Dirty and unclean unit

  • 2 of 5

We loved the view, the property and the island!

We would definitely come back to Sugar Beach Resort. What we did not like about this unit was the bedding. The comforter was very dirty with all kinds of stains. Four days into our stay we went to wash the sheets and discovered that the mattress pad was dirty with urine. A lot of urine. Fortunately there was a brand new mattress pad and brand new comforter in the closet that we opened up and put on the bed. The unit was very dirty overall. My sister stayed in a beautiful unit there that was immaculant in cleanliness and modern decor. It was a well kept unit. I wish I could give my unit 5 stars but because of the unit condition I cannot. I did not love staying in this unit even though it is showing that I did.

Owner's Response: We are so very sorry this happened and we consider this to be completely unacceptable. We pay a professional service to clean our condo thoroughly prior to the arrival of each guest and are horrified you had to deal with this. We encourage our guests to reach out to us with any concerns during their stay so we can rectify them immediately. This is the first we have heard of this and contacted our cleaner immediately to ensure that this does not happen again. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and do hope you will consider staying with us in the future.

Perfect ocean front condo

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay! The oceanfront views are stunning and you're right on the longest stretch of beach in Maui. The room had everything we needed to have a great trip. house cleaning leaves you a starter package of bar soap, dish soap, paper towels, and laundry and dishwasher pods. Even though we brought our own, the room even had an audio cd of the road to Hana which I would highly suggest doing while you're there. The key tag to the grocery store was a nice touch as we stocked up on food to cook in the room as well as grill on the beach with the resorts propane grills. We were just a short drive from Lahaina, as well as turtle town , big beach and the black sand beach. All in all we felt like our condo was in the perfect location to take a short drive anywhere to see amazing beaches and views. Thank you for renting us your beautiful home and making it a great experience for us.

It was really great.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone at Sugar Beach was friendly and helpful. The beach in front of the condo was narrow but never crowded. Our condo was direct ocean front right on the beach.

Like having your own personal beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was excellent! It was the small things that set this apart from others. You don't need one thing when you arrive, they leave you a starter kit for all your needs. The resort was amazing, they have everything you need and will also schedule your excursions, ask for Tina, she has such passion for her job. This is a nice quiet place with a family atmosphere, you will not be disappointed, the penthouse was great and had privacy too. The pocket doors allowed for someone to take a nap while someone else watches TV. I would rent the place again, it was worth every penny.

Great beach view!

  • 4 of 5

Needs some paint touch ups and better stocks of sheets and updating but bed comfortable, toaster needs replacing, outlet and plugs have mostly loose connections so need fixing but loved the quiet location and pool area and top floor view!

A Great Beachfront Value, Not Perfect

  • 4 of 5

View: A. Can see islands. Shore fish jumping out of the water. Canoes. Paddle boarders. Great people watching of beach walkers.

Noise: A- (waves and small children playing below us). Cute little girls signaled sunset by blowing in conch shells. Very cool..

Size: A- (613 sf. Big enough for two.)

Lanai: B. (Smallish. Cozy with 4.)

Price: A. (Took advantage of the shoulder season rates)

Beach: A. Hard sandy beach. No rocks. Families with small children played in the surf and built sandcastle. About ten steps away. Nice walking beach.

Condo: C-. Needs new cabinets. Appliances are dated but functional. Internet speed is superior. Bed is top notch (although it is difficult for shorter people to get in and out.). TV is newer. Furniture is functional.

Resort: B+. Built in the late '70s, this is well maintained. Pool is pretty good. Lounge area is good enough, nothing special. Supporting reception area and sandwich shop could be refreshed. Grills are functional.

Conclusion: You get what you pay for. And we did. And we will again and again.
