They unveil the pig when the cliff dive happens so you miss that. Website said 3 hrs - it was 2 and they took food and drinks away even before that. Half of the very few performers were not Hawaiian and laughable. Drink options were a joke. One bartender. Didn't say my name during birthday mentions. Audience does more performing... More

Small waves so you can enjoy rafting, snorkeling, kayaking or paddle board! Plus, you get to snorkel and see tropical fish. Great day at the beach.. however crowded!

I know this is a religious ceremony but it's overrated. Nothing more than watching a warrior light a couple of torches and then dive off a cliff. Not worth making a special trip to see (which we did).

Grab a drink from the Sheraton bar, and a bit of sand or lounge chair and watch the show. They tell you the Hawaiian story as runners light the torches and then jump off black rock. True Hawaiian. Tourist and locals both jump from black rock - scary and fun all in one. Great place to enjoy the sunset.

For the end of our trip we wanted to attend a luau. The hotel concierge signed us up for the Sheraton black Rock luau. At over 120 per person this was a ripoff and the only negative of our vacation. ONE bartender for 200 people. A bad game show host as MC with sex comments with kids in the audience.... More

We chose to see the luau in the Sheraton hotel because of the smaller Group size and sunset factor. It was raining heavily when we were supposed to go in, so they moved it inside into the ballroom. Besides it being delayed for an hour, and having lots of standing in line for no reason, it was a fun show... More

This was a fun and upbeat show with plenty of good food. We were able to see the lighting of the torches on the black rock (a nightly tradition) and enjoy a very professional show. Very interactive with the crowd, which always makes it more fun and the food was very tasty. Would do it again.

My girlfriend and I attended this luau, as a first timer my self and my gf having seen one on Oahu before, it was still a great luau in a beautiful location. The Sheraton hotel is easily accessible in Kaanapali, making this luau easy to get to. The dancers were fantastic but compared to luau's on Oahu the costumes were... More

had seen a luau there 15 years ago and it was different but still enjoyable. The food was so so but the show was good. the master of ceremonies was outstanding. trinkets for sale at prices higher than I thought were valued. Photos were high. take your own. place was fun and view was great of water.
