Sundial Beach Resort and Spa Review

Renovated in 2013 to the tune of $5 million, Sanibel's largest resort encompasses 400 privately owned studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom low-rise condo units, about half of which are in its rental program. The gulf-front conference facilities attract groups, but families return each year for the seashell slide at the main pool (there are six pools in all) and the numerous onsite amenities. Watersport rentals, tennis, volleyball, a game room, kids' camp, and an Eco-Center keep everyone busy. New to the lineup is the Spa at Sundial and several onsite dining venues.

    Hotel Details

  • 184 1-, 2, and 3-bedroom units (varies according to rental program participants)
  • Rate includes no meals.

    Rooms can be a crap shoot & no sunsets

    Since each unit is privately owned and decorated, they all very different. We looked at several before committing to one even though we made our reservations on a travel site. The unit that we finally settled on was newly renovated and really nice except for the bedspread which looked like it was from 1982. Photos on the site look like all the units were professionally designed, however the reality is that each unit is different and could be really fab or really drab. Grounds look great but ask what day groundskeeping will be there or else risk noise all day long. Five pools that are not very crowded and the beach has great shelling. The resort's beach faces south so if you want to see the sunset you have to drive to a west facing beach like Bowman's Beach about 10 minutes away.
