La vue est superbe!
Complexe très tranquille, condo propre. La vie du balcon est superbe et c'est merveilleux pour le café du matin ou l'apéro du soir!
Plage parfaite pour longues marches ou jogging!
Seul point à améliorer: la lave vaisselle ne fonctionnait pas bien.
Beautifully remodeled unit in a great location
I have stayed in several dozen condos on Maui, and this is one of the nicest units I have seen. New owners remodeled it, and the interior is beautiful. The service from Alii Resorts is the best I have experienced from any property manager. The stay was very comfortable and easy.
I love the Sugar Beach location. It is centrally located, so a short drive to most places of interest, and you can walk out the door and walk literally for miles on the beach right in front.
Wonderful Condo with AMAZING VIEWS
My spouse and I stayed at Sugar Beach #418 for 8 days -- on day 8, we were extremely SAD to have to leave. The condo is centrally located on the island, which is wonderful if you want to explore the beautiful island of Maui. It was fully equipped with everything we could need throughout the condo, and ESPECIALLY in the kitchen; the sofa bed must have been replaced since prior reviews, because it was VERY COMFORTABLE (and I loved the tropical design). We spent hours and hours on the lanai -- you cannot beat the view!! The BBQ area and the hot tub are both great social settings, and we met many great people. We have already scheduled another trip for Sugar Beach #418 in April ... cannot wait to go back!
Some Rough Edges but Enjoyable
My wife and I rented this unit for our honeymoon. First, the positives. 1. If you don't want the busy resort place, this is a good place. It's out of the way and quiet. 2. Someone from the rental agency met us when we arrived and went through things with us and answered any questions we had. 3. The pool is very nice. Didn't check out the hot tub or sauna. 4. You are right on the beach. The sun sets over the right corner of the lanai so you had to strain a little but could see it and it was beautiful. 5. The front desk people were very friendly and the front office was easy to find. 6. There were plenty of parking spots, beach chairs, and grills available. Never were they all being used at the same time.
The negatives- 1. The couch seemed to have a slope from back to front. It was a bit uncomfortable to sit on. Maybe the bed wasn't put back in correctly. We didn't investigate. 2. We used the dishwasher twice. Both times the soap did not dispense during the washing. We contacted the rental agency about this on the last day of our stay. 3. The dryer didn't seem to work correctly when we tried the automatic dry settings. It would shut off shortly after starting. We had to do a timed dry. Perhaps it was human error but we did contact the rental agency about this as well. 4. The screen doors came off track regularly. They may just need some greasing of the tracks but it was frustrating to constantly fix. 5. The lanai furniture was basic and did have some rust on them. However, I wasn't concerned with this that much. After all, I'm sitting ocean side looking out at a sunset.
The resort does have some age to it but the room decor has been updated and is charming. There were two coolers and two beach chairs provided as well as some board games and books to read.
A previous reviewer seemed upset about having a code for the pool and the pool restroom. During our stay, it was a 3 digit code for the pool and a 4 digit code for the restroom. It wasn't hard to remember.
Honestly, this room was not our first choice but we were pleased overall and would stay here again.
Mahalo for being our guest and taking the time to share with us about your recent stay. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, and we look forward to hosting you again in the future. Since your stay, we have had professionals inspect the items you mentioned to ensure they are in proper working order for the next guest. We have also passed your comments regarding the furniture on to the owner and will work with them to upgrade. Don't forget to ask about your Return Guest Discount when you are ready to return to Maui.

Uncomfortable, old, economy resort convieniently located in Kihei (South) Maui
I'm writing this review on day 21 of a 21 day stay in Maui. We booked Sugar Beach Condos for 10 nights, and left after 8. I would never stay in this room, or at this resort ever again. Sugar Beach resort was probabaly really cool in 1978, when the resort was built. The resort itself is seriously outdated and uncomfortable. The resort was understaffed and it was difficult to locate the main office. The check-in instructions were overly complicated and silly. You had to use a code pad to enter and exit the swimming pool...and use a different, longer, code to use the pool bathroom. Overall, the pool and hottub were nice...but the furniture and BBQ grills were old, dirty and uncomfortable. We found ourselves pulling chairs over to the grass to face the ocean shore, rather than look at the the pool and resort itself. The unit was dirty and old. How it represents in the photos does not fit real life. It failed on all 3 essential fronts...the lanai furniture was awful - old, rusty and uncomfortable. The bed was a dealbreaker. Awful, awful and so awful. We had to take the foam mattress out of the sofa bed and pile it on top of the bed to be able to sleep halfway decently. This, of course, required a booster chair to get into the bed - now that it was 4 feet tall. The kitchen was dirty and old and poorly equipped. Sometimes you don't have a good "feeling" about a place...and this condo was one of those places. The long stretch of beach in front of the condo was nice...but often too rough or windy to swim/snorkel. Kihei itself was also pretty run down and old...we found ourselves going on 5, 6 and 7 hour long outings just to not be in the condo or at the resort, or in the town (it's ridiculously "normally" windy here). We ended up leaving 2 days early just to stay somewhere different. Overall, this stay was a disappointment. If you are looking for economy lodging in a sort of busy area near the 2 main highways...this might suit you really well.
We are sorry to hear that your time on the island was not ideal. If you had taken some time to express your concerns to us, we would have been more than happy to work with you to make things more comfortable. We wish you all the best of luck on future travels.
