This was our 2nd time staying at the Crane both times booking thru Alberto.
We stayed for nearly 2 weeks in 2015 and for 1 week in 2016.
As mentioned in other reviews, the pictures are spot on...actually the pictures cannot convey the peacefulness, natural beauty, and tranquility of this place.
There are many different room styles throughout this resort but Alberto's condo is located in the prefect spot. It has the most amazing view of Crane Beach and the winds that breeze thru the condo are simply unforgettable.
I would say that the reason we love the Crane so much is really because of Alberto. He is like having awesome big brother who is truly invested in making sure everything goes smoothly. He is a kind and genuine man that I must meet personally someday. I can't imagine booking any other way.
The only issue we had was with our last stay but it was in no way Alberto's fault. The week we stayed one of the pools was closed for maintenance. There were plenty of other pools to swim in but the problem was it was the pool that was located in one of the historic buildings where we really enjoyed relaxing. We went during the slow season so I can understand scheduled maintenance, it's just that I felt the Crane should have been upfront about their scheduled maintenance so that guests could plan their vacation accordingly.
If I could emphasis anything about this review, it would be.....trust Alberto.
Ask him questions....he is so very honest.
