"Welcome to SWFlorida"
Good resort that I have been going to for years. It is undergoing a massive upgrade which really should make it one of the premier properties on the island. The workout facilities had always been poor but now they have a new spa and are putting in a state of the art gym. Food has always been good and I am really looking forward to going back when the upgrades are complete in mid November.

"Renovation in progress!"
Stayed in October 2014. They had a huge renovation taking place which required the pool restaurant and bar to be closed. Noise was also disturbing as they were using jack hammers while we were trying to relax by the pool on Saturday. Other than that accommodations were nice and we had no complaints about the service. I would recommend checking the status of the renovations prior to booking!

"So so place:"
The advertisement onExpedia and Sundials website did not mention about the Arcade, workout area and such being under repair. Fold out couch and roll away bed very uncomfortable for my teenage sons. The ocean was loaded with jellyfish, but management did not mention this in their ALERT letter at check in. Only mentioned the no-see-ems bugs.

The Sundial Resort is getting an amazing facelift! We've been staying at the Sundial for years and couldn't be more excited about the transformation. We can't wait to go back. Love the new bar and restaurant! Best beach ever!!!

"Nice resort and beautiful beach"
Our stay was wonderful from beginning to end. The staff was very polite and friendly. The time we stayed was off season so we pretty much had the pool and the beach to ourselves. I do think that happy hour could have been a little better priced but was ok. Regular priced drinks were a little more than what I like to spend. We were also there during their remodeling phase, they are making a lot of really nice changes. Over all we enjoyed ourselves and would definitely go back. Would love to go back to see all the changes they made.

"relaxing weekend"
Rented G406 very nice unit. Comfortable beds and nicely decorated. Would have been nice if pool area had restrooms and somewhere to buy a cool drink. Know they are building something right now. Wifi is so so. Needs upgrading. Building needs more elevators but we really loved the beach. Front desk needs more help but the people ere nice. Would definitely go back again.

"Review of Stay"
We were very disappointed with our stay. We did not get a good night sleep either night because the bed creaked and made so much noise. The boxsprings had to be very old and should of been replaced. My baby kept waking up at night each time we would get up in the middle of the night because the box spring creaked so much which kept us up a lot also. I complained to the Manager at the front desk but they said they couldn't put a new mattress in so that wasn't a option. The only thing we could do was pack all of our stuff up and move to a different room upstairs and with a baby and all the stuff we had and were already settled in, that wasn't a option either. So we didn't get a good night sleep either night. Then there was the outlet in the bathroom that didn't work when my wife went to plug in and use her blow dryer. We had to call the front desk again to have someone come down to replace the outlet which threw our schedule off for the day because we had to wait a half hour for them to arrive and then spend time to fix it. Having them in our room was disturbing and awkward. We also had to have them bring a light bulb because the light was out in our room. And to top it off, when we went to check out the final day, they wanted to charge us $75.00 for the telephone usage in our room. On the expedia website, all room calls were included in our stay. The lady at the front desk was very rude trying to tell us it was there policy for us to pay for all calls.

"Benefit of the doubt for renovations"
Room was very clean but in need of a new sofas bed mattress and bedding. Housekeeping was not very attentive, we had to request towels and toilet paper several times during our 4 night stay. Bring your own beverages as the bar service was very pricey and weak. Beaches are great, great shelling and wonderful at sunset. There are signs everywhere that say what not to do, no balls, frisbees, or games on the lawn, really! I hope the renovations improve the showers that did not work as you come off the beach to wash off the sand.

"Great for family vacation!"
Overall, we had a wonderful stay. Room was not big, basically two rooms with a sliding divider. Fine for a week with a small child but would get crowded for a family of four. Hotel was just starting renovations but did an excellent job of sheltering the guests as best as possible. Great location, easy to find anything on the island, clean rooms and easy access to beach, had bikes and kayaks on site. ONLY complaint is horrible WIFI access BUT they are in the process of fixing that with reno. They are aware of the issue.... but you are on vacation so step way from your email and enjoy the beach!

"Have been several times, but disappointed this tim"
Paid extra for coastal view and was on ground level and could not see the Gulf. The gym was closed for remodeling and the Saturday Buffet lunch was stopped as of Aug 1 without "any"notices anywhere. Things broke easily in the room. The master shower had no hot water and they said they would send an engineer to fix it but it was never fixed and we never heard about it from anyone. I don't go on vacation to babysit a broken shower! Then could not even get an extended check out. Very disappointed. Felt unfairly treated.

"Nice Location - Great Beach"
Sanibel Island is a great place to kick back. Sundial on the more expensive side is good but pool side service could be better. We ordered their hamburger which are good but expensive $12.00 each and had to wait 45 minutes for food to come. We could have stayed in the pool instead of sitting at the table. We had a two bedroom condo there and it was nice.

very nice for family vacation. kids loved it. the rooms in first floor corners have great wrap around terrace. the others are nice size too. the air-condition worked perfect. the areas around were very well kept. more umbrellas and lounge chairs would have been better bcs the hotel was full and no chairs by the time we went to the beach. great beach for shelling. the restaurant at the hotel had good food, little pricey but you don't have to leave anywere. keep in mind most of the places to eat at Sanibel close between 9-10. sad bcs the sun goes down so late if you want to enjoy until last minute then difficult to find somewere to eat. Check out the Sanibel Grill we found out is open til midnight!!!!! Already planning next trip there

"The little things"
I really enjoyed it, but there we a lot of little things that went wrong- Our phones didn't work in room- no ice in room, When we checked in was not informed the hours of the kayaking so didn't get to go because by the time we got our room they were closed- but we had 2 hrs of free time until then would have gone kayaking if known.. I like the fact that the kayaking and bike rental is included in your stay- very pretty, loved the island, beach and pool..

"Pay attention to the details..."
Hotel was great but be sure you read all the details. This hotel has a 4pm check in and and an 11am check out time (a 1 hour difference than most hotels). These times aren't real conducive for a 1 night stay. Also, don't plan on sleeping on the sofa beds or you wont be sleeping much. Otherwise, staff was friendly, everything was easy, facilities were very clean and fun. Free rentals for the beach was also a great perk!

"Nice resort with lots of amenities"
One BR unit with king bed was very nice. Included LCD TVs plus full kitchen with microwave, coffee maker and coffee packets. Free WiFi but poor signal made it very frustrating to use. Lobby, pools and beach were all nice. Beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, kayaks and coaster bikes were all included for no added cost. Only issue was location of room in "building C" which was a five minute walk from main pool and beach services. We paid extra for an ocean view room but had a mere sliver of a view from a long distance away. We felt cheated. When reserving at Sundial the location of the room is more important than the room description on Expedia.

"Sundial Resort - 5/29/2014"
We checked in on a Wednesday and although our room was on one of the ends of the property, we were still a 2 minute walk from the beach (2 min from leaving the room to hitting sand). The beach was nice and water was very comfortable. I think the thing that made this visit stand out for us was that it was very easy to go and ask for a bike or a kayak or towels. None of these cost anything extra and the staff was great. The bar was right near the pool and was very convenient and the generous 3 to 7 happy hour was nice as well. The happy hour basically turned $10 drinks into $5 drinks. There was a hot tub (although it was not really needed since the regular pool was quite comfortable) and in general the resort was very kid friendly. If you have very young kids up to the 9 and 11 year olds we have, this will be a great place to stay. There was a shell museum that was fun and nice inexpensive dolphin cruise available as well. Dolphins were hard to spot but we had a couple of nice moments. The cruise at sunset was so nice it didn't really matter if you saw any dolphins though. The complimentary trolley came at 6:26 and dropped us off around 9:20.

"Nice place with some problems"
The location of the Sundial is great -- right on the beach with easy access to other Sanibel Island attractions. We loved the layout and decoration of the room and the comfortable bed. Detractions included a tub that drained very slowly to the extent you were standing in six inches of water by the end of the shower. The staff at the recreation desk where we checked out bikes and made tennis reservation were very unhelpful, to the extent on a couple occasions it was a "this would be a great job without all these customers" type of attitude. The room was great and it's a nice facility, but lacked the superior customer service and maintenance one expects with accommodations of similar price.

What a nice place ! Location is perfect, right on the beach . Condo was clean, comfortable. Kitchen had all necessities. Private beach area with comfortable lounge chairs and umbrellas available at no charge. They set a bunch up in the morning and if they run out before you get there you just ask for additional and a staff member will bring them to you and set everything up. Did not use any of the pools but they did look very clean and well taken care of. Had breakfast at their restaurant and it was very good, as was the service. Also enjoyed their Happy Hour at both the pool Tiki Bar and the upstairs outdoor dining - very good half price drink options and excellent appetizers - We were sad to leave and are already planning our next trip back. The only complaint I have is there was no ice machine available and the front desk charges $4 for a bag.
