  • If you came to Hawaii to drink and watch bikini girls on the beach then this is not your place. If you enjoy theatrical shows then you will enjoy the full day experience the center has to offer.
  • Waste of time and money. Spend the day at the beach instead!
  • Newbies: take the tour guide unless you're sure you'll be back a second day!
  • This place needs a BAR!
  • Note - The luau is "dry" probably because has some affiliation to LDS. We didn't find out until too late. The food is bad. Skip the luau and just go to the show.
  • It's a bit shocking to see so many bad reviews!do these ppl ever appreciate anything?:/ I absolutely loved the H:Breath of Life show & the food! also, they employ local students!Fantastic day!THANKS!
  • Run!! If you are still reading this you are not running fast enough.
  • This is definitely a tourist trap run by a religious cult. Would never give my $$$ to these people who promote hate.
  • Hawaii has too much natural beauty to spend as much time as is asked for this imitation
  • Visit with some of the employees, most of whom are incredible BYU-Hawaii students. Ask them about their stories, mainly what brought them to Laie, BYUH, and the PCC. They make the PCC what it is.
  • This place is stupid. It is sad that the most interesting thing is the trip to the Mormon temple. The girls who did the tour were lovely.
  • Stay away! Its a total ripoff with an $8 parking fee and a minimum $52 GA fee for an Disney version of something very importen!
  • HA The Breath of Life was an awesome show. Over 120 performers, which included a seven minute fire knife performance of up to nine fire knife dancers.
  • The upgraded buffet was pretty good. I really enjoyed the show and learning about the different cultures.
  • Pay the $25 for the lunch buffet and the guided tour. The buffet isn't great, but it's an efficient way to experience the entire attraction.
  • I didn't know what to expect here. Thought it would be boring and educational. I was blown away by how fun and funny it actually was. Highly recommended this if you have the time!!
  • I enjoyed walking around here and taking pictures during the day, then having dinner and watching the evening show (Ha, Breath of Life). http://www.polynesia.com/
  • Do not come here.
  • Check out Samoa!
  • Tourist trap. If you're a kid or retired, you might like. If not, avoid.
