“Loved Sugar Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2006

Stayed from 19-26Aug in Room 214 (Oceanfront) for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and it was awesome. The condo was bright & cheery and extremely clean as well as equipped with everything you might need including 2 boogy boards that we used quite a bit. Sunsets were beautiful, beaches uncrowded and the weather was great. We're already planning to return next year for 2 weeks.

  • Liked — It was ocean/beach front

My husband and I spent our 15th anniversary at Sugar Beach from July 29th to August 4th and had a wonderful time! I had been checking other reviews for some time and was concerned about what we might find, but it was perfect! The room was clean (we stayed in unit 532) and had everything we could possibly need except food. Our room was oceanfront and the view was spectacular. It was very quiet and the beach was so uncrowded at times we were the only ones on it. We recommend it highly to anyone who wants to be away from the crowds and spend some quiet time together. It is so centrally located that it isn't far to drive to any other part of the island. We hope to go back some day and will definetly stay at Sugar Beach!

This was our second trip to Maui and we stayed at the Sugar Beach Resort both times. This year we stayed in the Mill Bldg. Unit #401. The decorating was exceptional, it had everything you would possibly need and more and it was extremely well maintained.
It is a 1 bedroom non smoking condo, queen bed with an ocean/garden view. Even though it was the last unit on the end by the road, I was not bothered by traffic. We really liked staying in Kihei, mainly because of its central location, its many restaurants, its conveniences and its feeling of a beach town. We usually headed out every morning to a enjoy a new area, but returned to our beach and pool after lunch. It was a wonderful 10 days.

  • Liked — nearness to the beach
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — always check out your before you check in

We booked our stay for 10 nights at this resort and moved on the third day because it was filthy. We stayed in unit 511...one shower did't work, lint also fell into this shower from the vent, urine on the walls, food splashes on the walls, dirty carpet, grimy woodwork on kitchen cabinets that stuck under your fingernails when opening, nothing to clean with...no supplies, no mop, no working vacuum. View of the ocean was great and hearing the ocean was wonderful. Views also overlooked the pool area, so if you don't want to see all that stuff, make sure you have a unit that doesn't overlook the pool. We booked through a small agency-type business and did not know we were actually booking through Condominium Rentals Hawaii. Be careful how you book your stay. We are being issued a refund for the nights we did not stay there and were offered to stay in other units managed by them. We elected to find our own place and ended up paying more for something we liked better.

Had a wonderful week at Sugar Beach 7/26 to 8/3/06. Our condo was clean and well equipped. It was nicely decorated. Called to get the A/C filter changed - they were there the next morning. No complaints about the complex, service, or our the condo company CRH. It was windy - but it was hot - so the windy was welcome. Kihei is centrally located - easy to Kapula, Lahaina and Wailea.
Sugar Beach has great grilling accomodations - the pool is wonderful and you are on the beach. Sunsets are great!
Would go back in a heartbeat!

We stayed at this unit and it was awesome. It was our first time to the complex and we were impressed. We were literally 30 feet from the beach!!! The people were friendly and it was centrally located from many things on the island. The unit was clean and the amenitites were great. We are defintiely going back.

  • Liked — The view....cleaniness

We loved our week stay at Sugar Beach. I know some have posted negatives about the rooms, but keep in mind they are all individually owned. If you pay less, expect less. We booked directly through ResortQuest/Maui Condo and paid for a 6th floor ( Penthouse ) 2 bedroom ocean front condo and we were not disappointed. If you book through individual unit owners, you may not get the maintenence you do with a professionally managed condo.

It was decorated with care, in a palm tree theme and even had a flat panel TV. The linens were lush with down comforter and down pillow tops. Stainless steel refrigerator and a Bosch dishwasher. The corner ocean front view to die for. And even had a high speed internet office/desk area.

Since we arrived late, 8:30 pm and had not eaten, we grabbed a few sandwiches at the liitle restaurant-bar on property and they were pretty good. We did our bulk shopping at the Safeway store and were very surprised at how busy they were for a saturday night. When I went back later in the week the shelves were practically empty. We figure they may restock on Saturday - thus the crowd.

There were strong trade winds in the afternoons but they died down once the sunset. There also was a shark incident mid-week. A man started screaming at kids to get out of the water and from my balcony I looked to where people were pointing and saw a slow moving fin very close to the shore. People ran out of the water and a policeman with monster binoculars showed up. A little later a coast guard on a wave runner showed up. I heard later that supposedly a grouping of 3 tiger sharks has been visiting the bay for the past 2 weeks. I only saw 1 fin, but that was enough for me. Needless to say, my daughter skipped the boogie board rental after that.

We have stayed in Kaanapali and Wailea before. We preferred the more local laid back atmosphere of Kihei. More centrally located too. And much more bang for your buck. We could not have rented a 2 bedroom condo that nice anywhere else on the island for that price. Would go back there in a heartbeat .
