Sundial Beach Resort & Spa Takes the Top in Poll for Best Bartender, Chef, Server

DATE: September 22, 2015

Nothing else matters. Not in this Sanibel Island paradise called Sundial Beach Resort & Spa. The food is fabulous, the service supreme, the drinks delicious.

This is the life – at least during your vacation stay at the Best Full-Service Resort at the southwestern edge of the Sunshine State, on the Gulf of Mexico – that, according to a recent reader poll.

We’re not the only ones proclaiming praise for Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, especially for having the best bartender, the best server and the best chef, although we’ve always known it ourselves.

Results from the recent Best of the Islands contest sponsored by Sanibel-Captiva Islander, a popular island newspaper focusing on local arts and entertainment, showed that Sundial Beach Resort & Spa guests held similar sentiments.

We place the efforts, artistry and talents of Chef Criss Menassa, server Eddie Beaubrun and bartender Abbie Sprouse on center stage for exemplifying the best and the finest in the business. We applaud their achievements and take pride in keeping our guests abreast of recent accolades from the public. They deserve the recognition for their hard work, their creativity and their willingness to go above and beyond for our guests.
