We stayed here (Myself, mother, ten y/o niece and four y/o nephew) for two nights and were very impressed. We found the staff to be wonderfully helpful and courteous.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was very comfortable and roomy and the staff was courteous and more than ready to help. With just a few updates this could really be a perfect getaway for families. We will be back but next time bring our boat!

Enjoyed our night at Little Harbor. It's a little beach but not a lot of people were on it. Dinner at the restaurant was very good. The restaurant wasn't air conditioned which made the dinning miserable. For the prices of the food they should have air condition. The band at the tiki bar was good but it was like a...
