This is a wonderful condo set on the beach! Each unit faces the beach! There are condos on 2 floors, with 2 pools and shuffleboard among 8 small buildings (each building has 6-10 units). We boogie boarded and swam right outside of our patio door. Will go back for sure.

Just read the review that stated that unit A2 smelled bad as of March 2, 2015. We checked into that unit on March 24th and it was immaculate and had no unpleasant smell whatsoever! I don't know what may have occurred before March 2 or after that guest left, but the unit was one of the cleanest, freshest units we...

Read the reviews, view the pictures over and over again. If any room has carpet still in it, there have probably not been a lot of upgrades done. We stayed over spring break in D10 - while the view and proximity to a great beach was awesome every time we came back to the room, the main living area, kitchen,...

We spent the week of March 2, 2015 at the Maalaea Surf Resort and were in unit A2 on the beach. The view and access to the beach were terrific. The staff at the resort was awesome and helped me out of a tire situation immediately. This would have been a 5 star rating if not for the room. The...

Thank you for your review. We are so happy you enjoyed your time at Ma'alaea Surf Resort. It is a truly magical place. We are sorry to hear your clothes smelled musty. That is the first and last time we've heard that about A2. The housekeepers and manager went into the unit to remedy this problem, but did not find...

We stayed in unit D-1 and it couldn't have been more perfect. The view was something out of a magazine. The staff from booking the unit to the maid service was exceptional. The kitchen was well stocked and there were lots of extra beach towels to use. Our neighbor was a tad rude, but we didn't let that affect our...

This is a property that is like it's own retreat. North Kihei is quiet and convenient, the beach just beautiful. The grounds are impeccably maintained, the units spacious, and the staff excellent. I like the layout and the vibe. We have stayed here before and knew this was the place to return for this trip. My unit, B-2 was spotless,...

Great place! We were in D5, beachfront. We could see the water from the living room and lanai. We could be in the ocean in under a minute. The waves were perfect and there was no undertow. The rooms are large with a full kitchen, well stocked and a modern bathroom. The place was quiet, we assume because it's after...

We came across Maalaea Surf Resort on Trip Advisor when searching for accommodation in the Kihei area as a good central location on Maui. What a find! Our condo was on the 1st floor, overlooking one of the pools and with great views of the bay. All of the condos are literally right on the beach. The facilities in the...

The Ma'alaea Surf Resort is a beautiful, well maintained set of condo's right on Sugar Beach, in north Kihei. No matter which unit you rent, you'll have a great view, and are only steps from the beach. We truly felt like this was our home during our 12 days on Maui. We stayed in unit E4, a 2/2 on the...
