“Perfect get away resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

I looooved this resort. The rooms were amazing & so upscale! I want that kitchen in my future home! The shower was perfect & the bath & body works complimentary soaps & lotions were a nice touch. (It's the little things sometimes :) & bath & body work is always a smart move). The beds were super comfy, I slept like a rock! It helped that the double curtains gave the option to black out the sun or not for days we wanted to sleep in. The staff were completely hospitable & made us feel very welcomed & at home. Dusti & Steve were super accommodating to all of our needs & helped us out tremendously. They offer great suggestions & places to visit while your there. Last but not least, the resort amenities were everything you can ask for and more, including turn down service with chocolates & muffins! I 110% recommend this resort & will be back!

We stayed two nights with our three kids at the end of July. Needless to say, it was HOT. After a long drive from Sanibel, Florida, we were pleasantly surprised to walk into a nice cool two level suite. The suite has a very European feel to it. Contemporary furnishings, etc. The bedrooms are a little cramped and the beds in each of our two bedrooms were doubles and sort of futon style which is something guests should be aware of if you have back issues or are tall or big. Bathrooms and kitchen were awesome. Nice big TVs in each room and downstairs. The turndown service is nice - they bring muffins and chocolate. Happy hour is nice as well - complementary smoothies and reasonably priced beer and cocktails. I would definitely stay again if/when we return to Key West.

I researched and read all the reviews for this and other hotels. I decided on this one due to the proximity to Duval, the photos that were posted and I loved having a 2BR 2 bath suit. There were many extras....ice cream bars and cold water in refrigerator. Smoothies by the pool that were the absolute greatest ( we added our own liquor ).Pop cycles by the pool and a great happy hour. WE did not have to leave the hotel all day until we decided to go to Duval St. as the hotel was a vacation all by itself !!
I simply can not for get the cleanliness of the hotel, it was a 5 star !! It was over and beyond what we need but it was fantastic being pampered at such a beautiful resort.....worthy or a family getaway to spoil yourself or a honeymoon ! Did not want to leave, will definitely go again.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms although all are 2 BR 2 bath are split , half on second floor and partly on first...

This was our second stay here & it truly is a nice little oasis to base your visit to Key West. The folks here do a wonderful job -- from a wonderful pool experience (kudos to Dusti & AmberLynn) to very helpful with the Key West experience (thanks Nordi) you will enjoy yourself. We did figure out the prime unit to stay in this time -- sorry, not telling, but anywhere will be an awesome visit!

Hope this helps & Ana's Cuban Cafe makes an great Cafe con Leche!

This place is amazing!!! No reason not to like it. Relaxing, good mix of peacefulness and yet activity. Music by the pool is a nice touch. Close to anything but you are far enough away from the main drag that you can sleep at night. We would easily recommend this resort to our friends. Our concierge Nordi has been a huge help arranging excursions even before we arrived.

Lovely place to stay. Rooms are all well appointed and plenty of space. Modern rooms, plenty of tech and was nice having water, ice creams , chocolate, and muffins delivered every night.

Id recommend the ground floor 'flats' that open straight onto the pool. Service is good. friendly staff. complimentary drinks etc at the pool and during happy hour. domestic beers $3 at pool. Soda and water $1 had expected to pay a lot more. in saying that you can buy drinks et in the store across the street and keep them in your room fridge.

short walk to mallory square etc. local beach available a short walk away.

Room Tip: Ask for the ground floor flats

Stayed at Santa Maria in 2 br king suite in very hot hot hot July. Beautiful suite with full kitchen and high end appliances. Took advantage of free smoothies at pool and added our own alcohol. Would caution against ground floor suites however...two mornings in a row we were awoken by the upstairs guests dragging stools across floor. Front desk was great, offered to move us, but we declined. Will definitely request upper suite when we return. Awesome location at south end of Duvall...two blocks to southernmost and beach. Free beach chairs and beach towels at beach. Had own umbrellas...$20 to rent at beach. Highly recommend renting bikes...quick and easy to get to other end of Duvall where bars and restaurants are. Will definitely be returning guests!
