Just returned from The Crane where we stayed for 8 nights. Would highly recommend this hotel as location, service and food are all excellent. Wonderful views over the ocean from L'Azure Restaurant each morning with lovely breezes wafting through. We stayed in Building 5 to start with and had a garden view and an ocean view being on the corner,...

Stayed in a one bedroom suite with pool/ocean view. Check was smooth and simple. The room was huge and had everything you could want or need. Had no issues with any appliances or the room at all. The A/C is not super cold nor do you need it to be. We slept with the window open and it was fine....

As owners since Jan 2001, we were on site for 6 weeks in Jan-Feb ‘13. We enjoyed our time immensely this year in an upper floor of bldg. 9. Trick to avoid mosquitoes is to be located as high as possible. What a difference that made, with the fabulous sea breezes. Most of the time we didn’t even need to...

The Crane is an excellent resort with wonderful staff, breath taking views of the south of the island, pleasant trails for early morning walks in lush tropical gardens.
