Trip Report Just back from The Somerset

Jump to last reply

My wife and I just returned from 10 nights at The Somerset ( our 2nd time this year) It was just wonderful! We stayed in a 1 BR English Cottage with a view of the lawn and it was perfect. Last time we stayed in an ocean view Sterling unit --not worth the extra $$ IMO. We walk early, have the included breakfast ( very good and enough fruit) , hit the beach/pool, have cocktails in the unit ,freshen up for dinner and it's dark at night --so oceanview is not needed by us. We loved the unit , 2nd floor, 2 full baths, loft with 2 chairs and a desk, Viking kitchen, marble everywhere...wonderful!
We are big chillers so we read, walk,swim and get sun --that is it! We rented from Grace Bay Car Rentals, excellent service, $39.00/day, older Toyota but, fine! We went to the new IGA ( Graceway Gourmet) FANTASTIC, new . clean and had all that we wanted. Picked up snacks, vodka, Tonic, limes , beer, and wine . We ate the included breakfast as I said, had lunch most days at LunaSea at Somerset-excellent Burgers, Pizza and fish sandwiches-wonderful staff -shout out to Alex and Jonathan! We also walked to Somewhere on the beach ( Coral Gardens) for lunch is was good. Also walked to Bay Bistro next door for excellent fish & Chips for lunch!
Dinners--our best dinner ( twice) was O'Soleil at the Somerset, under the stars, Daniel & Nadine singing and wonderful food!
Coco Bistro-great setting, excellent fish.
Caicos Cafe-always excellent, wonderful specials.
Bay Bistro- Conch crepe apptz. to die for.
P 23 at The Regent Palms-very good , excellent setting and Daniel & Nadine were singing there too!!
Conch Shack-for casual night
Mango Reef(twice) best menu
Magnolia-Tuna !!
Thanks to the great staff at The Somerset-love Eva for making our reservations and the fantastic O'Soleil staff remembered us !!
We shoppped around Saltmills, Regent Village , drove to Chalk Sound etc to look at Villas But, really just chilled...back in Feb 2010 ...already counting the days!!
