... to order 4 appetizers so that we could experience more than one dish. The food was absolutely amazing. We ordered shrimp satay, lobster spring rolls, lobster tacos, and tuna sashimi. It was one of our favorite meals of the trip. And of course, after dinner we went to the bar in our hotel to catch a little football ...

Wow! We had a lot of fun today! Our day started off normally enough- breakfast at mango reef. It started to pour as we were eating on the patio and we thought the day would be ruined.. but afterwards a huge bright rainbow appeared over the ocean! After breakfast, we ...

Island Life

... 9pm and dark by the time I got to my hotel in Turks and Caicos, so I didn’t see much from the taxi ride or when flying in. But waking up late the next morning and looking out from my balcony, I was not disappointed by the hotel complex and the indirect view I have of the ocean. Hotels are ridiculously expensive in the Grace Bay area of the Providenciales island. Guess u can charge what you like when your beach is rated #2 in the world. I couldn’t justify ...

Arrival

After uneventful (and half empty) flights from Philly, we arrived in Provo mid-afternoon.The water was stunning as we came in for a landing. My criteria for selecting an island were crystal clear, calm waters and soft sand. And that's what I saw out the window.

Getting through the airport was a breeze. I don't think it took more than 20 minutes to go through immigration, ...

Providenciales Part I: Something Blue...

... as we stepped foot in the West Bay Club. There's not much else I can say that hasn't already been said about this pink, yellow and orange goodness that is found in every restaurant and hotel bar in Grace Bay, and which ignites many a passionate argument as to who makes the best version. Some hotels try to entice tourists with other tantalizingly named cocktails (sundown shaker anyone?), but this one was my favorite (although Daniel's rum soaked in ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Somerset on Grace Bay Providenciales

    Don't stay at the Luxury Room at the Somerset

    from

    We recently stayed at the Somerset for 6 days, in the "Luxury Room" which, as others have pointed out below that it is not "luxury" at all. The "Luxury Room" at the Somerset is really a small "Lock-Out" room of the 3 bedroom suites.

    On the rise

    from

    We recently stayed at the Somerset for 5 days, in the "luxury room" which, as others have pointed out, is over-priced. The first room they put us in seemed "unfinished" - it was lacking a safe, and had a hole in the ceiling of the bathroom where the vent would go. Also, the shower had a design defect whereby using the shower would flood the entire bathroom. I understand that many of the bathrooms at the hotel have this issue. The hotel staff then moved us to a 2nd room which did not have these issues, but had new ones: there was no hot water, the light in the shower did not work, and there was no "Do not disturb" sign. We, of course, asked multiple times for a "do not disturb" sign but never received one. We resorted to making our own by writing on hotel stationary! By far the most egregious disservice we experienced was the night we returned home from dinner and discovered that the door to our room was ajar with a key marked "master" in it. Yes, the housekeeping staff had BOTH forgotten the master key AND left our room door wide open. Thankfully nothing was taken, but it does not excuse that sort of unacceptable action (which, I might add, would never happen at a Four Seasons or St. Regis resort). As these points suggest, the Somerset is not quite at the point of being a true luxury hotel.

    Excellent hotel, a few issues

    from

    I rated the hotel a 3 star to even out the overall rating. The property is gorgeous, but the service is still lacking.

    Truly a Fantastic and Gracious Place to Vacation

    from

    We just returned from a 6 day stay at the Somerset., and were extremely impressed with the accomodations and the staff. Everyone from the bellman to the concierge to the staff at the beach were incredibly friendly and helpful. We had massages in our room and rented a car for the day and Justine the concierge arranged everything without a hitch. Dinner reservations were followed by printed confirmation cards slipped under the door. During our stay we visited a number of the other resorts along Grace Bay and really felt as though the Somerset was the nicest of them. The grounds and pool flow very gracefully to the beach; it is very thoughfully and elegantly designed. The rooms come equipped with almost every conceivable amenity and, as the place is brand new, everything works flawlessly.

    Best place on Grace Bay

    from

    Just returned from a week at the Somerset. It is the best place to stay on Grace Bay. The suites are beautiful and they keep them spotless. We never even felt one grain of sand on the marble floors. The bedding is wonderful and the furniture all very comfortable as well as beautiful. Yhere was an Ipod dock in the bedroom and a plasma TV in bedroom and living room. There is also a DVD player but bring your own DVDs-they don't have a library of DVD's yet. We wished we had brought a few games also since it rained allot. We did go next door to the Palms store and bought cards- $7 a pack. They came and cleaned right away in the morning and did a nice turn down and quick clean every evening.

    Best Place I've Ever Stayed

    from

    This property primarily caters to individuals looking to own and the service is impeccable. The "rooms" are really more like large, nicely upgraded, and beautifully decorated condos. The suites range from 2,500 - 5,000 square feet. WOW. We stayed in a Sterling suite with a gorgeous view of the infinity pool and ocean. Breathtaking!

    Beautiful new hotel

    from

    The Somerset exceeded my expectations and I would definitely stay there again. The hotel is very new, and although that brings a few growing pains, it is in prime condition. We stayed in a very small studio room that was an excellent value at roughly $300/nt. The furnishings are top quality, as are the linens, fixtures, flooring, etc. The hotel has invested in modern electronic amenities, including free wireless in the hotel rooms, an IPod docking station and flat screen TVs. The "growing pains" were limited: waterjets in bathtub didn't work, slow/poor service on occasion, and the restaurant didn't open until our last night after a 6-month delay. If you go there, you may want to bring your own DVDs (they don't provide any for rent) as there is very little to do after the sun goes down.

    Best hotel in provo

    from

    My family and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Somerset. I visited other hotels in Grace Bay and this is the best property hands down. This is truly an elegant property. We had a three bedroom ocean view room for our family of six (myself, my wife, our three young children and our nanny). The room was absolutely fantastic. It included plasma screen TV's, Viking appliances, and upgraded furnishings. There is even a gas grill and jacuzzi on the oversized balcony.

    One of my favorite resorts in the world!

    from

    I've been around the world, and stayed at some of the best resorts. I was lucky enough to get a pre-opening special at the Somerset. It was fantastic. They are still under construction in parts, and the restaurant wasn't open. Because of this, I received a phone call in the States to see how they could stock the refridgerator and where I could eat breakfast, etc. They opened the beach bar the first day we were there. The bartender overheard that my 4 year old loves Cheetos, and the next day there were Cheetos at the bar! Everything was like that. We had a 3 bedroom third floor unit, and all I can say is I wish my house was like this. Gorgeous kitchen, gorgeous furniture, and a huge balcony with a gorgeous view. They gave a tour of the other types of rooms, and of the future restaurant. All I can say, is it's going to get better. Our unit took up the whole floor. (It was in the Estate section.) It had 5 plasma TV's, and an X-Box. There was a Viking Stainless outdoor grill and a beautiful hottub on the balcony. The grill was nicer than the one I have at home. It seems they are trying to think of everything. Of course, it's on one of the world's most stunning beaches.
