My wife and I recently spent 4 days (3 nights) at this resort. We had a wonderful time and found everything to be top notch. The restaurant was wonderful, we saw manatees in the harbor, went kayaking, sat on the beach with our books and relaxed.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Harborside building which was excellent.

Little Harbor is tucked away right on Tampa Bay with a beautiful view of St. Pete. We stayed at The Resort & Club at Little Harbor for 2 nights in June. The one bedroom condo with a full kitchen in the newer building was lovely!! The sunset from our balcony was beautiful and a perfect place to relax and enjoy. I would definitely stay again.

I stayed at this resort as a member of the Travel Advantage Network, so I can't speak to the cost of the stay as it was a pre-purchased week at a fraction of the advertised price. What I can speak to is the beauty, tranquility, and excellence of the resort. The beach is beautiful, the amenities are quite sufficient and the service was very warm. We tried to take advantage to everything. It was convenient that we were able to get massages in our room (though that wasn't cheap), get tennis equipment right from the front desk, and rent ski jets right on the beach (plus charging them to our room made it super easy). We made friends with almost everyone who served us at the bar and restaurant. The bartender even gave me a free drink the day before we left with the message to "have fun". :)

The food at the restaurant was surprisingly excellent. I wish we could eat more so that we could have eaten there every meal! The pool patio is very nice and well designed. There's always somewhere to sit and relax. I can't tell you how amazing our condo was. I didn't want to come home! Theres so much more I could say, but then this review would be even longer! If you read trip advisor reviews for the same reason I do then here's what you're looking for JUST GO! You won't regret it. And don't forget to visit the nearby shack The Fish House. Amazing food, no nonsense food served by some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. And if you're as lucky as we were just before you leave you'll see a family of dolphins pop out of the water while watching the sun set from your seat at the tiki bar. Seriously, can it get any better?

Room Tip: Every room at the resort section is beautiful. Try to get an even number as they overlook the beach.

Staff were very friendly and it was a really nice place where it was quiet and elegant. Really enjoyed ourselves.

Room Tip: We had a water view studio and it was great for looking at St. Pete, especially at night.

The special that we booked was amazing! The cocktails and breakfast was delicious. The room was nice, we didn't get a waterview but we spent most of our time at the pool.
The worst part of our trip was Etieen!! He worked at the front desk--he made my reservation over the phone. And didn't know the answer to most of our questions! Then when we came to checkin we didn't have our breakfast coupons! And the rate was incorrect! He didn't tell us about a resort fee and then was rude when he told us we didn't get the waterview we had requested! He was awful! Not customer service material at all!!

Even though the set up was very nice (the marine) the resort is poorly maintained.
The room was dirty at our arrival and the private beach looked ok but my husband and daughter swam there and got an ear infection! the hotel manager argued no compliants were made but swimming there was the only thing my husband and daughter did different than my small girl and myself who did not get anything....what a coincidence!
The restaurant was terrible as well, we only ate there once day and decided not to repeat....
Really, go somewhere else......

Room Tip: go for sea view
