"Great food, bad sun"
Hi! We recently got back from Maui on August 1st and had the most amazing time. We stayed at the Maui Westin Resort & Spa and attended the Luau on property. I was convinced to try this luau over the traditional luau due to the flame throwers.
I'll start with the positives - the food, service and beverages were amazing. The fruit was so fresh, delicious...everything was cooked perfectly. The lamb was delicious, the chicken, so tender. I have nothing but compliments for the chef. The service was great, every time we turned around our waitress was ready with another cocktail. She was extremely accommodating to our every request.
The negative - it was extremely hard to see the performers. The stage was set up facing the sun, so the majority of the time we were shielding our eyes. For the entire first hour plus we were only 1/2 watching the show due to the glaring sun. After the sun went down it was much easier to see the performance, however the acoustics were awful and we could barely hear the history and story of Hawaii....which was the entire draw of the luau.
The luau also felt somewhat commercial....too many tables selling cheap jewelry. If you are looking for a true, authentic luau, I would not attend the one at the Maui Westin.
"Great experience, though 1 major hiccup"
Well, you asked us to share our experience good or bad . . . so here goes. All of us (family of 14) went to the Westin Luau in April of 2011. It was wonderful entertainment, setting, scenery, company and food - except for my son who seemed to have gotten food poisoning at the Luau. Soon after we returned to the Villas he started feeling sick . . . and it continued to get worse as the night, the next day, and the next night went on, and on, and on. Poor guy wasn't able to leave his room for 3 solid days and nights (you can imagine why considering what happens to the body with food poisoning!) Fortunately no one else in our group got sick and we still had a few days left once he was feeling better and able to enjoy the remainder of his vacation. I felt so sorry for him. If I should be fortunate enough to win I'll give him my prize!
