“A wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

The wife and I went for our anniversary and had a great time. The staff were all wonderful,helpful, and attentive to our needs. The food was ok, nothing exceptional but the show was great. One thing I would have wished was that there could have been adult only tables (I have 2 kids we left with grandma and if I wanted to have a thing of creamer dumped on me, I would have brought them). Worth the money in my opinion.

“Went for the performance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Great experience here. We went for the experience not so much the food. The luau was great, the food was good for buffet style but nothing spectacular. It's something you have to do once in Hawaii. You won't regret it!

“Reserve early for traditional front row seating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

My wife and I went for our first luau experience. The staff was friendly and fun and leis were presented upon entrance. The location made for a perfect spot to see the sunset. The show was entertaining and buffet food was overall good. I wouldn't come here just for the food, but combined with the show and view of the sunset made for a great experience.
If you don't mind sitting on the floor, book early for the traditional seating (no additional charge) which puts you much closer to the performers and also earlier access to the self serve buffet.
Also, if you want a view of the kalua pig, go early to the pit, otherwise you won't be able to see them remove the pig.
Unless you arrive early, the parking lot will likely be full however staff will direct you to the parking lot at the plaza across the street.

“Great Luau Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Wonderful atmosphere and show. Traditional Luau food served buffet style. Open bar included with ticket price. Beautiful setting. Staff is warm and welcoming. Food is average but the show and atmosphere are well worth the price. Professional photographers are set up to take optional photos. Photos are available for purchase at the end of the show. Concierge at our resort said this Luau tends to sell out early, so recommend booking a couple of weeks in advance. We would definitely do this on the next trip to Maui.

“Wedding reception for our son and Elisha. We also celebrated our 50th anniversary there.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The only thing I would say for the older people in a party. Ask to be seated on the chairs, not the pillows on the carpet.
