We were there for only one night but I could see how the property could be a favorite for some. While some of the facilities were a little dated there is a lot to do and the food prices are extremely reasonable. We had brunch on Sunday, it included 2 glasses of mimosa and was only $17. Lots of good...

Rooms and hallways really outdated! Air conditioner old and tired--couldn't get room cooler than 78 degrees. Very old (20 year old) TV that didn't work properly, closet door came off its track, mounds of dust behind the lattice headboard.

We stayed here at the recommendation of a business acquaintance. We were looking for something for 2 days that wasn't terribly expensive cause we were going to be busy with business rather than needing amenities.

We stayed at 3220 Mangrove Pt in Little Harbor Resort in June 2014 for 1 week. Very nice, roomy, tastefully decorated townhouse. No issues with our rental at all. I would have liked to be closer to the beach and pool. Close grocery store but not real close to chain restaurants.
