“Free Luau Show”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

The free Luau show is great at The Shops. Plenty of seating for every one. The music was great, the MC lady did well and the dancers were wonderful. We bought snacks at the grocery store there.

“Expensive shops, but GREAT free Polynesian hula show”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Free show every Monday and Thursday night at 7pm. Their dances are very good and they even have fire dancers and little, itty bitty kiddie dancers. We later went to a $$$ luau and the dancers at the Shops at Mauna Lani were just as good and performed almost as long as the ones at the luau. Worth seeing!!!

“Just Tacos- for food and drink value”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

As others have noted this is a pricy location. The Tommy Bahama shop is fun. Otherwise better shopping south at Wiakoloa King and Queen's shops. Best meal value and 64oz Margarita at Just Tacos. It was so unbelievably large that several people not only stared but actually asked us it…fortunately we were walking the person drinking it home…

“Beautiful Grounds, Great Shops”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Took a shopping and beach trip. The resort was beautiful. Eat at Tommy Bahama's. Make sure you packed your swim/ stuff for a nice afternoon at the beach after lunch. Ask at Tommy's how to get to the 49s black beach on the resort. Public access is ok and there is room for about 20 cars. Showers and bathrooms are at the beach! It was awesome. There is no shade so take an umbrella.

“Rudeness at the hula/fire show”
Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

The host at the free hula and fire show is very rude. She was disrespectful to one of the dancers. She pushed a dancer in front of everyone. The audience watching felt awkward while watching her treat the dancers unkindly. After the show, I witnessed the host being mean to one of the tourists. The tourist asked for a picture with the dancers, she brushed off the tourist saying that she didn't want to take the picture. So another tourist that witnessed the same incident stepped-in to take the picture. This show needs a new host.
