We paid a few dollars more to get priority seating, which meant we were seated in front of the Polynesian entertainment. We each also received lovely flower leis and a gift box of macadamias. It was fun to see the opening of the imu, where...More

This is a huge ripoff. Save you $100 per person for a very nice dinner at a great restaurant. This is bad conference food, indifferent service and they are selling you everything. The “open bar” is one grumpy lady serving a line of 50 people....More

After reviewing between the Hilton Luau where we stayed at the Hilton Vacation Club and the Marriott one, we picked the Marriott one because it was less expensive. The food was good, the show was grand; the sunset view was spectacular, I highly recommend it.

You shouldn't visit Hawaii without attending at least one Luau. We chose the Marriott, close to our location at Mauna Lani. Overall it was a really fun experience. The food was pretty good (especially considering the size of the event), the scenery was stunning, and...More

One other thing. You pick your ticket up in the lobby by the coffee shop. They have a desk set up there. Grab your ticket and head straight to the gate. There are signs marking the way but it's to the right of the pool area.
