Full disclosure: I used to live in Tahiti, Rarotonga, Kauai, and Oahu. I've been to a LOT of shows/dinners/luaus. This show was just superb. I do agree with some of the reviews: the food itself (you don't need to buy that portion, and purchase the...More

Not a traditional luau. Dinner was a buffet at the Marriott pool restaurant, food was good, but not what I expected. I thought it would be the traditional pig and would be set up on the beach, and that the entertainment would take place during...More

The meal was very disappointing. We had hoped for a true luau with a pig on a spit, etc., but it was just a small buffet with few options, none in of which very tasty. The show itself was very good though!

Let me start by saying that this is a very good show. Because the cast is largely made up of local teenagers (many from the local hula school), the show has the feel of an amateur/family production. My only issue with the show was that...More

For tickets, go to Hawaii Live Luau website. Select "show only" and "No", you don't have to be a guest at the Marriott to attend the show. Compared the NCL backed luau, this is much smaller, intimate, a family affair and a... More
