We had come to the east bay area of Tampa for a music fest and the Resort at Little Harbor was the host hotel. What a wonderful place. This area of Florida is very rural so we were tremendously suprised at finding this first class resort. We stay in a Harborside studio overlooking the marina and the luxury pool area.... More

We read about Little Harbor in the Fromers Guide as a "find". Indeed it was, not much at all in Ruskin but the resort itself was just perfect. Great food at the Sunset Grille and so friendly and clean. Everyone made us feel very welcome. Would definitley go again and thoroughly recommend it.

I can't wait to return. The room was beautiful and very clean. I felt very secure and relaxed while a guest. The beach area is small with almost no shelling. We found a few land snails. Lots of places to fish. A nice place to relax, enjoy the sunset and BREATHE. No hustle and bustle here. My only negative is... More

We truly enjoyed our stay. Very nice resort if you want to be away from the spring break crowds at the Gulf beaches. It is secluded but we always felt safe. You feel like you're out in the middle of nowhere but it's a reasonable driving distance to Tampa, St. Petersburg and the Gulf beaches. We were glad we had... More

I have stayed at hundreds of hotels around the world and my experience with The Resort and Club at Little Harbor has to rate in the bottom 1%. I will give you the abbreviated version. Arrive at 4pm. Long line, 20 minute wait to check in. Rooms aren't ready. You can check in and we'll call when ready. No phone... More

Room had perfect view of the sunset, over marina and Tampa Bay - you could also see the lights from St. Petersburgh.. Service was very pleasant and helpful..felt like we knew everyone. Pool was perfectly heated even though it was a little cool out.. Several really nice restaurants in the area, but the Tiki bar is awsome in the evening.... More

After hours of wait for our reserved room, we were placed next to an elevator equipment room, hallway and ice machine! Room negotiations ensued and we were charged more for less after the exchange. Top it all off our credit card was extremely overcharged and we got an overdraft charge from our bank!

We decided to take a road trip to Little Harbor after a friend of the family recommended it. The studio condo we had on the 4th floor was GREAT (very clean and spacious) and we were fortunate enough to enjoy the New Years Eve fireworks right from our balcony! All of the staff (not just the front desk) is extreamly... More
