The Crane resort is an interesting place. Many things are great, and a few not too much. Positive: - incredible view and access to a beautiful beach - very LARGE rooms which are more like suite (bedroom, sitting room, kitchen area, terrace) and huge bathrooms - very friendly, helpful and smiling staff at the reception - location: 10 minutes from the airport - taxis are available all the time on the property Negative: - the quality of the restaurants and food is very poor and very expensive.

Great vacation spot to rest and relax. Staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. We go twice a year and always look forward to returning. Beach is spectacular and the various pools are rarely crowded which we love.

Stayed at the Crane for 8 days. November 5-12th. Had an excellent experience. Every single one of the staff members are amazing people with even better personalities. Super friendly and accommodating. The rooms we stayed in were not only luxurious and beautiful but super clean! Having your own private pool, backyards, and patio is just icing on the cake. The sights from the beach and pools are breath taking. Very nice beach and pools. Restaurants were tasty, and the drinks were great too! Highly... Read more

Pros: Location, although at the quieter side of the island the Crane Beach is amazing. Resort has a traditional old charm Caribbean vibe than a larger modern resort. Rooms and suites are very spacious and well stocked for all your needs. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Zen, D'Onofrio's and Carriage house restaurants had good menu's and delivered decent quality. Village area provided café (good coffee), general store, bar, shops and restaurants. Cons: Resort is currently under const... Read more

I booked one of the nice oceanview 3bed penthouse with rooftop. The view was fantastic. Each bedroom has the ocean view. The penthouse comes with a plunge pool but I believe almost every 3bed comes with it not just the penthouse. The amenities are so so at this resort. It has it's own private beach and spa facility and couple nice restaurants on site. Everything is great except at the morning when we checked out, there was no water to use at all. We called and they said will send someone to... Read more

What more could you want, if you're looking for a party place this is not it- however if you are looking for relaxation, pools, beach and sun (The Crane has you covered). My husband and I stayed for 1 week in a 1 bedroom ocean view suite. One word luxury - the room was spacious and had a full kitchen. Restaurants - we tried all the restaurants on the resort, Zen was by far our favourite. All were good, but be prepared as a bit pricey. Off resort, check out Marco Polos it's approx 200 metre wal...

we stayed at the Crane and had a wonderful week. The accommodation's a A+ luxury. We stayed with friends there. Had to get our own groceries and cooked in but they have a few restaurants close by if you decide to eat out. Several pools to choose from and each unit has their own plunge pool. The Crane does provide a shuttle once a week to guest to go in to get groceries. There were 6 of us so we rented a small van for the week. Remember you have to know how to drive on left hand side if you do th... Read more

2 bedroom suite ocean view with plunge pool Huge bedrooms with four poster beds, dining room for 6, sitting area, 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchenettes, 3 balconies and plunge pool, although we were hardly in the rooms as the beach is so stunning...white sand and a constant gentle breeze to keep you cool. Kids loved surfing in the waves and playing in the many swimming pools. New beach/pool towels whenever you need one and plenty of restaurants to choose from. Our favourite was Zen, the japanese restaura... Read more

Wow what a nice hotel, I had the 1 bedroom oceanview and I was on the ground floor but had a 28 foot plunge pool! Was there for work and it was amazing. I loved everything about this place. The staff were so sweet/kind/helpful. Not far from the airport, you can easily get to some markets and they do have some little stores on site too with a lot in them to easily get what you need. You can do non and all inclusive here. Would stay again in a heart beat. Keep in mind not a party place, pre... Read more
