If you are on a Hawaiian Island what is one attraction that comes to mind? A Luau. The Sunset Luau at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott was enjoyable and the food was quite good for feeding 300 plus at a sold out event. Opens at 5pm with photographers taking photos that you can purchase later, open bar with so many options... More

After attending a luau on Kauai 2 yrs. ago and disappointed we chose to try again. We were not disappointed this time. The food was fabulous as was the entertainment. Beverages flowed freely. We got to see the imu this time as we were there in plenty of time as we did the luau ourselves and not through a tour... More

Food, very good, drinks, excellent, show good from what I could see! As low as the stag is and with 5 rows of round tables, if your in the fourth row like we were you could only see bits and pieces of the show. I would think a platinum elite Marriott member would get better seating preference. Not worth the... More

My husband and I were visiting the Marriott Waikoloa for our anniversary and had never been to Hawaii before. We were interested in going to a luau while on the Big Island and were surprised to learn that they host them twice weekly at this hotel! The food was good, especially the traditionally cooked Kalua pork, and all of traditional... More

This was nice, but was not as nice as the one we experienced in Oahu. The show was very nice and the food was good. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous. My husband actually took one photo each minute for the last 30 minutes of the sunset

The show was great, definitely worth buying the premium tickets that get you in the first row of the stage, a real flower lei, and first up to the buffet tables. The buffet was not great - I thought a lot of the meat was very fatty. Side dishes not terribly tasty. But we were primarily there for the show... More

The location was excellent - and the weather co-operated to give us a beautiful sunset. Our meal was delicious and filling and the open bar added to the sense of monies well spent. The entertainment was very good - the mc gave us an excellent overview of the history surround each segment of the performance and the entertainers themselves were... More
