I should have known the over-priced luau was a rip off. Way too crowded. One beverage per person . Seriously for $114?? Stand in line for 45 minutes 30 minutes after opening for absolutely nothing. The luau on Maui was 100% better, no waiting, not...More

Wonderful location, service and food. The entertainment was wonderful even if it was not altogether traditional. The fireworks made a great end to the week.

Show was great. Food was decent. Being on top of parking garage makes it a little less authentic. Probably not a "every time we visit " activity but we got our money's worth.

Rooftop Luau was brilliantly presented. The pageantry, dances, wardrobes, story-telling was all wonderful. The buffet had plenty of variety and the food was fair-to-good. The performers though were a complete joy to watch and our girls sat mesmerized by the talent on display. The waitstaff...More

The luau is not held on the rooftop on Fridays. Instead, there is something held on the lawn adjacent to the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon. Not sure about the view from there.

The tickets that you are referring to could be the one that are given as an incentive to view the Hilton Grand Vacation. This would be your choice and could be what you have heard about.
