Not Totally Pleased!!

Beautiful part of the island the landscape and beach are great. But during our 6 day stay it rained all day on the 3rd day, while we were out during the pouring rain our room sprung a leak in the bathroom behind some tiles causing a puddle throughout the room, it was so bad that the power went out twice. We used the towels to remove some of the water but I went to the front desk to ask for assistance and was told that someone would be coming to assist us but the towels are on the other side of the resorts which is flooded and after being there 4 more days no one has yet to come to check. I believe for the price that you pay for these facilities they should be more equipped to handle rain and power outages. I do understand you cannot control mother nature but the people that are staying at your resort should be your most highest priority. We had to go to the front desk to get info no phones, wifi and communication from the managers at this resort. And I have not been compensated for my inconvenience.

Great place to kick back and relax for a romantic get away. Leave the kids at home for this one. If your looking to just hang out by the beach and pool without the hustle and bustle of the typical resort this is the place. There are plenty of options to enjoy eating and drinking to keep you occupied from early morning to when you retire in the evening. The resort has everything you need right on the premise. If you are looking for the night life of the big city this is not the place for you. The resort and facilities are beautiful and the staff is exceptional.

Heaven on earth

My husband I stayed in a spacious one-bedroom suite for a week in June. From the courteous bellman and efficient seated check-in process to the housekeeping staff, Crane staff are top-notch. The variety of pools is fantastic but nothing beats having your own private plunge pool as we did! And forget about air-conditioning, there's endless fresh breeze. The range of equipment in the gym is impressive, and with the sumptuous choices at their restaurants you'll need it (we ate at all of them, even at the bar where there's great live music various nights of the week). There's room for improvement in two areas: the pillows which were uncomfortable for me as a petite woman (my husband is bigger and found a way to get comfortable), and The Village Cafe's desserts which have diminished in quality and at the time were being served in containers which would crush the contents if you close them. That being said, the cafe's ham sandwich/salad combo is delectable. And the Crane's amazing property and cliff-top ocean view more than make up for these minor shortcomings. We've stayed there four times so far and we'll definitely be back.

Very relaxing

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.
