“Incredible!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

One of the most memorable, wonderful places I've ever stayed. My boyfriend and I ended up extending our stay in Key West longer than we'd initially planned on being down there, THAT'S how much we loved the Santa Maria. It was one of the most romantic, fun experiences I've ever had.

The room was jaw-dropping: two floors, two bathrooms, three private patios (two of which overlook the pool), a full kitchen [which sadly, I didn't get the chance to use], muffins and ice cream delivered with turn-down service every night, comfy bed, spacious living room, the works. It doesn't get better than this (and for the price, it is an absolute steal)!!

The staff was also outstanding, gold stars, A+++. They helped us plan a trip out to the Dry Tortugas, had great recommendations about where to eat, what to do, etc, and were generally extremely pleasant.

A true pleasure staying here and getting to experience this place. If you are considering staying elsewhere in Key West, I have one word for you: DON'T!

Room Tip: I get the feeling every room here is a good - nay, GREAT - room...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel in 2013! The rooms were amazing and had everything that we needed and more, they had a big beautiful kitchen with every appliance that a normal kitchen has, a big beautiful living room with plenty of room to sit down and hang out in, a huge bedroom with a gorgeous tile shower, a washer and dryer, and a decent sized front porch to sit out on!! One night we had supper at the Ambrosia restaurant that was connected to the hotel. I had never really tried Sushi up until that night and it was amazing! The dinner, the wine, and the rooms were great and I would definitely recommend this hotel!!

This hotel is located in a walking distance to Duval Street which is where all the action happens. We booked this hotel in the very last minute while driving there. I don't know what the regular rates are but we paid $400 plus taxes plus resort fee and in my opinion was a little overpriced. The are competitive with other hotel rates but if you want to have your private beach then for an extra $200 might be worth it to book the Astoria hotel next to it.

We were lucky and we were upgraded to a king suite room, which consisted in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom, and kitchen with plenty of complimentary bottled water. The bathrooms are not big and they only had showers, no tubs. They also provide free WIFI..

The pool is very small with plenty of chairs (probably not enough if the hotel is at a maximum capacity). The crowd is a hit or miss. We saw a lot of old people, families with babies and party people. The hotel was quite and clean but be aware of the mosquitos!

The staff is really friendly.

Room Tip: Ambrosia restaurant in the hotel with great sushi.

Key West in general is a pretty expensive town to live and visit due to the location....150 miles from the main land...even more expensive than New York City but you can't get the uniqueness of Key West anywhere else in the world.

We arrived at our resort and was so excited to see that the pictures didn't do the resort justice. Beautiful pools, lush landscaping. Staff was so accommodating with needs either at resort or just recommendations for dining, attractions. 2 BR 2Bath condo was meticulously kept, very comfortable. They spared no expense in making this resort top notch. Highly recommend this resort to vacationers headed for the Keys. Our first visit to Key West and so glad we stayed there. It's on the quiet end of Duval so if you're looking to be in the middle of the craziness not what you want but if you're looking for a great place, kid friendly and only 10 minute walk to the center of activity this is definitely the place to stay.

Room Tip: We had ground floor suite not directly in front of the pools. Didn't mind the side placement. N...

Santa Maria is right off Duval Street, but the beauty of it is, that it is the QUIET part of Duval Street.

You can walk down, enjoy all the bars and entertainment just a couple blocks away, and then escape to your quiet part and be away from it all when you want your serenity of the Keys.

It is truly, the BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

very spacious and clean room, modern and tasteful. The pool was ok, the beach next to it is pretty horrible. but I did not enjoy Key West general. its more a party place to go on the week end and not a couples place.
