We have just arrived home from the Crane resort. We had a fantastic time. The service was excellent! I have never experienced such politeness in my life. Absolutely everyone greets you when they pass you and it's sincere. They can't do enough for you. The food in all the restaurants is amazing. I have food allergies and they were very accommodating and ensured I had great meals. What I like about the Crane, also, is, it is very contained. In the center of the resort there are some little stores set up like a small town. It's very nice! They have a General store where you can buy groceries, an ice cream parlour, a jewellery store and a small tourist type store. There are also other services.
If I had to complain about anything, our room had very tiny ants in the kitchen area. The Management and housekeeping went out of their way to address this problem to our satisfaction. We did check with other guests and it seems the problem is not throughout the resort but was just in our building. This small issue is why I did not give it 5 out of 5.
Do not let this deter you from enjoying the Crane. You will have a great relaxing holiday at this resort where the staff have only one goal and that is you having a great holiday.
