Our overall experience was great despite very windy conditions and a chill that required jackets or sweaters, which I didn't have. We were worried about rain but it stayed dry. We arrived early to check in. but there was already a long line that moved quickly. We took seats at a table on the side and about halfway back. The couple next to us said they chose the table because they were told it would be the first in line for food. It was. The food, especially the Kailua pork, and drinks were great. My wife had hoped for a pina colada. It wasn't an option. She chose wine instead. The entertainment was outstanding. We were concerned about the fire dancer in the wind, but he performed with no problem. We have been to luaus right on the beach, which we prefer. This one isn't, but I would definitely come back again.

The food and entertainment were amazing. Unfortunately, the luau was held inside because of forecasted rain, although it turned out to be a lovely evening. It is understandable that the location needs to be determined earlier in the day, so NO PROBLEM. There was one major disappointment, and that was, the dessert was put away prior to the end of the entertainment. We were NOT at the last table to be dismissed to go through the dinner buffet, and as we made our way to the buffet we had an opportunity to see all the various offerings. They looked delightful. EVERYONE at our table was still eating dinner when the lights went out and the show began. We all commented how hard it was to see our food. Eventually we got done eating and continued to enjoy the excellent dancing and South Pacific lore. Our server picked up our plates during the show and i specifically asked him if there was silverware by the deserts, to which he replied that there was. However, there was no intermission, the room was completely dark and when the show came to an end, all of the desserts were gone. We were so ready to try them and EVERY SINGLE DESSERT was gone! We paid $112.50 each and feel that the Hyatt could have either had an intermission or walked around with dessert platters. So disappointing.

A most enjoyable evening of good fresh buffet food, ample drinks, good service and entertainment that was enjoyable and with pockets of interactive opportunity. The balance of the show to background music was excellent throughout the evening. Good value.

Touristy experience as you’d expect. Entertainment was cheesy but interactive. Not too commercial—only advertised a few items on sale (I’ve heard of much worse at other luaus). Food: delicious meats, sides were fine. Dessert was also fine. It was good to do once, but wouldn’t do it again. It’s not worth the $$ to do twice, but gave us something to do for a few hours on our last night! I would recommend showing up before 5pm if you want to pick your seats. The waiting line gets long very quickly. We showed up at 4:45pm and already an impressive number of people. It gets chilly at night, so women bring a light jacket. It ended at 8pm.
