My wife and I flew to Turks & Caicos following our wedding weekend, staying at the Somerset, and it could not have been a better week. A great venue, very picturesque, awesome cottages and the food was generally outstanding. It was the "offseason", so it was largely empty for most of the week we were there until the July 4th weekend -- a fact that was very much appreciated given that we were escaping the grind of NYC.
One thing to remember going in is that the service is considerably slower on the island, so once you can get past the fact that food and beverage will take the scenic route to your table or beach chair, it's all good. That is no slight towards the Somerset though, it's really area-wide.
The service was friendly for the most part, although we ran into a couple servers that didn't seem to be having very good days. Regardless, that didn't sour the trip at all -- just a fantastic place to go, particularly in the offseason when there are better deals and fewer people (if you're looking to get away rather than meet random couples).
