This was our 3rd choice luau since I got freaked out about not having a luau scheduled and booked this at the last minute. Unfortunately, OLL called less than 24 hours in advance to let us know they had seats, and I had already booked Grand Luau instead. UGH! Sign of things to come.
It rained, so the luau was moved indoors. I can't blame the luau for the weather, but I can blame them for the awful food/drink poisoning? First, we were a family of four, and I was the only one who had the lucky experience of my entire body ejecting what I consumed at the luau. The only thing I had that was different from my husband and two sons was that I had 2 glasses of white wine. Other than that, we had the same food. So, that pretty much sums up my takeaway.
Other than that, the show was 'meh.' I've been to other shows with excellent Hula dance troops, so the smaller troop of the Grand Luau was not as impressive.
It was also awkward when the servers left. Were we supposed to tip them? I thought that was already included in the total price? I wish someone had announced this or made it clear what the expectations were.
Grand Wailea looked amazing, though! We will definitely book this hotel next time we're in Maui.
