Very nice resort. Aging but with the restrictions on the island I am sure most building are. Our room K205 was great!! Very nice beach and shelling. Baileys market on site which is the local grocer, prices were more reasonable than I thought they might be and selection was good. We rented through Royal Shell properties which did a great... More

Terrific location on the beach for a family or group. We were four ladies looking to celebrate a birthday at a beach location not too far from our home in Fort Lauderdale. An easy two and a half hour drive across the state brought us to the lovely island of Sanibel on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. The... More

Have visited Sanibel and stayed at Sundial each year but one. Recent renovations at Sundial are great. Great family place. Looking forward to next year already. Enjoy are same great restaurant traditions each year. Celebrated 23rd anniversary at the Mad Hatter. Great place to unwind.

Great place to stay right on the beach, so convenient!! Very friendly staff. We loved the view from our room! We likes that once you were in the resort they didn't try to nickel and dime you for every little thing. Free towels, kayaks, biking, and paddle boarding! We enjoyed the Happy Hour Specials and the great convenience store that... More

Good location, nice rooms and nice amenities. Poor room service (cleaning) and follow-up on the part of their staff was bad. We had to call each day (four day trip) to get service or items needed. Help

Mom booked this place without doing enough research. We are small private resort travelers and the sundial is enormous. Six or seven buildings with three floors each. Our room did not have a view of the ocean and the upgrade to a room with a view was two hundred bucks a night more. We paid about $200/ nite and thought... More

We received a wonderful welcome from Stephanie. All of the staff was very friendly. The resort fee covered a wide range of things. Due to health reasons we did not use many of the amenities, but other guests verbalized their pleasure with all of the inclusive pricing and we thought it was a great value either way. The "pizza" restaurant... More

My family and I have traveled to Sanibel Island for the past six years and we always stay at the Sundial. The new renovations have made a great place even greater! We love the proximity to restaurants and shops. We spend a ton of time at the pools. This time, our room wasn't as clean when we got in as... More

Spent 2 days/nights in a 2 bedroom suite with my daughter who is about to have her first child. The room was wonderful and service all around excellent. We went to the spa and had mani/pedis which were great but very,very expensive. If I were to do this again we would go to another spa on the island.
