“Awesome place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Centrally located. Kids loved smoothies/muffins/ice cream bar. Contemporary design. Stayed with 3 kids and space was good. The rooms were big enough (in response to McGoo's review). Who wants to be by Mallory Square?!! South Beach was less than 2 blocks away. I only wish they had breakfast on site. I would stay again if I went back to Key West.

Room Tip: I wouldn't pay extra for pool view. We had 2nd floor garden view and it was fine. They are lik...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

This is a very nice place to stay -- clean, comfortable and friendly. We stayed in a 2-bedroom pool suite for 3 nights. The master bed/bath is great. The living room area is very small -- not even room for a table & chairs for eating meals (must use the snack bar.) The second bath is also very small. The little extras they provide are nice but we didn't need them. We are usually more frugal and this was a splurge for us. We have stayed in equally nice condos in Florida for a full week for 1/3 of what this cost for 3 nights. We wanted to be sure to have cleanliness, quiet, and a nice environment and we got that for sure. I just don't feel that it was worth the extreme cost. That being said, I don't know how other Key West accommodations compare, so we may not have been comfortable elsewhere. I would recommend Santa Maria to anyone who wants to be sure of good standards and isn't concerned about cost.

Room Tip: I don't like first floor rooms because you have no privacy (our bedroom faced a busy road so we...

I stayed with my wife and kids (13 and 11) at the Santa Maria Suites during Presidents' Week 2012. Much of what is written in other reviews is accurate - the place is clean, the rooms are nice and big, the people are friendly and Derrick is wonderful.

Make no mistake, however, this is a really small boutique hotel - it is not a resort. At the hotel itself, other than sitting by the pool, there is nothing to do (there is a Japanese restaurant on site that we did not try).

The location is really good - about a 2 block walk to the nearest beach (which is small and not really that nice, but Key West is not exactly known for its beaches anyway - all of them are very rocky and there is lots of seaweed at most - Zachary Taylor Park is one of the best beaches on Key West), and about a 5-10 minute walk to many good restaurants and shopping on Duval Street. The really busy, touristy part of Duvall is about a 20 minute walk from the hotel.

I would stay here again, but if I went back to Key West with my kids, I would probably looks to stay somewhere else . . .

We stayed at the Santa Maria Suites for three nights at the end of March. The accommodations were very nice. Two-level condo, full kitchen, 3 flat screens - one in the living room area and one in each of the bedrooms. The bedrooms were a little tight, but comfortable. The only advice I would give is if you want to be in the midst of nightlife, you really need to stay at the other end of Duval Street. If you're looking for quiet, this is the area. Otherwise, the Pier House or one of the hotels at that end of Duval is closer to all the nightlife! If you don't mind walking, it's not a problem. Also, you have a pass to the private beach at Southermost. The beach is small, but nice, although they don't rake it and there's a lot of seaweed.

5 stars is generous as this is no Four Seasons but it definately beat expectations. Spacious newly renovated quiet rooms with granite kitchens and separation for parents and kids. No view of water but great pool area with staff who is very attentive to details and customer needs. 1 blk. to Duvall but probably 1/2 mile to "heart" of action... which can be a good thing. Convenient to a variety of restaurants, grocery, and activities. Rent bikes and save the traffic problems. "Workout room" is kind of lacking but for a small hotel - I'm glad they had one.

Room Tip: There are a handful of rooms that overlook the parking lot - but they also have a pool view so I'...
