  • Our wedding was located on the lawn facing the gulf and it was absolutely gorgeous. The reception hall is a bit outdated with shorter ceilings but nonetheless beautiful. I was a bit disappointed that I had to ask the pool attendants to turn off the pool music as I was seconds away from walking down the aisle because I couldn't hear our wedding music - so make sure you work that out with the wedding coordinator prior!

    Our Gulf front lawn is the perfect ceremony setting! We’re so glad that you agree. Sundial offers several reception locations including ballrooms and outdoor sites. All of our ballrooms have been renovated since your reception over a year ago, and feature elegant finishes. Our outdoor lawn sites are separated from the pool area by hedges and are not next to speakers, however we are always happy to turn them off to accommodate a bride’s wishes. Thank you and we wish you a happily ever after!

  • I don’t even know where to begin to describe how perfectly everything went from our contract negotiations to having to say goodbye after the wedding. Tiffany is the catering and events manager and much more. From always answering emails to scheduling phone calls with us just to check in to see if there is anything we needed, even six months out, was a blessing. She was around all day long and even came into the salon to check on me while I was getting my hair done! This place is GORGEOUS! We had a sunset ceremony on the beach with 50 guests. The arch was beautiful on its own though I had it decorated as well. My maid of honor was facing the sun and was blinded during the entire ceremony but luckily our ceremony was literally eight minutes so she didn’t suffer long. I suggest asking them to set up the ceremony pointed more south, then the sun wouldn’t be smackdab in someone’s. Fortunately, my husband is tall so I was able to position myself in his shadow.

  • My husband and I just got married at the Sundial last month. When we booked a year ago, it wasn't much of a consideration because we knew so little about it and hadn't heard any recent reviews. We are SO glad we took the time to make the visit to Sundial. From our first meeting with Alicia, we knew this would be the perfect place to get married. She helped us picture our wedding as it would be. From then on, we worked with her, David, and Tiffany, who along with the rest of the Sundial Staff, provided the best possible place to say our vows and celebrate with our friends and family! We had a beautiful ceremony on the beach, followed by cocktail hour on the beach, with dinner and dancing upstairs. The site was beautiful, the food was perfect, and as a destination bride, Alicia and her team handled everything, so that I was able to relax. They communicated with all the vendors on the island, and created an incredibly beautiful, and fun day and evening. The staff was attentive and ... Read more

  • My husband and I visited multiple resorts on Sanibel and Captiva Islands when looking for a venue for our destination wedding. We decided on Sundial for multiple reasons: 1. My husband and his family used to vacation on Sanibel Island for many years. Sundial was where my husband would spend his days at the pool, on the beach, in the game room, and the fitness room. 2. Sundial was on Sanibel Island which was a shorter commute for our guests that were traveling from nearby Fort Myers and Naples. 3. Sundial's ceremony and reception locations were within close proximity to each other. 4. Although the prices weren't inexpensive, they were considerably better than some of the other resorts on the Islands. With that said, I am confident that Sundial was the perfect place for my husband and I to say our vows. The guest rooms were clean and spacious. The ammenities were reasonably priced and plentiful. The staff was responsive and helpful. I worked with Maria Palma to coordinat... Read more

  • We had our wedding and reception at the Sundial and everything went smoothly. The staff was very attentive and organized toward me and my guests. My coordinator there was helpful and nice. The rooms given to us were clean and beautiful. Overall, my guests and I really enjoyed ourselves! The only complaint I have is that at the end of the reception I forgot to take my veil and sand vase from the sand ceremony. When I realized the next morning that I did not have them, I asked the hotel and coordinator. No one could find them and I never got them back. I'm assuming someone threw them out? That really disappointed me since they were both valuable to me.

  • The venue for the ceremony was breathtaking and was everything I envisioned. The table placements for the dinner were not correct after going over the day before and was told transportation from my room to the beach was included. When the taxi ended up dropping us off she asked for money? I then was greeted by a staff member who then said don't worry we will take care of. Only minor details but overall everything went off wonderfully and couldn't of asked for anything more .

  • We chose Sundial after gathering information about a number of "resort" venues and making a visit to a few on our first Wedding Planning trip to Sanibel. While it seemed like our wedding coordinator was slow to respond to our emails/questions at times, the resort was overall a pleasure to work with. They allowed us to be flexible with our menu, room setups (especially given the weather), and arrangements for guests. Overall the experience was positive and will be detailed in great length as we complete our wedding website at http://www.mysanibelwedding.com. Feel free to contact us if you have questions!

  • The day of my wedding was smooth and beautiful. The food was delicious (but overpriced) and my guests and I were well taken care of during the reception. However, the days leading up to and 3 months after were stressful and somewhat awful. It was a destination wedding so we were far from the location, and my emails full of questions took a while to get returned and my questions were never all answered. I had asked for a total the week before the wedding to be prepared for payment when we arrived, however I never received it until we got to the hotel two days prior to the ceremony. I was reassured then that our final bill included everything and we left after the wedding with the confidence that we paid in full. Then THREE MONTHS LATER I received an invoice in the mail for costs that were "overlooked" that added up to over $3,000! How does that much money just get "overlooked"? Needless to say, I was very disappointed in their punctuality and professionalism. If I had to do it all over ... Read more
