I do not wish to give this establishment any more thought but suffice to warn fellow travellers. I read the reviews on this establishment, mixed to say the least unfortunately I chose to side with the positive, big mistake ! Mixed party of us, everyone agreed complete and utter rubbish establishment, read and assimilate the bad reviews not the glowing... More

This was our first stay at the Crane and the staff is friendly and cordial. The resort is beautiful, the rooms are nicely appointed, the pools are inviting, and the beach is truly amazing. However, there was no air conditioning in our room and we spoke to two other couples in different buildings who stated the same problem. We complained... More

I recently stayed at the Crane. The resort is beautiful and the staff is great. However, they lead you to believe the beach is part of the resort, but it's a public beach. We were approached by a drug dealer, turned him away and he threatened us with a knife. The hotel security questioned us and got the police involved.... More

The Crane rocks! I don't even know what else to say. We had a 2 bedroom pool suite in building 5, with an unobstructed view of the Caribbean Sea. It was breathtaking, probably the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. The Asian fusion restaurant on site is to die for, again with an incredible view. The pool setup is... More

Let me start by saying that the grounds of the resort are STUNNING. There are constantly people at work gardening/watering the landscaping...however, we did see quite a bit of trash laying around down by the beach. Our room was spacious, though a bit spartan where decor was concerned; no big deal, we were there for the beach views anyway. Our... More

I've read a lot of the comments from Trip Advisor about the resort and many of them have a lot of negative to say especially regarding the customer service and I think this takes away from capturing how beautiful the resort truly is. The views are spectacular. The cliff side views from the property, the views from the beach, the... More

The ony complaint I have is that as a member of The Crane for 7 years, the lack of communication regarding expectations is almost non existent. We had a list of 15 items that needed correction. Although the location is the most beautiful of any where I have been, our one week stay should have been more relaxing and enjoyable.... More

We purchased a timeshare at the Crane several years ago. We were taken back by the beauty of this resort and the non commercial feel. The beach, the rooms, the grounds and the view of the Atlantic Ocean are spectacular. Over the past few years the resort seems to lack in a lot of areas particularly in customer service. Resort...

I wanted a restful holiday somewhere beautiful - and that was what I got. I had an amazing week at The Crane. The staff are brilliant, from the front desk down to the guys on the beach. They will give you as much attention as you require, but know when to leave you alone. There were plenty of facilities, but... More

It's a beautiful resort with great restaurants. Couple of downers; Zen the zagat awarded restaurant was delicious but only had half the food on the menu! The Japenese meal was over $200 US for two persons. The servers didn't seem to have good knowledge about the food and when asked questions they looked confused. The air conditoner in building 5...
