Diner Reviews
  • "Great people great dancers, and the fire dance was the best. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Great experience! I booked online and received the premium package upgrade. Our seats were closest you could get to the stage and center, the service was excellent. Mai Tais and Lava Flos were delicious!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Booked this last minute online, and it exceeded our expectations, particularly since it was much more reasonably priced than many other luaus. Good food & drinks, including a kids' buffet, and a really fun show! Loved that we could take the beach walk from Honua Kai resort where we were staying."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Nice food and dancing, very close to the beach. Dancers were good, the kids like the fire dancing"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "this was the third thing I booked for our trip to maui, after airfare/hotel and then a jeep. we got the vip seating, and the assigned seating chart is placed upon seniority. we were right in front of the stage, and had priority into the facility with allowed us about twenty minutes before the crowd, and a few tiki drinks! you also get priority into the buffet line, which was awesome as well! great selection of foods for all age groups. I heard another adult say that they chicken strips/chunks for the keiki were some of the best he had ever had. a must for a few hours of enjoyment when on maui. the group is very interactive and gives a basic over view of the different island lands of Polynesia."

  • "Had a great time and so much fun. Would recommend to all visitors to experience the luau . great food-drinks and very entertaining for all ages."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The show was excellent and we were treated very well. The food however was only average. Less choices and better prepared would be an improvement. Overall we had a great evening. Thanx"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "The show is truly great: great dancers, variety of dances, good musicians, even dancing with fire. Worth the Luau. However, unfortunately, the food is really lousy...."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "This luau was amazing! The hostess was great, and the performers were great. The fire dance was also a wonderful addition! We will definitely go back."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "It was the best luau we have ever gone to and this was our 3rd on...Thanks"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The luau was great the dancers and fire show was impressive and entertaining. The pig served at dinner was amazing while the other food was basic buffet food. We did the upgraded package through round table and sat center of the stage first row.."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "The Luau was a perfect way to end our vacation in Hawaii. The show touched on a number of the Polynesian Islands which made an influence on the islands of Hawaii. Very professional. The food was also excellent. I would highly recommend this event. We paid a little more for the seating but it was well worth it as we had front row seats by the stage, unlimited drinks of all kinds, beautiful flower leis, tiki glasses to take home and first access to the buffet. A beautiful Maui sunset was a bonus!"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "Great for families with children. We've been to luaus before but none compare to this one. The entertainers were high quality, the food was so good that our children not only tried the "grown up" food, but ended up choosing that over the "kids" food! Overall very pleased and we'd highly recommend the Royal Lahaina Luau."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Lots of fun. Show really great! Food buffet mediocre. I think we paid too much as we were right beside the stage, free leis and souvenir tiki cups. Drinks included but slightly weak. Service good and friendly.nice Hawaiian experience."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "The Luau was excellent very good food and entertainment. The history of Hawaii was very interesting and loved the costumes. Everyone was very nice and we had a wonderful time. We will come again soon."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Middle-class family of 3 paid nearly $300 to experience our first (and probably "only") Luau. The buffet contained food that well, other than the pork (which was dry and must have been re-heated from an early day as it was available within minutes of watching seeing the pig removed from the oven and carried off), & rice ...Oh yes, the "food" (with the exception of the pork & rice) was nearly inedible! The so called "steak" was full of gristle so I gave up trying to eat it after my second fork-full. Add to this, the fact that we had been informed by the greeters, that the Luau would run end at around 8:15 let out at 7:30!? We later learned that this was due to the fact that it had not sold out? Would love a refund please! Never again!"

  • "Very fun and entertaining! Highly recommend. It was a blast being invited on-stage as a part of the coconut demonstration. A great way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary."

  • "The Luau was fun and a good time. Food was tasty and plentiful. Lots of drinks which is great."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "My husband and I had a blast at the Royal Lahaina Luau! Everything about it was fun. The dancers were awesome and very entertaining. It was exactly what I was hoping for. It will be on my to do list every time I visit Maui. I went to another luau while I was there and I don't have any complaints about it but the Royal Lahaina was my favorite! Mahalo to everyone at the luau...loved it!"
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "This Luau was so amazing. The service was impeccable. It was truly the highlight of our entire Hawaiian vacation! Great food and a great show!"
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "This is the best luau I have been to. The food was just OK, but the entertainment was worth the price of admission. We booked through Open Table and we had the best seats in the house. The couple across from us had also booked through Open Table."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Enjoyab;e Luau. Food was very good for buffet type food. Show was fun and entertaining. Service was excellent."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "My reason for a four star rating is not because the food is gourmet but for the simple reason these guys put on an entertaining show. We met some really awesome folks that made for good conversation. The atmosphere was that of being at a large backyard BBQ wedding. One of the best fire dancers I have ever witness, the crowd was in awe and the show was educational, traditional and well worth the price of admission."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "My husband and 19 year old son said the luau was one of their favorite things to do in Maui. The dancers loved what their culture and dancing and it showed. The pork was amazingly tender. A lot of fun. Mahalo."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "The show/entertainment was fantastic, setting was great but the food was so so."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "Buffet food for 150 people pretty hard to get a good grade, it was reasonably good and wholesome. The show was well done and interesting, the MC was a bit lame and forced. The dancers excellent. The free wine was a C grade at best and the red wine was warm, and there were quite a few mosquitoes. If you have not been to a luau you should go but don't expect dining."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "We took a group of 10 to see this show. Recommend the advanced seating and front stage table. For a buffet, food was quite good. Entertainment was very good. Live band and dancers quite talented. Would highly recommend for a Luau experience."
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "Got rained out. Started out real well. Half way through dinner a down pour, not anyone's fault. We were given a refund unable to reschedule flying out the next day."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "We are a family of 19, 10 children, 9 adults. We had a wonderful time at the Luau, the service was great, the food delicious, especially the fish. The entertainment was fantastic, even the little kiddies enjoyed it. It was a great way to have a family dinner on our vacation that was entertaining and fun for everyone."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We booked this Luau for our Thanksgiving dinner while in Maui. Since we were skipping the family Turkey, we opted to make it memorable. Well, there was a turkey choice at the buffet...and to our surprise, even pumpkin pie at the dessert table. Definitely not a typical Thanksgiving. Good entertainment, definitely recommend getting the VIP tickets - it is buffet, and you get seats up front and first in line perks. Don't miss the opportunity to take a photo of the sunset."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "The Luau experience here was awesome. Get the VIP Seating so you will be right up front for the show. The buffet was ok with plenty of food and choices. Food was good, buffet type of fare. Entertainment part was the best part of the whole affair. Dancers and fire guy were awesome. It is a must do on a trip to Maui"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Excellent experience for a first time luau. All around Polynesian review. Great service."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "We loved the food, and the luau was good for the most part. Because it was near Xmas, the organizers obviously thought they needed carols, hats, etc., but we'd have preferred more emphasis on the traditional luau. And the less of the host, the better. The dancers were outstanding, especially the fire dancers at the end."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "My husband and I attended the luau at the Royal Lahaina Resort last week and had a great time! The food was delicious, good drink selection (he's usually a beer-only guy but he actually had some frozen drinks!). Perfect location to watch a beautiful sunset. Every staff member we encountered was extremely friendly and seemed happy to be there."

  • "The show was pretty good and moved pretty quickly. The food however was just ok."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "I took my husband and 2 children and they had a great time. We loved learning about the culture and the host was entertaining and very funny. The food was amazing and we booked online, so we recieved 2 complimeentary tiki glasses and were able to get bottomless premium beverages. Everyone was so hospitable. We would definitely go back again!"
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "This was my first trip to Maui and my first luau. It was awesome! We had the best seats in the house, the show was amazing, and the fastest 3 hours I've ever experienced. I highly recommend it!"
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "As guests of the Royal Lahaina Resort, with a baby and a desire to walk to and from a Luau, this was a great option. The performance was average, not nearly as amazing as the Old Lahaina Luau, but plenty of fun since we'd seen that one last time we were on Maui, and our child would be entertained regardless. The food was really good, even better I think than the Old Lahaina Luau, especially the roast pig, super moist and well seasoned. We did the internet VIP package, and the drinks in the tiki mugs were suitably strong, not "watered down", so I enjoyed that as well! VIP online reservation, with priority seating, orchid leie, & tiki mugs was a good value and made up to a good degree for the smaller scale performance, along with easy access."
    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "We had a nice time. I would not recommend to upgrade, because we did not get to eat first like they said we would and we only got one drink in the mug we got, because as soon as we got done eating the show started and we didn't want to miss any of it to get another drink. So just get the package as anyone else and you will have a great experience. It was a waste of the extra money we spent just for the flower lei and drink. The show was awesome. You have a great dance group and band!!!!!"
