5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The chef making the omelet was amazing! I had the veggie one and it was fresh and full of flavor. My husband had a waffle with fruit on top. An omelet and potatoes with sausage and bacon. We spent $40 for two people. Loved the view outside!

Excellent stay. The staff was always friendly and helpful. You could do a lot and not get price gouged. The on-site store had excellent food and snacks at very reasonable prices. The food and service at the restaurants was excellent. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Great hotel, clean, nice staff, several swimming pools, towels included, the appartments are realy big and homey. I woudn't recommend paying extra for a room with a view because our view was limited (to the side and through an insect screen).

Dear 225red, Thank you for the excellent review! We are glad you enjoyed the property and that our team was so nice. We do apologize for the miscommunication with the view, the coastal views are partial, indirect views and all of our balconies are screened in due to the many insects on our island. We look forward to seeing you... More

The rooms were spacious and provided ample storage to keep our room orderly. The staff was very quick to accommodate our needs. Raphael went out of his way to be sure we were taken care of. One of the front desk staff didn't know that Slice of Paradise closed early which was a little disappointing; however, the waitress at Sea... More

Loved all the fun beach amenities! Towel service, chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, paddle boards, bikes, & more! Was very relaxing. Bed was not very comfortable, flat pillows, & our kitchen did not have bowls.

Wonderful weekend with my Mother! I have stayed at Sundial before and it never disappoints me! Our 2 bedroom coastal was beautiful and clean. The food from Turtle Tiki bar was fabulous and the bartender very funny and kind.

We are usually here at least 3 times a year and we love it..... It's always very clean and comfortable. It's our place to go and relax . You really do not have to leave your room for anything. Can't wait for next year to go back. Maybe sooner since I'm planning to get married there in Sundial....

We all were really able to enjoy the beach and the pools. The activities for the kids were a lot of fun. Our little ones loved the slide at the main pool and the ice cream. My nephew and niece made good use of the workout center.

Please tell property in a great location with decent food. Easy access to the beach and nice activities included. Pools could be updated. Could easily book a few days here and not have to leave the property. At the same time convenient to other island activities and restaurants if you wanted to.
