My husband and I really enjoyed the show. Great food, good drinks, and very entertaining show. Service was excellent. Would definitely recommend this luau, but it is the only one we've been to so not much to compare.

We went with friends and their kids too, enough of us to fill a table. We paid premium for seats and were right up front. Saw Hank Azaria there and I begged him for a picture with him while he was standing in the buffet line, sorry Hank. The luau area was on the southern part of the property, a good spot. The next week we went again because more family arrived and they wanted to go. There was a private function at that luau spot so the grand luau was moved to the northern part of the property, not as nice of a location as the southern spot the week before. Food was good enough both times, but being Canadians they probably didn't make much off us and the unlimited drinks. Kids had a great time with the pre show activities.

There are many luau's on Maui, and most are very good, but this one is a cut above the rest ... the best food and a perfect show!

The good part was the food -- some of the best we've had at a luau -- and the friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts and servers. Also, it's an easy drive if you're staying in Kihei. The not-so-good was the show. I don't know if it was because we were there during the off season, but the performers didn't measure up to others we have seen. Drinks were a little watery.

This was really a excellect Luau. The location was beautiful and right on the water. We watched the sun set while people were coming in, it was magical. The food was great, much better than other luau's I have been to. So many times you go to these things and pay a ton for tickets and still have to buy drinks. Not here! Open bar all night, which was great. The best part about this luau was the show though. It was truly the best show I have seen of this nature. They told the story of the Hawaiian people and they gods and fables. It was beautiful and the dancers were great. All of the staff was top notch. This is by far the best luau on Maui. Don't miss it and check the local costco for tickets cheaper.
