This is very good hotel. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The live music around the bar on some evenings really makes it very special especially around Christmas time. I do like the Azure restaurant though I think they need to step-up their dinner menu more often (maybe every 3 months), as there is not really that much variety... More

As everyone else says, the resort is really well located on one of the best beaches in Barbados. And yes, if you don't want to leave a resort then it has pretty much everything you would need. But we found that part of the problem - you can't really walk anywhere. It's great if you want to eat their food... More

The location is perfect! The resort is clean and tidy. The pools are beautiful. The food was amazing. I would love to spend more time here that's for sure! We stopped off for lunch on the fairwell to barbados tour with p&o cruises

If you want a real treat, stay at the Crane Beach Resort in Barbados. The accommodations are top quality and the food is superb. The Hotel is located on one of the best beaches in Barbados and the blend of the old and the new is seamless.

The attraction of the crane is that it's 15 mins (max) from the airport, has four eateries, a bar, fantastic pools, beautiful beach, a grocery store, babysitting and fabulous rooms. I am staying in a two bedroom with garden and pool and it must be around 200 square feet. Beautiful inside and a well equipped kitchen. All rooms have private... More
