This was our first visit to Sanibel and we will definitely return. We had a two bedroom condo and it was very spacious and beautiful. Staff was great and the facilities excellent!! Everything was easily accessible. We will definitely stay again!

This was our second stay at the Sundial and we couldn't be more pleased with the accommodations, staff, and activities for our two daughters (age 5 and 8). We are in love with Sanibel Island and can't wait to return and stay for our third time at the Sundial when we do. Great experience!

Very comfortable suites with pleasant views of the ocean on peaceful Sanibel. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the World Cup at pool bar and lobby bars. This is an excellent choice for families to get away and re-connect. Many things to do, kayaking, leisure bicycling all over the island, nature preserve or many other activities the staff can recommend.

We took full advantage of the bicycles & kayaks available for our use. Sanibel is fully accessible by bike & has many good restaurants. We spent most of our time on the beach& in the water. Our condo was clean & spacious. Used to a large flat screen as opposed to the old tv in the condo. Overall, highly recommend.

I really recommends this place. Family activities were great. The only recommendations is to install lights in the parking areas in the building C. That would be perfect for nights walk. That area was too dark at night.

Do not believe the pictures of the room as they are not accurate. The beach is lovely and the main pool and eco center are great for kids. As a Florida resident I was expecting an amazing stay though there were some things that hindered that.

My favorite new beach getaway! Met with friends to celebrate my b-day weekend. Room was spacious and comfortable. Love the idea of having a kitchen in the room! Got more than I bargained for. Love it!

Usually great stay, but this year's room was less then average on cleanliness....;-( Huge cockroach and floor was filthy, rushed to clean, and black mold in shower. Room needed some upkeep. However resort itself is great and we would still visit as we have over the last 4 years.

This is the third year in a row that we ,as a family, have spent the 4th of July long weekend at the SunDial. We all love it. The rooms are lovely and the staff friendly. We can't wait to come back next year.

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at Sundial and would definitely like to return. The place was clean, well cared for & I love the amenities included in the price. I also love that it's beachfront & the price was very good.
