Great location, staff lacking

Overall the experience was fine- I'm very happy with the location of the hotel, but was annoyed by the front desk clerk, who seemed strangely happy to let me know about additional fees that I would be paying-- I'm not going to be staying there again.

First time traveler to Key West

Loved the location! Perfect when you wanted to jump into the action and perfect when you just wanted to relax poolside. My only complaint is the bed was a platform bed, close to the ground and I kept bumping my toes against the platform. Rented a bike and just cruised everywhere! Derek the pool concierge was the best! He arranged an extraordinary massage for me in my unit! Great trip...too short!

couples getaway

2 bedroom suite --husband & I went with another couple. Great place to stay --- loved all the extra things they do (free smoothies and fruit around pool from 10AM to 5PM. Small dove ice cream bars left in refridgerator each night & muffins left in room each night for the next AM. Also, chocolate candy left on pillows when beds turned down). Bedrooms and baths --a little bit small but adequate. Nice kitchen and living room downstairs.

Wedding destination getaway

The staff was fantastic and friendly. The service and extra amenities were great...free smoothies, free sunscreen availability poolside, the muffins, etc. My only complaint is that our room was upstairs and much smaller than the room downstairs. There was hardly any space between the bedroom and bed placement and any room in the bathroom. Our friends downstairs room was 4 times more spacious.

Sleek, Modern Beach Get-Away

We were very happy with the Santa Maria. Very beautiful place to stay. The overall "room" was large (condo setup), however the bedroom was pretty small. Great location and very friendly and helpful staff. We would stay there, again!

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Rent a bike while in Key West - the hotel has coupons for a discount. You can explore the island on a bicycle - no need to rent a car.
