My grandchildren loved the presentation of "raising the pig" from the pit. They were enthralled by the entertainment and my grandson even joined dancers on stage for the hula! Watching the sunset made the whole experience even more delightful.

The location and setting of the luau is lovely at the Marriott with a great view to watch the sunset. We attended the luau in November 2016, much smaller scale in terms of attendance compared to the Hilton (which we attended in summer 2015). Drinks were included and were strong, line ups were not long (likely due to the small... More

This Luau is one of the best. The food is delicious and plentiful, with a great variety! It's in a beautiful spot where the sunsets are exquisite. The entertainment is absolutely wonderful. Very talented people. Audience members are included in the show as well! We had a ball! It's worth the price and the time! I highly recommend it!

Dancers, musicians and setting is excellent. Great presentation. Book early as this sells out quick.

We had a great time at the luau. We were given comp tickets from the hotel and were seated in the front section. Drinks were good, the appetizers were nice, and the food was pretty good for a luau. Not many kids options if you have a picky eater. A staff member was so nice and went to the restaurant... More

Marriott is undergoing renovation, so luau is housed on their rooftop, which is fine, but not exactly the beach setting that I envision a luau being held at. Hotel did a decent job of making it work, but it's just different looking at concrete instead of sand. Assume they'll be back to normal later in the year. Food was good.... More

This was my first luau and I LOVED IT! Expensive though, and while it did not exceed my expectations (if you didn't pay for the VIP you were stuck waiting to get your food) SHOW WAS AMAZING, but the food fell short of amazing.
