Hotel Review: Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa


This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

The Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is a Category 5 SPG property meaning free nights range from 12,000-16,000 points per night. On a recent trip to Hawaii, I decided to book the hotel for 5 nights, where I received the 5th night free, so it cost a total 48,000 points for 5 nights.

The hotel is located on the Kaanapali side of the island. While renting a car isn’t a necessity, we decided to rent one in order to avoid the expensive taxis to/from the airport, so I would strongly recommend it.

As a Starwood Platinum member, I was upgraded to a lovely one-bedroom suite with a great view of the ocean.

The suite featured a large bathroom with a double vanity.

The bedroom featured a king-sized Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed and great views of the ocean as well.

The living room was separated by sliding doors and did have an outdoor seating area as well, to lounge out on.

Great views from the living room!

When it comes to the Sheraton Club Lounge, it’s an indoor/outdoor club, however it seemed lacking in my opinion compared to other clubs I’ve been to.

On the plus, the club lounge offers complimentary bottled water

Evening cocktails are complimentary for being a SPG American Express cardholder apparently.

Evening canapes in the club lounge, which were sparse.

Bottom Line

Overall the Sheraton Maui offers a solid product on the island, and if you book with Starpoints with the 5th night free deal, it comes to 9,600 points per night, where rates here can be as much as $400 per night, so there is definitely value to be had with booking with points.

If you’re looking for a way to earn even more Starpoints, you may want to consider the Starwood credit cards, Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express and the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express.

  1. Those last 3 pics are not very encouraging. Free parking your first day, $35 a day. Thats enough to make most NOT get the rental car for those staying more than 6 nights (taxi is approx $100 each direction). $25/day plus tax Resort fees not waived for points stays. Hotel taxes on Maui are currently 13.41 percent. Aloha!

  2. I’m sorry but the bathroom looks dumpy–as if it hasn’t been renovated since the 1980s. The room looks dark, too. You would expect some floral colors in the decor. As for the club lounge, what was breakfast like? Celery and nuts is kind of pathetic for an evening spread.

  3. Having achieved lifetime SPG Platinum status I must say this property sucks. Your photos and analyses of the property is even worst. Hope this is not your day job. Obviously this was your first time to Maui and you actually thought you were receiving something nice. I can’t blame you though because you’ve probably never tasted caviar and think Chipotle is fine dining. Nevertheless if you’re looking for something a little bit better in Maui yet still affordable, stay at the Westin Kaanapali. Highly recommend it over this crap review.
