We arrived around 3pm and our room was't ready. Apparently we needed a bedspread (which we never go). Although the room was sufficient for my husband and I it was a little tight. Take your mosquito repellent as you will need it in these rooms. We were bitten so badly it hurt. The bed was oh so hard and uncomfortable.... More

I just checked in today and there was a big roach crawling across the bathroom floor. I'm here by myself so I had to kill in. Then later on I enter into the kitchen and opened the drawer with the silverware and there was a roach crawling all on the silverware. I opened another drawer and there was another roach!... More

I choose The Crane to get married. For the cost of the rooms and food this resort needs to fix a lot of things. The hotel manager was called because the room a/c was not working. I called after checking in and was told I had to wait till morning. $500 for a hot a room with no working a/c.... More

The service was poor. Clean and the crane shouldn't be used in the sentence. Rats ran in the dining area where i was trying to eat my food of poor quality (lack of taste, colour, finesse). It was atrocious. First impressions last the staff wasn't genuinue or nice faked a smile here and there lacked people skills. Everything shut down... More

Time period: 10 May- 25 May As Crane timeshare owners my husband and I had a delightful time on this, our second two week stay in two years. The weather was beautiful and the well-kept grounds and the scenery around the Resort were as captivating as ever. We enjoyed swimming daily at the pools, and enjoyed delicious meals at D’Onofrio’s... More

Hotel-very clean. All rooms are a good location, if you are not lazy, as you can walk around easily here. Map seems larger than is. We had a garden suite, which is the lowest cost suite, and it was great! it was bigger than most of my apartments in Canada. Very much like a 900 ft condo. Full sized kitchen,... More

This is our second time staying at The Crane, and we have nothing but wonderful things to say. Our first visit was in October 2013. We exchanged with an RCI exchage company, The Registry Collection, into another resort on the Island and it did not meet our expectations. After one night we cancelled our reservations with The Registry Collection ("top... More

The Crane is a friendly, comfortable, old and gracious resort that is family friendly, laid back and genteel. So the bed is not the best, nor the air con, the prices, but you'll relax. Do well. Have fun. Romance.Do business. Chill out. Be warm, oh so warm....drink the Rum punch, and forget about the world for a few days...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched dramatically on the cliffs of Barbados' pristine south-east coast, The Crane Residential Resort, established since 1887, is the island's oldest operating hotel. Transformed into a world-class luxury resort, The Crane features ultra-spacious, fully appointed ocean-view one & two bedroom suites and three bedroom Penthouses, many with their own private plunge-pool. Facilities include the acclaimed Zen Restaurant serving classic Thai and Japanese cuisine and the consistently popular L'Azure Restaurant. The casual Carriage House Pool Side restaurant is another favourite along with D'Onofrio's Trattoria located in 'The Village' which offers duty free shopping, a General Store, Bar 1887 (with nightly live entertainment) and The Village Cafe. Last but not least is Crane Beach voted by Lifestyle's of The Rich and Famous as one of the Top Ten most beautiful beaches in the world, now with a fabulous Beach Grill! ... more   less
