We have just returned from Soma following a 2 week stay in March and had an excellent time. In terms of a trip from the UK its fairly pricey with flights etc but you do get value for money.
The accomadation is first rate, rooms are very clean and tidy with air con for those hot days. Soma itself is a fairly small set up and as a result never feels crowded. The layout and set up of the rooms is great and offers enough space for peace and quiet but also lends its self well to meeting other guests. The restauraunt is the hub and during our stay everyone ended up having meals together which really added to the experience.
The staff take it to a higher level. Owners Bill and Casey are very relaxed and incredibly helpful - they are very hands on and will go out of their way to make your stay one to remember. Bob, Luke, Eddy and Rapha add to this and together with the other members of staff form a friendly and light hearted team.
The food is great and provides a mix of local and US dishes - all very healthy though! If you want to get out and about there are other options in the area.
The surf was great during our stay - head high to overhead and offshore every day and there are plenty of options either to take it easy or push yourself. My wife is a beginner and there were plenty of options for her also. Bill & Luke both provided great advice for how the different spots worked as well as tips on technique etc. The US airlines dont appear to be helpful in terms of taking boards $$$ - dont worry Bill has a good selection of rentals so I would reccomend dropping him a line to see of he has something that might be similar to what you ride at home.
If surfing isnt your priority there are plenty of day trips to do, yoga, massages or simply relaxing in one of the hammocks!
I could go on and on but in essence I would highly recommend going the extra mile and staying at Soma!
