3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spent a week here at the begining of June. We had a nice room that was more like an apartment as it had a full sized kitchen in it. It did have a lovely view over the fish pound but was a bit close to some works which made it quite noisy during the day. We did find that... More

The Crane Resort is just what we were looking for in a very quiet vacation. Emphasis on quiet, since this is at the South end of Barbados. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The room was fantastic overlooking the ocean. The only negative is nothing the resort can do about is unfortunately also all over the island of Barbados... More

Barbados is a beautiful island. The Crane is a gorgeous property. We stayed in a newer 1 bedroom suite. The bathroom and shower is awesome. Nice bedding. Well equipped kitchen. We were there during the terrible seaweed so the beach was a huge disappointment. There is no hot tub which was surprising. The pools are lovely, but cold!! Many restaurants... More

We stayed here a little over a week and loved every minute of it!! We had a room in Cliff Cot ocean view 4th floor--it was amazing!!! We left the doors open so we could always hear and see the ocean waves. Absolutely breathtaking!! The housekeeping did a great job too and the employees work hard. Our favorite restaurant was...

The Crane is one of those resorts everyone should experience at least once. Just voted Number One beach, the rooms, dining and courteous service all add to the experience. Another bonus is the resort is approximately 15 minutes from the airport. There are 2 pools, adult version and family, which is truly ideal for those little toddlers that love the... More

The Crane is located on the beautiful east coast of Barbados, on a large cliff. The hotel has wonderful facilities and rooms/suites. It has beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean. This is our fifth visit to The Crane. The property has numerous pools, including an adults only pool. It also contains three fine dinning restaurants, each of which has an... More

Returned yesterday from the Crane after a week’s stay. Barbados was by far the worst Caribbean island I have visited (have nearly done them all). Firstly, the Crane Hotel has a very fitting name. One will wake up at 6:00AM to a beach entirely FULL of seaweed and cranes are on the beach cleaning it up. It was literally a... More

CraneBarbados, General Manager at The Crane Residential Resort, responded to this review

Dear S N, It is unfortunate that your Crane stay did not meet your expectations. Please be assured that your experience is far removed from our guests’ typical Crane experiences. Barbados also boasts a repeat visitation rate in excess of 40% - one of the highest in the Caribbean. It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy our island as... More

Just returned to the UK after 2 amazing weeks at the Crane for my friends wedding. The place was amazing. Spacious room,plenty of pools,excellent food and cocktails. What made it was the excellent and friendly staff. I hope to go back soon.

I have just returned from my 6th holiday at the Crane (staying for a week) and it never disappoints, it simply surpasses its self upon each visit. From the moment we arrived we were taken care of, nothing was too much trouble for Mel`s team including Cheryl on reception, Marlon in the bar and Cory and Shane down at the... More
