Very nice stay, but a little more investment would be required before I would return
Pros: 1. View of the ocean and beach - this is a second floor condo that is literally ocean front. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed drinking coffee on the lanai every morning while watching the sunrise and listening to the ocean. This is one of the few resorts on Sugar Beach that is actually ocean front (meaning no road between you and the ocean). 2. Location of the condo - this is a second floor unit, so it provides better views than the ground floor, but not so high that it is ridiculously hot. It is a corner unit, so you only have 1 neighbor. You see the ocean out of you lanai, and it has a large window through which you can view the pool. It is also right next to stairs and elevators, and just a short walk from the parking lot to the unit. 3. Air conditioning - worked great. I was surprised at how difficult it was to find a unit with air. The place we stayed on Kauai was actually nicer, but did not have air! 4. Location in Kihei - It is great proximity to the airport and other beaches in Maui. If you want to explore Maui, this is the best city to do it in. 5. On site services - there is a rental shop located on site that we rented beach chairs and cooler (should not have had to rent tho, the condo had really crappy chairs so we rented). There are also great people who set up a few excursions for us, very convenient. Cons - Let me preface this by saying the cons are minor. However, with just a minor investment, they could take this condo from great to amazing. I would still recommend this place, but will probably try elsewhere when we return. 1. Beach towels - Only 3 of them, and old and raggedy. W 2. Beach chairs and cooler - the beach chairs were many years old, rusted, and TERRIBLE to sit in. We tried them once, and then immediately rented. Also, there is a very small cooler that holds about 4 water bottles. People come to Hawaii for the beach. There should be a large cooler, and nice beach chairs/beach towels for use. 3. The bathroom was nicely updated but - why not finish the job and update the shower faucet and replace the nasty toilet seat? It's just a few hundred dollars to do the job right. 4. Dishes - no complete set of dishes, just cheap and mismatched. Utensils were sparse. 5. Electronics - needs new TV, not that we watched it much 6. Beach - We went to 12 beaches on Maui, and Sugar beach is the worst beach on the island. You will definitely want to go to other beaches if you enjoy sunbathing, snorkeling and nice sand
