We went to the Luau on our first night and was disappointed with what we got for what we paid. There were basic tables of 30. Linens were older and we sat in white plastic lawn chairs. The buffet was average at best. The show itself was enjoyable as were the dancers, but overall, wasn't impressed.

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt (this luau) and were look forward to our first luau. As with all the food served at the Hyatt, the meal was prepared to perfection, and was a showcase of Hawaiian cooking. The meal is buffet style. An open bar for Mai Tai's, beer, and wine. The show was wonderful, with a narrator who... More

Fantastic Luau. Highly recommend. This was our first time at a Luau and we loved the wonderful music, dance, stories and excellent food. It rained during the show but the banquet staff handled it wonderfully- they were handing out towels within a minute and getting new drinks as soon as the showers subsided :) The dancers were fabulous .

We attended this Luau on 9/17/15. What a disappointment. This was our 8th Luau @ Grand Hyatt (Kauai), since 2002; and likely the last with their establishment. Things have changed, and not for the better. So many things were wrong that I had to write you and several travel websites even 3 weeks later; because I don’t want others to... More

This hotel has some of the most beautiful landscaping, pools, and fine sand beaches. The views are are indescribable for their beauty. There is a large salt water swimming area near the beach, that is very popular with the vacationers. The nightly entertainment was excellent, dancing performers, Hawaiian style, and Hawaiian type music. The rooms were excellently laid out, and... More

Just went to this luau a couple nights ago and after reading the reviews on here I was really hoping they would hold the event outdoors. Since the forecast kept predicting "rain on Sunday" the whole time in Hawaii, we were thinking we would be disappointed and Hyatt would hold the event in their grand ballroom. Well, guess what? We...

We went to a luau on this trip but not here. We had lunch at this hotel on the Ililma Terrace. It was perfect in setting, food, service. A wonderful place to spend a few hours.

My husband and I went to this luau on our honeymoon. We loved the food, the show, and of course the Mai Tais. Our server was excellent. I would recommend this luau to anyone staying in the Poipu area!
