Somerset on Grace Bay
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Spent over $17,000 for a six night stay for 5 people. There were only 2 beds in the "suite". The nasty natives acted like they were doing me a favor by finally bringing a sleeper bed to plop in the living room. Horrible service and accommodations. My mentally handicapped son was disparaged and we felt threated and left after 2 nights in hell. I always thought that a beautiful beach and nice pool was all I needed for a wonderful vacation. Boy was that WRONG. Ugly Island and nasty natives. Go anywhere else.
My first time going to Turks and Caicos. I researched for months. I went with the Somerset because friends of mine had stayed there last year. The hotel exceeds expectations. The views are exactly what is depicted on the website. The service at the hotel was impeccable. Everyone was so nice and helpful.We were greeted with rum punch at check in. it was very good! The rooms are outstanding. To my understanding each unit is privately owned, they are huge and very clean, very spacious and decorated beautifully. We had a penthouse unit. The building that faced the pool and beach. we had 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms which was wonderful when it was time to shower. the couch was full L shaped couch a tv in every room .. huge kitchen table, wrap around sliding doors leading to the balcony. The kitchen had everything in it. Full fridge,sink, dishwasher, silverware. We were given a gallon of water,and complimentary small bottle of rum and rum cake. Upon arrival there was a full size birthday cake and balloons waiting for my daughter who's birthday was that week .. BTW the cake was delicious!! Robes & slippers, even a washer and dryer! when we went into our room we didn't know if i wanted to stay in the room or go to the beach. The master suite had a separate door and hallway inside of that door was our huge bathroom!! jacuzzi tub walk in shower, separate area for the double vanity.bed and bed linens were superior. i cant say enough about the room and grounds of this hotel. The beach and pool had waiters and waitresses that came around to take your orders for food and beverages. One of my requirements for staying at a resort is beach and pool service. It was wonderful and the food and drinks were excellent. I was on vacation with my husband , sister and 2 young teenage children. The hotel isn't really kid friendly as far as the pool or activities. The pool is very low key. Beautiful infinity pool. The chairs were very nice too, not a lot of sun on the pool area. beach and pool towels thick and clean, just gorgeous all around. There wasn't island music playing ( i would have enjoyed that) the only thing we didn't like about the hotel was the restaurant , you received a continental breakfast each morning.We are used to this being put out on a display and you being able to pick what you want as you want it. here you had to sit down and order each item you wanted, not everything was listed so you didn't know all they had to offer ,it made it a little awkward to keep asking for things. the food was ok, the staff were really nice but always seemed behind even though we were the only guest most days which felt a little odd. I found out from the hotel that the restaurant is separate. the hotel doesn't own it,but they use it for the continental breakfast and cocktail hour. so leaving the resort the cab fare is outrageous for a family. $70 each way to and from airport. every time we wanted to go somewhere and eat ,it cost us $40 each way.food is super expensive on the island. From the beach you can do a boat excursion. you can book ahead of time or while you are actually sitting on beach people walk around with flyers, I would def recommend taking a half day excursion it was a great experience. our weather was perfect, the water was breathtaking, we went to an Italian restaurant that was very good Bella something(ugh i cant remember) also an Irish pub on the main strip newer place really good.
We stayed at the Somerset the first week in May and consider ourselves a tad fussy. This seemed like a perfect time to visit as the resort was not overcrowded which we very much appreciated. I do agree with a previous reviewer that the food at the Pavilion Restaurant was less than average, but there are plenty of fabulous restaurants on the island at which to dine. We stayed in a residence townhouse which was spacious, immaculate and well appointed. The staff was excellent from the housekeeper (Brenda) to the desk staff (Billy) concierge (Adrian) pool bar (Cynthia) to the beach staff ( Bernard and most especially Rico who was a delight). They all made you feel like they wanted you to be there which was an exceptional quality! To my eye, nothing was left unattended. The pool here is gorgeous and well maintained, much nicer than some of the pricier resorts we visited. Would definitely return to this little slice of heaven..
We stayed at the Somerset last July for our summer beach trip. Turks has amazing beaches and incredible water. Though we enjoyed our trip thoroughly and would return to the island, I would not stay at Somerset again. The main restaraunt on the resort was less than average to be kind. My biggest issue with this resort was the service on the beach. There were many times that we would have to get up, leave the beach, and walk up to the pool to order food or drinks. This happened throughout the week. There was no sense of urgency from the employees on property to help until you went out of your way to get their attention. Gorgeous beach, but much better options to stay close by.
We travelled to this amazing resort for a week and were not disappointed - the hospitality from the moment we arrived was warm and helpful. We even were upgraded to an ocean view when it was available and the suites are spectacular - all huge with a space that feels like a vacation condo. Massive balconies for outdoor dining and comfort, and an incredible pool area that leads down to the most spectacular beach! The resort held a really fun beach BBQ on Tuesday night which included a fire eating show which we enjoyed! And Adrian at concierge was always helpful in recommending great dining spots and things to do! We highly r commend this spot, especially for couples, families and larger groups of couples or families!
