Owner description: Myths of Maui Luau The last rays of a spectacular sunset, beating drums and the call of the conch shell signal the start of Maui's most exciting and longest running Polynesian luau. You will enjoy a breathtaking celebration of traditional Hawaiian, Tahitian, Samoan and Maori dance and music as performers weave the legends of the South Pacific into a spellbinding performance you are sure to treasure for years to come.

Only one person in our party actually liked their food. It was like a Hawaiian-style golden corrall, but not as nice. The show was really good except that the guys playing music during dinner played only two songs and then took a break from which they never returned. The rest of the performers were top notch though.

We went here in 2009 and didn't enjoy it as much but we gave it another chance. There were 10 of us including 2 infants and a toddler. We chose this place because we wanted my parents to enjoy the fire dance. I didn't pay for the premium seating since it was $10 more but we ended up being sat in the premium seats (front row). The food was better than I remembered it to be. The Kalua pork was moist and tasty (not too salty). Everyone enjoyed their food and my parents enjoyed the show. The fire dance was definitely worth going to. My parents and in-laws couldn't stop talking about the show. The host was very cheesy but he has to be I guess to keep the show lively. Definitely look for deals. Don't pay the full price. There are lots of deals on the free magazines they have scattered around. We booked ours same day with Expedia travel tours. They have an office on the hotel premises.

The positive: the place has a nice ocean view. The negative: waiting in a long line because everyone is taking the group picture while entering to the place. Photo that they ask $20.. reeeaaalllyyyy!? Once inside, really bad organization and the service is poor. As someone else said, we walk on dirt, and we sit on plastic chairs at vinyl tables. Then we still have to wait for the dinner. The daylight goes away and we notice that we are in a place that has no light, we eat in the dark. The show starts late at 7pm. We left at 7:30pm before the show is over.

We went to the Royal Lahaina Luau and had a great time. We booked this online and paid about $69 per person without having to go to a timeshare presentation. The food was above average, but not the best we have had at other luaus. The fire dancers were awesome and something you don't see at every luau! The drinks were good, not too watered down. We had a great time with our family.
