“An oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2007

We were part of a 70th birthday party which had been booked for several months and we were quite worried when we read some previous reviews. Did these people stay in the same place as us? We had a superb time. Staff extremely helpful especially Jessie and her staff. The rooms spacious and spotlessly clean and the kitchen units very well equipped. The gardens are lovely and a nice touch is the naming of the plants. Everyone in the party - all 21 of us loved the place and for us Cranes was the jewel in our Florida stay. Cranes is a peaceful oasis a block from the beach. If you go, try Ciao's for breakfast. (a right on Atlantic and tucked in a little courtyard half a block down)

My husband and I stayed at Crane's with our bichon frisee at the end of last October. It was a wonderful experience that really helped me, as I had a car accident that day, and was very distraught. We live in Lake Worth, and had been given this as a gift, and it could not have occurred at a better time. The room was very beachy and comfortable, and our dog who is somewhat neurotic responded favorably to the environment. We took her everywhere we went, and the front desk told us where to go to eat, which was very helpful. I adored the Key West feeling of the hotel and the convenience to everywhere and everything in Delray. The manager Lori was very attentive even though the hotel was busy. The staff also had a way of being unobtrusive, which was also refreshing. The room was clean, with nice little touches, and it was very relaxing to sit by the pool and even outside our room. I would definitely recommend Crane's as a low-key, relaxing hotel with lovely amenities, and a very welcoming staff.

We had to vacate our home for a couple days and chose Cranes for the location and dog availability. Steps to the beach and trendy shops of our favorite town. We never could have imagined what a wonderful stay it would be. The tropical setting was quiet comfortably relaxing. The staff was beyond gracious offering assistance at every turn. People and dog cookies were available to the two and four legged guests. This enclave in the heart of the action was about as perfect a get away as one could want.

I live in Hallandale Beach, Florida about 30 miles from Crane's, but when I tell you this property takes you away from the everyday rush, you feel like you are so far away from home without having to travel at all. The staff is always there to help with any details, and the rooms are better than home. The pools are so relaxing, I enjoyed our visit so much and have booked two times since and the experience is always the best, the service, the property even after the hurricanes are so pretty, like your private oasis, every time I have booked it has been with the same person, Lori, it is nice to see that the property keeps their staff for so long and they remain a pleasure to do business with.

We stayed at the property in February. We found it to be a wonderful place! Having read some recent reviews about the management, we expected the worst. All I can say is that we were greeted warmly, given some cookies and a tour of the property by the muralist, who then took us to the room. The staff offered suggestions for restaurants and shared a web site for tracking flights. Whenever I went to the office, I was treated very well. Our room was probably the smallest one there, but kept clean by one of the nicest staff I've met. We had a nice kitchenette in the room as well. Yes, we had the sheets that tended to ride off the corner, but, from what I've read, they have rectified the situation. We enjoyed the pools as well. One feature I really liked was that it was quiet and seemed like an "out of the way" place and yet it was only footsteps to Atlantic Ave and the beach.
We're glad we stayed there! If you want to stay in a large, inpersonal place, stay at one of the big hotels. If you want to be in a great location and enjoy an island feel, this is the place to be.

Bravo to our staff for doing such a Great Job! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I agree with you about staying at a large hotel vs a small intimate private beach property with only 27 luxury suites! Please feel free to say Hello the next time you are staying with us. I welcome you back and would like no more than to personally thank you for sharing your positive thoughts about our hotel and staff. Warmest Regards, Cathy Balestriere

Crane's, Thank you so much for the best vacation ever! The two pools and beautiful gardens were such a relaxing slice of paradise. We loved our suite, lovely murals painted on the walls, nice and clean and the staff was great. We discovered some great restaurants just down Atlantic Avenue and the beach is just a block away, so close! We will be back!

Best vacation I have ever had and I have traveled the world. Liz at the desk is fabulous. The staff, housekeeping were helpful and friendly. The suites were decorated to perfection in downtown Del Ray Beach.
