Once we got into the seating area, the entire show was great. There were stations set up showing all different types of Hawaiian culture and activities, including spear-throwing and board games. The actual show was also great. The MC was very professional and humorous. The dancers were impressive, especially the Polynesian Fire Dancer.

The only things I would have changed would have been a faster check-in system and more time before dinner to explore the different stations.

p.s. Guys on your honeymoon: I hope you don't have stage-fright!

We had a great time! The food was wonderful! The show was great! The staff was warm and friendly! We've been to bigger luaus but this one was the perfect size.

When you pay 115 for adults and 47 for kids over 5 you expect a lot. What you end up with is dried out mahi mahi and chicken and a bunch of filler garbage. I knew it was going to be bad when the MC started thanking different groups, military, first responders, etc. I'm not saying we shouldn't be thankful for all those groups but a luau is not really the place for this. Heck, he went on to the point of me expecting him to dedicate the luau to "the gipper". On the bright side, the sides and pork were very good as well as the bar. With that said, do not drink the watered down pre-made cocktails like the mai tai's.

On our way back we caught the fire dancers at the end of the luau at the Westin and based on the crowd cheers and what we sat this show looked night and day better.

Bottom line, do not waste your money on this luau.

We could skip the polynesian stuff , we go for the KAHLUA PIG. It's the best you can get. The dinner is amazing. Think about it, we take our family all of the time, and we've seen the Luau dancers (yawn)but we keep going back for the food. It's the best meal we had in the whole 10 days we were there. We'll do it again too!!

We're a couple in our early 30's with no children, and this was marginally entertaining for us. For $210, we each received a few drinks, an average buffet dinner, and a fairly slow show. The fire dancer at the end was definitely the highlight. Seating is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis unless you pay extra for premium seating. We decided to arrive early and wait in line to get decent seats. There were 5 couples at our table, so there's the opportunity to make new friends if you wish. Overall, though, it sort of felt like being at wedding where you don't know any of the other guests. We got some good pictures and had a decent evening, but for the money and time, I would probably have had more fun at a nice restaurant.
