“Absolutely Loved it..Highly recommended”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Aunt Tutu is so entertaining..Entertainment all the way through.
From taking a photo when you enter to the Fire dance at the end. Yes it is expensive..and we sat in the Premier seating...but worth every penny.
The dancers are all amazing. So Beautiful and graceful.
Learnt how to do the Hula with Aunt Tutu..was so much fun.

“Great event with children, but a bit hard on the wallet”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

We went with two children, 1 & 3 years old, and had a great time. Very entertaining and fun for everyone. Food was good as were the cocktails.

Its every bit what you expect from an overpriced hawaiian event, but we still felt it was worth it. Event ran for about 3 hours. Arrive early to get a good table as it was first come first served. Also, book online to save $10 per person. Do not book through agency or you might get the "car lot" treatment.

This is a kitschy luau. Very over priced. Food was good, but more is needed in the entertainment area. Fire dancer was good. But for almost $400 for a family of four I expected much more. Been to better luaus on Oahu and Maui.

“It is what you expect”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

This is meant to entertain the touristy mainlanders. It is cheesy and fun. The food was better than I expected with choices for everyone. The entertainment was kitschy. Drinks were decent

“Fine Luau”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

This is the Waikoloa Marriott's luau. While we didn't stay here, this is a beautiful property. The venue is not so large that reserved seating was needed, but do get there early. We arrived at 5:02pm and needed help to find a good seat. For $101pp, we had an open bar, decent buffet (the pork was really a highlight) and a good show highlighting various South Pacific islands. Be prepared, we had about 2 hours of afternoon sun before sunset with little to no shade. If you can swing it, go to the Four Seasons' Luau instead - better venue, better food, service, and better show. We went there last time and there's no comparison.
