We've just returned from our first overseas family holiday, with our 1yo and 3yo. The Somerset Bencoolen was fantastic. We had a 2 BR apartment which met our needs perfectly. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful, and within a few days knew all of our names. The apt was great, each bedroom and the living area had a separate split system air con unit, which we could control. The pool area was also great - in addition to the lap pool there was a wading pool (at the end of the lap pool), a separate toddler pool and a spa. The playground was small, but had good equipment and was shaded in the afternoon. Breakfast was served in a dining room with a terrace leading from it, so we could sit down and eat and let the boys run around without them bugging other people trying to eat. The only glitch with the place was that at peak times the hot water in our shower was lacking. Apart from that I couldn't fault it. Great location too - a few supermarkets nearby, great food court just down the road (which also did takeaway), and could walk to most places we wanted to go. Overall, a great place to stay, esp with young children.
