We stayed in February 2017 for a week. We had a 2 bedroom oceanfront unit near the main building. It was expensive but an amazing unit! Wrap-around porch and had recently been totally remodeled. We didn't really eat food at the resort because it was expensive and we cooked in our condo. The pool area is so nice and great...

As much as i love Sanibel, and will most likely return sometime in the future, I Jane to say i was disappointed with the sundial resort rooms. The shiwer had back mold in it. The toilet was not functioning properly and kept draining all night. The bathroom fan was rattling, and the toilet paper holder was constantly falling apart. When...

It was our first trip to the sundial, and it was a great one. The bikes were old and worn down. We went on a bike ride to the lighthouse and one of the bikes broke. After a short phone call, they brought us a new bike on the spot! Staff was great, especially Allen.

Our two bedroom condo had stunning views of the ocean and a wonderful wraparound balcony that led right to the beach. Very peaceful and serene! The front desk was helpful and friendly.
