We had a bug issue which was met with quick action by the staff but some of the common areas need updating...the rug to the second floor is REALLY dirty....the pool area's location right next to the waterway is quite pleasant.... the additional "resort" fee...

When you book this be aware that there is two hotels at the Resort & Club at Little Harbor. One is like a motel and the other is full blown suites. Make sure your booking is for the yacht club suites because when we got there we found out we were in the smaller adjacent hotel and it wasn't very... More

We stayed here from August 13-August 20th, 2016 through Global Vacations. We paid the extra for the Harbor View. It was very beautiful. The pools were clean and warm. We visited the beach on Tampa Bay but the kids didn't enjoy it because it was full of seaweed. We did take advantage of the water sports available at the resort.... More

This meant the marina/fishing, beach, multiple pools, tennis courts, shuffle board, basketball court and two restaurants. There was a store on the property to buy general items but it was... More

Our family group booked various accommodations for my nieces wedding last weekend. We had single rooms at the Inn, 3BR/3BA huge condos and 2 bedroom suites. All were exceptionally nice. The rooms were clean, quiet and well-appointed. We spent time at the Tikki Bar, ate at the Sunset Grill and found the staff friendly, enthusiastic and the food excellent. Pools,... More
