Default Maui Luau

We are ready to book a Luau at the Marriott in Maui. The advertising sounds positive but I would like to hear from anyone who's experience this Luau or any alternate suggestions.
Thanks,
Ashley

74 of us on the CruiseMates group cruise are doing the Old Lahiana Luau. Heard from a number of sources that it was the best in the islands.

Watched an episode of Emrol Lagasi the other day and it came from Old Lahina Luau and it looked fabulous.

Thanks a lot everyone, looks like we'll take a closer look at the old Lahaina Luau. I did see their site on the web, so will probably book that way.

Old Lahaina Luaua one of the best I've attended. Lots of Mai Tais to get you in the mood, food and entertainment well above others. Part I liked best was they did not get tourists up to make fools of themselves trying to do Tahitian dances like many of the other luaus I've attended. They have two types of seating, either at a standard picnic table or at a picnic table with the legs sawed off and you sit on the ground. Being somewhat older and more decrepit we opted for the standard seating but the authentic seating is right next to the stage. If you want to see what it looks like visit their web site, www.oldlahainaluau.com

We were just at the Wailea Outrigger hotel Luau 30 minutes from Lahaina and it was great!

We got back from a land based vacation to Maui in March. I did alot of research before going regarding luau's. Most all recommendations go to "Old La'hania Luau" It's the most authentic and has the best food. My husband and 2 teenage sons even enjoyed it!!! Request to sit on the ground for best view of the show. Call early for reservations. Aloha!!!

The Old La'haina Luau is simply the best in Hawaii. The dancers are the best, period. When they do the parade from Hawaii... it is the Old Lahaina Luau that they show. Seriously, it is like the difference between the major leagues and the minor leagues.

Enjoy your trip!

Went to Maui on a business trip last September. I had a wonderful time (even though it was still business), but the Old Lahaina Luau was the perfect end to a perfect trip. The show was wonderful. The dinner was delicious. There was an open bar complete with the best mai tai's you could ever hope for, and after a week of drinking nothing else this is saying a lot. The open bar is included in the price. There were non-pestering vendors with beautiful wares and Hula dancers giving free lessons about an hour before the show and dinner started. The guys who retrieved the Pig for the pit where funny, entertaing and informative about the cooking of the pig. If you go be sure to stand next to the pit area about 10 minutes before they start so you can get a place up front. Don't forget to take pictures.
