We were planning our wedding here for about a year. Within that time frame we went through about 4 event managers/coordinators at little harbor. While that didn't make things smooth (they even lost our original booking), it still turned out to be everything we wanted!

We were planning our wedding here for about a year. Within that time frame we went through about 4 event managers/coordinators at little harbor. While that didn't make things smooth (they even lost our original booking), it still turned out to be everything we wanted!

Dahiana & Abby were both utterly fantastic & made the day of perfect & seamless. They were such an amazing help!

The wait staff during our reception was on point & we were never in need of anything! They were right on top of it! Read less

Elizabeth did a wonderful job coordinating my wedding. She was patient with me (I am very indecisive) and was on the ball when I changed things around and made last minute requests. I never tried to call, but I do know she was quick as a whip replying to my emails. Thank you Elizabeth!!! Reliable and dedicated to her job. The weather was not cooperative for us on our big day so we moved the ceremony indoors just over an hour before start time, but it was perfect and more beautiful than I ever imagined - I am so happy! If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing! I brought a lot of my own decor in and the crew set it up perfect! I went into the reception hall earlier in the day to look everything over and try to setup, but they had it all down better than I could have. I did not have a huge budget for my wedding (<10k) and it still turned out beautiful. 100% satisfied. Many of us were still partying outside well after the reception around a bonfire. Security let us know that the property is basically lights-out at 11:00PM (but it was probably closer to 12:30AM when we got yelled at). It's OK though, with open bar all night we needed some sober grown-ups to tell us its bedtime. The resort was clean and housekeeping responsive. I stayed in Harborside Suites which had bright clean colors inside and was designed more like a condo for a long-term stay. I would stay again. There is lots to do on the property - it may be nice to stay a few days! Many of my guests booked the cheaper, but still nice, Harborside Inn. The Inn has a darker decor inside and is a nice hotel room quality. No complaints from guests. Keep in mind the Inn does not have an elevator so elderly and handicapped should book the first floor. The food was excellent, but I'll provide that review under Sunset Grill as catering.

We love the Resort and Club at Little Harbor! Elizabeth was great to work with in planning our wedding (though she isn't really a planner, more of a coordinator), she was easy going and very accommodating to our wishes. The food is excellent-always is, we eat at their restaurant fairly often. The grounds are beautiful, providing many types of scenery for photos. All of the staff was wonderful and thanked us for choosing their venue. Everyone made us feel like they were thrilled to have us, not just another wedding to make a buck.

We had our wedding at Little Harbor, and Liz was our coordinator. I can tell you from start to finish she was on top of it! I felt like I had my own personal wedding planner. She personally checks all details and set-up. She was there on the day of our rehearsal to help coordinate the wedding party. She is also there before and during the wedding from start to finish. Driving me to location, putting boutineers on the groom, and my son, making sure everyone was in their right places, to making sure we were took care of, and everything ran smooth. Not only was she fantastic but the location was beautiful the reception was beautiful. I could not have asked for a better day!

We had to change our venue one month before the wedding because our other place was ripping us off! Matthew was so helpful from the first day we got there, we told him or situation and he helped us out, he told us a month was plenty of time that he has put a wedding together in a week before and he really put all my worries to rest! The ceremony was above and beyond what we wanted. We had a tiki hutt (that me and my dad put together) that we wanted to get married under but it fell apart right before I arrived so they put up a beautiful arch for us. Cocktail hour was great the food, drinks and sunset were perfect! Then the reception was great, the decorations just as I wanted! Matthew and his crew turned the room around in less then two hours for the reception and I could not have asked for anything more. You get great quality for the price and the prices are very reasonable, I would recommend them to anyone!

The people at Little Harbor were a pleasure to work with. They were extremely responsive to emails and phone calls. Leading up to our wedding day Matt was available whenever I needed him for a question here or there. The night of the wedding went smoothly and we were waited on hand and foot. Rooms are beautiful, we can't wait to go back to enjoy the resort. All our out of town guests LOVED it!
