Beautiful 3br/2ba condo with an ocean view. Perfect for our family vacation. 6 adults and 1 child and we were totally comfortable. Love this place, it was our third time staying here and we will keep coming back.

Rooms are very old versus what they show online - at least ours was. Many things in room were not functioning well. You pay for location and resort activities for kids which were nice but still doesn't seem worth the price.

This was our fourth time coming back to the Sundial and it keeps getting better and better. New pool slide was the hit for my 3 year old Grandson. We booked a 3 bedroom condo for 6 adults and 1 child and it was perfect. The condo was well appointed and we had housekeeping service everyday. The staff at the...

This was our 3rd time to stay at the Sundial. It is very family oriented. Our room had a kitchen so we didn't have to eat out if we were tired from spending a day on the beach. It is on Middle Gulf Drive so you don't get all the traffic of the main road. There is a small grocery...

The Amenities could not have been better. More than ever the Gluten Free options on the menu for my daughter who has Celiac was...

This was our second time staying in the Sundial. We stayed here two years on vacation as well. We loved our time at the resort, the pools and the immediate beach access. Our kids have already requested a return trip

There are benefits to Sundial , they allow for less than a 7 day stay required by many other condos. Their check in for early arriving guests could use improvement . Wait until 4 pm to access the condo was a LONG day . we attempted to use their restaurant & were never served after our dink order was taken....
