“Awesome!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We came over to this bar from our hotel. Great drink and food options with a great view. Our waiter was wonderful. The best part about the bar was when the misters came on. It was so hot outside and this made it super comfortable. Also good for people watching. The pool actually surrounds the bar.

“Hidden gem of an attraction!!!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We found out about the "cliff diving ceremony" at the Maui Sheraton by doing some online research. We made it a part of our one day Maui visit because it was cool and different and historically relevant. We parked at the Sheraton garage and walked out the the Cliff Dive Bar. We had already had dinner in downtown Lahaina, so we only had a few drinks. Not a huge beer selection but a fully stocked bar at decent prices. My husband's Captain and Cokes were very tasty!! No watered down tourist drinks here!!

We got there about 45 minutes before sunset just to make sure we didn't miss anything. Glad we did. We had front row seats for the entire ceremony..the "diver" even came out early to light the torches and pose for pictures with guests.

There is a pre-recorded narration of the history of the ceremony and what it represents. The Sheraton badly needs new speakers near the pool bar, but the audio was still clear enough to hear the story.

Ceremony actually takes place before the sun actually sets, so there are really two shows: cliff diver and sunset. Neither should be missed!!! We got some amazing pictures, some wonderful memories and a little history lesson.

“Typical burger joint with a view”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We were told about the diving ceremony on the Black Rock by Sheraton in Kaanapali and a place where we could have great drinks and food. The drinks, well, it was Monday night and the burger was OK, Not amazing, not bad either, but for $17 there are other places in Lahaina with better food.

Go for the view and the ceremony, but don't expect much from the food and drink side.

“Strong drinks, good food”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

I didn't expect much from an outdoor pool bar, so I was blown out of the water (pun intended) by the quality of drinks and food here. We had Mai Tais and the White Water drink and both were really strong and delicious. After trying multiple watered down drinks at other bars, this was a happy surprise. We also ordered an appetizer of fish and steak skewers. They were really good, especially the fish which had a fabulous sauce drizzled on top.
