Excellent location and property. Beautiful beach and pool, and nearly all inclusive accommodations. Overpriced during week of stay, but this was the only negative. Very memorable family vacation to Sanibel island.

Our family has spent many spring break vacations on Sanibel, and the renovations/amenities have returned Sundial to our favorite vacation spot. We enjoyed tennis every day on the new clay courts with a variety of clinics for all levels. The pools and beach were fantastic as usual, and the new on-site market meant less trips out for essentials. We noticed... More

We just returned home from a great, relaxing week at the Sundial Resort. I was very impressed with the service throughout the facility and cleanliness of our room and the facility. If we ever venture back to Sanibel Island, we would certainly return to the Sundial.

This place was neglected for years, but new owners and reinvestment have gone a long way to bringing back the glory of yester year. we had a great time, the place is well run, and we cant wait to go back.

We've enjoyed several trips to Sundial over the years and always have had a great time. The resort staff, their facilities, and their great beach are strong points. Rental condo's are always comfortable but do sometimes range from high to so-so in terms of cleanliness and quality of furnishings, in-unit washer/dryer or not, kitchen supplies, ... But you're there for... More

There were way too many screaming kids in the pool -- I counted 27 one day. And crows cawing in the trees near the smaller pool which was way too warm all the time. No peace to be found except in our condo. Very disappointed to find the beach not what it use to be. It's near impossible to walk... More

I've returned to the Sundial a number of times in the last ten years and have never been disappointed in the overall quality of the facilities and the beauty of the shoreline.It's a great place for both adults and children.

We really enjoyed our two-night stay in a one bedroom apartment at Sundial. The property is huge, with several apartment buildings (plenty of parking in front), all within steps from the beach and the swimming pool. We loved the free bikes and the safe bike paths on Sanibel island. Shelling right outside our room at sunrise and sunset was lovely.... More

Good location. Friendly staff. Room needed ice maker instead of old fashioned ice trays. No washer and dryer in the room. Had to go downstairs to a laundry mat type room that required quarters and no change machine or detergent dispenser machine present.

The outside property is very nice. The amenities were generally good. Unfortunately, the condo was not well kept up and needed refurbishing. It was very inconvenient that the WiFi was not working. We expected better.
