I brought a group of about 20 wedding guests to this luau right after everyone arrived as a way to welcome many of our first time travelers to Hawaii. It was an excellent choice. We had great weather, the service was outstanding, and everyone had a fantastic time. I have to provide the highest praise to the staff running this... More

The show and the performers were amazing. We had premium seats so the view was perfect. We loved every bit of it. The food was good bearing in mind it was a mass catered buffet. The roasted pig and the steak was the best. Stay clear of the pasta and the coleslaw though.

Wonderful food and atmosphere. Greeted with a flower Lei. Unfortunately it started to rain, but they were prepared with Ponchos for everyone. I wish the food had been covered because I would have gone for seconds but everything got wet. The dancers and fire dancers were incredible!

The show was good, the food was so-so. We paid extra for seating in the first 2 rows and it was worth it with 2 small children. It's something we thought we would do once but if we come back to Maui, it's nothing we're planning on doing.

A luau is a tourist trap but worth doing. The reason for the low stars was the fact the tiki carver was not there after we were promissed he would be there. We still do this one everytime we visit

Fabulous luau, great food - the dancing and music have a real Tahitian feel and sound but absolutely spectacular! A great choice, especially if you've been to a few Hawaiian luaus.

This was my first luau and I was not disappointed. The setting was great, with the ocean in the background & the sunset as the evening progressed. We arrived a bit early so we could get our choice of seating. It was rather hot so we claimed a table that was in the shade. There were several tables set up... More

Normally food at a Luau leaves something to be desired...The food at this one is very well prepared, the ceremony and the dance were engrossing. They have an option to pay more for priority seating in front of the stage, pay it!!! It makes a world of difference in the experience!

This was a very nice luau. Set with an ocean view, good buffet, nice show, some vendors with local crafts, ok drinks (open bar), all the luau necessities. Get there on time so you can get better seats. Its hot and sunny, so better seats don't necessarily mean up front. Opt for seats within the first half of the tables... More

We've never been to a luau before and we were anticipating that since it was a buffet the food would be mediocre. The food was great! We were really surprised by the quality and the variety was nice. The drinks that they were offering with the luau were mediocre, but that is to be expected with an open bar. The... More
