Nice place to stay. Pool wasn’t open late. Unfortunately didn’t get there till late. Sad

Great location. Rooms were always cleaned twice daily

Very nice hotel, close to the beach and Duval Street. Helpful and friendly staff!

Clean, beautiful suite, friendly staff great location. You can walk to dual street but hotel in a quieter location so you can relax.

Place has everything you need , staff very helpful, fantastic location, free parking!, I will come back!

Great lay-out with 2 separate bedrooms and living area/kitchen. Staff is very friendly and understands customer service

Had a great time. Convenient location and parking. Still very quiet at night. Cleanness and room service is excellent.

We had a great experience at this resort during our vacation over Thanksgiving.

I stayed at this hotel with a group of friends after hurricane Irma. The hotel is beautiful and nicely located near Duval Street. The TV's weren't working during our stay, but the staff was very accommodating and waived the resort fee for the inconvenience. This really didn't bother us as we were not there to watch TV. We also thoroughly enjoyed the daily free Happy Hour by the pool. We are very happy that Key West is up and running and Irma didn't destroy this beautiful town. I look forward to going back.

Great Hotel! We would definitely stay here again! I loved free smoothies at the pool. The pool was open at night which was perfect for us travelling with the baby!

You out to the street and turn right and travel through the neighborhood and get to the beach, dog park, playground, and an at ease feeling. Turn left go over Sourthermost point or up Duval with lots of tourist types, shops and things to see. Butterflies, lighthouse, Hemingway House, Truman Little White House, and Mallory Square. Walk or ride, drive if you want. Return and relax by the pool or on your own quite porch. It is all there and easy.

We loved this hotel! We travel often with our children and we are always looking for a hotel that is friendly and accommodating to families, as well as fun for adults. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The happy hour by the pool was fun for the adults. The kids loved the smoothies, fresh fruit and muffins every morning! I would recommend this hotel to any family traveling to Key West. We would definitely return! Thank you Santa Maria Suites!

this hotel was amazing. Five of us stayed in the two level suite. Better than expected. staff in the pool area rea amazing when they seee you find a chair they are right there bringing towels and chair covers. loved the free smoothies by the pool. location is great would definately stay there again

Everything was wonderful. Clean, neat, nicely decorated and comfortable. Only suggestion is that when leaving the complimentary breakfast bread/ muffins, put them in the fridge instead of on the kitchen counter. Tiny little bugs invaded any food left out. Otherwise never saw any bugs at all.

We loved this resort! Very comfortable and the free happy hour and smoothies were huge plus by the pool! Will definitely go back

If you are looking for a stay on the hustle and bustle of downtown Duval, this is not your place. Quiet, peaceful, but just a short stroll to the happenings. Beautiful rooms, friendly staff, and oh, the mocha smoothies by the pool!!! Great place for families, this is a very small boutique hotel with only 30 some units. Recommend the two bed king one floor king rooms. Also, if you are planning to stay, advise the hotel staff when you are going out to clean your room. They clean check its first, then the others. You may not have your on cleaned until after five if you don't.

Good Location and clean hotel. Family friendly stay.

First trip to Key West - four high school friends celebrating turning 60. In every way the location and the Santa Maria surpassed our expectations. We are all very seasoned travelers - bordering on the travel snob mentality, and we were all thrilled with the resort's modern suites - from the kitchen to the comfy beds to the wide screen tvs. The Dove ice cream minis placed daily in our freezer are a special treat, but the morning muffins could be replaced with a healthier, more appealing variety. The suite was immaculate - as is the pool area. Love the always-available lemonade and fruit-immersed water at the pool, the yummy complimentary frozen smoothies and the happy hour! Front desk personnel were super friendly and accommodating. The location - at the quiet end of Duval was perfect for us, and despite the property being completely booked, the pool area remained relatively empty. We felt as if we had the property all to ourselves! Although the beach is what it is, having access to lounge chairs, the beautiful ocean view and a friendly beach boy we enjoyed two restful afternoons under the palm trees. Daily long walks, runs, a bike ride around the island, and a sunset sail on the Spirit of Independence helped burn off some calories. May weather called for blue skies, cotton ball clouds, trade winds and warm evenings. Luckily we reached out to a former colleague who lives in the area for dining recommendations, and we made our reservations prior to our trip. All were in walking distance of the Santa Maria. In every way, the Santa Maria far surpassed our expectations. We can't wait to return one day with our families.

We got a king suit, although a bit pricey but splitting with friends was reasonable for the service and amenities. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall a good experience.

We were a group of 9 and stayed there for a weekend. The suites are really clean and big enough for a group. Kitchens have all you need to cook if you need to. We loved the wine happy hour and the free smoothies all day. Great location and just far enough from the craziness of Duval Street so you're not bothered at night. Would definitely recomment this property!
