While the food was bland and was taken away quickly, the view was an amazing backdrop to a wonderful show! The drinks were strong and easy to obtain, as the crowd was managed very efficiently. We enjoyed practicing a bit of hula. Would have loved more arts/crafts to browse before dinner.

Dear B B,

Thank you for choosing Te Au Moana Luau for your luau experience. We are glad you enjoyed the ocean views and the beautiful Maui sky, but we are sad to read that you did not like our food. We do our best to deliver great food to accompany our performances, and your comments will be shared with our Chef. It was our pleasure entertaining you.

This is a great Luau for young and old. The show was top notch from start to finish. The food was plentiful and everything was tasty and delicious. We were in the first row center stage. I would highly recommend the preferred seating because you are so close , you eat first and you get a great view of the sunset. Check in is at 4:30 but I would get in line at 3:45. The Marriott resort is beautifull and the show went till almost 8:00 pm. All of the staff were happy and always willing to help you out. My wife and I would highly recommend this show and it is well worth the money.

We had a wonderful time at this Luau. The ocean background was so beautiful and the size of the Luau was about right: not too big and not too small. The food was excellent with plenty of salads, fish, teriyaki steak, chicken, and pulled pork. The tropical drink was also tasty. The performance of the dancers was also outstanding. Fire dancers and audience participation added to the fun. Book early because the spaces fill up quickly.

The food was delicious and perfectly cooked. The drinks were so good. Fantastic company, I think our table won hands down for coolest people from Canada, California and Chicago. Amazing show from the host, musicians, and dancers. It was worth the wait in the sun.
