My husband and I have stayed at Little Gull a number of times. We like quiet days lounging on the sand or walking the beach. Euphemia Hayes is a good restaurant nearby, but we often take the short drive to St. Armand's Circle to do a little window shopping and dine.

I came here with my wife & kids for Thanksgiving last year. It was our first time travelling to the western side of Florida. We quickly realized what we'd been missing, as Little Gull offered the beauty of the beach and coast without the tourists and crowding. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and everything... More

Little Gull is Paradise. Its is a wonderful place to just close out the rest of the world and relax. And I mean relax. Every morning we had our coffee on the beach then walked along collecting shells. Being August it was not the tourist season so it was almost like having a private beach. Few thunder storms at night... More

This resort truly has everything you could ever want...a tropical beach, multiple grills, a wonderful pool, game room, laundry facilities, playground, and a boat dock for those travelling with a vessel. It is located on Longboat Key and from the moment you drive in, you are winding through a quaint brick street surrounded by shade trees. Mother nature abounds, with... More

An awesome place with the real Florida lifestyle. Everyone in our family lives on the ocean in different parts of Florda already, but we come back every single year to Little Gull to "get away." It's quiet, not overloaded with tourists, friendly staff, and close to fantastic nightlife. The beach is perfection, and the rooms are the perfect balance of... More

I had to come back again to rave over this place, even though I don't usually do multiple reviews of establishments. I think these people know exactly what it means to need a vacation, and not one in a sterile environment with no attention to livability. It feels like home here. We come once a year if possible, but had... More

My family and I spent a week at Little Gull in June. We had a very nice time. The facilities are really nice and the beach is lovely. The BBQs work very well. The pool is clean and warm. Just be sure to bring some bug spray. I would recommend Little Gull to anyone interested in staying on Longboat Key.... More
