Not just a luau...an evening of entertainment, education and great food.

Attended on 4/10/17. Discounted tickets were $74 for Adults $50 for children through Boss Frog. If you are coming with a large group, be sure to negotiate. Held on the grounds of the Sheraton Hotel. The staff, buffet, location, and entertainment were all pleasant enough. As others noted, the mixed drinks are unremarkable, and the view of the stage is... More

I wanted to go to a luau on my first visit to Maui....we ended up at the Sheraton Kaanapali Sunset Luau at Black Rock. I attended with my boyfriend. We purchased the full ticket with dinner, drinks and entertainment. We were seated with a lovely group of people and loved to interact with other travelers during the evening! Everyone was... More

Luau's can be cliché with watered down drinks or they can be authentic luaus done well. The Sunset Luau at Black Rock combines authentic food,cultural dance, music and fire knives with a beautiful black rock beach setting. First and foremost, the performers are authentic but they are also welcoming and approachable for kids' and families' questions. It's clear they care... More

The show starts a bit early (5:30PM), and the sun is still hot at that point, it might be worth the extra money to get preferred seating as we did, to avoid some of that sun. Plenty of local foods and drinks and plenty of flair in the show. Dancers were amazing! The fire dancer towards the end was the... More

We expected authenticity for a luau, and this felt a bit "touristy." Don't get me wrong, the dances and audience participation (by the MC) were fantastic; however, the drinks at the bar were poorly made. We had mai tais that didn't taste good at all. We did appreciate the food and desserts, as well as our dinner portrait that the... More

Staying at the Sheraton at Black Rock made this luau an easy choice. I read several reviews that made this luau sound cheesy. Absolutely not the case. Check in was done quickly. FYI first come first served as far as picking out your seat. They started serving free drinks while you waited in line. The open bar was beer wine... More

You can't go to Hawaii without enjoying a Luau! Great selection of food and the show is amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!

The drinks were a bit weak, but if you asked the bartender , they would stiffen them up for you no problem. The fire dancer was really good !! Must have used a lot of Aloe Vera after his performance.

This gets 5 stars because of the affordable cocktail only option! It's $39 for adults and $22 for teens that way, vs paying a monstrous fee for buffet food for a family. And we all thoroughly enjoyed the show...the MC did a great job of balancing history with humor to make it all interesting and fun. The dancers were outstanding!... More

The location of the Kaanapali Sunset Luau is on the grounds of the Sheraton Maui close to the ocean. The food at the Luau was excellent and the best I have had at a Luau and plenty of it. The ladies received a beautiful fresh flower lei. The show was entertaining and the performers good. Drinks a little watered down!... More
