Memorable Tripadvisor Reviews – September 2019


The Crane is nothing without its truly amazing guests. We have put together a short compilation of a few of our favourite reviews of September 2019. It was truly difficult to choose!


A Special Place!

We’ve been coming to the Crane for the past 15 years, first as a young couple on our honeymoon and now with our children. It’s a unique place. We love the endless horizon that greets you when you step out onto the dramatic cliff. The fresh breeze coming from the ocean. We commend the blend of the historic hotel and cliff side restaurant with the modern property and amenities. We feel welcome by the friendly and genuine team and enjoy the attention to detail of the lush landscaping and accent lights at night. We like to grab a cappuccino with a double shot of espresso on our way to the beach and watch the kids play for hours in the surf, interrupted only by a cone of locally made ice cream from the cafe or a barbecue chicken sandwich from the little beach bar that’s tucked away behind the palm trees. We appreciate that we can leave our phones behind because the WiFi is excellent even at the beach, so truly urgent messages can reach us on our watches. Most of all, you can see and hear the ocean wherever you go, which contributes to the special quality of the Crane for all those taking a short time out.


Beautiful Complex in a Stunning Location

We are at present staying at the Crane. It is a stylish exclusive development in a beautiful location. The units are very well set out with a beautiful lounge area, dining area and kitchen. There is a shower room with a wash basin and toilet. Leading from the bedroom is a vast bathroom with a bath, toilet, another shower and two wash hand basins. The complex is stunning with a beautiful pool area. Access to the beach is via a glass lift. The beach is a beautiful stretch of white sand there are a vast number of chairs and umbrellas. Also on site is a bar, the virgin mojito is the best I have ever tasted. There is a shop selling essentials, a coffee shop with delicious cakes and numerous superb restaurants. This is a fabulous place and if you are looking for a luxury lifestyle you won’t be disappointed.


Just Like Paradise

My husband and I just returned from celebrating our anniversary and birthdays at the Crane Resort. Our suite overlooking the ocean was spectacular. From check-in with drinks and eucalyptus chilled towels to the lovely flower bouquet and delicious and elegant birthday cake (and wine) awaiting us in our room, the staff went out of their way to make us feel so welcomed and special. Everyone was friendly, from the staff to the other guests. The resort features a Main Street kind of Village where you could browse through the shops, go to the gym or spa, choose from a variety of restaurants and shops, pick up any items you might have forgotten to pack, shop for food, or go by the Cafe for sweet desserts or homemade ice cream. YUM! We found the food delicious and reasonably priced. The beach was raked daily and the water was clean. We tried every pool and found them all very warm and immaculately clean. Our housekeeping staff, especially the lovely Julia, treated us like royalty. The landscaping was impeccable. Overall, the Crane Resort was totally enjoyable. We cannot wait to return!
