We found this Luau from Costco which sold adult tickets for $80 ($25 discount). Children under 5-12 was discounted 25% from Costco but was confusing about if we needed to purchase ticket from Costco or not. Just in case we bought one but returned the xtra one. The 25% discount for our 1 child was paid via CC by calling... More

I guess it's nice to see if this is your first time to Hawaii. My wife and 4 year old son enjoyed it. I wouldn't see it again. The food was ok, open bar was good. Buy your tickets at Costco for 24% off adults ($80). Kids 5 and under are free. Free valet parking the resort is really nice.... More

You have to go to at least 1 Luau whilst in Hawaii. We really enjoyed this one and enjoyed the food drinks and entertainment. Touristy yes - but then that is what you would expect.

Wasn't sure what to expect for our first live Luau. Being from Jersey, our only visual of a luau is from tv (Brady Bunch in Hawaii comes to mind...guess I just dated myself). The staff was very pleasant and Island friendly. The 9 act show was entertaining and informative. Love learning the history of other cultures. The food was ok,... More

This is our Third Luau on Maui. We choose this luau because it was close to our Kihei condo and the price was reasonable for a family of four. The parking situation was a bit confusing at first, we drove around trying to find the parking lot, even after asking two different people(seem like they were unsure). Eventually we pulled... More

I was not sure about doing the Luau as I saw many negative reviews. We stayed at the Wailea and wanted to attend a Luau as it was our first time to Hawaii so I went ahead and booked it. I booked it in advanced from home with premier seating. The show was fun, and entertaining. Better than I expected.... More

We were a little undecided on whether to attend a Luau, knowing that sometimes these performances can be cheesy and the food mediocre at best. We were pleasantly surprised to find the buffet offering delicious, the open bar had plenty of options and the performances were a delight. The seating is wedding-style so if you're stuck with a family of... More

If you are looking for a luau with less than mediocre food, watered down drinks, and a performance put on by what seems like a middle school production, by all means go ahead. If that does not sound like your thing, book EARLY with the Old Lahaina Luau. We went to that luau on a previous trip to Maui, which... More

Okay, I'm not an expert on Luau's but I had a great time. The setting was beautiful. The show was very entertaining. The buffet was pretty good too.

Overall the food and entertainment was average for a luau. A smaller setting here but that also meant less food choices at the buffet lines. Open bar is as to be expected with slightly watered down drinks. Entertainment highlight was the fire dancer. With such a large resort, not all of the staff was aware that the luau was moved... More
