We spent 5 nights in unit #605 at Island Sands Resort August 2-7, 2015. The unit was welcoming and had everything you needed to make your stay comfortable. The owner, Nikta, had beautiful flowers and fruit for us upon our arrival and made sure all was well during our stay. The unit is beautifully decorated and has an amazing ocean...

We stayed in the #512 at Island Sands Resort from 7/16-7/27. From the minute we walked in we felt right at home. The cold water bottles in the fridge, macadamia nuts and beautiful fresh flowers throughout the condo were a pleasant surprise after a long flight. The view was absolutely stunning.... we had a hard time leaving the lanai to...

We are staying here on a quick business trip here on Maui and got this on Expedia. Very surprised after a bit of a process to get a key code for our room to discover we had a ground floor ocean view room. What a score this was. Not to mention the 10 or so giant Sea Turtles just outside...

Mahalo for your review of the Island Sands Resort. Our condo rental agency manages some of the rental condos at the Island Sands and we also work with Expedia to advertise these rooms, so it sounds like you may be in one of our condos. That is great you are enjoying your stay, views, and turtle neighbors out front! As...

We stayed in 512 from 4/24-5/1/15. WOW, what an awesome unit. The owners have surely paid attention to detail in this one. This unit is a 2 bedroom and 2 full bath end unit with plenty of space and nicely decorated. The guest bedroom has 2 comfortable beds with an attached bathroom, with a cute walk in shower and plenty...

We booked our honeymoon through expedia to stay at the CRH Island Sands Condos in September. Because we came in on a Sunday, there was no one to check us in and the second we walked into our condo we were hit with an overwhelming stench of urine, there was mold on the walls and covering picture frames, ants crawling...

Thank you for your review of the Island Sands room you stayed in. We are sorry to hear that it did not meet your standards. Our notes on your reservation show that you just wanted to leave Island Sands, but we didn’t hear about your detailed complaints until reading this review. We wish we could have heard about these while...

I had the pleasure of staying in this sweet little condo for several months up until April of this spring, and I hope to return one day! The property owners are without a doubt some of the nicest people on the Island, and work right there in the harbor so they are always available if there is ever an issue....

Six floored condo building located on beautiful Maalaea Bay, southern Maui. We stayed in a nice first floor, end unit, 2 bedroom, 2 bath (Rent by Owner) with laundry, open kitchen, dinette, living area, and patio. With both doors open there was a nice ocean breeze through the updated unit. The location was great for morning walks on the beach,...

This condo (#209) was perfect in every way. We loved the location right on the water and the quietness of the area yet close to 3 great restaurants and a large beach. The pool was always so clean and warm and lounge chairs always available. We had a one bedroom with king size bed which was great. The kitchen was...

First let me say that the location is fabulous if you have been to Maui many times and want a vacation as opposed to exploration and entertainment. I just loved the location and didn't even mind the walk to a minuscule beach to gather sea glass. That said, obviously every reviewer brings their own standards to a review and Unit...

Thank you for your review of the oceanfront Island Sands Resort. Our vacation rental company manages many condos at this property, but we unfortunately do not manage condo 106, which you reference. I am sorry to hear that you experienced ants in your condo. Every condo at the Island Sands is sprayed every three months for bugs, and if any...

We had a great stay at the island sands for our first hawaiian vacation. The room had all the appliances for a week long stay, which helped us save money by eating in for most meals. The only beef I have is that the bedroom did not have AC so I actually slept a few nights on the couch since...
