Rooms and hallways really outdated! Air conditioner old and tired--couldn't get room cooler than 78 degrees. Very old (20 year old) TV that didn't work properly, closet door came off its track, mounds of dust behind the lattice headboard.

We stayed here at the recommendation of a business acquaintance. We were looking for something for 2 days that wasn't terribly expensive cause we were going to be busy with business rather than needing amenities. I got an executive suite with a gulf view for $136 a night. You could just barely see the gulf since it was across a... More

I do not write a lot of reviews but selected this location based on the reviews. My wife and I were looking for a long weekend getaway and this fit our needs and budget.

I stayed in building B with a harbor view. It was beautiful! We watched the manatees and dolphins swim in the harbor. The beach and pool were gorgeous. The staff is super friendly and helpful.

We stayed at 3220 Mangrove Pt in Little Harbor Resort in June 2014 for 1 week. Very nice, roomy, tastefully decorated townhouse. No issues with our rental at all. I would have liked to be closer to the beach and pool. Close grocery store but not real close to chain restaurants.

I took my 3 daughters on a "girls vacation" (ages 14, 18, 22) and we loved it! The room was beautiful, very clean, and in good condition. I made arrangements through a time-share program and was a little nervous about what we'd end up with. The confirmation said "no water view" but we were given a room with a balcony... More

My wife and I stay here once a year for a convention. The rates are always reasonable compared to this in the area right across the bay in Tampa. My only complaint is the money they hold on your credit card for "incidentals." If you're using a credit card, it's no problem. If you're using a debit card, good luck...... More
