Blah Vacation
Sanibel overall is a boring place to vacation and Sundial had the rudest guests staying there. The hotel and staff were ok but just the overall experience was definitely not worth the money. I will not be returning.

Great location. Overall very pleased. Poor Wi-fi.
Overall very pleased with stay. Sea Breeze Cafe was short on help several evenings causing long waits to be seated and receive menus. Food was great and wait staff was great as well. Rated 4 rather than 5 due to very poor Wi-fi in Building C.

Sundial Sanibel - mid-January 2018
We found several minor maintenance issues - toilet flapper ball worn, kitchen outlet not working, etc. - but room was very comfortable and made our stay very enjoyable. Pools are heated and were very comfortable for swimming. Pool/beach staff were friendly, competent and always willing to help. Ciin-operated laundry very economical, but laundry sink (on 2nd floor) had no running water. Overall, an excellent stay but property needs to improve on minor maintenance.

Wish we could have stayed longer
Sundial was the perfect place for our family of four to experience the beauty of Sanibel Island. Right on the beach with multiple pools and numerous activities. Easy access to the rest of the island. The property is nicely landscaped and the pools have tons of chairs, outdoor showers and changing rooms. The beach is wonderful! However, it is important to note that this is a large condo complex. In keeping with the natural, low-key feel of Sanibel, it is quiet and serene. Very little light pollution so the night skies are amazing, but can be hard to navigate the property at night. Not a problem for us, but worth noting. The kitchen had all of the necessities to prepare and eat breakfast, after a quick trip to the market. Since we were only on the property for one night, we didn't get to take full advantage of the screened porch or the other amenities. The front desk staff was incredibly accommodating and helpful. We will be back...
