We visited in January over the MLK holiday. It must be a time in between two bigger holidays because the hotel wasn't busy and neither were the ones around it. It was perfect! He had an extremely large one bedroom in the Sterling building. The balcony faced the beach and even though it is set far back, it was still nice. Everything worked in the unit and the decor was beautiful. We did not book through the hotel so our services were a little bit different, I assume. I say assume because although I called and also visited the front desk for cleaning service, our room was never serviced in the 3 days we were there and NO one ever said it was not included in our reservation. They just said she was coming. I didn't bother complaining or inquiring a third time because at that point, I didn't care for someone to make my bed or clean up. We were tidy. If you are booking through a 3rd party or through an owner, ask for the details if this would bother you. The location of the hotel is great. While the Somerset is small and private, there is a large resort (Regent Palms) next door with shops and a spa. I preferred the ambiance of the Somerset and like that there was a walk way to the Regents if I needed anything from the convenience store or clothing shops. We had breakfast at the Somerset (the restaurant to the back of the resort) and while it was good, I would only recommend it if it was included in the room reservation. The a la carte prices are high for what they served and where the restaurant was located. We had lunch by the pool and that was nice. The food was good and the view could not be beat. For the rest of our meals, we ate at other hotels since they have their restaurants beachfront and are only 5-10 minute walk away. The breakfast was great at Hemingways and worth the walk and the prices. I would absolutely come back to the Somerset if the rates were good. It is a gorgeous hotel but in my opinion, not worth the high season prices. Low season prices? Yes!
**Almost forgot to mention. Wi-fi never worked while we were there. They sent a tech person who says something was broken and left. I was all over the resort and never got service. I saw on other posts that this is a problem. I connected at other hotels to check my email while having breakfast (I was using on iPhone not a laptop) but that was pain.
