“Great Sunsets and beautiful views!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2010

Room had perfect view of the sunset, over marina and Tampa Bay - you could also see the lights from St. Petersburgh.. Service was very pleasant and helpful..felt like we knew everyone. Pool was perfectly heated even though it was a little cool out.. Several really nice restaurants in the area, but the Tiki bar is awsome in the evening. Very relaxing stay.. We will be back!!

After hours of wait for our reserved room, we were placed next to an elevator equipment room, hallway and ice machine! Room negotiations ensued and we were charged more for less after the exchange. Top it all off our credit card was extremely overcharged and we got an overdraft charge from our bank!

We decided to take a road trip to Little Harbor after a friend of the family recommended it. The studio condo we had on the 4th floor was GREAT (very clean and spacious) and we were fortunate enough to enjoy the New Years Eve fireworks right from our balcony! All of the staff (not just the front desk) is extreamly friendly and helpful. The dining room was hosting a special NYE dinner, which we did not participate in, but it was done up very well. I definitly recommend this place for a weekend get a way! The only downside is there isn't much to do ouside of what the resort offers. But its a great way to relax.

My husband, 5 month old baby and I stayed at little harbor in August (the lowest season) It was clean and relaxing.

Pros:
-Immaculate Grounds
-Rooms just as pictured on website
-helpful staff at every turn
-new and fresh
-nice pools
-restaurant onsite with live entertainment (try the gooy fudge dessert its great!)
-plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas set up for you on the beach
-covered parking and elevator in the harbor side bldgs

Cons:
-water on beach is murky (nothing the hotel can do about that) Only people it seemed to bother where from Florida. If you are fro Ohio or Canada you probably will not care

Tips:
-Stay harbor side and ask for a room facing the bay. Harbor side the rooms are new and if you face the bay you get a bay and Gulf view. Building “A” is the furthest from the road.
-Nothing exciting for older kids – this is a great weekend getaway but don’t expect to be entertained like a “Sandals”
-This resort is for rest and relaxation in my opinion
-Good quality portable cribs avail. For $5 a night

My husband & I stayd here for a weekend and had a very relaxing, enjoyable time! We had a pool very close by, the private beach just around the corner with a tiki bar & resturant. This place has all you might want to do, tennis courts, water sports, playgrounds, basketball courts & a marina! We relaxed on the beach, had drinks from the tiki bar & enjoyed the pool right outside our condo's door. Beautiful place, nice people, a very good time. We will go again!

We just visited the resort for a family wedding and were very impressed with the resort and our condo. It is situated in the middle of nowhere so if you are looking for variety, this is not the place to be. The condo was very nice, modern, and clean. The restaurant/tiki bar served very good food but you are limited to one menu. If you are a boater, this is a great place to stay. There is a Sweet Bay grocery store about 10 minutes away to stock up if needed. Overall, it was a nice stay for a short period of time.
