1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness
The view was absolutely breathtaking, but after 6 days of quarantine, couched as five, I needed more than a view. I wanted to experience the grounds. However, those who were not vaccinated were only allowed to leave their room on the sixth day of quarantine to have their test taken at the onsite clinic. (Don't be fooled by the 5 day quarantine. I arrived Sunday afternoon and was in lockdown until Friday around 8:30pm when my results returned.) If I was able to leave my room to have my COVID exam, why couldn't I frequent dinner spots? They could have provided a secluded area for folks to dine-in & enjoy their stay. Outside of cable, there was no entertainment provided for guests quarantining. Booking a suite with a plunge pool is not the answer to quarantine. It may soften the blow, slightly. BUT when amenities, like the jacuzzi's piercing shrills setting off the fire alarm, me falling through a broken lounge chair, or the patio lights flickering/totally inoperable doesn't help! After making a formal complaint to management, & being compensated $250 BBD towards my food tab, it wasn't enough to negate the humiliation of sporting a scarlet red wristband and being treated like an AIDS victim from the 1980's/90's. I said it. Those delivering food to the room left the food on a standing tray up against your room door and stood sometimes more than 7 FT away as if I truly had a disease. Does The Crane treat their staff differently for not being inoculated? Food was DIVINE, btw...

It’s perhaps not best to travel here during the pandemic because staff is limited and the NEWLY implemented 5-day quarantine (after my booking) made it difficult to enjoy the facilities or much less the island. I only had 5 days and I was allowed to test on day 3 to be able to leave the country (many hiccups). The results came during the late morning on day 4 so I only had a chance to walk around the complex and grab dinner at the D’Onofrios (delicious garbanzo soup). Again I see many potential post pandemic and the staff was always courteous - aiming to please.

we planned to stay at this hotel while we had to do the mandatory COVID quarantine, and although the test results have taken longer than usual, the Hotel and staff have been great at accomodating us while we wait for results.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I can honestly say this is one of the worst places I've ever stayed in, and I've stayed in *a lot* of hotels. I was scheduled to stay here 28 nights and ended up checking out early on the 14th night. Firstly, the rooms are disgustingly dirty. They're old rooms but that's no excuse for thick layers of dust on top of every surface. The food was awful. Don't order room service unless you like overcooked burgers, stale buns and undercooked fries. Staff were incredibly rude and unhelpful. The water to my room was turned off one morning and when I phoned for an update I was told, "I don't know what to tell you". Completely unacceptable. Please do not make the same mistake I did in staying here!
