“Superb location and fabulous apartment”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Our two night stay at the Santa Maria apartments exceeded our expectations. We were given apartment two, which overlooked the pool. This was an excellent apartment, with a spacious kitchen, well appointed lounge area and wonderful bedrooms with comfy beds. The main bedroom was spacious and we loved the en-suite. The teenagers were quite happy in their bedroom but the patchy wi-fi bothered them. Suck it up, we're in Key West! The wine and snacks by the pool was a welcome sight.

We had a car but only drove it to the supermarket for dinner supplies. Our only full day in Key West was rainy but we made the most of it by exploring the town on foot. Santa Maria Suites is located near the beach and a short walk to Duvall St. The staff are ever so helpful and very friendly. Parking and access was excellent, our apartment was quiet and the laid back atmosphere was what we expected.

We will definitely be back one day!

Room Tip: A ground floor apartment, such as number 2.

We could not have asked for a more posh and functional two bedroom suite, done in muted colors and with excellent special design. We did not use every feature but it was quite clear that you could make dinner or enjoy a simple breakfast with ease. The Suites were on the whole pretty quiet though they faced the pool and had some exterior noise, But a little loud partying is expected in that town.

Our best experience was with the friendly, knowledgeable staff who recommended the best deep sea fishing trip of our lives, endorsed our sea plan trip to Dry Tortuga National Park, made sure every creature comfort we requested were delivered quickly and provided us with so many fresh baked muffins each day that it was almost over the top.

This fascility enjoys a top notch sushi restaurant next door as well. Some might find its location a little out of the way for non-stop partying but we liked having parking when we needed it and the few short blocks to walk to Mallory Square and other action sites.

We want to single out Nordi for his kindness, willingness to help us even on his day off and understanding our interests and taking care of them. Please ask for his help when you stay there.

A five star came down to four only because the lovely pool area is cramped and made it a bit uncomfortable to use with all the families there, That is not the facilities fault but it did impact our stay somewhat,

Room Tip: Room 15 is a two bedroom suite that overlooks the pool but is not in obvious eye contact to those be...

we rented a 2 bedroom suite on the second floor.
i had heard the first floor was preferred,but the light and feel from the second floor was worth a flight of stairs.
The rooms were good sized and balcony and living-dining area were excellent.
Staff was very accomadating and were very friendly and professional.
I thought the location was great.pool area very nice as well.
The test is would you go back and the answer is yes.

Spent two nights with my son his wife and two teenagers. Everything was perfect. Very comfortable condo. Key west is more of an adult destination. Very pretty, nice restaurants, people watching, expensive. Drinking age is 21. It was nice to have a comfortable place for teenagers to be comfortable.
