We stayed at the Sundial and visited Turtle's Beach & Pool Bar a few times. Friendly service, great drinks, right by the beach.

Rarely missed a happy hour on our 10 day vacation! Bartenders were awesome and the drinks were so so good! Good location-caught the breeze. Met lots of nice people from around the country.

We loved this Tiki bar! Great drinks, and a nice selection of beers (domestic, imported and craft). We were happy to see Cigar City on tap. The food was good and the service was excellent. Go see Mike he was personable and attentive. Two thumbs up!

Stopped in at Sundial for access to the beach after lunch. Standard pub food & beer. We are always looking for organic and grass fed beef, and didn't have much luck here. Nice secret access to Sanibel beaches! Not overly impressed with overall resort though.
