My wife and I recently spent 4 days (3 nights) at this resort. We had a wonderful time and found everything to be top notch. The restaurant was wonderful, we saw manatees in the harbor, went kayaking, sat on the beach with our books and relaxed.

Little Harbor is tucked away right on Tampa Bay with a beautiful view of St. Pete. We stayed at The Resort & Club at Little Harbor for 2 nights in June. The one bedroom condo with a full kitchen in the newer building was lovely!! The sunset from our balcony was beautiful and a perfect place to relax and enjoy.... More

I stayed at this resort as a member of the Travel Advantage Network, so I can't speak to the cost of the stay as it was a pre-purchased week at a fraction of the advertised price. What I can speak to is the beauty, tranquility, and excellence of the resort. The beach is beautiful, the amenities are quite sufficient and... More

Even though the set up was very nice (the marine) the resort is poorly maintained. The room was dirty at our arrival and the private beach looked ok but my husband and daughter swam there and got an ear infection! the hotel manager argued no compliants were made but swimming there was the only thing my husband and daughter did...

Nice complex with many amenities. Our room had a nice mini-kitchen so we could get fresh local foods and eat in when we chose (Morgan's fish, fruit & vegetable stand, The Fish House). Nice restaurants and beach bars on site. Local mom & pop diner, Granny's very close for a good breakfast. Laundry facilities on site was nice. Pool with... More

The check-in was so unfriendly and inconsiderate, we would have left if it would have not been we had paid in advance. It taught us to never book 2 nights together again at a place we had never been.
