An enormous disappointment. The seaweed contagion was huge and little effort made by the hotel to clear it up. Well there was a solitary figure with a rake and wheel barrow making a half hearted attempt!!! In Mauritius this would have been done every morning at 5 by a squadron of people and a tractor!! Guess that's why we moved... More

Another fabulous stay at the Crane. Seaweed still a problem but that's nature, and shuttle to Copacabana worth it as lovely beach there, and chance to walk into Bridgetown along the beach for free! Nice to see lovely staff again, Susan at the Carriage bar and Errol in L'azure, also Watson hive of information, really made our trip.

Quiet, relaxed, all the services you need and none that bother you. Water is fine, best for swimming - sandy bottom few if any rocks. We stayed at the Crane so were there every day.

We went her with the family for a little get away and hotel had everything we needed. The room we had in building 5 was outstanding. We had a full kitchen which came in handy. The service was always there to help. As everyone else mentions there is a seaweed problem at the beach which make it unusable but the... More

This is a beautiful beach at a wonderful old, now renovated, hotel on the Atlantic side of Barbados.

The beach is in front of the crane hotel, we parked in the cranes parking lot(which we later found out wasn't usually allowed) but no one said anything to us, the beach is below the hotel. There is a hotel to take you to it but it was out of order so we climbed down the 66 steps to the... More

My husband and I were able to walk the length of this beach one morning and we had the entire beach to ourselves. The white sand was beautiful although marred by the presence of the sea weed (However, the seaweed is seasonal)

Being that the beach is on the Eastern side of the island, the caribbean beaches have suffered because of the Seagrass invasion, so please don't hold the Hotel at fault for this occurance. Crane tries their best daily to clean up the seagrass but no one can stop nature.
