What started out as a surprise anniversary getaway soon turned into a tropical delight from the moment we walked through the pretty gate and under the "No Worries" sign. Our only worries while we were there were "Where to eat?" (Not that we had few choices...we couldn't decide which one out of the many on the lovely Atlantic Avenue) or "Should I walk a block to the beach or stay by the pool?"
We honestly came to Crane's to visit a dear friend but just fell in love with the hotel. If you are into the big chains with 24 hour service and the same decor you could get at any hotel, go elsewhere. But if you want an escape from that with guaranteed tropical views, and the peaceful sounds of the pool's waterfall or breezes through the fabulous palms and flowers the second you walk out of your room, this is your place.
Our suite was spotlessly clean with the most comfortable beds and pillows and decorated like the tropics with the lovely local artwork on the walls and transposed on the pillows and throw. The extra touches were homey and personal (great desserts in the freezer for a nominal charge) and while we knew there was staff there, they kept to themselves with polite "hello's' leaving you feeling like you had a private paradise. After nice dinners out, we enjoyed peaceful evenings siiting by the pool and waterfall treating our selves to a frozen treat mentioned above.
We did not need a car as we enjoyed our walks to the beach, shops and restaurants and felt so safe. My husband is a police officer who is always on edge but it was nice to see him so relaxed. Stop at Nonni's for a homemade gelati after the beach and be sure to grab a great slice of pizza at Pizza Rustica. For dinner, we enjoyed ourselves at Cafe Luna Rosa with the great ocean breeze across the street, entertainment (a piano man with treats of the maitre d' singing) and fabulous gnocchis.
Thank you to Cathy and her staff for making us seem like we were the only ones there and making sure we truly had no worries.
