I will be honest that I was a bit nervous when I booked a weeks vacate at the crane because some reviews on here said it was rundown... and I was not able to tell from the travelers photos if it was nice or not really...but let me tell you (and I'm picky) the resort is beautiful and very well-kept....

I've wanted to travel to barbados for over 2 decades. I finally made the trip and stayed at The Crane. It was breath taking! Everything about this resort was top notch! This is a resort you go to for R & R - as it is secluded. If you are comfortable driving on the left side of the road -... More

We originally booked 12 nights in the historic building (a deluxe 1-bedroom suite overlooking the ocean). Upon arrival we were told that the owner was extending his stay in the suite we had book, so we were being upgraded. We were not happy about this at first but after having a look at some of the historic suites from the... More

What a fabulous hotel & resort, warm welcoming staff excellent food & accommodation. I was fascinated by the change in colour of the sand (coral) when the sea waves wash over the beach - We will be back.....

This is the only hotel we stay at each and every time we visit Barbados. Having family in this country has allowed us the ability to see numerous places on the island, and the Crane is the one we go back to every year. It is close to the airport, and maybe 20 minutes from Bridgetown where there is plenty... More

After months of deliberation and research my girlfriend and I finally decided on The Crane Beach Resort in Barbados. We had gotten great reviews on this hotel and at the time of booking, it was discounted by 35%. We ha originally planned on staying in a One bedroom suite with ocean view, but me being the amazing boyfriend I am... More

I my Wife Daughter and Husband have just returned from another wonderful stay at the Crane Residential Resort Hotel. We go back every year and it seems that every time we go back more improvements have been made to the resort. This resort can be full with Guests staying yet it is so spread out that it never feels over... More

We have been going to The Crane for several years and it just keeps getting better. The location is, stupendous and our apartment (we stayed in building 5) was right on the cliff overlooking the ocean. The beach is never crowded and neither are the pools and other public areas as the whole place has been designed to be low... More

We stayed here for a week and enjoyed the many pools, beaches, restaurants, bars, views and the lovely rooms. We were told by fellow guests that there were monkeys hiding in the brush by the beach... I did not see them though. The only thing I wasn't fond of was that my room did not have laundry facilities and the... More
