Magic of Polynesia
In this long-running magic extravaganza, master illusionist John Hirokawa headlines an evening of great music, entertainment and animated special effects. Performed in the 700-seat showroom in the Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel , this show has across-the-board appeal, attracting visitors and Honolulu residents. Call for reservations.

The show was entertaining, once you get past the awkwardness of the opening act. The dancers were good...the illusions were ok. We saw Michael Valleria perform. Some of it was a little corny, but overall, not awful. The best part was the finale. What was awful was the food and the price. We paid for the "deluxe" package, which was a rip off. The steak, if you want to call it that, was overdone. The lobster was cold. The dessert was a real disappointment. The price, which was really high, only included tea, coffee and water. Also, dinner was rushed, and the waitress was bringing our check before we had even decided that we were finished. Expected way more for the money...big disappointment.
Probably the worst display of "illusion" I have ever seen. It is obvious that those who work in this show have gotten lazy because the tour buses fill his theatre everynight. I dont think the japanese really know good magic, so maybe they were impressed but nobody else was
Of the "1 hour show" hirokawa is only on stage for about 15 minutes of it doing magic. the rest of the time is spent telling lame jokes, working with people he planted in the audience, terrible hula dancing
Do not waste your money
My husband and I where really looking forward to go to the Magic of Polynesia. We arrived at the hotel where they were doing construction, and went to go check in for the show and we decided to upgrade to the Lobster & Steak dinner with the VIP seating. Well let me just start with the dinner, the Lobster was frozen and the 3 oz steak they only serve it one way "burnt". I have had bigger pieces of beef jerky. It was awful. The dessert we took it with us for a game of Hockey. Man, do not waste your time going to this! It was awful! They would have been better of serving McDonalds.
The show...lol, I do not think SHOW is the right word here. Anyway it took forever to begin, they started off with this lady that was dressed in a very nice black floor length sexy dress, s but the fact is she probably looked better in it thirty years ago!!. She took about 35 minutes to welcome everyone in every known language and sung every national anthem possible; she mostly spoke Japanese and talked about herself. This was the worst show I have ever been to and would not recommend this show to anyone. It was the biggest waste of time and money.
The biggest reason everyone gathers at this beachfront restaurant is the music and the patio sunsets. The sound is "Contemporary
Hawaiian" and appeals to a youngish demographic. The food includes fresh fish, burgers and a tasty club sandwich. The ...
The velvet rope might be an institution in some cities, but it hasn't become too prevalent in Honolulu yet, and
certainly not here. The only requirements at this relaxed Waikiki dance club are that you be ready to party ...
The three spacious dining rooms here are almost always packed with tourists and residents alike. In addition to regional Mandarin,
Szechuan and Cantonese dishes, the restaurant serves excellent prime rib and a great lobster and crab combination. One must ...
