The service was excellent, our room was nice and clean and well maintain. We love the gym, the bikes, we really enjoyed our vacation, the staff is very friendly and profesional, the beach is so nice, they really did an excellent job remodeling the Resort.

Great place to just relax and enjoy the beach and pools. Rooms are very comfortable and welcoming. Nothing is too far away. Be sure to take advantage of the bikes and tour the island. I like that everything you need is provided.

I would definitely not recommend this hotel. The front desk staff was very nice and friendly but the customer service provided by the rest of the hotel staff was terrible. The hotel itself was not new but was recently renovated therefore it looked decent. The main pool area is too small.

Such nice facilities with everything you could possibly need within a few steps! The beach was beautiful as was the pool. And all the staff we interacted with was extremely nice and helpful!! My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer.

My husband and I got away for a few days over memorial day weekend. The one bedroom gulf view condo was clean and comfortable. The kitchen had every amenity you could think of. The beds were comfortable, shower clean and the property is lovely. One of the best parts of staying at Sundial is getting chairs and umbrellas on the... More

The resort was lovely, parking easy. Wonderful place for family vacation. We were a large group and we could all eat and drink together. My only complaint is that there were not enough kayaks. Great trip though.

The front desk was very helpful in accommodating our request for a room above the ground floor. The pool bar staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding restaurants for an anniversary dinner. The onsite restaurant serves a killer 'No Woman, No Cry' burger that is one of the best burgers I have ever had. I will definitely be... More

We arrived with confirmation email in hand, but they did not have our reservation in their system. It took an hour for the clerk to figure out that the room we had booked, a 1bdrm oceanfront, was no longer avail. However, lucky for us, they upgraded us to a 2bdrm, which I was assured was also oceanfront. As it was... More

A wonderful holiday weekend at the Sundial Resort. We arrived and were treated great and loved our clean, updated, quiet room which was stocked with all the needed amenities. We enjoyed the screened in porch in our room, the closeness of the ocean and our walks on the beach. We had breakfast daily in the restaurant and enjoyed our server... More
