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!
A Great Place to Stay
(Albany, New York)
May 21, 2022
We planned our stay in Maui with little real knowledge of the best area to stay in Maui and we were very happy with our choice at Sugar Beach Resort! Close to the airport and stores for supplies and restaurants made settling in quick and easy. But the best feature is the oceanfront view each condo has! Spectacular!! The resort also has a deli/bar that makes great sandwiches and iced drinks! The only thing that made me give this a 4 was the limited availability of shade at the beach or pool for those like me who can't be in direct sun for long. Still I would return here for all the other pluses.
Lots of loud little kids
Apr 18, 2022
The area is very windy and the resort is very loud. Lots of little kids running around everywhere. The pool was always full of little kids whose parents did nothing to stop the shrieking and running around. Not the right spot for a relaxing couples getaway. We won’t be coming here again.
Kaanapali Plantation Resort unit 40
Apr 18, 2022
Booked thru MauiHoliday.com, BIG MISTAKE. Spoke to Glen, the owner on a Friday and addressed the issues that had arose thus far, nothing done. Reached out again on Sunday twice with issues which arose again, no response. It’s Monday 9am still no response. I am very sure the actual owners are not aware of the lack of date and concern from the management company.
Issues addressed: ice maker/fridge, no hot water, toilet overflow issue, parking, subpar fans. No dishwasher pods
Still here until Thursday. Let’s see if there is a response!
North Kihei, Sugar Beach Resort, Ali’i Resorts agency

North Kihei is the place to be on Maui. Not extra densely crowded like South Kihei, Wailea or Lahaina/Kanapali. No crowds here. Also, North Kihei is the hub for every location on Maui. You can spoke out to every part of the island without having to drive the entire length of the island every time you go out.
The Sugar Beach Resort six floor condo complex we stay at was built in 1977 and looks like it. But that’s the charm of it. It’s right on the beach, not ‘Near’ the beach or a ‘5 minute walk’ to the beach, it’s On the beach. Our daily early morning beach walk is literally a minute from our door. It also has a large pool and separate in-ground hot tub. Also on the grounds is a large self contained 6 BBQ station that is alway super clean. Although the condo complex was built in 1977 the facility maintenance and cleanliness are top notch.
All the units here are privately owned. Some units are newly remodeled and others, while functional, could use updating. It depends on each unit owner. On Ali’i Resorts website you can browse pictures of each unit they manage so you can pick which one you like. We have used Ali’i Resorts for many years to book the units we like. We have had many years of success with Ali’i Resorts and will continue to book with them as they’ve been great this whole time. I Highly recommend using Ali’i Resorts to book on Maui over other sites like Air B&B or other similar sites. Ali’i Resorts is full service and they have always been very responsive.
