Very Good8.0
Very nice setting but limited food choice
Limited restaurant choice on site and some of the service slow and half the food not served as ordered

The Crane Resort
Fabulous resort
The resort is fabulous.The staff was very attentive and trying to accommodate every request.We had a period one bedroom apartement overlooking the ocean. Stunning views. You defiantly need a car to see the island . Taxis are every expensive and it is not worth it. Enjoyed it very much.

Fabulous resort
The Crane resort is fabulous.We’ve got a massive one bedroom apartment overlooking the ocean.All the staff were very friendly and trying to help.Highly recommended.
Irena, gb3 night romance trip
The Crane Resort
massively disappointing
Although we appreciate we arrived early around midday, they didn't seem too keen to try and check us in early before 4pm which is already a late check in compared to the rest of the island. We had to wait around for an hour and a half before we could finally go to the room. There was no aircon in reception and it was extremely warms so it was an uncomfortable wait for the room and we did get rather frustrated. Its a big resort too and navigating around took a while and wasn't obvious how to find the larger pool area advertised in the photos. Whilst the beach area is fantastic, and the part about the resort we linked the most, the pool area was very dirty, in fact its the dirtiest pool ive ever seen in my life and i have stayed in ALOT of hotels over the years. Needless to say we didn't use it and this was the part of the stay i was most looking forward to. We did find a slightly cleaner pool at the top by the bar and there was an outdoor Jacuzzi which was still dirty, but less so that the main pools and we did use it. We ate in the bar area and the food was not very good. We had a crab wrap which was literally tasteless but fairly expensive. In the evening we went to the asian restaurant overlooking the beach. The good was better here and nice view over the beach, but there was literally 1 prawn in the Tom Yum soup. Service was good though in this restaurant. The best part of this hotel was the beach area and its accessible without staying in the hotel. Nice grounds too

It was just an overnight stay but the staff were very helpful and friendly.we were very pleased with a late check out which corresponded with our was an amazing one night of luxury and relaxation.
