Nice view, clean and spacious room, which we totally enjoyed but the tub was broken, whatever we requested in advance wasn't ready and Internet wifi and TV remote controllers were out of service- these were regretful. The Restaurant waitress who served our table was unfriendly but other seemed nice. Their Chicken fingers (kids menu) were so delicious, highly recommended. Getting... More

Very relaxing, great condo with super beds and super staff. Kayaks, bikes and paddleboards at your disposal. How great! Take advantage of the bikes and go through the preserve, the birds are beautiful. Bring a flashlight for early morning shell collecting!

My husband, parents, and I stayed at the Sundial for a short vacation last week. It was a last minute decision to go to Sanibel and we were very happy with our choice of resort. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We had a great view from our room and I was impressed with the cleanliness.... More

Great location on the beach! Our 2 bedroom condo was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. Easy access by bike to numerous restaurants, nature reserve, and great grocery store. Enjoyed paddle boarding and lounging in the resort's beach chairs. Would definitely go back!

We stayed in a condo at the Sundial Resort for ten days. The resort grounds were well maintained and staff were friendly and accommodating. When we first arrived they were just finishing up some remodeling of the downstairs facilities - but these had opened before the end of our trip. At a desk just beyond the pool they have towels,...

The Sundial has changed ownership. The remodeling has been going on for three years now. This year, there was no nearby towel concession for the pool, nor any restroom facilities unless you went through the lobby (although they opened one up the day we left). The hot tub was taped off for several days. The restaurant is still trying to... More

Dear Margaret K: Thank you so much for your feedback. We take these review very seriously and use them as training tools. I would like to clarify a few points. Not sure were the $50.00 charge comes from but we charge a "Resort Fee" of $30.00 per day and it includes Kayaks, Bicycles rentals, Beach chairs, beach umbrellas and loungers,... More

This is a wonderful place. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is 2 of the dinners we ordered were under cooked. I would recommend a car to explore the island. My wife and i spent our time on the beach collecting sea shells. Unbelievable the variety and quantity of shells

Just left after 3 days. The staff at the front desk were so helpful and friendly and the condo was updated and perfect. Only issue was no WIFI, it worked but not strong enough to get any access. Great vacation though and would definitely recommend with children.
