First family trip to Maui. Having teenagers and little ones really all enjoy every single dance, stories/dances that took me back in times. The food was delicious. The performers did a awesome show. You can tell they are proud of their culture and the are proud to share. A MUST seen show.

What a lovely, family friendly Luau! The staff and Dancers were wonderful and we enjoyed learning more about the wonderful culture of the Pacific Islanders. The meal was really good. I loved that part of the show was on a stage with the ocean as a backdrop! Fantastic!!
