Ashley C.

For a beachfront luau in Maui, you can't beat Drums of the Pacific. The mai tai's are endless, and so is the buffet, while the hospitality makes you feel like you’re not just watching the show but a part of the show!

Very good luau. This is the 6th luau I have been to and my 2nd in Maui. It's one of the better ones but not the best. Lots of vegetarian options which was awesome the show seemed rushed and to much time spent with guest on stage. More fire dancing would be nice. Service was good I feel it was to many tables for one server. Overall good food, I like the seating setup, and I like how you where greater with a drink coming in the door.

Was a good show. Food and drink was good, weather was awesome, servers kept the drinks coming, drinks were watered down a little but its endless, so enjoy. Fast and organized effort to get people up and to the buffet. Show was well done, people pulled up on stage to dance enjoyed it as did the crowd. A bit of a wait before you get in and line control could be better, but all in all a nice way to end a day, or in our case the last night in Maui. This is not a multi million dollar show, but it is a well put together event, and considering they do it every night of the week, I believe, it is worth a look.

Waiting outside in the sun was not so great. A little shade would've done wonders for the crowd in line to enter. We were out there for quite a while and baking. Hosts were friendly. Food was above-average. Music was good. Fashion show was a neat touch. Storyline was enjoyable. Waiter was excellent. Appreciated him.

The Lu'au was a great survey of polynesian culture. We liked seeing examples of dance from New Zealand, Tahiti, and other islands as well as Hawaii.The food was delicious, the setting was beautiful, and the show was spectacular. We especially appreciated how often our server Patty K. came around to check on us. Thank you Hyatt for a great luau.
