This is a large resort with multiple room arrangements from a standard room to three bedroom condos. There are actually two very different sections of the resort. The photos on the website mix the two so when booking be sure you know exactly which one you are booking. We thought we had booked in the large building on Tampa Bay,... More

The best part of this resort is the covered water view tiled balcony off the bedroom. The resort is in trouble and you can see it if you look down; the carpets are really stained compared to the nice large condos with full kitchen; the bed was very small and between two closets??? The staff will tell you a different... More

We are currently staying here - a one week stay. In-laws live in Ruskin and there were not a lot of choices nearby. Cons - First off, the Harborside Suite is not a suite. There is a small partition between the bed and pull out bed/couch. Not ideal for a 7 year old that goes to bed earlier than us.... More

This was our second trip to the "Resort and Club" and it will most likely be our last. We were able to book a junior suite using Orbitz. Once we arrived at the hotel we were told there is now a $8 resort fee per day. It clearly still says on Orbitz site resort fee is included in the final... More

Nice quiet place, with a good restaurant. Due to availability, we received a free upgrade to a one bedroom suite with king bed +sofa bed in separate living room and kitchenette: that was a nice surprise upon arrival! The sofa bed was not prepared, but room service came immediately to do it. Pros: bathrobe in addition to towels; good restaurant;... More

My four year old grandson, daughter and my husband and myself stayed here for five nights. The suite that we had made reservations for had only one bed and a pull out couch, which we were suppose to have two beds.

This place was great, right on tampa bay, great food at the restaurant, lots of things to do. It is however in the middle if nowhere. A car is a must. 30 to 40 min to Tampa, St Pete's, shopping etc. There is a nice, small private beach, full marina.

Found this gem from vbro.com. It is cheaper there than the main website. Room clean,fully stocked new kitchen. Sunset grill food was awesome. Only drawback is there is not a lot of local things to do but if you are here just to relax and not do a lot of sightseeing then this is a perfect spot. Will defiantly return

Little Harbor is a great, quiet place for a get-away. It's off the beaten path and perfect for a relaxing week or weekend get-away. Stayed in the Junior Suites, facing the river. Room was very clean, quiet with a kitchenette on ground floor. Was disappointed that the closest pool & bar were out of commission, but there were others available.... More
