Santa Maria Suites Hotel
Ranked #6 of 51 Hotels in Key West
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 April 2012

I stayed with my wife and kids (13 and 11) at the Santa Maria Suites during Presidents' Week 2012. Much of what is written in other reviews is accurate - the place is clean, the rooms are nice and big, the people are friendly and Derrick is wonderful.

Make no mistake, however, this is a really small boutique hotel - it is not a resort. At the hotel itself, other than sitting by the pool, there is nothing to do (there is a Japanese restaurant on site that we did not try).

The location is really good - about a 2 block walk to the nearest beach (which is small and not really that nice, but Key West is not exactly known for its beaches anyway - all of them are very rocky and there is lots of seaweed at most - Zachary Taylor Park is one of the best beaches on Key West), and about a 5-10 minute walk to many good restaurants and shopping on Duval Street. The really busy, touristy part of Duvall is about a 20 minute walk from the hotel.

I would stay here again, but if I went back to Key West with my kids, I would probably looks to stay somewhere else . . .

We stayed at the Santa Maria Suites for three nights at the end of March. The accommodations were very nice. Two-level condo, full kitchen, 3 flat screens - one in the living room area and one in each of the bedrooms. The bedrooms were a little tight, but comfortable. The only advice I would give is if you want to be in the midst of nightlife, you really need to stay at the other end of Duval Street. If you're looking for quiet, this is the area. Otherwise, the Pier House or one of the hotels at that end of Duval is closer to all the nightlife! If you don't mind walking, it's not a problem. Also, you have a pass to the private beach at Southermost. The beach is small, but nice, although they don't rake it and there's a lot of seaweed.

5 stars is generous as this is no Four Seasons but it definately beat expectations. Spacious newly renovated quiet rooms with granite kitchens and separation for parents and kids. No view of water but great pool area with staff who is very attentive to details and customer needs. 1 blk. to Duvall but probably 1/2 mile to "heart" of action... which can be a good thing. Convenient to a variety of restaurants, grocery, and activities. Rent bikes and save the traffic problems. "Workout room" is kind of lacking but for a small hotel - I'm glad they had one.

Room Tip: There are a handful of rooms that overlook the parking lot - but they also have a pool view so I'...

Back from a relaxing and enjoyable stay in Key West at Santa Maria Suites. Stayed in the 2BR, 2.5 bath, 2 story suite. Bedrooms and baths are clean and comfortable, and quiet. Nice balconies overlooking pool. Kitchen is up to date and you can cook any meal there (Fausto's for larger grocery trip, just a few blocks away -took the bikes). We parked the car upon arrival, and biked/walked for the entire stay. Short trip anywhere, yet in the "quiet" part of Key West. Ana's across the street for great coffee and breakfast.
The staff were the best -Derek and Ken -and I'm sure all the other team members, too. Polite, friendly, very helpful and attentive -ensuring everyone was taken care of - smoothies, drinks, towels, water, etc. where to go, see, eat, etc. Our family will definitely stay again. Wonderful and magnificent stay.

I just got back from a girls vacation in Key West. Stayed at the Santa Maria Suites...It was AWESOME. We had a flat on the upper level. It was absolutely gorgeous. The pictures on the website do not do the resort justice. The resort is one block from the beach with chairs offered at no charge for resort guests. There are a few things you should know that are not on the website..Fresh fruit, smoothies and water are offered all day by the pool free of charge. There is also a free happy hour every day from 4-5:30, serving Robert Mondavi wine with chips and hummus. There is turndown service every night. Dove Chocolates are left on ea pillow along with fresh muffins for breakfast and snack size Dove Chocolate ice cream treats in the freezer.
Ken at the Front desk and our concierge Derek were fantastic. They recommended places to eat, made reservations for dinner, reservations for the show at La-Te-Da's and arranged bike rentals. I will definitely recommend this resort to everyone.. If I could, I would give a rating higher than excellent
