We get some respite from the swell behind reefs on the north coast, although the wind comes in harder, cross Dutchman's Bay, past the International Airport with a large US dish antenna which is ostensibly used for tracking satellites. It is more exposed here, but later we slip in behind Long Island, reputedly some of the most expensive real estate in the Caribbean. Oprah Winfrey, among other ...

I have also invested in 100 minutes of internet time so that I can keep in touch with my readers! I am so proud to have found the Internet Cafe all by myself. I haven’t tried to connect yet as I thought I’d finish this first. We had a muster station practice before setting sail, everybody had a ...

I spent the rest of the morning until 12:15pm riding around and taking pictures. Then went to lunch at Blue Heaven. I arrived about 12:15pm and they were just taking names for the lunch service while they finished up breakfast. I had to wait about 30 min before they were ready to start lunch. Once the breakfast crowd was gone though it was not too busy. It didn’t seem like there was really any wait for lunch once they started service. They had several ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crane's BeachHouse Hotel & Tiki Bar Delray Beach
Just returned from a 5 night stay at Cranes and it is everything it promises. We felt like we were in our own little tropical paradise. The rooms were beautiful and spotless, the staff was wonderful (especially housekeeping) and within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. They made our 20 month old daughter the center of attention all the time and she loved it!! It is great to find a little slice of heaven that is actually family friendly. We can't wait to return.
My husband and I stayed at Cranes for a weekend getaway for our 1 year anniversary. From the moment we stepped inside the gate we were mesmerized by the lush greenery, sparkling pools ands quiet intimate atmosphere. The room was spotless, and the gourment cookies and brownies at the front guest were a nice touch. It's super close to the beach, which was a great convenience. We highly recommend Crane's Beach house, it won't disappoint!
Spent a long weekend during my daughters wedding. Couldn't have been more impressed with the hotel or its staff. Have recommended friends, would love to return.
Doesn't get any better...
Relaxing, close to all the action and beach. Magnificent grounds, luxury suites.
My husband & I just spent 3 days at Craine's. It was a beautiful, secluded tropical hideway!
We had a standard, inexpensive room. It was beautiful & clean!
We were very pleased & will return!
I never stayed at Cranes, but after my disapointing experience in trying to make reservations, I won't. I called to make reservations and was quoted $205 per night. I indicated that their website indicated that the cost of the same room for the same time period was $175. Lori, the person I spoke with told me to book on their website to get that rate. The booking service on their website, however, indicated a third rate of $185. I asked to speak to a manager when Lori provided no assistance in clariyfing the discrepency. She told me to wait while I overheard somebody say "give her my cell phone number." I was then told that the manager was not available but to call Julianne on the cell phone. I left a message on the cell phone number I was given but, of course, nobody returned my call. Utlimately, I decided to make reservations at Wrights by the Sea where they were incredibly gracious and gladly accepted my reservation.
You will NOT regret one minute
Just spent 4 lovely days here. With no prior knowledge of the town or Crane's. It's all an A+. Crane's is spotless, maintained like few places. The staff is friendly and as helpful as can be. The rooms are furnished with all one could think of and want for this sort of resort.
Bottom line YOU WILL ENJOY CRANE"S and Delray.
Beautiful rooms and setting
You will love your room at Crane's, which is well worth what we paid and then some. Rooms are beautiful and very clean, although housekeeping only comes once every three days in the summer.
The grounds are small but gorgeous with two pools, tiki bars, grills, and tons of little nooks where you could go to have a drink or read.
No room service, but there are plenty of great restaurants in a 2-3 block walk, the beach is a block away.
We will return.
Gorgeous grounds including lush plantings, two heated pools, tiki huts, and hammocks. The rooms are immaculate and lovely with murals, and complete kitchens. The beds are out of this world. Private yet close to Atlantic Ave. and beach. Not a bad word to say about this hidden paradise.
