One expects endless drinks and wonderful food at a luau but this luau is over the top! The entertainment made this one extra special. Fabulous dancers and a fire eater/dancer! The singers and musicians were top rate also. Should you visit the Big Island don't miss this luau held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Reasort. Since... More

This was a truly spectacular luau. The Marriott is a beautiful hotel so walking in right from the start put us in a magical frame of mind. The imu ceremony and show were great and the performances were awesome. And I thought the food was really good! We paid for the upgraded seating, it was only $25 extra, and it... More

No trip to Hawaii is complete without a Luau. We booked this one through our cruise company and were not disappointed. The show was good with the traditional hula dancers and fire dancer. The food was good buffet style and overall the atmosphere was great. I would recommend this to anyone.

The food was good buffet food. Is buffet food ever great? Be quick if you have a big eater in your group because they move through the food fairly quickly and didn't seem to refresh anything. The open bar was good too. Try to sit on the side near the Kolea Villas because when the sun started going down we... More

After a lot of research we decided on this luau, which happened to be in the area we were staying. The musicians and dancers were fabulous...we appreciated the high level of talent, and the MC was appropriate and unobtrusive. The service and food was very good. DO get the premier seating; you are just off the stage with an unobstructed... More

After almost three weeks of traveling the Hawaiian islands and Indonesia we finally got around to attending a luau. Our hosts suggested this as the best on Big Island, so we said "yes". The performance was amazing! They wanted to sit up close (an extra cost) but were disappointed when we arrived an hour ahead of time, as instructed by... More

I wavered on whether or not to include a luau in our Hawaii travel plans due to the multitude of negative reviews; however, I decided to go as we had first time Hawaii travelers in our group. I looked at all of the luaus in the area and chose this one among those held on the nights of our stay,... More

Overpriced, poor quality food. Service staff very inattentive. Open bar is nice and staff there very nice. Consider dropping price of luau and charging for drinks. seated us in sun, 94 yo got very hot and uncomfortable before sun went down and staff not helpful. Show was average. Once sun went down setting was beautiful. Just not worth the price,... More
