tired, and as the driver it was even more tiring for me, having to drive 1.5-2 hr back to Waikiki.
If you get the Entertainment book, you can use the coupon to get discount (I forgot, but was worth the money of the book) for the ticket.
