Could not say more about the staff and the food and the beautiful beach location! It is clean, the staff is super friendly and helpful and cheerful and the sushi and breakfast buffet are all delicious. The free bikes are great so long as you get up in time to get the right size for everyone in your family. My...

There is nothing good to say. It's a huge timeshare. Sure some rooms may have a view but our looked at someones towels hanging from their balcony. The reservation promised a water view. They were rude. The air conditioner didn't work and the room was in the 90's. It took hours to have us moved. It's horrible and they were...

We had a 2 bedroom & 2 bathroom apartment on the ground floor. Lots of space and a full kitchen and huge fridge. We only stayed 2 nights but would have been happy here for 2 weeks. We used the pool which was near our room rather than the main resort pool. The reserving of sun beds at the main...

We've stayed here multiple times over the years, most recently in April. We had a three bedroom condo and stayed for about 5 days. The condo was very comfortable and well appointed. The resort includes a lot of amenities - pools, beach chairs/umbrellas, bikes, tennis - and there are a few restaurants on the property. There is a main pool,...

Our daughter got married at Sundial and most of our guests were from out of town so they stayed at the resort from 3-6 nights. Our guest thoroughly enjoyed staying at the resort with all the fun amenities and great restaurants. They didn't have to leave the resort at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Tiffany did a...

See above. Overall good experience. Pros: Location, nice rooms, good staff front desk and grocery. Clean. Cons: Beach and pool staff not available, not enough beach chairs/umbrellas, pool bar staff never took the time to wait on us despite 3 patient attempts.

We have stayed many times before, and its always been great. Our recent visit we stay in 1 very expensive 3 bedroom unit. We had raved about this resort, brought along long time friends (husband and wife). We found a dirty kids sock in the closet and empty candy containers behind the tv stand in a bedroom.

This is an excellent facility. It is clean, and the staff is well trained in providing quality service. The beach is one of the nicest in FL, best known for its shelling. The breakfast buffet was well presented and the omelet and egg station well staffed.

We chose this resort based on reviews by Trip Adviser and other on-line resources. We opted for a one-bedroom condo. It was on the bottom floor with the lanai facing a landscaped green space. Although we were unable to obtain a beach front condo this was very comfortable space-wise. There were occasional footsteps to be heard from the unit above...
