Sundial beach resort and spa was a good location on Sanibel. You must request ocean front at this location. They have a lot of rooms but not many have the views you pay for. The rooms are nice, but the beds and couches leave something to be desired. The bed was absolutely the hardest bed I have ever slept on. The air conditioning even when turned low did not cool the room enough for sleeping comfortably. The pool was constantly crowded so we never used the pool. The beach was very nice and they always had beach chairs set up for your convenience. They left bags in your rooms to collect shells which was nice. The room was very clean, the grounds were nicely kept, and the staff seemed friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay, but we had issues regarding a room change just so we could see the ocean. Definitely call and check where your room is ahead of time. Sundial was nice but not really worth the price we paid in my opinion.

Very good location of the property facing the ocean. Staff at the front desk and activities counter was very helpful and they have good resturant options on the property. However, condos at Sundial resort needs lot of repairs. Condition of the bathroom in my condo was terrible, bathroom sink, towel rack, shower heads everything needed reapirs while i was staying for 3 nights. They need to better maintain the property in order to charge $400 plus per night for this condos.
