"We had a great time!"
We loved our condo and will visit again next year. Beautiful uncrowded beach, very relaxing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, great beach access"
Staff kept coming to our door stating we requested service for 2 days in a row. Never called for any service. One day came to clean the room at 8:30 in the morning, the next day it was 4:30 in the afternoon. Room itself was very nice, had a separate bedroom instead of everything all adjoining. Overall it was a good trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location for kids"
Extended family - grandkids from 18 months to 11 years old all had plenty to do. Swimming, shelling, kayaks, event one had funGenuine Expedia guest review
"has all the needed amenities, but lacks service"
the room was nice enough, well equipped kitchen, nice dining room and living room. the pull out couch was terrible. no ice in the freezer, front desk had to bring one to the room which took forever. I would also suggest that the hotel put more than one of each of those tiny tiny tiny tiny bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel and have extra […] towels. but it was a nice stay and the location is FAB.. I would stay again and recommend it Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sundial at Sanibel"
The Sundial Resort was fantastic. LOTS of things to do for my two teenage boys and two younger kids. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the facilities were fantastic and clean. Highly recommend the Sundial Resort to anyone looking to relax AND entertain the kids at the same time. Sundial provides bikes, kayaks, beach umbrellas, towels, […] every thing you need for a day on the beach. Then walk over to the Tiki Bar, grab a drink and hang out next to the very clean and well manitained swimming pool. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Wonderful time"
My family only stayed one night, I'm sorry to say. We could have easily made a week of it there. The beach is right at hand. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff was great.Thank you Sundial.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Disappointed with condition of 1 bedroom suite. Many things didn't workGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Love the Sun Dial! I have been going there for 24 years!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location to stay in Sanibel!"
We really enjoyed our stay at the Sundial Beach Resort in Sanibel Island, FL and would highly recommend. The location was great, we found the staff to be extremely helpful, room was very clean and my only issue was I wish we had booked with an ocean view verses a garden view. Next time for sure!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Booked 2 rooms. One was ok, the other had several things broken or pluggedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This resort was so much more than we expected. With the recent renovations complete Sundial is a top notch resort with so many amenities including bikes, beach chairs/umbrellas, and kayaks that are all included in the resort fee. Also loved the very large covered area at the main pool which provided lots of room for their activities as well as shade […] when you've had enough sun! The food was delicious and the views from the living area and bedroom can't be beat! Will be making this an annual trip for sure! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"CONDO H309 NEEDS UPDATED."
THE SUNDIAL RESORT WAS NICE. LOTS OF THINGS FOR CHILDREN TO DO, THE ONLY THING MISSING WAS NO SUPERVISION AROUND THE POOL AREA FOR ROWDY KIDS.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Facilities, Great Location"
We've stayed at other hotels on Sanibel and this is by far our favorite. The location is great--sort of in the middle of the island with easy access to restaurants, shops, activities, beaches, etc. The several times we've stayed here our room was excellent: upgraded kitchens and bathrooms, rooms were all clean, nice balconies with screens, very comfortable […] beds, and lots of storage. However, I think all the units are individually owned, so there may be some that are hit-and-miss. The hotel has a central pool area with comfortable lounge chairs and a great covered pool bar. In addition there are several other pools on the property if you're looking for something more relaxed, or away from kids. The pool bar and lobby bar have excellent food as well. The beach by the hotel is very nice, like all beaches I've been to on Sanibel--and the beachfront for the hotel is pretty long since the hotel is so big. There's a rental facility on site for umbrellas, bikes, etc, and all the staff that we've ever dealt with have been very nice and helpful. The only negatives that I have are that some parts of the grounds are a little run-down (tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, volleyball court-but hotel is in the middle of a renovation, so that may improve) and there isn't a gift shop or anything to pick up toiletries or snacks.

"Vero nice localizo"
I got a Coastal Two bedroom room for our family and I was pretty happy with it. I requested 2 queen beds instead 2 twins in the second room and they accommodate our requirement witch was very nice. There is construction still going on but it didn't disturb us at all. The lobby and the 2 new restaurants are now open and they look really nice. The restaurants […] have really nice ocean view and the quality of the food was good. Overall we were happy with our experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location. Nice main pool and beach area."
We took our 2 children and enjoyed our stay a lot! The location is perfect since you can easily jump back and forth from the beach to the pool. The live music and happy hour at the pool made for a relaxing time as well. We ate dinner in the Sea Breeze Café, and the food was delicious and priced right since you'd pay more on other restaurants on the […] island. We loved having a full kitchen since we were able to cook a lot. The kids loved the eco center where they fed the animals, the shell slide, and the bike rentals. We will definitely come back next year! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Couple Getaway"
This is the perfect couple getaway location. Very relaxing and calming. Perfect when it comes to being semi-secluded from the surrounding cities. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Definitely worth every penny.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyed our stay but condos need updating."
The condo we stayed in, which was in Building G, was in great need of updating. The carpet was very stained and needed replacing. Ceilings need to be redone. If you don't have a car, you're in trouble because there is no place to purchase snacks or drinks for your room, and if it's raining you're going to get wet walking to the restaurants. On the other […] hand, the restaurants were very good, and the staff was very helpful. I would stay at the hotel again once the remodel is complete, but I'd try to stay closer to the lobby area.

"Includes all you need for Sanibel!"
Such a wonderful place to stay. We loved the food at the restaurant and the staff there was super nice and fun. But, having access to bikes, kayaks and beach chairs, at no additional cost was extremely important and wonderful!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very relaxing vacation"
Sundial was a beautiful resort. The staff was very friendly and even let us check in 3 hours early. We took advantage of the free bike rental and went on a great bike ride throughout the island. Simply cupcakes is a must stop in the Dolce Tesoro. The cupcakes are to die for and the service we received was amazing. Overall, and amazing vacation. I definitely […] recommend this resort!!!

"Well worth it!"
IT was a wonderful experience and we would reccomend it to anyone looking for a laid back beach experience...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Mother/daughter long weekend getaway !"
Our condo F306 was very nice. Recently updated with new appliances. Comfortable and clean. Two problems: toilet ran constantly unless we wiggled the handle. Giving out clean Towels and washcloths were skimpy. Had to call everyday for them. Some construction on exterior by pool. Not too annoying. Friendly staffGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is nice, The prices for food and drink at the motel and all other points of interest are outrageous!10$ for 8oz piñacolada or 10$ for a hamburger and potato chips.It is a beautiful island but everything is way too expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent hotel/condominium! Room was clean, comfortable and worth the price. Room service was invisible during our stay there...meaning we never saw them around but the room was always cleaned and new towels each day were provided. Hotel staff was excellent! Great customer service and provided us with some "insider hints" about Sanibel Island. Would […] definitely stay at Sundial during our next overnight visit to Sanibel!!!

""Great hotel for Family""
Sanibel is beautiful & the Sundial is right on the beach in a great location. The pool was a lot of fun for the kids and has a slide. We will definitely be going back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice beach,very relaxing"
great location,needs some update,overall 4 out of 5 starGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed our stay, although our place could have used some improvements inside. Had to drive everywhere to eat because we didn't bring our own food. Didn't realize we would have a full kitchen.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to relax and enjoy family time"
The room were clean and fresh. Staff were very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First vacation to Sanibel Island"
Even though it was under renovation, the Sundial Resort was well managed and the food was wonderful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!!"
I selected this hotel and paid a LOT OF MONEY for the amenities but was sadly disappointed as we were in the condo section while the amenities were in the main hotel not really walkable distance for us! First, the lobby was nice after recent remodel but front desk clerk extremely busy with telephone and guests - Not enough time to really answer questions […] or concerns. Condo was in terrible shape - if you put in white carpet and light colored furniture you need to keep it clean! Limited towels- one per person, 1 small bar of soap to share between bath sink and tub, no kitchen linens, several repairs needed - shower head and cupboard doors! Would NOT recommend this hotel!

"Great 2-bedroom suite"
Spacious room, great view of the pond, pool, and ocean, loved the huge screened in balcony, and it was nice having bikes included with room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved this resort!"
Staff was very accommodating and friendly. The resort was well manicured, rooms clean and updated, and they had several amenities for all of our family members. Will definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was a very nice resort located on beautiful grounds. The front desk staff were super nice and helpful. The housekeeping......could use a few tips. We didn't get clean washcloths two nights in a row. They didn't take our dirty towels away. They never left dishwashing detergent for us to wash the dishes. There were about four or five cracks in the […] tiles in the room. Other than that, very nice stay and we would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for any beach vacation!"
The hotel was clean, beautiful, newly renovated, reasonably priced and on the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was our first time at the Sundial and we loved it. Our condo did not have an ocean view but I knew that and it did not bother us. The condo was updated nicely and was quite spacious. It was very clean and everything was in working condition. We were in F 106 on the west side and we really liked the pool that was near our condo. It was a slow time […] as we never had a problem getting chairs on the beach with an umbrella. I would definately go back to the Sundial. We did not eat at the Sundial. The only negative would be it would have been nice to have a newsletter about what activities are going on at the resort. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"still under construction"
The good: great location, some of the employees were very accommodating, hotel had a nice pool as well as beach access. The not-so good: replacement of supplies and cleaning service were available only after we specifically requested them, construction of the main restaurant was still incomplete.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location for the beach and shopping"
The room was turn key ready, fully equipped with all kitchen necessities.Our king bed and pillows were quite comfy. The unit is probably 1980's vintage. It was very clean and daily maid service was excellent. We had a coastal & main pool view as promised, which was lovely. There was an ongoing remodeling project of the main lobby and restaurant located […] above the pool area. It's a noisy necessity, but it looked like the results will be nice for future guests. The lobby entrance to the resort is going to beautiful, and it may be done by now. The pool was large and nicely heated. The tiki bar has a short happy hour. Enjoyed shelling right there on the beach, and the convenience of the shell cleaning station. Umbrellas and beach chairs were set out everyday. We did visit the shell museum on day 1, which explained a lot about the shells & live sea creatures in the area. It was a quiet visit, as we seemed to be on the island right after spring break was over. We will go back to this resort. Tip, most restaurants and shopping will require a car trip into town. We did not rent any bicycles, although they had plenty available. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful beach but not meant for a party."
I went with friends and I wish we would have known that the island closed at 9pm! Very nice location, right on the beach perfect for beach access but activity around the hotel was almost nonexistent. This was a relaxing weekend but not the best destination for those who are looking for a party! The hotel had a lot of amenities and activities offered […] I just wish we would have had closer access to restaurants and bars. Great, relaxing, beautiful beach! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is under renovation work, so at times it was loud and inconvenient.. Also after we checked in we went to the room and found trash at the entrance, towels on the floor in the bathroom and some personal belongings of the previous occupant. We complained and were moved to another room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will be fantastic"
This is a great hotel in a quiet part of the beach strip. The rooms while old have been updated. The room layout is great. Comfortable and practical and well stocked. The hotel is currently undergoing renovation of it's lobby area. When it is done it will be great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Condo Uncomfortable Beds"
The hotel is absolutely beautiful both inside and out. However, when it comes time to sleep the pull out couch just doesn't make for a comfortable night sleep. Whether it's the kids waking up in it or the adults trying to get comfortable in it. It's just horrible. However, the king bed was very nice. Last and probably most importantly, the beach is […] awesome, and so is the whole island. I would definitely go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Note refurbished work in progress."
Reception area & main dining areas currently being refurbished. We would note have booked if we knew this work was in progress.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Another perfect stay"
This is the second time we have stayed at the Sundial. This time, just as with our first time, two months ago, things were perfect. Many upgrades and improvements are underway and I expect future visits to be even better. Great value, great location. What more can you ask.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a nice place, however it is under renovation, so if you check out their website, you probably want to email them as to what is available. I think it will be nice when it is complete. Room was nice, beach and location was great. I'll be interested to go back when it is done.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We loved it!"
Everything was perfect. The construction/renovation that the resort is undergoing did not bother us at all. Our experience was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The kids loved the pool area and water slideGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for our needs"
We needed a room that was: Clean, Centralized, On the Beach, Affordable and on Sanibel Island. This was IT! Some construction going on the main Lobby area, looks like a great improvement for our next visit. Rooms were large (Condos) we were happy to get a Kitchen. Very clean rooms, comfortable Beds, large balconys, clean public use areas. Check in-Check […] out hassle free. The best part about this place is the beach. It was perfect for our toddler. Lowtide produces wading pools and sandbars for the little one to go exploring without the threat of waves and currents. Tons of shells for the hunter in you. very long, white, soft, sandy beach that was not crowded at all. Occasional jogger or shell hunter passer-by. Very very happy here. Doc Fords is a great place to eat. Its bustling but not too busy to be a turn off. Perfect for families inside or out. American/carribean/S.american fusion. BananaLeaf Snapper and crab cakes are awesome. Yucatan Shrimp were great as well. Your first stop on the island once you get settled in should be Baileys Market Place. The only affordable place on the island. Its a Grocery store/ General Store and coffee shop in one. Quaint place/friendly people, excellent coffee. Check out their smoked meats (fresh smoked mahi mahi every day). Also check out the Ding Preserve. 4 mile car path (10mph) with lookout points. Very peaceful. Plenty of wildlife. Only $5.00 per car and it goes to a good cause. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not very good"
Room had maintenance and housekeeping issues. TV not working in bedroom. Broken handles on drawers in bathroom. Tub drain cloogged. No vent in bathroom. Terribly outdated room. Really needs total renovation.Genuine Expedia guest review
I loved this place. It's a little older but the furnishings were very nice and updated. On the beach we saw dolphins, starfish and other live marine life. The bikes, kayaks, floaties and stuff are included in the hotel price. Will definitely go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this hotel as a last minute because I wanted to have a nice day on the beach with my family. For a 3 star hotel it was little bid overpriced but otherwise I had a good time. Parts of the resorts were going through remodeling during my stay, but workers were very considering of your vacation, no noise at all. Our 2 bedroom condo was very comfy […] and family friendly.
