This is my third trip to the Sundial. The improvements the new owners have implemented our working. The workers, and the help had a smile on, everyday, and with every interaction truly seemed to want to help/make your stay was more enjoyable. We loved the addition of the Bailey's store. The offerings in the store were fantastic. Nice to be... More

This was our first stay at the Sundial post-renovations. I assumed the renovations extended to the rooms themselves, but I was sadly mistaken. The actual resort was very nice. We spent most of our time at a smaller pool close to our building (Building E). Our room was very worn - stains on the carpet, the shower door kept coming... More

The resort had so many things to do and I really liked how the rentals of bikes and kayaks were free. The fold out couch was counted as one of the beds and was not comfortable. View was pretty. Grounds were very pretty.

We have been going to Sanibel for the last 8 years and have always stayed at Sundial. Although it is an older property, it is well maintained and clean and the service is very good. There are a lot of activities to keep family members of all ages occupied. Great place to take the whole family.

The hot tub is to small for the size of resort. The room was nice but the bath/tub shower needs to be updated. Love having bikes to ride. Food was good. Staff at front desk was very friendly. Will come back.

Average. Staff generally unfriendly to requests or handling problems. Once u book, u are at their mercy. If u get a less than desirable unit, it's basically too bad! Great location. Great beach. Overall, had fun.

This was our 2nd stay at the Sundial. We love this place and Sanibel. Will be planning or next stay at the Sundial again. They have everything you need from beach toys for the kids to bike rentals. This is a great place to stay.
