We enjoyed the show, very well done. The food was good, not great, but plentiful. Thought the deserts were just so so. The drinks they hand out to you when you come in were very weak, but the trick is to get them made at the bar. The bartender we had was the best, lots of alcohol and very tasty.... More

While visiting Maui for 6 weeks this year we went to 2 different luaus; the Old Lahaina Luau and the Royal Lahaina Luau. Both were great and had interesting differences. I'll compare the 2 so you can decide what's worth your $$. 1) Food - both were the same great food. Nothing stood out between them. 2) Drinks - both... More

Wonderful food, kahula pork, beef, chicken, many salads, rice and a variety of desserts. The entertainment was great, finishing with a fire dance. Met lots of great people from all over.

We booked our tickets through the hotel which is absolutely the way to go! We were staying at the Honua Kai and the Royal Lahaina Luau is walking distance. We stood in line for our tickets and they pulled us out to the front of the line and lead us in. We had our picture taken at the front and... More

We got the VIP package, it was worth it. We got to sit up close and we could see the performers so good. They put on an awesome performance. We got the fresh flower leis, a ceramic statue and a shell lei with the VIP. The food was VERY good.

Loved it. You should go to a luau when your in Hawaii and this is definitely a good one. Was fun enjoyable, and even with the threat of flash flooding it was really fun :D. Go if your in Lahaina or Kaanapali Beach well worth true money.

A lovely venue with a great location for a spectacular sunset. The staff were good but the food was a little disappointing. The entertainment was good with a history story of the hawaiian islands through dance.

I did not want to go to a luau. I hate cultural shows and "myths" when traveling. I have seen so many bad ones with bad food and really bad "shows". I did not know that luau is Hawaiian for "buffet"? Just like the ancient Polynesians we were treated to watered down MaiTais and tasteless roast pork and hotdogs...with patio... More

We had gone as a group and they had reserved a table for our group. We were reasonably close to both food and drinks, as well as the show. The food and drinks were quite good and plentiful. They are very well organized and called table by table for the food. Second helpings were encouraged. The show was well choreographed,... More
