The performances were wonderful. Beautiful dances, music and storytelling. The all you can eat and drink food and bar was cheap, low quality and sub par. We certainly didn't eat or drink our money's worth, but we went for the performance and that was beautiful.

Our entire family had a great time! Our granddaughter, age 5 even went up on stage with other children and did the hula! Food was good, not great. For the experience, we thought it was worth the money.

No, I asked about a discount but none were available to my knowledge. Only discount was "buying tickets from COSTCO."

We got tickets at Costco there on Maui shortly before the day of the luau. Their tickets are discounted but no guarantee of availability.

not sure, but seemed out of place. I didn't know that when Polynesians came to the island they did acrobatics in the trees, lol
