Reviewed 3 March 2018 via mobile

Attended the Fia Fia Luau while staying at the Marriott Ko Olina. The luau occurs on Tuesdays. The one we attended appeared to be sold out. We purchased the premier tickets which provided excellent seating for the show and two drink tickets. The show was excellent, the food was plentiful and good. The entertainers were very personable and were available after the show for photographs. The ticket price ($125) was a bit steep but the skill level of the performers was high. Far superior to the luau we attended a few years ago while visiting Kona.

It was my parents birthday 60 & 64 so we thought what better way to celebrate in Hawaii with a luau. I’ve been to several luaus and this was ok. We choose this one because they wouldn’t have to travel far to go. It was a great show. The food was not that great in my opinion. However hey did have a kids bar of which my family ate off of. When the line ran out of food the guy would take the platter go refill it and bring back. I believe this could have been faster and make the line go quicker if they would have had two platters. Lay one out and have a back up when you take to refill. You got two drink refills. Coke, tea and water didn’t require a drink coupon. We upgraded to the second tier. You were able to skip the line when you arrived and you were greeted with a live leis. Now several people whom were staying at the hotel were able to see the show for free on the balconies or people stopped on the walkway and stayed. In my opinion 125.00 was too much for this but it was enjoyable.

We really enjoyed this luau. The food was good, and plentiful. The entertainment featured dances and music from various Pacific islands: Samoa, Tahiti, New Zealand, Hawaii, etc. Children were encouraged to particpate in the dancing. No forced audience participation. If it is in your budget, it is worthwhile to upgrade from a general admission. You receive better seating and extra drinks.

We stayed at Marriot Beach Vacation Villas in Ko Olina, where this luau is held, every Tuesday night. Family came out from Waikiki to see the luaa with us, so age range was from 17 years old to 53 years old. We all enjoyed this show immensely. They do a wonderful job of showcasing the Polynesian culture. The food was wonderful. We all liked the pork the best. They also serve beef, teriyaki chicken and mahi mahi. Everything was wonderful. The Master of Cermonies has a great sense of humor and does a great job of injecting levity in to the show. The time will fly by. You will love it. You receive two drinks with your dinner (Mai Tais, wine, beer or soda). The show also has several, world champion, fire dancers. Very impressive.

Everything is highly organised - seats are sold in three categories and that gives priority on entry and table allocation. After that it is all pretty much the same - food, drinks etc.
The first half hour is more low key - arts and crafts, making head bands, watching the sun set, watching a roasted pig being taken from the cooking stones etc. Then a buffet dinner - all you can eat with pork, beef, fish, chicken etc and desserts. Two drinks as part of the entry ticket.
Then the show. Examples of dancing from different Polynesian countries, a little too much audience involvement (honeymooners, children, those married more than 50 years called to the stage and feted). The finale was fire dancing which was very spectacular. The MC was very smooth but asked too often "is everyone having a good time?".
