“A nice authentic luau”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

We took in the Old Lahaina Luau on our recent trip to Maui. The site is beautiful. The food was great and the service fantastic. It is an authentic luau, so there is no fire dancers. The show is more a telling of the Hawaiian culture than actual dancing. The costumes were a little boring. We did enjoy the evening, but next time I think I will take in a different show.

We went to the Old Lahaina Luau maybe 17 years ago. I would really recommend it, it was right on the beach, part of the show were the actors coming in from their canoes on the water, the food was average but the entertainment was fabulous. You can't beat the whole package and the ambiance. Go, enjoy!

“Great Hospitality at a Traditional Hawaiian Luau”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

The food was interesting, but not exceptional. Edible and filling. The show was very reflective of Hawaii's culture and tradition. IT was not a "Las Vegas" revue, but a visual story told through dance. We enjoyed it and the evening.

“SOOOOO happy we did this Luau”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

We were told prior to visiting Maui that this was the best Luau on the island. We were very, very pleased with the whole experience. For almost $100 per person, I still felt it was a great value. Our server was amazing, remembered everyone's names and the food was great!!! The whole experience felt very authentic from the costumes, the dancers, the dancing, the whole facility. I loved the whole story that was told through the Hula and really felt the spirit of Hawaii while we were there. We booked the mat seats and thank goodness we did!!! When you book the mat seats, you are right next to the stage and you eat first too! Definitly, book the mat seats and be prepared to take lots of pics! Great experience!

“Wonderful Story of Hawaii”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

From start to finish the evening was delightful. As you enter you are greeted by smiling staff and yummy mai tai's and non-alcoholic beverages. You are quickly seated with a great view of the stage no matter where you sit.
Once settled we wandered around to have pictures taken by a very knowledgeable staff and a picturesque setting.
Once served, the food was good and the show even better. The dancers are incredible, they move so beautiful and the narration paints a beautiful picture of Hawaii through the years. The wait staff is very attentive, you never wait for anything. They are helpful and courteous and work very hard to make your evening perfect. We sat with a couple that return every year and now we know why! This is an event not to miss :)
