Classic luau at the Marriott. Cost includes open bar! They do charge more to be a VIP with preferred seating. The cheesy thing is that you would expect everyone at a luau should get a lei, but you only get one if you're a VIP....More

Great Show! Enjoyed the opening yard games and Mai Tais. Good food and entertainment. If you're an eater, not much chance for seconds.

The food was simply amazing and even though I had heard a lot of people call it cheesy, it was anything but. The open bar was fabulous but I would recommend getting premium seating for the maximum enjoyment.

The Waikoloa Marriott is a first class place and they have put together a non-Oahu abnoxious, that is a technical term, Luau focused on customers and tradition. Anyone staying at this property should attend, especially if you have been to an annoying one in Oahu....More
