“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

More than we ever expected. Friendly and very helpful staff. Always looked forward to returning at days end to relax by the poolside with complimentary beverages and snacks. Our two favorite employees there were Ken and Derek. The place was quiet during the evening. Never heard a peep from other guests during the night. Felt secure and safe. We highly recommend this place and would come back again. Great spot for families.

My friend and I came to Key West to catch up, relax, and party. Duval Street took care of the partying and Santa Maria took care of ABSOLUTELY everything else! The pool side concierges were extremely helpful- they would make your drink while making your reservations for excursions. The staff was always happy to make recommendations, call cabs, and deliver requested items. Delicious muffins and Dove mini ice cream bars were delivered each evening. The cleaning service was always perfectly timed. We couldn't get enough of the ideal temperature pool and loved the wine, pita chip, and hummus happy hours!

The only "issue" is that the hotel is about a 15/20 minute walk to Duval Street so we frequently took cabs. However, they always arrived immediately, had great recommendations and stories, and only cost $6 a pop. And it certainly doesn't hurt to get away from the noise.

Only recommendation is to add beer to Happy Hour. Extra happiness for minimal cost.

Thanks for everything, we will be back next year!

We spent two nights here and would have loved to stay longer. The 2 bedroom suite was perfect for our family - 2 adult children (20's), my husband and I. The place was immaculate, beds comfortable, check-in was quick and easy. The kitchen was well-stocked, there were mini Dove Bars in the freezer when we checked in, muffins were delivered in the evening for next morning's breakfast. The decor is modern and high-end - Granite/marble, lots of glass, dual shower heads in master bath, vessel sinks, flat screen TVs. There are two smallish pools in the courtyard that were getting a lot of use the one evening that we were at the hotel.

It is about a 20 minute walk to the western end of Duval where most of the bars are located, not a problem at all for us. We did taxi to the Westin for our boat tour (Danger Tours half day - highly recommended) since we didn't want to deal with parking and were short on time. We never felt unsafe, even walking back during the wee hours of the morning. We were pleasantly surprised to find that food and drink were much less expensive than in Miami, where we spent a couple of days on South Beach. Sunset Pier had buckets of beer 5 for $20, and none of the bars appeared to have cover charges.

We do plan to come back to Key West, it was our favorite stop on our trip. This resort was definitely on the high end of our budget, the cost would be the only thing that would potentially keep us from staying here again or for a longer time. If we are able to splurge again we'll be back.

Absolutely great stay at this hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean and the staff is polite and knowledgeable. Derek the concierge was very helpful in directing us to great restaurants and things to do. The complementary wine and snacks were great around the pool during happy hour!!!

The accommodations were spectacular and spacious. We had a 2nd floor room. Level 1 was the living room, 1/2 bath, and full kitchen. If you wanted to cook everything was there. A closet held a washer/dryer. There were balconys off both the living room and kitchen. Upstairs was the master bedroom and full bath. My understanding is that there are similiar rooms with a 2nd bedroom. The grounds and pool were Key West typical and private. 1 1/2 blocks from the southern end of Duval. Close to everything, yet far enough to be quiet. Derek, the day manager, was very helpful and gracious as was rest of the staff. This is a small property so I suspect it is always full during busy seasons, book ahead. It is certainly one of the best facilities in Key West and part of the Small Luxury Chain of Hotels.

Of particular note, we moved directly from a suite at the Casa Marina to the Santa Maria because of an unexpected need to extend our stay. Our room at the Casa Marina was great and it is always rated among the best places to stay in Key West. The Santa Maria still exceeded our expectations and we would make the Santa Maria our first choice on a return visit to Key West.

Room Tip: From what I can see of the layout, all rooms face the pool on one side and either a parking lot or a...
