We stayed in Unit #427. It was wonderful. The view is simply incredible. We swam everyday in the ocean and/or the pool. The unit itself was very well maintained and well stocked with everything we needed and more. We will definately be back to Sugar Beach Resort.

We stayed nights at the Unit # 129. The Unit: The ground floor -1 bedroom unit. Although sleeps 4, we would recommend this unit for 2. ( you could have 4 in the unit, however, it gets crowded when you have to unfold the sofa and the air matress) The unit a well stocked kitchen with all the silverware and...

This is a great spot. The grounds, the grill area and the pool are meticulously kept. It's 10 steps (literally) to the ocean. And the panoramic views from the units are hard to beat. We stayed in unit 514 and it is a delightful condo: 2 bedrooms, a very nice kitchen and a killer double-width outdoor terrace (end units on...

This was my first time to Maui. We traveled to the island for a wedding. This complex was amazing! The room on the 6th floor overlooking the ocean was breath taking. It was very clean, maintained and well kept. The location was perfect for traveling and sight seeing on the the island. The kitchen and Condo was very well stocked....

We stayed here for 4 nights. I have been to Maui before and if you are considering staying on the west side near Lahaina, Sugar Beach is in a much better location because you are in the middle of the island. Lahaina is nice until about 10am when it becomes swarmed with tourists so I think the Kihei area is...

I am glad you enjoyed the location of the Sugar Beach Resort! The oceanfront rooms really are special, as you can hear the waves crashing on the beach below you. I am not sure if the condo you stayed in was one of the condos we manage (as we do work with Hotels.com), but I will take a look at...

I stayed two nights. I had the opportunity to check out the plantation building, both condos 230 and 324. I ended up choosing 324 due to better views. 230 had boogie boards available for use, though. The resort is set away from Kihei and if you're looking for things to do within walking distance, there's nothing. The pool is good,...

Thank you for your kind review of the Sugar Beach Resort. We manage both condos that you viewed and I am glad you found the views, amenities, grounds, and pool a great fit.

Short version: the Condo #505 is great, clean, well equipped. The property is very well located and is good standing. We did not see any urgent need for updates as other reviewers are pointing out.

This is an old complex in need of serious updating. I love the convenience of location, but was highly disappointed with the rooms. We had mold in the living rooms and the wall papered 1980 look is not what we expected. The beach is nice and never crowded, the pool area is clean and enjoyable, the BBQ area is horrible...

Great place. Stayed in unit #115 and it was fantastic. Updated, clean, and spacious. The beach was 20 feet from the lanai and the water was fabulous. Quiet property. Perfect getaway. Only downside is the distance from downtown Kihei, but wasn't prohibitive. Will definitely return and hopefully stay here again. Highly recommend.

We managed to get a "penthouse" condo, a one-bedroom unit on the top floor, at about $150/night; this rate "includes" an Alamo rental car on which more later. I agree with most of the other reviews: these are all older places furnished by their owners, so the décor will vary a lot. Ours smelled a bit sweaty, and the queen...
