The amenities are many, with four restaurants, a spa and a bar with live entertainment. The fitness center is well equipped. The Crane resort is one of the most beautiful settings in the world.

You need to book in advance as it is VERY popular despite there being 2 sittings, 9am & the other at 10am. We chose the 9am. sitting as it is in the front of the L'Azure Restaurant with magnificent views of Crane Beach. There is a variety of cold and cooked food for breakfast including, fruit juices, cereals, fruit selection,...

This place is nothing short of amazing. The people are so friendly and helpful. The accommodations and grounds are immaculate. The water is rough to swim in but fun if you are very careful. Take the locals word when they say its too rough to swim. The pools have recently received a face-lift and are gorgeous. We have been here...

I've wanted to visit The Crane for years! We just came back from a vacation and it was more than I expected! Other reviews had lots of negative remarks regarding the hot water, a/c, and location. None of these things were problems! It's remote but that's why we went. The people are so friendly and the food great especially Zen!

This is a good hotel. It is not a Four Seasons or Fairmont, but they do a good job with clean rooms that are oversized for. Fair price. What makes this hotel great is the beach they have attached to it. Crane beach is a stunning beach. You could park yourself there and never leave. The restaurants have a good...

We loved The Crane! I almost didn't book due to some of the reviews here, which, now that I've stayed, seem completely off base. This is a place to truly come and relax with just enough service, but not too much where you feel bothered or smothered. Here are some tips. - the resort is a large low rise complex...
