5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

I stayed here for two nights with my hubby and our friends (another couple) and it was GREAT! The facility and suite was clean and inviting. The staff was TERRIFIC! The setting truly made our "quick" weekend getaway feel like a true vacation. Definitely would recommend and very family friendly as well! Overall we LOVED it :-)

Beautiful small resort with 5 star service, and beautiful suites. We stayed back on Sept 3rd for six nights, originally booked for 3 with the intention of returning to Miami for the last 3 nights of vacation. You can't get a real feel for the keys in 3 nights, and this property was so inviting. The bedrooms are spacious, as is the master bath with a double shower. There is a 2nd bath outside of the 2nd bedroom that was a little smaller, but still very comfortable with a large shower. Great suite for 2 couples or families. The spacious living and kitchen area is well laid out, as is everything on this property. Beautiful large balcony overlooking 2 pools, one with a fountain that offered a nice massage standing under it. Clean, clean, clean is the word inside and out. So many other things are mentionable about this place, but you have to really be there to find out how great it is. Thanks Christina for your time and effort with my many questions, and requests.

Room Tip: Suite 15 worth every penny, no matter what season

I recently visited key west and stayed at this hotel. The hotel was extremely clean, the pool area offered a truly relaxing environment with incredible décor. Customer service was amazing, and absolutely friendly. If you are looking for a great getaway, in a low stress atmosphere with fantastic amenities then book your stay at the Santa Maria. You won't be disappointed!

We didn't have a reservation. Checked out a few on the TripAd list including the Ibis Hotel (not too impressive--located in the commercial district--booo!) Went on around the Southernmost area--much better with a cautionary notes--there is pretty much a brothel in the midst of shopping and dining--wouldn't recommend bringing children here. We checked several other options and chose the Santa Maria Suites. Glad we did--$100 less than the Southernmost Hotel next door and....it was Fabulous! 2 nice bedrooms with King beds--very comfy. Beautiful open kitchen/den--nice balcony overlooking the lovely tropical-tasteful pool area. Very up-to-date and upscale. Dusty at the reservations desk was great. She was the kind of person you want helping you when checking in.
From the Santa Maria it's just a short walk to the southernmost point for pictures. We only got to stay one night---too bad--this place is great!

I stayed here recently with a few friends I was vacationing with. From the moment we entered the courtyard we knew it was a special place. Our quarters were more like apartments than than hotel rooms. Very modern with everything including kitchen, washer dryers fridge and freezer. The staff was great and really went the extra mile. I loved that we had fresh muffins in our room every night when we got back in too.
