The hotel put on a very good Luau. We did not pay extra for VIP seats, it got you a Leigh and closer to the stage by about 10ft. The food was excellent. Service was the best we had on our trip. Drinks full all the time and always trying to please you. This event is a good time.

The food was plentiful with Fish, pulled pork and Teryaki chicken with vegetables and poi bread and salads and fruit. There were several desserts. The... More

The Hyatt Maui puts on a great show with the Drums of the Pacific Luau. The food was good, but the show was spectacular! The narrator was a great storyteller, and the performers were incredible. Great show for the entire family!

Food is terrible. Drinks are watered down and very low grade. Our server was not welcoming or attentive. Performance is so-so. Nothing feels authentic.

Food was terrible although plentiful and the drinks were bottomless but tasted like sweetened syrup with not much rum etc. Pretty disappointing as far as the professionalism of the show- if we hadn't paid so much ($260.00 US/couple) we wouldn't have minded but the cost was exorbitant for the product. I'd go so far as to say it was a... More

we just saw the Drums of the Pacific luau at the Hyatt Hotel in Maui. This was the 5th time we have participated in this luau. Joe was our server. He was great. He made sure we had everything we wanted. We will be back the next time we are in Maui.
