Overall a pleasant stay - the condo was really, and I mean really really clean. Bed was comfortable and just yards from the sands. Id stay there again, but what spoilt it was the Management by Vacasa - the kitchen lacked a sieve to drain rice/noodles and their manager penny pinching "you have one" and "Sorry, we wont give you one" - : no we didn't we had a large colander with holes that would sink the Bismark. Also lacking a Pizza cutter, and the normal mix of various varieties of plates and glassware - the largest cooking pan remained where it laid under the stove as it had less "non stick" left than used cellotape - The screen doors, typical of Sugar beach were difficult to open as the tracks were buckled and there were holes in parts so critters could play with our swatting hands, These are minor irks, but come on chaps sort out your customer service - please dont say we didnt know about this...

Pros; right on the beach, fabulous pool with hot tub, plenty of grills to cook on. The management company helped us check in early which was fabulous. Views from the lanai are gorgeous. The location of the condos is pretty good too, with a car you can easily get to a grocery store or go into town. Cons; sorry but this is going to be a much longer list. Unit 522 needs some basic care and attention. In the entry way, there is a rip in the wallpaper that’s been “repaired” with packing tape, although it’s clear there is still a rip. There’s chipped paint on all the walls, corners, and some odd things happening with the ceiling paint. All basics that can easily be updated. The bathroom has pocket doors which is great for saving space but it’s a master-suite which means if you’re sharing the space with another couple, you better be really close with them. The lighting above the bathroom sink is INTENSE and puts off a ton of heat which doesn’t seem right. The countertop material has peeled almost completely off on the right hand side, I’m not sure why someone hasn’t glued it down. The toilet works, but, has obviously been repaired with a handle that doesn’t quit for because if you don’t push it all the way up, the toilet runs constantly. Even then sometimes it needs to be jiggled to get it to stop. As for the master bedroom, there’s quite a bit of space there which good lamps, a closet, and dresser. The reason there is a ton of space is because it is NOT a queen bed, it’s a full. Queen beds are 5ft across as a standard. As a 5ft tall person, the bed was not as wide as my height, laying across it there was at least 6in of my body hanging off. My partner and I are not large people but we had a hard time sleeping together in that bed. The mattress topper is very comfy though. The sofa is not the same as in the pictures but does have an actual queen sofa, which we ended up sleeping in. The living room furniture is not the same as the picture, there’s a couch and one chair. There’s a round glass dining room table with four chairs and a TV. The lanai also has a round glass table and four chairs but there are no cushions like in the pictures. In addition, while there were two beach towels (again hard if you’re trying to share the space with 4 people), there was only a soft cooler. No beach umbrellas or chairs and the resort does not provide them. Overall, this unit will most likely keep getting rented because of the fabulous location, but it would benefit greatly from a little TLC.

We wanted a ground level spot and stayed in unit #113 booked through VRBO. The views and grounds of the resort are spectacular. The pool area was nice enough. The beach was nice and sandy and great for long walks (Wear water shoes if swimming). The AC in our unit only worked for 1 day of our 3 days there. We informed the front desk after the first day and when we came back from being out it was working. But it quit working again the next day. As many of stated, these are older units so we weren't expecting everything to be perfect. Overall we were really happy with out stay here. The prices were great and the views were top notch!

Condo review We stayed at #505 Sugar Beach Resort and WOW, were we impressed! The condo building is situated right on the ocean, and #505 has a splendid ocean view. The owners recently gutted the condo and refurbished every inch of it beautifully. The living/kitchen area is an open concept design, and the decor has a sophisticated beach vibe with high-end finishes throughout. The owners took great care and concern for the comfort of their visitors. We loved the beautiful (and functional) island in the kitchen. The unit was spotless! There are numerous thoughtful touches and attention to detail such as a comfy bed, Toto washlet toilet, washer/dryer, in-room safe, a pull-out sofabed, and large smart TVs in the living room and bedroom. My husband is 6’ 2” and really appreciated the California King bed. Sugar Beach, on which the condo fronts, is a beautiful long strand, where we enjoyed morning walks after coffee on the balcony overlooking the pool. There is a wonderful outdoor grill area as well. Registration, check-in and check-out were a breeze with Vacasa, the management company. Will definitely stay again!

Wow! It's like having your own private beach. The water is so clear I barely needed my mask. The resort is well maintained. The condo has everything we need. The beds are firm but comfortable. We stayed in unit 436. The pool area is well maintained. Definitely staying here again.

We were looking for a place to stay during our Hawaii vacation in Maui. My partner wanted to stay close more to the happening areas (night life, restaurants etc) and sugar beach was far away from that. But we were pleasantly surprised with our stay in room 215 managed by Vacasa. The ocean was just maybe 10 feet away from our room. We woke up with the gentle sound of the waves breaking in the shore. We watched the early group Kayakers from our balcony while having breakfast. Vacasa also left us a welcome gift bag of chocolates and coffee pouches. Which I felt was very sweet. Even though we didn't cook the room was equipped a good amount of coffee mugs and bowls which we used daily. Only thing was they wanted us to load and start the dishwasher before we left. We loaded the dishwasher but it wasn't working. So we left a note. Amazing place, would definitely stay again.

We stayed at Sugar Beach Resort for two years in a row. The location is perfect, I love waking up to the sounds of the waves and watching the outriggers going by! We used Alii Resorts and Wiki-Wiki car rentals and would do it again!

This resort was great for families. The pool location was ideal and there was a lot of shady to watch the kids. Our room was great. Loved the balcony and washer/dryer. Location was awesome for walking to Shave ice and the Sugarbeach bakery. Only downsides are that the beach out front isn’t huge. We also wish they had provided more dish soap, laundry detergent and toilet paper. They did have a lot of beach toys.

We have visited Maui many times at Sugar Beach Resort. 416 is our favorite condo. It never disappoints, is well appointed, and continually updated. We love that it is ocean front looking down on a five mile long beach, the sound of the waves, and amazing sunsets. There is central AC, a washer and dryer in the condo, and a well stocked kitchen, We enjoy the ocean front pool, hot tub, sauna, and BBQ's. There is an activity center, sandwich shop/bar, available massages, and a formal dress shop on site. The resort is centrally located which makes sightseeing, restaurants, boat charters, and golf easy to reach. It is a very relaxing experience complete with the spirit of aloha. We are looking forward to our next return.

Wonderful Experience!! The condo was exactly what we were dreaming about! Clean, comfortable, and the beach-ocean view was stunning. We will recommend this place to everyone who wants to visit Maui! Quiet, away from touristy madness and yet so close to everything we wanted to do. Abundant parking spaces, pool and hot tub area not overrun with outrageously loud guests. Even a sandwich/bar place if you desire not to leave the area. Grocery store is close by, Costco is near the airport, 30 min from Lahaina, 1.5 hours from Haleakala, and 1.5 hours from Waianapanapa Black Sands Beach on the road to Hana. We couldn't have been happier!
