Perfect Location, Poor Service

Spent there a week in August in one of the Garden Villas. The location is unbeatable, with very good access to Grace Bay and a 5min bicycle ride from restaurants and shops nearby. Rooms are spacious, the pool is great and the hotel offers great amenities (great pool, complimentary water sports, complimentary bicycles, etc.) The staff (except for some exceptions) is terrible but that might be commonplace across the island. Everything works extremely slow and nobody is particularly pleasant. Some things are just unbecoming of a 5 star hotel: running out of orange juice for breakfast, dirty floors in the rooms, 1 hour wait for a sandwich at the pool, etc. All in all, the place is worth it in spite of a terrible service just on the merits of its location and pool.

Bay Bistro, right next to the Somerset was one of the few places where the service was good. Great ice cream as well.

Beautiful Spring Break

We visited the Somerset for spring break and it was absolutely beautiful. The resort is extremely clean and the staff is beyond excellent. Our cottage had more space than we even needed. It provided two large bedrooms with super comfortable beds. It had all of the comforts of a home. We had a fully-equipped kitchen, large living room and laundry. The beach is gorgeous. The resort had beach chairs, umbrellas and endless beach towels. We had immediate access to snorkel equipment, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, and Hobie catamaran sail boats. It kept our family entertained. The swimming pool was also awesome with a great pool restaurant / bar. Somerset is located on Grace Bay with so many restaurant options within walking distance and walking distance to the reefs for snorkeling. We loved our stay at Somerset and plan to return next year. It's perfect for families.

Grace Bay

Concierge was very good at arranging water sports, i.e. water skiing, jet skiing, kayaking and for making dinner reservations. Hotel has only one restaurant and pool side cafe for lunch only. They did not have their own spa, but the one next door at the Regent Palms easily accessible. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.

If you visit during a busy season (we went between Christmas and New Year) make sure to book dinner reservations as soon as you can. Restaurants were fully booked for New Years Eve.

Rooms at the Somerset on Grace Bay

Hotel common areas were beautiful but the room was so small you could not even do stretching exercises on the floor. Could have been a former linen closet with a bathroom added.

Da Conch Shack was worth the drive, but other than that, you have the typical glitzy restaurants. Everything was a $25 cab ride away.

Do not stay in a standard room

The hotel should never rent the standard garden rooms. They are small, without adequate seating, no patio, poorly located on the property. We had to upgrade and it cost us several hundred dollars a day to do so. The rest of the hotel is very nice, pool, beach, ambiance. Small fitness center. No spa and limited eating on the property. The O Soleil restaurant is great. Food is good but limited. This is a small luxury hotel

Almost paradise

The facility itself is very nice, so if you can't enjoy your stay here, you probably won't enjoy anywhere. Initially, we were put in a ground floor unit which really didn't have any ocean view whatsoever, but didn't complain. Then, however, the icemaker was not making ice and the refrigerator was not keeping anything cold. Maintenance assessed the problem and moved us to a different room on an upper floor exactly two floor straight up from where we were. Much better view, but several lightbulbs were burned out or missing and were never changed or replaced, even though I left notes each day. Free shuttle is provided by the casinos if you choose to go. Staff was very accomodating about getting taxis timely. Great location close enough to walk to several restaurants and also to shops at The Salt Mill shopping area (but we are big walkers)... it's a 20 minute walk to the shopping area. All in all, it's a very nice place. Kayaks and snorkeling grear were available, and it's a nice walk down the beach to a great snorkeling area. There was a representative at the airport from the hotel that got your taxi for you. The taxi charge is added to your hotel bill. Continental breakfast was included (?) but my daughter and I went one morning. Very short staffed in the restaurant. We waited 20 minutes for a table, although there were many empty tables; about 20 minutes for 1 glass of water, even though we both ordered water, and at least another 1/2 hour before a small basket w/ 2 scones, 2 slices of banana bread and 2 croissants and a very small plate of fruit were delivered. The baskets on other tables were twice the size, so maybe it wasn't clear we both wanted something??? There was plenty for both of us, but service was definitely lacking for breakfast. I can't imagine how long it might have taken if we had actually ordered something that required preparation. Fitness facility had 2 treadmills, one eliptical that worked but squealed and needed some repairs, 2 bikes, some free weights and a few weight machines. It was adequate, but far from superior.

The Salt Mills has several stores and restaurants and is about a 20 minutes stroll. Great for breakfast or lunch if you are into walking. Night time, I'd recommend going in a vehicle.
