The Sundial Beach Resort and Spa is by no means a five star Cancun all-inclusive however, for a Sanibel resort, it ranks well. The positives: the resort's beach front access and multitude of pools were welcoming. The beach never felt crowded, though we did visit during "off season" (July) and the pools were large enough to offer plenty of space... More

Dear Katflights: It is very refreshing to see someone that would take the time to detail positives and negatives on a positive way. I believe that the amenities that we offer with our resort fee are a lot more than many others. I am sure that if you dealt with Marina she mentioned about the wi-fi. As much as we... More

Nice resort with beachfront access and family friendly with plenty amenities included in resort fee, Would've enjoyed ourselves more if resort beach towel policy wasn't so cumbersome on checkout and returns but we managed.

This was not our first trip to Sanibel, but the first time we stayed at the Sundial. We asked for a newly renovated room and it was perfect! All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will return!

Nice resort. some issues with the room. No pans in kitchen. TV remote did not work and the shower head was terrible!! Even after maintenance "fixed" it, it was more of a sprinkle. Very inconvenient especially when you have kids with you.

This was our first stay in Sanibel and can't wait to return! We were instantly upgraded to a two bedroom condo, which was beautiful!! The staff was all very kind and made us feel welcome. Everything was extremely enjoyable and relaxing!!

For sixteen years, we have stayed at Sundial, renting directly as well as privately. We have been noticing some wonderful changes in all areas of the property, thanks to the new management company which was long overdue. There are more changes to come which we look forward to. Keep up the good work. btw: I am the owner of a... More

Our family has been coming to Sundial Beach Resort for 4th of July holiday for about eight years. We have always found this resort to be fantastic. However, about a year ago this was handed over to a new management. Ever since that happened this place has been slowly going down the drain. The new management specifically the GM has... More

This was our second stay at the Sundial and we couldn't be more pleased with the accommodations, staff, and activities for our two daughters (age 5 and 8). We are in love with Sanibel Island and can't wait to return and stay for our third time at the Sundial when we do. Great experience!
