We enjoyed our stay though would like to try it when it is just a bit warmer out. It was low 70's when we were there. It was hard to get a chair at the pools but the pool temperature was great. Loved the bicycle check out.

We have stayed at the Sundial several times in past few years, and have always been satisfied. As background, my understanding of the Sundial is that there are two main ways you can stay here: you can rent a condo from the Sundial website (like a hotel), or you can rent from an owner (VRBO - not Sundial website). Renting... More

We have been here in the past so it was like home. The pool and exercise room have been updated. We had a 2 bedroom condo facing the beach with nice views. The room was clean and came with maid service every day. Everything worked in the room and it was very clean. the staff were very attentive and gave... More

This is our 9th year staying here, and it is better than ever. Nice rooms, pool, grounds, staff, setting on the beach. We highly recommend it. Thanks to Marina and her staff. The band at the bar is great.

Our sixth time to stay here. Only had one semi-bad experience in six visits. This is a great family place for vacations. Lots of things to do on the grounds without ever leavings. Wish we had come here years ago when our children were still living at home.

Resort was beautiful, but we had hiccups. Overall amazing. Our family enjoyed the Sundial and would recommend it for families. It was too cold to do too many water activities, in February. Great locat

Too Pricey for value received. $30 a day for 4 pool towels and use of the pool is absurd. The pool is part of the facility. Too Pricey for value received. $30 a day for 4 pool towels and use of the pool is absurd. The pool is part of the facility. Too Pricey for value received. $30 a day... More

We loved our stay. Lots to do and very accomodating. The only real negative was a lack of lights both inside and especially outside. We think that's a definite safety issue. Staff was good...food was good....everyone very friendly. We would definitely stay there again,if lighting issue was addressed

We had a great stay at the Sundial! My parents, my husband and I, and our three boys 11, 9, and 6 all loved it. Resort had a low key, relaxed feel which was perfect for us. Pool was heated, which was ideal- went swimming when air temps were in the 50s and 60s. Boys went shelling every morning when... More
