The Marriott is beautiful, we recommend you arrive early and walk around the grounds. The sunset view here is one of the best. The open bar starts right away so you want to get there early. The bar lines are long but it gives you...More

There’s no such thing a bad seat for this luau! We considered the VIP seating, but decided against it and ended up sitting at a table right behind the VIP tables. The line for the dinner buffet moved quickly. The servers were constantly monitoring the...More
