We recently stayed at the Inn side of Little Harbor and were very satisfied with the accomodations. Our room was very clean, though our maid never showed up to make up our room on Sunday. However, she was there every other day and the room was always clean. The Tiki Bar is great, good food, good people and great entertainment....

Jamie, thank you for your review, we are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the amazing views across Tampa Bay and soaked up some sun on the beach. I am afraid that noseeums and mosquitos are quite unfriendly at this time of year in Florida and we have just fogged the resort to keep them as under control as possible....

We enjoyed our three night stay. When we were there this March, they were doing updates to one of the pools and putting in new steps to a building next to the tennis courts. The courts are nice, and my family enjoyed playing tennis every morning. The gym in the resort part of the hotel is nice with up to...

This place could be so much better. We stayed on our first night in their hotel rooms. The carpet and bed cover were a disgrace covered in stains. The room was dark and quite dingy. Thank goodness it was only for one night. Then we moved into a three bed, three bath condo opposite the marina. The views were lovely....
