I've been to Hawaii many times and this is my 4th Luau and this one is the best. Here's a rundown by attribute: Food- awesome! Allows for multiple trips after everyone ate. Not all Luaus do this. Load up on the Pork! Drinks- all you can drink. Bartender will make anything for you. Zero wait. Host- perfect. He's very talented,... More

The Maui Nui Luau was good fun. It's pricey ($236.00 USD for two, $10 premium seating, $20 for the picture they take of you when you enter if you want). It's very family oriented and all ages can have fun and learn about the culture of the islands. The evening starts with a long wait as they check you in... More

To be fair, the food was excellent, but the drinks were over almost as soon as they started. The program began while people were getting their food so most missed the cliff dive. The program was disjointed with a lounge lizard wearing out his welcome from the second song. The fire dancer was incredible, the dancers were good, but the... More

I have been to the Luau at the Hyatt and I have to say it is a toss up. The grounds of the Sheraton hotel are fantastic. Much more open than the Hyatt. The show itself I would give the nod to the Hyatt. Not by much but more polished than the Sheraton. Hyatt is more expensive than the Sheraton... More

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
