The ticket price at Costco for this Luau is around $80 and includes the tax and will also save you 25% off the price o children's tickets. You have to call and reserve your seats. Also know that a member of your party should be there for the 4-4:30pm table assignment line-up. they let people in at 5pm but the grounds are amazing so we walked around looking at the gardens and ponds for the 30 minutes. (My husband was there to line up at 3:30 and got us center table 3rd row and we felt we had good seats. The first two rows people pay extra for and that is not available with the Costco discount.) The view is amazing as this Luau has a great view of the ocean and the sunset. They'll take your picture with one of the performers but charge $25 for it at the end of the show. There are crafts to look at and purchase for the pre-show as well as the advertised temporary tattoos and a gentleman who makes animals etc. with palm leaves. (Be aware that these are 'by donation' though you would assume with the ticket price they would be free.) The open bar kept us stocked with Mai Tai's, Pina Coladas and cocktails. They did virgin Pina Coladas for the children. They had a great way of moving people through the evening: We all sat for the intros at 6pm, they had a number of food stations so it seemed like everyone had their food within 15 minutes, they stopped so everyone could watch the amazing sunset, there was then the Hula lesson on stage, time for dessert and then the show. The show was a mix of Polynesian, Hawaiian and modern dance including an arial silk section. The food was good for us but we like the lomi lomi, poke, kuala pig - basically we enjoy the exotic. Decent but not spectacular. The desserts were good. It did get a little chilly toward the end of the show. It was our first luau and we really enjoyed ourselves. We would be happy to go back but all agreed that we would like to try other ones since they all seem to offer different things.

The show itself was great, kept everyone entertained, always somewhere new to look! The show was a good length of time as well (not to long). The food was good and the service was ok.

We went to the hotel directly to book and found that the adult ticket was $110 and the children's tickets were $60. Someone then advised me that Costco in Maui sells them; so we went to Costco and paid $79.99 for adult ticket and $42 for the kids' ticket. Costco only sells the adult ticket but there is a phone # on back of card that you phoned to purchase the kids tickets and also book the Luau at the same time. With a family of four, we've saved about $110. That is a lot of money. The food was good and the entertainment was good. We are glad we went to the Luau and happy that we bought our tickets at Costco.

The program was great, the food not so, but still okay. Pay the few dollars extra for prime seats. We sat right up front and had a great time. Bring a jacket, though, sometimes the breeze gets cool.

Great outdoor venue and well preformed Luau Story. The open bar is included with your ticket. The food was well presented and prepared and proper temperature in the large four row buffet serving area. The food was the best tasting we have experienced at a Luau, well done! Want a great Luau experience, this is the one! Only downside, they need more restroom access closer to the venue.
