The resort is large but everything is centralized in the middle. There are pools near every building but not towels or drinks by them. I mentioned that to the staff on my checkout but they said that there was a local municipality limit. It would have been extremely nice to be able to sit by the pool either early in... More

We came for a wedding and enjoyed our trip to Sanibel Island. We were very disappointed that we had a room without a balcony. The room was nice but my husband hated the bed....it was too soft for him. The staff and everyone were very friendly and helpful,.

I love the place and I love Sanibel. Words can't describe how awesome it is there. The staff everywhere was great. I couldn't believe the amount of things to do there. It was so romantic. Can't wait to go back!!

Great little resort for a family vacation. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Full kitchens a plus and BBQs. Renovations are nice. Poolside bar/restaurant could open earlier. Room faced both pool and Gulf. It was a spacious patio. We'll be back!

Rude staff. Rusty rooms. Bad dining options (no vegetarian options!) Holes in bed linen. The television barely works. If you want more than two beds, someone has to sleep on the couch! Roof has half dug holes in them. A/C is noisy and can't cool the whole room. Bathroom lacks proper ventilation(even though there already is a very noisy one)

Room was clean & spacious. The view was boring, we were disappointed our room did not have a deck but we were happy about having a separate bedroom. The staff was friendly and helpful. Free activities incl. kayak,bikes. They need more chairs for the beach and for all of the areas not just in front of the main area since... More

Sanibel is two-thirds nature preserve providing visitors with an experience of Florida the way it used to be. Sanibel Island is a natural playground where you can feel the white sand beach between your toes, take a refreshing swim in our blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico or one of Sundial's five pools and bike the miles of paved paths around the island. The Resort offers a wide array of activities for all ages including swimming in 5 heated pools, tennis courts, kayaks, bikes and an array of fun family activities by the pool. One- and two-bedroom Residences feature options for views and amenities and conveniences of home in a tranquil, tropical setting. These Residences offer a full kitchen with housewares, living/dining area, full baths and ample space that is ideal for couples or larger families. Best of all, Sanibel's pristine shell-dotted beaches are just steps away. The variety of dining venues are sure to please, offering indoor and outdoor dining options and delicious menu selection. Sea Breeze Café offers casual dining and local, fresh ingredients with a true Sanibel Island tropical flair. You’ll also enjoy the new poolside eatery, Turtle's Beach & Pool Bar, serving up delicious signature drinks and dishes.
