At first it was pretty boring and I was about ready to leave. If you wait around long enough you finally get to eat and have a good show. I guess it was so you felt like you got your money’s worth of time there....More

We had a great experience at the Marriott Waikoloa Luaa dinner. The food was great, the drinks even better! The queue for seating starts at 4pm so be prepared to go early so you can get a good seat that is closer to the stage...More

Best Luau. Engaging for adults and children. Food was plentiful and so good. Entertainment was enjoyable - evening was really nice. Staff were so kind/accommodating to our grandchildren.

If you're going to travel to Hawaii, you really should experience a luau. The food isn't awesome (fairly standard buffet fare), but everyone should see the hula dances and the fire dance. We opted for the upgraded (and more expensive) VIP tickets, and - in...More

This is a buffet-style luau, where you eat all your courses before entertainment begins. I felt like the entertainment kind of dragged, with the male singer sometimes flat. We were there on Valentine's Day, so they offered one slow-dance song for couples, but it was...More

We've vacationed on the big Island with friends and hit this Luau both times. We've never been disappointed ! Wonderful food, dancers and musicians and they have arguably the best bartenders around ! Beautiful view and setting. Check this out !

Food and entertainment are very good. Less crowded on a week night. It's worth paying a few extra bucks for a front row table. Casual wear acceptable.
