“Nice place to relax”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

Had a marina view room -- stayed a few days mid-week. Was nice and quiet. Pre-booked hotel/car package on Travelocity. Front desk crew was nice - check-in and check-out were quick and easy. Mini-frig and microwave in room (passed a couple of supermarkets on the drive from TPA to the resort - Publix and Winn Dixie - and picked up some snacks/drinks). Enjoyed sitting on the beach -- lots of lounge chairs. Watched beautiful sunrises from the room and sunsets from the beach! Would not hesitate to stay there again.

The Resort&Club at Little Harbour is a great resort to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the beach and gulf in Florida. Walk the beach ,relax by the pool,great restuarent and tiki bar at the beach . The rooms are in great shape for an older hotel. The only draw back is that they don't have wireless in every room but you can use hardwire internet if set up for it.

suggest you upgrade to harbor side 6 story building with direct Tampa Bay view. Less than $150 per night for suite, easily sleeps 4 with fully dining area and full kitchen. Nice bar area around pool with band and Tiki Bar. Food good.

Recently returned from 10 nights at Little Harbor. Excellent experience. Although we were second guessing the GPS navigating us there it turned out to be an oasis in the wilderness.
This Carribean themed facility offers good customer services, food and ammenities.
Look forward to a return visit in the future.

Room Tip: Our "King Suite" faced onto Tampa Bay. Gorgeous sunsets-see photo below. Efficiency unit...

We stayed in a second floor room that was right on the water where we could watch the sunrise each morning. The pelicans kept us entertained. The Tiki Bar is a perfect location for the sunsets. Live entertainment most evenings, creative menu and two for one beer and wine every day. It's off the beaten path but we found that everything we needed was there so we didn't mind that at all.

Travelers to Florida don't think of resorts and Ruskin in the same sentance but this one is very nice. We stayed in the condos, and enjoyed the pool, extensive terrace to view the sunset, strolls by the marina and on the property. It is secluded but within 30- 45 minutes of Clearwater, Tampa or Sarasota. Enjoyed a New Year's Day meal at the Sunset Grille. It is a short drive to the Manatee Viewing area in Apollo Beach and we saw hundreds, due to the cooler weather. The biggest disappointments were no recycling and a very awkward connection to the internet. The outdoor furniture has seen better days but it is still comfortable and makes for an enjoyable time on the terrace.

Room Tip: Ask for the marina side if you want to be able to watch sunsets from your own balcony. However, the...

We booked this out of the way hotel that overlooks a marina and St. Pete for New Years Eve and had a great time with family.
Pros:
*the gorgeous view at sunset and sunrise. my family even saw dolphins and manatees in the morning
*the decor of the rooms is a whimsical beach house feel
*plenty of towels and pillows in the room, fluffy robes in the closet and a full kitchen sans stove including dishes and bake ware
*balcony with sliding door
*outdoor pool and fireplace
*separate restaurant though we didn't eat there
*breakfast but we slept through it

Cons:
*the carpet in the hallway is stained and filthy
*the elevator has the same carpet and reeked of fish - so gross but we just plugged our noses
*when we booked we were told about a new years eve champagne toast, dj, dancing, etc. they didn't tell us it was $60 per person! our plans might have been ruined if we hadn't brought our own alcohol and took the party out to the pool deck.
*accidentally overdoing it on NYs Eve had me praying to the porcelain god so I noticed someone else had vomited or urinated on the wall next to the toilet - so gross and made me being sick even worse.

Would I stay there again? Yes but make sure to ask about ALL expenses if they're offering extras.

Room Tip: Book a balcony room
