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. The condo its self the layout etc was very good, lots of space even for 6 adults. When we looked around we noticed the place was just not clean. The carpet had not been clean from previous guests. The cutlery and crockery had been replaced in the cupboards and not washed properly, All the skirting boards and bannisters were thick with dust and grime, chipped furniture and black marks on the walls. All these things are not acceptable. Little Harbor management need to take a look around their establishment and put all these things right. Starting with housekeeping who need some lessons on how to clean properly.
One evening we decided to go to the Restaurant, we asked what time last orders were served and was told 9.PM so we arrived at about 8.40pm and was greeted by a young man who told us we must be joking coming to dinner at this time of the evening!!!!!! He pasted the seating of our party to someone else. When our server arrived she told us we were to late for the full menu as it was gone 9.pm. When we told her we arrived in time but had been kept waiting by said young man, she went away and came back and we were able to order from the main menu. The food is very good in the Restaurant but once again not as clean as it should be, badly stained carpet etc and a horrible smell of bleach.
One other thing that I thought was not good, the block we stayed in was massive with the smallest swimming pool, not nearly big enough to accommodate a fraction of the people staying within our block.
Would I stay there again NO, they would really have to get their act together for me to stay again.
