The pool area was great, activities for entertainment, we were always able to find chairs, the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

My wife and I went for a short getaway. We had a great time the facility is great. The beach and pools were nice and clean. Will go back with kids for sure.

Very accommodating staff. Clean property. Nice pools.

Everyone at the property was really nice. Breakfast was very good. The room was clean and had all the amenities one could need. The beach bar was fun with good food and drinks. My only complaint would be that the beach chairs and umbrellas are pretty tired looking and could use an update. Other than that, we really enjoyed it.

I liked that there were several pools around the property away from the main pool with all the children. We checked out but had a very late flight home....wish they had a shower facility that we could get cleaned up at after spending the rest of the day at the beach. While they had activities for the children, I wish they had something for adults also. The outside bar closes early.

This resort provided me and my family with many days of pure fun and relaxation. The ameneties on site (included in the resort fee) were amazing! There is something to do for guests of all ages! We used the bikes multiple days to get around the island, which made our trip much more peaceful than sitting in the car traffic like we had the previous year. Parking was very easy to find right by our condo. We also used the kayaks and found very beautiful shells in the sandbar. The staff was so welcoming and friendly, they always answered questions thoroughly and made us feel at home. We will, without a doubt, be returning to this resort!

A special thanks to Rebecca who made our visit to the Sundial an enjoyable experience! We will return to the Sundial in the future!

The amenities to include, bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas were wonderful. However these amenities did not offset the overall poor condition of our room. I am of the opinion that our room should have been repaired before our arrival. Upon arrival I had to have maintenance repair a broken toilet seat, re-hang the drapes that were coming off of the wall, mount a towel rack that was barely held in place by one wall mount. Additionally, there was no signal to the TV sets in the room. The maintenance person who made the repairs made the comment that the loss of a TV signal was a common occurrence. Most concerning was the bedroom. Our room had two full size beds as opposed to queen size beds. Each bed were placed up against a wall which in turn made it difficult for two people to get in and out of bed efficiently. To make matters worse my wife and I both left the Sundial with red welts on our bodies that we feel are the end results of bed bugs. In closing, once again the beach and room amenities were great. The location to nearby attractions to include restaurants and local points of interest were all positives but our room was less than enjoyable.

The condo was spacious for my family. I really liked the big pool. The other pools were basic and not really used. It was accurate to say they had 5 pools, but you'd likely only use one. It would be nice if the pools were different.

Well kept, quiet, wonderful beach front. Food is goid and plenty of chouces.

Don't like resort fees. Decay of mangroves or sewer gas prevalent.

This was my family’s first time here and we are determined to make this a more frequent destination! The Resort was perfect!

Excellent facilities. Free bikes, kayaks, and paddle boards. Beach front and close access to bike trails. Food selection on location was great. They even have a small gorcery store for convenience.

Activities were easy to access and fun for the kids (and grown ups too). Bike trails near by are fun to explore on the free bikes. The tennis instructor Chris gave an excellent lesson for kids- he kept them engaged and learning for the whole hour and they asked for another lesson the next day. Breakfast was good and the room was nice.

Loved it! Friendly staff and beautiful rooms! So family friendly also! Having young kids on vacation was perfect at SunDial Beach Resort!

We stayed in a beautiful one bedroom condo. Full kitchen, screened in balcony, beautiful views. Steps from the Gulf. Resort has 5 very clean pools, lots of activities, outside bar. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend!!
