“Great place to get away for a long weekend!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2011

Some friends and I took a weekend ride on our motorcycles across the state and picked out the Resort and Club at Little Harbor by just searching over the net. What a gem it turned out to be. We visited in July and got rates of less than $100 for rooms with two queens. The rooms were very spacious and clean and more that I expected for the rate. Each building had its own pool, and though they were small and not resort type pools, good enough for us to cool off after a day on the road. Next we hit the tiki bar, right on the Gulf, and it was loaded with locals and other visitors. Drink prices and service were good and you had an excellent view of the sun going down. The resort has a nice beach area too. We then went to the restaurant where the food was excellent. Prices were fair and what you would expect for a place right on the beach. Overall, it was a great stay and for the price, the location and room size, I would definitely go again. They had tennis and other activities there that you could do as well. Not much else around there, but for a couple day or weekend getaway for a super price, a beach location, and time to relax and enjoy, this is the place! Located just south of Tampa on the Gulf of Mexico.

Room Tip: The rooms have double queens and are very spacious. The rooms in the hotel area, versus condo, are...

My wife and I found a great deal on Travelzoo. We had never heard of The Resort & Club at Little Harbor nor had we ever heard of Ruskin, FL in the 10 years we have lived here but decided to take a chance. We were extremly happy and surprised by what we had found. When you pull into Little Harbor it is like you are pulling into another world. Beautifully landscpaed and very well maintained. The original room that we had gotten did not face the harbor so we requested to be changed. The staff was very nice and had no probelm doing it. They even brought the new key up to our room so that we did not have to go back down. The pool area was very nice. My only suggestion for here is that they should have a bar and perhaps some music playing. If you want a drink you need to walk to the resturant across the street and carry them back. At night we ate dinner at the Sunset Grill which is part of the Resort. We sat out side since a band was playing. The food quality was way above what expected. In the morning we went back for breakfast and once again it was very good. We were disappointed that we had only booked one night.

Room Tip: Choose a room on a high floor that faces the harbor

we found this property on sale and took a chance based on the TripAdvisor reviews. This is a neat place in the middle of nowhere. There is nothing worthwhile for miles until you get up to Apollo Beach where there is a Publix and manatee watching. We booked a room in the harborside building. We enjoyed the fitness center, the jacuzzi, the pool, and the outdoor gas fireplace. The breakfas buffet could have had some more healthy options but was a good deal since it was already included in our room rate. The harbor buildings seem to be more up to date and we would book there again on a repeat trip.

Room Tip: we booked a room in one of the harborside buildings. I recommend this, especially if you can get a...

My family and I always go away for a week in May. We have been coming here for the last 5 yrs. The condos are so spacious and clean. I love the beach. It is private and can just lay there all day and be waited on without even getting up. The only thing that I would recommend is when you go into the water, just shuffle your feet never pick up your feet when your walking, Just in case you come across a sting ray. As everyone knows there are all kinds of different sea animals in the waters. The Tiki bar is also a favorite of ours. We have the same bar tender every year and is very nice. I would recommend Little Harbor Resort to anyone that wants a quiet nice time with their family. Can't wait to go back this May!! Just Love it!!!!!

Room Tip: If you want extra space. Ask for the rooms with the spiral staircase there is an extra room which i...

Really enjoyed our stay. first time here. stayed on the 5th floor of bldg c. the room was beautiful. It had a small balcony to look out over the marina. there were 5 manatees in the marina to watch. the view was beautiful. looks out at skylines of st petersburg and to the right at tampa. had a fabulous breakfast buffet at the restaurant. Hung out at the tiki bar outside. had a band. food great! loved the potato chips with blue cheese! mmmmm. too chilly for the beach. but it was pretty.

This is a great resort with an "away from it all" atmosphere. We went at a very busy time when the place was packed, yet it was quiet and relaxing. The bay water is not particularly pleasant; the gorgeous Gulf beaches are just a short drive away, however. The facility is well-kept and the staff were very helpful. Our suite was very spacious and well-furnished. Manatees visit the harbor each evening. Mangrove swamps are close by, and we enjoyed kayaking through them. The Fish House is the best food within a half-hour ... then again, it's about the only food. :) The isolation of the place might be a detriment to some, but it was perfect for us.

We went to the Resort & Club at Little Harbor to celebrate our first year wedding anniversary. We booked our reservation through Travelzoo and wondered if our stay would be as enjoyable as stated in the many reviews. Our stay was amazing. We loved the accommodations, The room was immaculate and roomy, exactly like the pictures. The kitchen in our room had everything we needed for our stay. The views from our room were spectacular - Tampa Bay, amazing sunsets, and a group of manatees paid us a visit at the marina. We highly recommend this resort and plan to visit again! Loved It!

Room Tip: Request water view because the sunsets are just amazing.
