“Great Find!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Very happy we found this gem of a hotel!! .........The staff were great, rooms beat our expectations......... Complete with modern kitchen and laundry. Great location near all the action but far enough away to be quite. We were going to stay somewhere else and very glad we didn't. Highly recommend this small luxury hotel. My kids loved it. The morning sun hits the pool perfectly. Oh yeah....the turn down service with fresh muffins and ice cream in the freezer is a wonderful touch!! They also have beach access. We will be regulars here from now on. Hats off to the staff and management. You are the bomb!!!!

Stayed November 2013, traveled with family

We were touring Florida and picking hotels as we went. It was our second visit to Key West having first visited 10 years ago. Saw this place on the net and booked ahead by phone. Glad we did as it was by far the best place we stayed in.
The suites are clustered round two small landscaped pools. You get unlimited free bottled water and fruit smoothies there. Additionally in a late afternoon happy hour you get free wine and snacks. That obviously is attractive but not a reason to stay in itself.
The whole place is very stylish and modern and the rooms in particular were very well equipped. The 1 bed room we had was on two levels with the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. The entrance itself was on what we Brits call the first floor although it would be floor two to US residents. There was a steep flight of stairs to climb to the front door. That means we would not recommend it to people of limited mobility. Don't know if all the suites are like that.
The free parking is a boon and the location good - next to "Southernmost on the Beach". It’s close to Duval Street but if it's action you want it's a fair trek as all the lively stuff is at the far end.
We probably will not be returning to Key West - been there and done it (twice). We would recommend the Santa Maria suites to others though.

We stayed as a party of 2 couples in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. The apartment itself was spacious, clean, well equipped and basically perfect for our needs. They are ideally situated in the heart of Key West within easy access of some fantastic bars, restaurants etc. We hired some bikes from across the road which were around $20 dollars per bike and were well worth it. We covered a huge amount of the lower part of Key West and really enjoyed every minute of it. The Santa Maria Suites were perfect in every way, staff were helpful, knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. The pool area was clean and quiet. Happy hour was from 4 to 5.30(I think) free wine etc :-), fresh muffins and mini ice creams delivered to your room at night time. I would highly recommend these apartments for location, service, staff, cleanliness, amenities. You won't find anything better!!!

Room Tip: They're all good

We have spent 2 night, with our 3 kids.
Staff was very nice, welcoming, helpful.
The rooms are spacious, comfortable, quiet.
The kitchen was great, I would have loved to have an expresso machine ;-)
Muffins are great too.

The hotel is perfectly located, the swimming pools are not the biggest I know, but very nice and pleasant.

We loved the bar next to the swimming pool, with complimentary drinks, smoothies, lemonade and sun blockers.

We'll be back

Never having been to Key West, we chose Santa Maria Suites from the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. It was, all it was said to be! The suites were beautifully decorated, clean and modern. The lovely kitchens were contemporary with state of the art appliances. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Loved the complimentary smoothies by the pools and the ice cream and muffins that were placed in our room everyday. The location was very convenient to Duvall St. and the ocean. We will come back here again.

I stayed this sweet resort for fantasy fest and had a wonderful time, The staff was only outmatched by the actual accommodations themselves I had a two room suite up and downstairs gourmet kitchen dual shower headed master bathroom the entire place was well appointed. The ambrosia restaurant that was connected is also a first-class Japanese restaurant. I would recommend this resort anyone wants first-class accommodations well situated in the town of Key West.

I must say I am very picky when it comes to staying places. Santa Maria suites NEVER disappoints! I have stayed here several times, as I live in Ft. Lauderdale. The staff is great, the rooms are always very clean, you cannot beat the location. The pool is awesome and they have the best smoothies! Also set us up with scooter rentals and anything else you need when you are there. I dont even like muffins and their muffins are the best! I always bring some home with me! I would HIGHLY recommend staying here if you are going to Key West.

Room Tip: Every room is good!!
