“Lovely hotel in great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

We stayed 4 nights in this wonderful hotel. The pool area feels and looks like a jungle. Pool was heated. Derek, the concierge and pool man, was just wonderful. He helped us with anything we asked about and made wonderful free smoothies all day long. Complimentary Happy Hour from 4:30 PM to 6 PM. Apartment was beautiful. Kitchen just great. Our bedroom was small - really too small with the bathroom right at the side of the bed. But it was a great bathroom and comfy bed. So only negative was the size of the bedroom. Location is brilliant - the opposite side of Duval Street if that is not your scene. Free beach loungers at South Beach - you pay for the umbrella. Would definitely return to this hotel. Highly recommended. Wish we were there now!

1st trip to Key West and it was simply excellent. I don't think I am able to stay in any other properties but the Santa Maria Suites.

Ideal location to all the bars and attractions; spacious spacious suites; staff are exceptionally friendly, special mentions go to Wolfgang at the Front Desk and the two concierges Derek and Dan; wonderful ammenities include complimentary smoothies by the pool.

Very pleased with this hotel - should I return to Key West, this is it.

I fell in love with Santa Maria Suites. I've been to Key West before and stayed on the other side. Upon arrival to Santa Maria it seemed like it would be a hike to get to the action but it was so worth it. I like walking anyways and the walks we had were pleasant. We even took a bus/tour ride one day. Plus, there are great restaurant choices that are close. Finally, why would you want to leave this place...the front desk staff was super friendly and helpful including Wolfgang. The pool staff and staff who delivered requests to our door seemed to go out of their way to be friendly and helpful with extra towels, muffins and water! Most of all I loved the setting. The pool was set in paradise. My son loved the sprinklers and the 2 different pools. I loved the lawn chairs and geckos and foliage. The rooms themselves were very clean and modern with all the amenities you need. You can even cook and then sit out on the porch! i didn't want to leave...ever...

Stayed here for several days before and after my wedding. Located on the quiet end of the island just off of the beaten-path. Walking distance to everything! Southern-most point is two blocks down.
We had a second floor - two story suite. Both BRs, one having a FB and the other 3/4 bath were located on the second story of the unit. Bedrooms were average size and while I was digging the size of the chic vanity bowl/sink, there is no where to set a tube of toothpaste/brush/floss or a bar of soap. These giant sink/bowls consume all available counter space... yet they're aesthetically pleasing. Mattresses were comfortable and above average. Huge closets!
Kitchen was sleek, stocked with everything you would need (minus food). I love the slide out refrigerator and freezer drawers. The 4 person breakfast bar was the only place to sit to eat as there was no table.
Living area was nice but a little on the cramped side. The unit had a total of 3 balconies. One off the bedroom upstairs, one off the kitchen and one off the living area which looked down onto the pool. Both pools were clean and inviting!
The stacked washer/dryer in the unit were great to have since we headed off to our honeymoon destination - This allowed us to wash and repack some clothing we'd already worn in KW.
Service was top-notch and everyone of our friends/family that stopped by fell in love with the Santa Maria. Don't miss happy hour at the pool!
We splurged and paid a little more since this was our wedding - It would be difficult to not stay here again on our next trip to Key West. Santa Maria was ranked number one for a very good reason!

Room Tip: Lots of stairs - If you're elderly or traveling with some one who doesn't like to hike up an...

Recently my wife and i spent a week in Key West for the first time and picked Santa Maria Suites because of the comments seen on Trip Advisor. The weather was perfect. We stayed on the bottom floor in a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom suite with full kitchen and living room, very high-end, very nice. After sight-seeing, our favorite routine was to hang-out at the hotel and enjoy the pool area. A few steps from our room placed us at the perfect recliners, near 2 pools surrounded by palm trees. Toss in some provided background music and Derek (extraordinary pool guy/bar tender/reservation maker) and get ready to have a most relaxing vacation.

Room Tip: Room 8 was a great location. The sushi bar located on-site has good food.
