We did this one in the rain. They handed out disposable ponchos, which sufficed. This luau is half Hawaiian and half South Pacific. The drums tell the difference. The mild Hawaiian hulas are fine, but we went for the more demonstrative South Pacific dances. Worth the trouble. No refunds. This puppy goes on rain or shine.

We had a wide range in ages in our party and everyone found something to love! The food was terrific and even included a children's station for the more tame of hearts.

The show which lasted an hour was good. But the whole package designed with the Buffet, open Bar and the show seems too pricey for the experience. The show in itself is good, but the drinks are diluted and the buffet is ok at best. If you have a packed vacation, you can give this a miss. Not a must... More

This was our first Luau. It was great and we had a wonderful time. We would recommend it to others visiting Maui.

Went to the luau the last night in Maui. Purchased tickets for general seating from our hotel. Three lines formed before the show, VIP line first, next level tickets second, and general seating last. Each ticket level defines how close you are to the stage and who goes first to the buffet. Even with general seating, we were shown to... More

My daughter had her heart set on a Luau since the moment we mentioned Hawaii. This one was recommended by staff at the condo we rented. It was a good price for what you get, and we absolutely loved the show!! The food was all really good and for those who drink, the drinks kept coming! It was nice that... More

Beautiful vibrant dancers and great food! Drinks were not good and hence the open bar was pointless.

Average for a hotel hosted event. Food was okay; the usual- lomi lomi salmon, poi, purple potatoes, kalua pork, teriyaki chicken, salad, fresh fruit. noodles. Very plentiful, seemed like a lot left over. Desserts were typical mass produced fare. Dry bread pudding, flavorless gelatinous coconut square, some kind of brownie thing, a mystery mango thingy. Premium ticket was almost $150... More
