Kaija - the little girl from our table mates wAs adorable and entertaining. The performers and band were outstanding.
Cool Show! Just OK food. Family Photo never came by the table =(
Ashley_S, Mar 2023
The show at the Luau was great, the dancers were all entertaining and funny. The fire ending was cool, and you can tell they have a good time. They have an open bar, but the lines are long at the beginning. The food was just ok, nothing crazy great to write home about. My husband was sad as he thought the roasted pig was going to be soooo good, but it was bland and a bit dry. I tried to count, I think this Luau seats 300+ people, so it is just kind of expected to have just 'meh' food, even though the server was kind, quick, and helpful. The main thing I personally am really upset about that is keeping me at a 3-4 star review for this Luau was not the food, but was actually that we had a family photo taken with the photographer at sunset. He said he would come by the table to show us the photo and take payment, and he never came by. We were there for 2-3 hours after the photo was taken, so there was plenty of time for him to come show us. We went back by the table after the show to ask the photographer about our photo, and he was gone already. I took his business card, called, and emailed requesting if we could still receive our photo and pay him for it, and still haven't heard back over a week later. If there was a problem with the photo, at least talk to us about it and let us know, but it has been silence since. We weren't the only ones who didn't get our photo, there were multiple people who were also upset about their missing photos and grabbed business cards. That is very disappointing. Don't offer a photography service if you aren't going to follow through or at least communicate. That was the one night that my whole family was dressed up and ready take a family photo to have as a memory and souvenir from our trip, and we did not get what we were expecting. At least we didn't pay him already, as I would have been much more upset. Shame on you Blinq Photography. I would recommend the resort finds a better photographer that actually follows through with their guests and communicates. The Wailea Beach Resort is beautiful, and I would otherwise consider staying there for a future trip outside of the Luau.
Beautiful dinner show with the family
Diana_M, Mar 2023
Great food and drinks. Service was wonderful and we ate pre show, everything set up near the ocean. Sat with another family who we became friends with. Table was spacious and our view of the performance was wonderful. Now the performance was incredible and the dancers even got my teen boys on their feet. Highly recommend to do. The only bad point is the cost but our memories to last a lifetime

Dana_G, Mar 2023
Show was great! Venue was breathtaking on the beach! Lots of food (although some was just soso) service was great and they were very accomodating with food allergies! Would highly recommend!
The entertainment was awesome. Food and service was poor.
Ana_G, Mar 2023
The best part of the experience was the entertainment. Food was not worth the money we paid. The waitress was rushing us to finish our food.
My birthday celebration!

The food was outstanding and the entertainment was absolutely breathtaking. Highly Recommend this LuAU to all!

Amie_M, Feb 2023
Beautiful setting, family style dinner, pork was not actually cooked in the ground. Entertaining show.
Not worth the money
Shaheen_N, Feb 2023
We paid extra for premium seating and we’re seated in the middle - not worth it. In addition, I think the printed photo should be included in premium seating. You shouldn’t have to pay extra. And the food was awful- bland with no flavor. So that leaves entertainment- it was good but doesn’t justify the $295/person cost.
Excellent food, staff was...

Excellent food, staff was great - helpful and informative. The show was excellent and the music was great.
Not worth the price
Sid_B, Feb 2023
I would definitely not recommend this Luau. For the price we paid it was a terrible experience. Especially disappointed with the food. Where was the Luau pig? That should have been the main event of the meal and instead we had teriyaki chicken. Also, the Luau event itself was more educational vs entertainment.

Amazing Luau
Jesse_L, Feb 2023
It is a beautiful experience, location was amazing, while watching the luau you can also enjoy the sunset! If you are thinking in a luau you won’t go wrong picking this one for you and family! 🌺 The food was amazing, the little activities they have for all the guest are super nice!!!!! The dancers and music were also amazing too!!!! I can give them 100 starts
Very enjoyable
James_H, Feb 2023
We had the premium seating which I believe was well worth it. The dancers were fantastic. The MC told a story throughout the program. The view is fantastic as was the food. If there is a downside, we came from the Lahaina area and there weren't any good directions about how to get there. We never found the valet parking that was listed on our ticket but it was not necessary.
Great time!
Kathy_M, Feb 2023
