    Francesca should be your go-to!

    Francesca and her team did truly an amazing job with our wedding, from beginning to end! Communication was swift and there was never a time where one of our questions went unanswered. The day was absolutely beautiful and ran so smoothly with the help of the Sundial team! If you are looking for a beautiful venue, I 100% recommend Francesca and her team at Sundial Beach Resort and Spa.

    May 21st Wedding

    We toured and spoke with multiple wedding venues in the area and ultimately chose to go with the Sundial in large part, because of Francesca Giachetta. She was flexible, consultative, extremely prompt with follow-ups, and just FUN to work with! Day of, Francesca continued to be amazing! Many of our guests commented on how attentive and helpful she was to them. Guests also noted that she had a charismatic energy that was fun to interact with. Future brides - you will love Francesca!

    The customer service model of the Sundial is exceptional! Every staff member we interacted with, went out of their way to accommodate any request that we had no matter how big or small.

    We’re so happy with every aspect of our wedding weekend and day!

We love this beautiful resort, and enjoy photographing the precious moments of their guests for their weddings or portrait sessions. Definitively the resort to consider for your next escapade in Southwest Florida!

The Sundial is a fantastic wedding venue. Its recent remodel has taken it to another level. It is one of the few resorts on Sanibel with its own amenities including restaurants, bars and a spa. The roof top patio has a view to die for. Tiffany Onischuk the coordinator is very detail oriented, super friendly and a true professional. She will make your wedding dreams come true!

The Sundial has just been remodeled and is having even more wonderful touches made to make it a hit for a beach front wedding venue! The ballroom over looks the Gulf of Mexico and has a huge deck for guest to gather. The team at the Sundial work very hard to assure that the wedding day is a memorable one! No detail is missed and the staff is wonderful to work with. Marina is very organized and is there from early morning until the last guest has left the party that evening. I absolutely endorse the Sundial for a Beautiful Gulf Front Wedding Venue!
