Stayed here recently after many years and it was wonderful. Location is great and the staff is super helpful and courteous. Would highly recommend. Love the availability of free kayaks and paddle boards! Pool was excellent as well and the beach is beautiful.

Sundial offers a four star stay. I will always stay on this property when I visit Sanibel. No other hotel can compare. The cleanliness and comfort of the room was remarkable. The service was great. You actually feel as though you are in your very own apartment.

Been staying here periodically for over 20 years, under prior and now new ownership. Property is well maintained, the staff is accommodating, and the location is great. My Gulf front room had been refurbished and was well appointed. Not inexpensive but we got what we paid for.

I remember staying at the Sundial Resort as a kid most summers. it was great then and my kids enjoyed it now. Pool was great, food and drinks at the Tiki bar were great as well, everyone was friendly. Definitely come back again next year.

I recently stayed at Sundial Beach Resort and Spa for a conference. The staff were excellent! Loved the food, the view, my room. EVERYTHING was great!! The restaurants offered a good value for the food! I was pleasantly surprised by the choices for vegans here! I live in Lee County so I would highly recommend this as a staycation place!!

Clean, great location and great amenities. Went to a work related conference while family enjoyed the many activities. Kids enjoyed the pool and kayaking the best. My husband and I enjoyed the relaxation. Everyone had a great time!
