  • We held our wedding at Sundial this past weekend and the entire event was nothing short of amazing! Our wedding coordinator Tracy was wonderful- from the start of our planning process, through to the day of, she was extremely professional, responsive, and helpful. We had a few last minute changes to our wedding day and Tracy went above and beyond to make sure that everything ran smoothly and that it was the perfect day for us. Her attention to detail, positive personality, and true passion for wedding planning did not go unnoticed. The event and wait staff were wonderful as well- attentive to everything that was going on during our wedding day and providing impeccable service. Everything about the event far exceeded our expectations. Each one of our wedding guests complimented us on how beautiful our wedding day was and how much they enjoyed their stay at Sundial. My husband and I will certainly be returning to Sundial for future vacations, as will many of our friends and family. I hig... Read more

  • Overall, the Sundial Beach Resort and Spa did a fantastic job at hosting our wedding. We could not have asked for more diligent, thorough service and help throughout the entire process. The resort is beautiful, and rooms are very nice and have a diverse selection for different numbers of guests attending your wedding. We had our wedding in the West Lawn and it was beautiful. The lawn has a great view of the water but added privacy from the beach. The reception in the Lace Murex Lawn was also wonderful. Based on our wedding size, we had ample room to eat, dance and socialize in the lawn. Tracey Snyder, the Catering Sales Manager, was very professional, kindhearted and helped us make our wedding day very special and unforgettable. She was very easy to work with and always responded to our inquiries leading up to our wedding. We enjoyed working with her and know you will be in very good hands with Tracey as the main coordinator for your wedding. The banquet team (Tony from Philadelphia... Read more

  • Sundial Beach Resort and Spa is hands down the best decision we could've made when it came to choosing our wedding venue. We used Lavender Yi as our catering and event manager, and she was absolutely amazing. She made our wedding planning process a breeze, and was available every step of the way to answer any questions or concerns we had (even when we had to postpone our wedding due to COVID-19). On our wedding day she was right there for every moment, and when it came time for rain call and we unfortunately we're expecting to get rained out, Lavender knew our dream was for an outdoor beach wedding, and she made it happen! She was so flexible with moving our event time to avoid the rain, and provided umbrellas for our ceremony and for our reception area. Sundial provided a beautiful beach wedding ceremony setup, as well as reception area on the Lace Murex lawn - everything was stunning! Every employee was so kind and helpful, and our time we spent at the resort before and after the wed... Read more

  • We had our welcome dinner at Sundial and it was amazing! We did a fun taco cantina themed dinner out on Turtle Beach. Lavender was AMAZING to work with. She was incredibly responsive and had our best interests in mind. The food and facilities were great. We highly recommend having an event at Sundial resort and working with Lavender!

  • My now-husband and I are from out-of-state, and we booked our wedding at Sundial -- and planned everything -- without being able to visit until the day before. I don't think it could have turned out any better even if we had visited! Working with Tracy Snyder to put together our wedding at Sundial was such a simple and stress-free process. She was very responsive and flexible, and seemed to have solutions for everything! The West Lawn is a beautiful spot for a ceremony, and the Lace Murex Lawn was just what we had envisioned for an intimate outdoor reception. I think they say that you know it's going well when you realize you haven't worried about any of the small details. The evening flew by so I hardly had the time to think about all the details that had mattered during the planning process, but after we got our pictures it was clear that Tracy and the staff had gotten everything just as we had wished. Shoutout to the several resort staff who were so helpful and kind -- for helping m... Read more

  • The resort and food were great! Lavender, the wedding coordinator, was so quick to respond to every email and call. She made the whole process a breeze and accommodated all of my wishes for our wedding. I cannot day enough good things about her and the staff. The spot on the beach was great and the lawn the reception took place on was beautiful (one of my favorite parts) THANK YOU LAVENDER!!! ❤️Spud and Peyton Matuszak

  • Highly recommend Sundial for weddings. Everything was perfect! We had most our guest coming from out of town and it was the perfect location that had anything you would need and something for all ages! I would recommend brides to get a 3 bedroom suite the night before the wedding so it can also be your “getting ready” room with your bridesmaids. It was just the right amount of room for everyone to have space for hair and makeup. Although all the staff at Sundial were amazing, Tracy the wedding coordinator made our day perfect! She is very helpful, extremely responsive and attentive to anything you need prior to the wedding and during the entire wedding weekend.

  • The staff at the Sundial were friendly and were willing to go the extra mile to make our day as perfect as possible. Lavender, the Catering Manager, was kind and professional, only wanting to make sure our day (and stay) was the best it could be. She worked with our budget and went above and beyond our expectations. We had a small ceremony and reception of 11 total and the beautiful Sundial resort and beach scenery complimented the whole event beautifully. The only downside was having to go back home. We will be back to celebrate our anniversary and to bring our families for years to come!

  • Our wedding at Sundial on 04/20/19 couldn't have gone better. Ashley was the absolute best to work - professional, calming, intelligent, and good at her job. When we began the wedding venue selection process it was a daunting task but as soon as I heard from Ashley I knew Sundial was the place we would get married. My husband and I live in Charlotte, NC so most of our planning was done through email. Ashley was quick to respond and answer questions for me. We were able to customize a menu based off what WE wanted which was a joy. We finally got to tour the venue in February when we came into town for a vendor visit and pictures don't do this place justice. The entire property is breathtaking - natural beauty. The beach, lawn, and indoor reception rooms were so gorgeous, and elegant. There was so much about wedding planning that I didn't know (timeline, bridal party order, etc) Ashley was so patience and accommodating with us. The day of our wedding the weather was so perfect. ... Read more

  • Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, Tracy, we cannot thank you enough for a once in a life time Wedding experience at Sundial! Everything about the resort gave our guests the destination feel, and even us living in Fort Myers felt as though we were somewhere far far away! With everything being a short walk to the beach, the bikes, kayaks, paddle boards, pools, and volleyball net lended endless amounts of fun for everyone! Not only was all the food, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to die for, but the service was amazing as well. The whole overall persona that Sundial emits cannot be beat! Our wedding could not have been any more gorgeous, with the lights and stairs above us, our guests having a blast dancing in the sand! We could not have asked for a better venue! Literally a once in a life time experience thank cannot be beat! Everyone was so sad to leave! Tracy, you went above and beyond anything I could have asked for and am so very thankful to have had you to coordinate everything at Sundial!... Read more

  • We had our wedding in November 2020 at the Sundial and it was amazing. Our guests raved about the food, as well as the exceptional service that they received during our reception. One of our favorite aspects about the resort was that we were able to hold all of our events outdoors, including our reception and open dancing portion where our guests loved dancing barefoot in the sand under the palm trees and stars. We also found that the resort was great for bringing people together, as all of the events happened onsite and it was easy to meet up at the tiki bar or the main pool to socialize. Lastly, there were a great deal of activities that the resort offers, so we never felt like we had to entertain everyone that traveled and stayed multiple nights for our wedding. If the review above convinced you to inquire about having your wedding at the Sundial, know that you will be in great hands with Lavender Yi (Catering Sales Manager). Lavender was everything we could ask for in a planner/... Read more

  • There are some things I loved about this venue and some things I think could definitely be improved upon. Pros: Our planner was so very responsive to my five million questions and very friendly with each response; The venue was gorgeous; The price was very reasonable (we went with Sanibel Dreams) and included chairs, tables, arch, set up, take down, cocktails, dinner, service, and a honeymoon room (for meeting a minimum # of guest plates), the cake, basic centerpieces; We were surprised with chocolate covered strawberries, a little gift, and a bottle of wine in our honeymoon suite that night Cons: Didn't provide any space in which to get ready for the day unless you booked hotel rooms there (which we didn't); I had to ask so many questions - very little information was provided up front - I had to know what questions to ask; Didn't include floral arrangements, set up or take down of personal items we brought or rented (extra centerpiece decorations, aisle runner, ceremony decorati...

  • The rooms are all individually owned condos, so they are all decorated differently and you never know what you are going to get or how clean it will be. Most of them are also a long way from the venues, so getting there in a wedding dress was ridiculous especially since our wedding coordinator was MIA the entire time and wasn’t answering the phone. She forgot about rehearsal and had already gone home by the time it was supposed to start. The rooms are quite expensive for what you get. It’s cheaper to reserve rooms through their regular site than the ‘special discount rate’ they promise. We paid for a one bedroom, but they gave us a studio, claiming it was a one bedroom (the owner had altered it, removing the doors). Most of our guests were very disappointed at the room quality vs the crazy cost. The salon was horrible. I’m glad I did a trial, because a beauty school would have been better. The person they gave me was completely untrained and lazy. I could and did do a better... Read more

  • We are a couple from Wisconsin. Three of our immediate family members are teachers and limited to Spring Break season. Costs were high this time of year, but Sundial was the most reasonable! Not only were they reasonable, but, the venue was amazing and the staff was AWESOME! Everyone was extremely friendly and Tiffany took care of all our concerns. We hadn't been to Sanibel Island before, but I can assure you, this location didn't disappoint. We had a most perfect day. We're not planning on it....but if we had to get remarried, we'd do it at Sundial all over again!
