Loved this whole evening from start to finish. The food was delicious and the staff were delightful and helpful! Show was beautiful! Highly recommend.
This was my wife's and I first luau and when we go back to Kauai next year, we will do it again.
This luau was really good. We got picked up by a tour wagon and went through the garden to get to the area of the luau. They dropped us off in the area where we would eat. Before we got to that area, we walked to watch them dig up the pig that was cooking in the ground with other foods. The buffet was plenty and very organized. They even told us to go back for seconds and thirds. They had entertainment on a stage right by our table while we ate. They also had audience participation. After the great meal, we walked a path to where the luau was taking place. It was an area that was covered in case of rain. It did rain but the rain let up for the show. They also supplied big umbrellas and shell lei's for us to wear. There were so many acts of music of all kinds of the Hawaii culture. So colorful and very exciting. They were on a stage that looked like it was floating on the water....the reflections of it all was in the water to make it more beautiful. 3 others went with us to hawaii but didn't get to book this Luau cause it was sold out. They went to other luaus and we compared notes and I showed them clips of all the acts I saw and dances and stories. They were so impressed and said next time they were going to go to the Smith Family one cause theirs never even came close to ours in entertainment. After hearing about their luau's and knowing what I saw, I will go to the Smith family luau again. We also met a few of the Smith family and they were so down to earth and a joy to talk with.
Food was excellent. Although there were a lot of people the Smith family really makes the luau a special night. I enjoyed the food, history, gardens, and show.
This place was very organized! After showing our voucher and getting tickets, we were directed to the trams tour which took us around the beautiful grounds and gardens. We had about 30 min. to explore and then saw the cooked pig removed from underground. Food delicious!
The food is absolutely amazing and the show afterward was great. Very glad we booked it.
If you ask anyone about the different Luau around, they will all tell you that this is the best one. If you're on the Pride of America cruise ship, do not take the luau they are offering. Opt to get this one as the Smith Family will show you a great time. The grounds are fantastic, the meal is fantastic and the show is just as fantastic.
Awesome. Very familiar oriented. Everyone was so nice. Very organized. Great food. And the show was amazing.
Very nice they picked you up on a little bus at the beginning of the resort and take you through their garden tour the dinner was absolutely amazing free drinks all you can eat the luau was amazing dancers spectacular that garden spectacular live peacocks and all other animals roaming the grounds. Everybody there was so loving and welcoming will go back again when I have a chance
The Smith Family Luau was great. We were running an hour late getting there, but even so we didn't miss dinner or much entertainment or drinks, though we had to walk through the garden rather than getting the mobile tour and description. The food was very good kahlua pig, chicken, fish, beef, vegetables, fruits, salads, poi, etc, and I had to restrain myself from going back again and again. You can get weak Mai Tais, fruit punch and Longboard or light beer, as much as you want before they shut down the dinner venue. Then you walk down to the theater. We managed to get front row seats even though there were hundreds in there before us, but even those in back got good views, since seating goes up as you go back. Front row seats made picture taking much better. They had the typical Polynesian Luau dancing plus Filipino, Japanese and New Zealand dances, with a haka by a group of men that seemed to confuse lots of people, because it didn't get much reaction. There was a meet and greet at the end. We all had a great time!
After a drive round the beautiful gardens we watched as the cooked pig was removed from the ground oven. Then we found seats at long tables and collected our first local drink made of rum 'Mai Tai' and fruits. It was a buffet for the meal with local foods including the roast pig and it was really delicious. Then we walked to the seating area and watched a fantastic show of dancing, singing and lighting effects. Definitely worth the price of admission!
This was awesome!!!!! Beautiful Park warm and friendly family wo runs it. The food was amazing. My wife and I enjoyed the show.
This was an absolutely amazing luau! Our taxi driver told us it was the best on the island and we completely agree with his assessment - it was wonderful! The setting was beautiful, the food was exceptionally delicious, and the hospitality of the Smith family was incomparable! The entertainment was fabulous and in the perfect surroundings for an Hawaiian Paradise adventure - what an incredible value for the money spent! Would definitely recommend this luau for anyone traveling to Kauai!
Smiths Tropical Paradise was awesome. The best luau on the island, no question.
