“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I absolutely love this place. The location is excellent close to shopping, food, beach and water sports. The pool is a tropical paradise with butterflies! This hotel is absolutely fabulous with attentive staff who could not do enough to assist you. Rooms are spacious.

if you're visiting key west, this is a "must stay at" property. the rooms are great, the perks are great, and the staff is A++. i had never stayed at this property before, and i brought 15 guests with me. we all loved it and would go back there in a minute!!! walking distance to everything duval offers, the beach, and other attractions. if you're looking for a great experience this is the answer.

This is the most gorgeous hotel!
Many of us stayed here for my sister's wedding this past weekend.
Santa Maria has everything and the most accommodating staff.
Rooms are gorgeous. Bathrooms are beautiful and spacious.
So close to the beach and Duval Street.
Can't wait to go back!

We only stayed 2 nights but wish it had been longer. We were 4 adults and a 1 year old child. Our rooms were right off the pool w/its own private outdoor patio space which was great for the baby. The rooms were immaculate and modern, yet the ambience of the surroundings felt very "homey" and comfortable. Staff, from cleaners to pool area to office, was ultra friendly and accommodating! Just a purely wonderful experience.

Room Tip: We stayed downsairs in Room 509 and loved its location as it was a lil more tucked back and private.

We spent 2 nights at the Santa Maria Suites and wished we could have stayed longer. The suites are spotless and offer a lot of room. Our only minor complaint and the reason we didn't give 5 stars is the small bedroom and bathroom. Poor design here....the bed takes up most of the room and the mattress is on a low platform which was easy to stub toes on etc. The sink in the bathroom takes up the entire vanity so there is no room for toiletries etc. But the suite itself was beautiful! Loved the nightly turn down service with Dove chocolates, the Dove ice cream bars left in the freezer and the daily muffins left for breakfast the next day. $20 per person resort fee covers parking, wi-fi, cable TV, and smoothies/happy hour by the pool. The Suites are on the Atlantic Ocean side of the island so each night we walked (about 20-25 minutes) from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico to watch the sunsets from Mallory Square. Even though we had a rental car, we found the things we wanted to see and do within walking distance from the Suites. Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

Dear Santa Maria Suites Guest,

Thank you for your comments and really appreciate your business. We are glad you had a nice stay and hope you return….soon!

We are looking into a new bed frame which will raise the bed and give additional room in the bedroom....hopefully the 950 square feet of living space in each suite is enough room.

The Santa Maria staff and I look forward to your next visit to Key West.

I stayed at the Santa Maria Suites while attending a wedding in Key West. The resort is absolutely beautiful and the service is fantastic. The pool is very relaxing and all around the hotel grounds are different tropical plants. My room was huge and the decor was gorgeous. Every morning you wake up to freshly made muffins in your kitchen for breakfast. The hotel is very close to the beach, about a 5 minute walk. An amazing hotel, I would definitely come back.
