“Just okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

We spent three nights at Santa Maria Suites in April 2012. It is over price for what you get. They gave us an unclean unit at first, missed one day housekeeping. The two pools are very small. Bedrooms and bathrooms are small and not very clean. I think people are over rate this place.

We will definitely come back to Key West but don't think we will stay at this place again.

The beach close by is small and has lots of sea weed.

Room Tip: Flat unit is better than bi-level unit. Derek was very helpful, but the rest of staff were just oka...

This hotel is part of the Small Luxury Hotels chain and very much lives up to billing. Others have described the great features and superb service in detail.

What struck me was how perfect the layout is for sharing with another couple. The downstairs suites have a master suite (b/r, bath) and a second bedroom with hall bath. As you enter the suite, the master is on the left side and the other br/bath is on the right. It's as good as two separate suites in terms of visual privacy.

We found the Santa Maria to be very quiet at night in terms of street noise. And there's free parking.

The location is near the Southernmost Point. It's within walking distance of some attractions like Hemmingway house, but it's a stretch to say it's within walking distance of downtown.

We stayed with friends in a two bed duplex suite. The accommodation was not very good for socialising. The living room was long and thin with a balcony which could only accommodate 2 of us at a time - not very food for a suite for 4 people. The kitchen was entirely separate at the rear of the property. The bedrooms and bathrooms were cosy, with some scuffs on walls and the odd cracked tile. I'm being picky but it's not what I expect from a premium rate hotel.

I think if we had picked a two bed single floor suite the layout and balcony size would have been much better.

On a plus note - the pool area was lovely, everything was clean, the staff all pleasant, and the location quiet whilst still within easy reach of Duval Street.

Room Tip: Don't book a duplex suite!

We spent two nights at Santa Maria Suites in April 2012 with our two sons (ages 11 and 9). Wow, what a great place! I travel all over the world with my job, and usually stay at Marriott properties because of their consistent quality and great rewards program. We read the reviews of Santa Maria Suites on Tripadvisor, and decided to give it a try. We're so glad we did. From our late-night check-in to the the day we had to leave, it's obvious that all the employees take pride in providing the highest level of service. They are all extremely friendly and make you feel right at home. Derek was especially great. The small touches really put the place over the top - the breakfast muffins, dove bars, and free smoothies at the pool. We stayed in a two-bedroom suite which was just beautiful - modern, upscale, well-appointed, and impeccably clean. The hotel is in a perfect location, close enough to walk to all the high-energy excitement on Duval Street. But it also is the perfect quiet retreat when you're ready to relax. We can't wait to return!

This is the only hotel I will stay at in Key West. The condos are gorgeous and modern. Washer and dryer inside each suite a huge plus. Quick walk to Duval, and is attached to the most amazing sushi restaurant.
Derek and the staff are amazing.
You feel secluded from everyone but at the same time are close to all the fun.

Love the Dove ice cream bars, fruit, and muffins!
