Third visit to this resort. Stayed 4 days in a one bedroom suite with a spectacular view of the marina and beach. Resort was full, so room cleaning was often late in the day, but adequate. Food quality and service at the restaurant/bar was superb, with reasonable pricing.

First the good news: lovely view of Tampa Bay and the city of Tampa. ( beware that you are on the east side of the bay). The buildings in this complex appear to be of decent design. Nice semi-Asian feel for room decor. Front desk is well handled with excellent staff. Now, the less than stellar parts: The construction is...

Housekeeping was spotty at best, not done well and not every day. Poorly thought out furnishings- salt & pepper shakers but they were empty, soap but no soap dish. The "barbecues" turned out to be two small hibachis. Supposed to be a resort but no gym, no hot tub, several pools closed & dirty. The linens and kitchen were fairly...

Stayed in a three bedroom unit in the condo portion of the resort. The unit was very spacious and has real potential, but.....the carpets were filthy and the furniture stained. Bathrooms, kitchen were clean but had only minimal dishes. Only enough dishes for one meal so had to wash after each meal. The dishwasher was in poor shape with our...

Evidently there are 2 resorts here: The Resort & Club at Little Harbor and Harborside Suites at Little Harbor. We stayed at Harborside, 4th floor, beautiful view overlooking pool, marina and Bay. Had no issues with bugs, internet or place looking dirty. Had a king suite with mini kitchen. Only issue was blinds missing from glass door to deck off...

We stayed a couple of nights at the Hotel Section as a Romantic / Relaxing Getaway. Going into this trip we knew A. It was in the middle of no where. B. Nothing to do there. We were fine with that. Driving there we quickly realized that it was remote but that made it nice. It's settled all the way...

Not a pleasant experience. Room long distant calls were n/s. 3days no hot water in AM. No freezer in fridge. Stopper in bathroom sink leaked. Pool & spa not open (but they charged a Resort Fee anyway).

Our condo made a great first impression. Spacious living room with nice size master bed and bath and the guest bedroom was a nice size too.

We stayed at Little Harbor last year and are returning this year but would advise you to be aware of the pros and cons of this property. Firstly, be sure you get one of the condo-style rooms as they are new and well appointed....there is an older motel-style complex on the property so be sure to avoid staying there as...
