First we arrived to unit J101. The lock was broken on the door and impossible to open. So we went around to the lanai and the door was open to the condo. A bit scary if one were alone. So we got in and opened the main door from inside. Needless to repeat, IT STINKS LIKE GROSS MOLD/MILDEW! This has... More

Such a wonderful resort. I was unsure from their website what to expect and there was a decent amount of confusion when I booked the room for my family of 5. But the front desk handled it and helped me through everything. Once we arrived we immediately felt at peace from the surroundings to the room to the service. Look... More

We like the Sundial and have stayed there multiple times. But we were disappointed this year that there was no working outlet in the bathroom, no response to our complaint, and no Golf Channel! The beach is not soft sand (mostly shells) and the detritus gives it a smell. Outside bar/lunch is great sas are the bartenders.

Sundial resort & spa is our favorite and only place to stay in beautiful Sanibel. Always immaculate and staff is awesome. We always have a great time. We always want to stay longer! See you next time Sundial!

Really enjoyed our stay--would certainly come back! Particularly enjoyed access to the bikes--we love riding around the island. The staff was friendly and we really appreciated the daily room cleaning

We chose this hotel somewhat with a hope and a prayer. It had gotten good reviews, but there were a number of less than glowing assessments which seemed to be mostly focused on the disruption caused by the recent renovations. Fortunately, the works is now done (or mostly done). The central building in now quite nice, the pools was great... More

The resort had all we needed, right on the beach and bikes available and the kitchen setup is very useable, the porches a bit small but nice enough. The biggest complaint was the online booking which did not make clear at all that you might end up with two double beds for a couple. And we did and that was... More

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
