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.

This was our first luau and we were shocked to see a half mile long queue to enter the show. We waited for half an hour at the entrance waiting for our turn of pictures which we were not going to buy anyways. Each one of us got shell leis and a hand stamp for booze. We were given the table farthest from stage but never had difficulty seeing the performers though. The tables were packed and the server of each table served the fruit juice. We took few sunset shots and it was nice to see a beautiful Hawaiian themed stage with a beautiful sunset. Feeling of watching something without a rooftop is always fun...in simple open air shows!! We had no food expectations as vegetarians. The host spoke well with her apt voice modulation skill. The show began when most of us had something to eat. The host invited kids and adults intrested in learning hula dance to stage. We grabbed the opportunity and learnt few steps. Each table has turns to go and serve their food. They also had kid friendly food. Guava buns and cakes were treat to our eyes and mouth!! The noodles and rice were just okay. The sweet potatoes were amazing and I am not a big fan of them before. It lightly showered couple of times and the staff handed us rain ponchos.....I call them smart organizers. The rain did not ruin our fun!! The fire dance in the end was great. The show ran for around 2 hrs.

We purchased the tickets through a travel website. We were seated farthest away from the buffet that we had to wait over 30mins to get our turn. Others buying directly from them can request reserved seating for the best view and closest to the buffet. You get what you pay for. I didn't expect much from a buffet but the food wasn't good at all. There wasn't much selection and the food was bland.

They did have a few nice activities for the kids before dinner. There were a mix of dancers with the fire dancers the main attraction. The kids enjoyed the show but we wouldn't be back.

My husband and I had a blast at this luau. It's fun for any ages. Everyone is seated at big tables with people who may start out as strangers but by the end of the night are friends. People volunteered to learn the hula on stage and even the little kids had fun. The food is wonderful. Pulled pork, Hawaiian chicken, salad and drinks are included in your purchase price. The dancing was fun to watch and the fire dancing was awe inspiring. If you go through boss frogs you can get your luau tickets for $65 a person. A wonderful way to spend a night on Maui.

We were staying close by and had seen the luau while on a walk one night. We decided to go and I wasn't disappointed. I have been to their luaus and they were so over done and awful. This one was not that. It was kinda lounge lizard but in a good way. The dancers and vocalists were great and not canned. Everyone was pleasant and genuine and we had a great time. I highly recommend it!

My husband, 9 year old daughter and I loved this luau. The food was good, we learned about the Hawaiian culture and food at this luau. We bought local crafts. The announcer was great keeping the luau moving along. The dancers were good. The food was good and plentiful. They even had kid's food. Recommend this for a family looking for a fun luau.
