We booked our trip to Key West for our 20 year anniversary. based on tripadvior, we were not disappointed. Probably one of the most peaceful times we have had in...maybe 20 years. First, they really should put rubber bumpers on the doors, that is really the only complaint I have. We named the couple next door the "slammer" family, due to the fact that they would open the door all the way and let it go...wow that's loud, but it doesn't have to be really too disturbing, we had to kinda laugh about it. Actually, common courtesy should prevail here, not a problem of the resort. Most of the rooms have palms and several other local trees and shrubs in front of the balconies, so the privacy is perfect, yet we could see the pool and the fountains. There is music from the bushes all day and night, (low volume at night, perfect for a stroll, or in our case a stumble..) The place is almost "Disney-esc". the crew cleaned the walkways and pool area every morning before most people got up. the lighting on the local plants is beautiful. As usual the pictures on the website are deceiving, the rooms are a little small, but hey, I don't wanna play tennis in there. There's a bed and a bathroom and a TV, all clean and used for one purpose. Its very modern and architecturally beautiful. We noticed on the balcony how nice and clean the glass was and the ceiling, very white and no cobwebs, it looked new. Oh, and it seems there is a power outlet every 3 feet on every wall. even on the balcony. The Kitchen was out of a Martha Stewart magazine. Sub-zero freezer and Fridge, all the plates, glasses and coffee mugs you'll need, dishwasher, laundry room, stove, microwave, coffee pot, Probably a $15 thousand dollar kitchen. We had WiFi, so one evening after a leisure stroll down to Duval and the party area. I hooked up the laptop to the HDMI port on the living room TV and logged into netflix and watched a couple of our shows.. Speaking of Duval, It's spring break here and the party's are wild,But not at the Santa Maria, I think they price it so that crazy Kids don't party here all night. We walked from Santa Maria all the way to the Cruise ships and Malory square easily..This place seems perfectly located to all you'll want to see here in Key West. You could throw a rock and hit the southernmost Buoy. I'll admit it, I'm lazy and still walked the Duval Gauntlet. it was fun, hit almost every bar, The beach is around the corner and quite a sight. A big Thank you to NordI at the front desk and Derek at the tiki bar for there help in picking all the restaurants and other things we asked. The big muffins for the morning and the dove bars and chocolate for the evening were a nice touch. The sushi bar on the other side of the pool is supposed to be one of the finest here in Key West. but where I come from it's called "bait"
