An excellent luau. We had been to the one at the sister hotel on Maui a few days before, which was very good, but this one was even better, probably because it was smaller, only around 100 people. The imu (pig) was very fresh and all the rest of the food was lovely. Drinks flowed freely, unfortunately I was driving, so I was limited to punch, but apparently the wine was quite acceptable. The entertainment was also excellent, similar to that which we have seen before, but sufficiently different to make it interesting. I have seen the fire dance at least 6 times before, but this one was definitely the best, I think the lad was from Samoa and he was fantastic.

The Luau was great, I'd do it again. The food was excellent, the musicians, singers, MC and dancers were top notch. And what a beautiful setting with the ocean in the background. D.C. from Canada

Small intimate Luau. Some of the others were too big and impersonal. This was perfect. The dancers were fantastic and the food was mouth watering. Will go again when we return

This was the best luau show I've ever seen. The hosts showed us the "unveiling" of the pig roasted in traditional island style and described the process. And it was delicious! The rest of the meal was pretty good too. I enjoyed the fresh fish and the chicken especially. The show was great! I really liked that they showed dance styles from various Polynesian cultures and the fire dancer at the end was spectacular. I heard later that he wins annual competitions in Honolulu every year. One thing to note was that I found that had we waited and booked through Expedia at our hotel, we would have gotten closer reserved seating. We had booked ahead through Viator to ensure we could go when we wanted to. I don't know if you can work out a similar priority seating arrangement. We had really good seats anyway and could see all the action. Got some great pictures, too.

Excellent show and enjoyed the location with the beach behind the stage. I was talked into this by family and thought it might be too crowded as on a prior experience but this seemed intimate enough to enjoy the talent. Thanks to all.

The food and show were very good. Checking in was sort of confussing and took a long time

For me this was the highlight of our short trip to the big island. The food was plentiful and good. The entertainment was well presented. The line to get in and to get the initial bar drinks were slow but once everyone was in it became much better. The line for the buffet moved quickly as they had six lines moving.
The MC was great. He explained the different types of dances. The dancers were fun to watch. The fire dance was outstanding.
