Our family has stayed at Sundial several times. The resort is a quiet, relaxing family-friendly place with wonderful pools, tennis, kayaking and bike rentals. Golf is available across the road. The beach here is one of our favourites in Florida & has world class seashell hunting. There are nearby nature preserves and parks to explore. Shopping, cafes and restaurants are... More

This hotel really exceeded my expectations. The room we stayed in (I-302) was absolutely beautiful. We stayed here on Labor day weekend (August 30-Sept 1) and it was so relaxing. The property is directly on the beach which was amazing. We loved the happy hour at the bar everyday (Pina Coladas $5) and the bar staff was very friendly. The... More

My family and I recently enjoyed a 10-day stay at Sundial Resort on Sanibel Island. We had never been to the island, or anywhere near that region but found it a wonderful stay. The resort is perfect to bring kids and there are a lot of amenities including umbrellas, kayaks, bikes, and a big pool. Location is great, just north... More

My wife and I visit Sanibel often and love the Sundial. It's centrally located and has all the amenities you need ! Great for the buck !! The staff is excellent as well . Pools are nice and near some of the top restaurants on the island. I recommend highly.

Had an amazing time in the island. Pool and beach were the highlights of the place! Rooms were spacious and had everything we needed. Will definitely recommend and also stay here again! Beach had beautiful shells and the tiki bar was convenient for drinks and food!

If you're looking for a nightlife this is not the place for you. Amazing sunrises and sunsets and star filled skies. We were there in the off season and the sea breeze cafe closed early. No customers. Bitten by many "no see um" bugs, like mosquitos. No one told us of them, otherwise i would have come armed with bug... More

Although we had virtually no contact with other hotel staff, Christian was super friendly and helpful in assisting us with our needs at the beach. Although it was busy and intensely hot, he worked quickly to set up our chairs and umbrella. He was on outstanding representative of the resort.

We have stayed here many times. Right on the beach, no unit is more than a two minute walk to hit the sand. The east condos are furthest from the main pool and rec area, which puts them in a quiet area, and the walk to the main area is just three or four minutes. Upper floor units are the... More
