My family and I - after much consideration - chose this hotel as our initiation into Maui. In fact, we had never been to Hawaii before prior to this trip.
As most Hawaii-travelers know, there are really two areas of Maui where one can stay at in resorts - Kaanapali (Northern Maui) and Wailea (Southern Maui). Wailea is a more expensive, touristy, golf-swinging area of Hawaii whilst Kaanapali is a more local approach as it is close to the cultural/historical town of Lahaina.
Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is located right next to Black Rock which makes it ideal for those looking to snorkel and inspect reef/tropical underwater life. It's a nice beach although quite crowded to say the least. The hotel itself is nice, clean, and rife with friendly/helpful staff but it's a bit old-fashioned and basic. One of the best features of Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is there is a large area in the lobby filled with staff that can expertly plan and cater your days/adventures in Maui to however you so choose. We booked our horseback riding at Ironwood Ranch in Northern Maui through them and gratefully gained pointers from them about how to drive the infamous Road to Hana.
Needless to say, Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa was a great choice for us although my family and I weren't so enamored with it that we'd stay in it again - if we were to come back to Maui, we'd probably experiment with another hotel although Kaanapali/Lahaina was definitely a fantastic area.
P.S. Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is also very close to the small Hawaiian island of Lanai - the staff can help book a ferry for you there where you can tour the island and swim in the Lanai dolphins!
