Too Commercial

Reviewed by: Gina Cruz, 2021/11/01

The day-long activities that are advertised are very commercial and scripted and inauthentic. Students from Brigham Young host most of the activities rather than local Polynesian community. The “luau” is also not what you would expect as they have you sitting in a huge stadium with projector screens and loud speakers showcasing a movie scene along with live “dancing” and “acting”. I would not recommend anyone I know to attend this event. Sorry to say but it was lame.

My friend and I were unable to attend as we both ended up with pneumonia the day before. We called Veltra to attempt to obtain our money back but unfortunately the company was unwilling to accommodate our request. As much as I understand company policy, I believe accommodations should be made in the name of customer service when it comes to something unavoidable like illness. Trust me, my friend and I were on vacation, we would have preferred the luau versus pneumonia for the remainder of our trip.

Warm Aloha Sunshine,

We regret to hear that you were not able to participate due to illness. Unfortunately, we do not have any records that you had called but we are able to offer you a partial refund for the two who were not able to go. A separate email has been sent to you in regards to this.

We hope that you can one day return and visit the Polynesian Culture Center.

Mahalo Nui Loa,

VELTRA Customer Support

The concept of buffet here is not the same....food is limited, the buffet is one trip only...so no seconds. The activity concludes with a nice show that lasts 1.5 hrs really late at night, after a long day. Would definetely not recommend, just a tourist trap sponsored by the Latter Day saints church
