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!

Was fun. Food was good and performance was nice. Seemed more of a stage production than authentic but enjoyable for sure.

The location was beautiful, the staff was on point and friendly, the show was amazing. You could even watch the sunset. We had great seats in general admission. Not worth spending the extra money for VIP seating.

I felt the show could have been condensed and the entertainment value increased if the narration between performances was drastically reduced or cut out. I found that aspect boring. They definitely kept the drinks flowing though!
