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!

We prefer the Hyatt luau over the Westin luau - it was more interactive for the audience, and kids (and adults) can get on stage and learn to hula. We have seen this show twice. Food is great and drinks are plentiful.

Second time in two years we have attended Drums of the Pacific luau at the Hyatt Regency Maui, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The show has been updated/changed quite a bit so we didn't feel like it was a rehash at all. The food was great and drinks were liberal and potent. Wait staff was super attentive and friendly. Recommend the upgrade to VIP seating for best views, early entry and first to dine. They had a meet/greet after the show with dancers for photo ops as well.

I wanted to love this night. It was a huge let down. Now it wasn't all terrible. The last show of the night was great. The fire show was great. The food was awful. Just awful. The Imu pork was dry and had no flavor. We couldn't even choke it down. The fish was ok. I literally could've gotten better food at the Golden Corral. The drinks were equally terrible. Watered down. We took an Uber here thinking we'd need to not drive. Wrong. No amount of drinking could help this place out. So we wasted another $50on Uber. All together we spent over $300 on this night. If this was a $100 or less for both of us maybe it would be worth it. The entire experience was disorganized. From the get go...upon arriving at the Hyatt there were no signs pointing us in the direction of The Lu'au. We had to wander aimlessly until someone noticed we looked lost. Finally found the spot and were "greeted" by unfriendly annoyed staff. We were herded into the 'preferred' line which we'd paid extra for. The line wrapped around the building into the hot sun. Nothing preferred about it. We didn't have a good view of the stage. Wasted money in every possible way. I will probably never do another Lu'au again. Not worth the money. Learn from our experience and go to Mamas Fish House instead.

Very enjoyable evening. The food was good - ample proportions and nice variety. The entertainment was fantastic. The only concern was the price. Ouch. It's a good thing my wife booked this otherwise I would've nixed it. As much as I liked it, It's probably going to be a once a decade type of outing for us. Too bad. If the price were more reasonable we would most likely come back every year.

The ads were good so we decided to give it a try. The food was subpar, the show was not good and very hard to see although we purchased premium seats in order to be in the "2 front rows". The 2 front rows are actually 2 very long tables so even when you're still in the 2nd table, there are almost 30 people in front of you and it's close to impossible to see anything. I would not go back.
