My recent stay at the Santa Maria in December 2012 was incredible. Very relaxing atmosphere with incredible rooms. On site parking and in a very quiet part of the island, yet very close to everything. Throughout our stay we were greeted and accommodated by just about everyone on the staff. With a small staff, you really get acquainted with everyone there. By the end of our week in Key West we were on a first name basis with Kristie, Christen, Jodi, Wolfgang, Jane, and Nordi. Each and every person at this hotel was great. To top it all off, there was ice cream bars in the freezer every day and chocolates on our bed every night. I definitely plan on revisiting this hotel again very soon.
