Sundial Beach Resort & Spa
Ranked #6 of 20 Hotels in Sanibel Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Do not believe the pictures of the room as they are not accurate. The beach is lovely and the main pool and eco center are great for kids. As a Florida resident I was expecting an amazing stay though there were some things that hindered that.

My favorite new beach getaway! Met with friends to celebrate my b-day weekend. Room was spacious and comfortable. Love the idea of having a kitchen in the room! Got more than I bargained for. Love it!

Usually great stay, but this year's room was less then average on cleanliness....;-( Huge cockroach and floor was filthy, rushed to clean, and black mold in shower. Room needed some upkeep. However resort itself is great and we would still visit as we have over the last 4 years.

This is the third year in a row that we ,as a family, have spent the 4th of July long weekend at the SunDial. We all love it. The rooms are lovely and the staff friendly. We can't wait to come back next year.

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at Sundial and would definitely like to return. The place was clean, well cared for & I love the amenities included in the price. I also love that it's beachfront & the price was very good.

We enjoyed our vacation at the sundial resort. This is a great place for families with children of all ages. The only thing preventing us from returning was the inability to place all of our group in the same building. We requested to be located by each other and ended up having our group in 4 different buildings.

Everything was lovely. The only exception was that the WiFi was very slow, making it nearly impossible for me to check in with work (Yes, I have to check in even on vacation.) That added a bit of stress to the trip, but other than that, we loved it.
