The atmosphere. The food. The staff. The establishment. Sea walks. All awesome. I recommend for all who want to take some time away from the busyness of the city. The environment is great for a time to recharge.

A great experience, the only things we were not happy about were: our Balcony door did not have a key and was not closing properly, the bathtub was not clean when we arrived. Lastly the massage that was part of the package was only 15min instead of 30min as stated in the package. Otherwise overall we had a great time

When you first arrive at Crawfords you know there is something special going on. From the friendly greeting at reception, perfect views of the ocean, scummy food and wonderful accommodation. Crawfords becomes like a drug, you have to keep coming back for more.

Crawford's was the perfect getaway for us, and offered exactly what we wanted - from comfortable accommodation, to delicious food, topped with phenomenal service from the staff, all right on the beach. Thank you for a truly relaxing getaway. We cannot wait to go back!
