“Peaceful ...”
Reviewed July 26, 2009

Stayed for 2 weeks .. loved it ... apart from the fact that our cottages did not have air conditioning which was sooooooo badly needed. We had a ceiling fan and a stand fan which was not enough.!!!

Summerset Village is located just around the corner from Rick's Cafe (world famous supposedly) but you will need transport to get around as it is a bit off the beaten track. Bunny is usually on site to take you out and about and his prices are very reasonable.

Staying at the Village was a good experience. Special thanks to Indian for being a wonderful chef, Ms Campbell for letting me use the internet when she should have been working (sorry for the interruptions) and to Boomblast for the mangoes and for teaching me about turtles. All the staff were courteous and very helpful. Anything you required, they did for you. Also thanks to Bunny for being a good tour guide.

See you next year (God willing)

Hello Gregg,
oh I hate to leave but time is running short so I thought to give you a little feedback & update before I'm off.
I declare Miss Campbell is taking real good care of this place so don't you worry, Mr.President!
In #5 I got fresh towels & sheets whenever needed, the shower has been fixed. Steven immediately took care of them partly ripped off miquito screens on my bedroom windows so them bugs wont bug me or anyone moving in after me: man, it was raining pretty hard at noon time yet that guy was standing out there tacking them screens properly!
Sanchez & the Indian are doing a perfect job to feed & serve the guests for their best the cocktail & fruit drinks are still as delicious as ever
Glen & Steven are always busy keeping the yard in a good shape & the people safe at night. Pauline did my washing + ironing perfectly & Blossom.... well she showed up from time to time
so you see:
I left lots of money at the bar & restaurant so it's even in a bit better shape than before and NO COMPLAINTS from me, Sir!
I had a good time back here in Jamaica & Summerset Village
and if the Lord don't mind it one thing is for sure mi soon come back: next year same time so please keep #5 in shape for me till I'm back!
Thanks & take care
sincerely
Michael

The grounds are beautiful, the staffr friendly, the location is authentic Nrgril. This is not the place for those who want an isolated touristed experience. This is for people who really want to enjoy the culture and company of Jamaicans. I loved it!

If you're looking for a posh resort where your every whim is met with staff falling all over themselves to help you, this is not the place for you. If you want someplace quaint, quiet, homey, comfortable, clean and accommodating, consider Sommerset Village. If you want to visit Jamaica, you can do so in a posh resort. If you want to experience Jamaica, come to Sommerset Village. My family and I will stay NO WHERE ELSE!

  • Liked — quiet and opportunity to interact with Jamaican community
  • Disliked — nothing...liked it all.

I first stayed at this hotel in 2006, i visualized staying there years previously whilst staying at Devine Destiny, ( word to the wise never stay here!!) I stayed in the octangan hut that did not have a full kitchen it has a fridge and a sink, the problem with the hut was the stairs it was as if i was on a Japanese game show the stairs are so steep, i thought i would fall down, however during my two week stay i did not , the toilet bowl leaked very time it was used. I also stayed at Summerset Village in 2007, and stayed near the pool area, the room was large and clean, the orignal room i was given was located at the far side of the property and all the TV's and A/C on this side did not work.
The staff were nice, execpt for the night watchman who was very rude.

I am from Indianapolis, IN and I vacationed in Jamaica Jan 18-25, 2008. I stayed at Summerset Village because it came highly recommended from several friends who have traveled to Jamaica and stayed there. The staff went above & beyond their job duties!! Great, friendly and very accommodating. I was traveling by myself & I felt at home and very safe here !! The food was delicious and well prepared. When I made a request for extra towels, etc I did not have to wait. My room was clean when I arrived and cleaned every day.
This was my 1st time in Jamaica and I have no doubts that when I return next year I will be staying at Summerset Village.

  • Liked — Hospitality & Saftey
  • Disliked — one day I did not have hot water...but that happens a lot in Jamaica

Staying at Summerset was brillant, could not ask for a better location. Coming here was all about seeing Jamaica and not being stuck behind metal gates or indoors. It was the perfect place to stay as it was close to main attractions such as Ricks Cafe and the beach. The rooms were very nice and comfortable and cleaned to high standards, food excellent, staff really friendly and helpful and security very tight (Glen). Definately coming back again to stay in the exact same place, could'nt ask for anything more.
