Vote Sundial Beach Resort & Spa THE BEST OF THE ISLANDS in the Islander Newspaper Contest

DATE: July 21, 2015

Even Ernest Hemmingway would have voted for Sundial Beach Resort & Spa for Best Full Service Resort. Stretching along the quiet coastline of Florida’s Gulf– on the Sunshine State’s southwestern end – this gentle oasis possesses all the wonders and splendor of a tropical paradise.

This is the place to come – to find respite, to soothe the soul, to just have some good, salty fun at water’s edge: Sundial Beach Resort & Spa.

The Sanibel-Captiva Islander, a popular island newspaper focusing on local arts and entertainment, is hosting its annual contest to determine the top readers’ choices. Sundial Beach Resort & Spa is entering in the following categories: Best Full Service Resort, Best Happy Hour and Best Tennis Courts.

Readers who have passed through the Sundial Beach experience have the opportunity to vote for our resort – the old-fashioned way. Ballots will appear only in the newspaper (not online) and completed ballots have to be either mailed in or brought to the newspaper office located at 2340 Periwinkle Way in the Village Shops. The ballots will publish today and July 29.

Sundial Beach Resort & Spa won the newspaper’s Best Full Service Resort the last two years. We’re confident – with Sundial’s many amenities and superb scenery – we can win in all three categories, but especially Full Service Resort.

Here’s why we are the best:


Our guests never have to leave this self-contained resort:

  • Three restaurants (two bars) with al fresco and Gulf front dining
  • Live entertainment
  • Five pools and Jacuzzi
  • One mile of pristine shell-strewn beach front
