We stayed at The Crane for one week in November 2012. We booked a Garden Deluxe 1-Bedroom via expedia and got a very good deal. Our suite was enormous with a very large living room with kitchen, a large bedroom, two bath rooms and a a nice patio with access to a private roof terrace with a little pool and BBQ. Everything was beautifully furnished and well equipped.
The location is really special and quite dramatic. The resort is situated on top of a cliff with spectacular pools and nicely landscaped grounds, while the beach can be accessed by an elevator or stairs. The beach has been justifiably described as one of the most beautiful beaches on earth, however the surf was always very strong which makes it difficult to swim.
In the middle of the resort is Crane Village with nice restaurants and some shops. The Italian restaurant is picturesque and quite good. We also attended the Sunday Gospel Breakfast at L'Azur, the breakfast buffet was quite substantial and the view over the ocean simply breathtaking.
We can highly recommend Cutter's Deli for lunch, it is just a short walk away.
Service in general was very attentive and nice, however sometimes a little bit slow.
My favourite part was to roll one of the deck chairs close to the cliffs and enjoy the view, the sunset and the early evening from here.
The Crane is a perfect place to relax, calm down and simply to enjoy life.
