Sugar Beach Resort
- What's Included
This resort has it all. The best location, beach and close drive to Lahaina and Kaanapali. The unit we stayed in was on the ground floor which was perfect. Steps to the beach. The beach was beautiful. Daily walk on the beach was our routine. Clean and calm in the morning. We will definitely come back to this resort. It's my home away from home except it's the best location.
This resort was all that I had bargained for! Perfect for families, the rooms were spacious and well kept. The pool and amenities were very nice, the grill was ocean-side and in working condition, and the beach was easy to access from the resort itself. There are gift shops right on the property, and there is also a place to rent water activity equipment, which was very convenient and made for a very fun vacation! Would definitely return for the beautiful beach and stunning views!
We had three different condos, all three was in first floor facing the garden. This was perfect with easy access too the pool, the beach and the BBQ witch we used almost every night. The location was very good but you will need a car to get around. This is maybe the most windy place on the island but still it's okay. The condo's was well equipped with all we needed, including washing machine and a dryer. We would definitely stay there next time as well.
Sugar Beach is a beautiful condo complex with wonderful amenities. We were in a great beachfront condo, #517, great bed, clean, a/c etc. The problem is the wind. This is quite possibly the windiest spot on the island of Maui. From 10am throughout the day, every day winds just howling well over 40 mph. It is said that this is seasonal, but I've experienced high winds in Hawaii at all seasons and this is the windiest spot. I reiterate that the complex is very nice, and the price is good. But be prepared to get blown away!
What a pleasant surprise from beginning to end. The wife and I decided to try the condo route for a change in hopes of saving some money. The challenge was finding a place that met our overly optimistic criteria yet had a price point that was considerably less than the nicer resorts. The booking process through Ali'i Resorts was a piece of cake and the people were great. They (Susan/Carnie) were very responsive and made sure everything went great from check-in to check-out. Here was our criteria that SB #518 delivered on...1. Ocean View: #1 on our list and the best part of our condo. We had ocean front with nothing but nicely landscaped grounds and the beach between us and the water. Waking up and having coffee on the Lanai while listening to the waves crashing in was amazing.2. Nice Pool Area: One of the challenges was finding a condo with a nice pool area that overlooked the ocean. The pool wasn't resort like but it was decent sized with a covered area if you want out of the sun. Good sized hot tub and right next to the beach/ocean.3. A/C: Had we not been there in July this might not have been as big of an issue but for us it was important.4. Nice looking room: #518 appears to be recently renovated with a beautiful small kitchen area. Fully stocked with everything you need to cook including many spices. The furniture was nice and comfortable. Good sized TV that we only turned on once. Very clean. Check out the pictures.5. Nice Beach area with easy access: This was really important. Most of the condos in Kihei are further south and across the street from the main thoroughfare; Kihei RD. So, even if you had an "ocean view" you still had to cross the street to get beach access. Sugar Beach is on the far north end of Kihei and one of the handful of condos that are literally right by the beach. It is the last 1 or 2 resorts you get to before heading toward Lahaina. We were surprised how nice the beach is and how quiet. All beaches are public in Maui so anyone can go to them. Because we were somewhat remote (10-15 min drive to main Kihei beaches) there were very few people there.So, what are the negatives? None really. The property is a little older but very well maintained. There is one small bar/restaurant (Dina's) onsite that we never went to but heard it was pretty good. The grounds are nicely maintained. We ate out 4 of the 7 nights we were there. Multiple BBQ grills right next to the pool and beach. We didn't take advantage of those but several people did. The nights we didn't go to a restaurant we stopped at the local market (Times) and got some fresh ahi poke and either ate that at the beach or on our lanai. Delicious by the way. Thanks for the suggestion Steve. FYI, this is a one bedroom/one bath unit meant for two people. Perfect for our trip.
