I think the experience was average because the show was good—especially the fire performers. But overall, we left the luau feeling duped. The concierge at our hotel kept pushing this very expensive Luau and the all you can eat/drink package over the other luaus, but...More

Mahalo for posting a review of your experience. We are certainly glad to hear that you found the main performance interesting but apologize for the parts of your evening that didn't meet expectations. Thank you again for sharing your feedback.

I used capital letters to let you know how happy we were with the luau show at this location. It was incredible! We can only reference one other luau we attended on Maui, but I have to let you know how happy we were here....More

As a tourist, this Luau exceeded my expectations. The facility is large accommodating many hundreds of guests at tables that hold 10. Table assignment is by order of reservation, so reserve early. We were seated with 2 other families that were enjoyable to meet and...More

The show was amazing and all the performers were great. The food is served buffet style and is okay with an open bar but you just have to realize that fact. The seating is a bit cramped and under a cover probably due to all...More

This luau was recommended by our concierge at the Sheraton Kauai. I must admit that I really don’t like buffets AT ALL. The food was good the pork was excellent, and they had a free flowing bar with all the drinks, wine and kids drinks....More

My review is mainly about the food. So I’ll start off by saying the show was good, and the performers did a great job. It’s wasn’t the traditional performances you’d normally see at a luau, this was more of a storytelling. But I enjoyed it....More

We were at the rum tasting next door when we heard live music and a commotion. We decided to check it out, walked right in, grabbed a plate and a mai tai and sat down. We weren't as dressed up as everyone but still looked...More

We really enjoyed the luau. The mai tais were good and the kalua pork tasted great. The show was well done. They do a great job of telling the story

We did not find the entertainment to be really loud and we sat in the front row next to the stage. There were lots of young children present who appeared to enjoy the show. I believe the show was over by 9pm.
