The 2009 Zagat review describes the gospel breakfast as "Heaven on Earth" and praises the "simply breathtaking views of gorgeous Crane Beach."

The Carriage House

The Carriage House was once the official stable of the historic "Crane Beach Hotel" over 100 years ago. In keeping with the continued expansion and development it has been transformed into a modern day poolside bar and grill, serving up a variety of light grilled items and tropical cocktails in or out of the shade. The “ruins”, as the Carriage House is often referred to, still maintains remnants of its architectural past and rich history, in keeping with the overall style of the resort where modern amenities are melded with old world charm.
