Lovely get-away; very nice resort. If more time, I would have enjoyed bicycling w/ bicycles provided. Ate in town, so don't know about the restaurant except breakfast which wasn't exceptional. Love the heated pools!

Very Modern and nicely equipped facility on Sanibel Island. Had a great time and the 2 bedroom condo was fabulous. Will be back in the future. Great location and beach and well trained staff. Pool has a nice smaller water slide for children that was greatly enjoyed by our 4 year old.

We spent our second year in a row vacationing in Sanibel and staying at the Sundial. We really like this place a lot. The accommodations are essentially full service condos. Full kitchen, living room, dining area and of course bedroom and bath. We shop for groceries our first day at Jerry's which is 5 minutes away, and we make breakfast... More

Stayed three nights at The Sundial property recently with my wife and her mother. The two bedroom unit we had was very well appointed and the beach was just steps away from our rooms. Kitchen had all the utensils and supplies you would need to stay in and cook, and just a short walk away were two outdoor grills for... More

We stayed at the Sundial for the first time ever this past weekend. The hotel staff was super friendly and the rooms were very clean and well organized. The restaurants within the hotel were delicious and offered friendly customer service. I had a facial done at the Kay Casperson Spa and it was amazing. Hazel treated me like royalty and... More

We only stayed one night but it gave us a taste of what Sanibel Island was like....a lot of fun! We easily rented bikes from the hotel, swam in their beautiful pool and lounged by the beach on their property! The condo was beautiful and clean but the bathroom needed updating! But for one night it was fine! One other... More
