We booked and stayed here based on amazing reviews, pictures, ‘one of the best beaches ever’ etc. This was our 1 year anniversary trip and we are used to staying in luxury hotels/4 diamond resorts wherever we go so were very excited to get to Barbados. Getting through customs to our rental car was very easy and driving to the... More

Loved the rooms. This isn't a typical hotel room. It's more like staying at a villa. We stayed in the Garden View room and had an upstairs/outside including a small pool, grill, table, deck beds and fridge. However aside from the pool and room there were some cons. Sea is very choppy, you have to walk down est 60 steps... More

Overall, my second trip to The Crane was good. Had a wonderful view overlooking the cliff and the Atlantic; large unit with living room, bedroom, kitchen/dining areas, large bathroom with walk in shower and jacuzzi tub, and washer/dryer...everything one could ask for. Enjoyed dinner at both L'Azure and Zen, lunch at the Carriage House, and evening cocktails at 1887 Bar.... More

We spent a wonderful week in a 2 bedroom spacious condo with a beautiful balcony overlooking the pools and ocean where we enjoyed morning coffee and one small balcony overlooking the garden and current construction. Choose a room away from construction if you like to sleep in. Work begins about 8 am.The bedrooms had attractive king beds and spacious bathrooms.... More

We had two nights at the Crane after 10 nights on the West Coast and it was the perfect round off to our Barbados holiday. We had two junior suites for a family of four which gave us lots of room. We enjoyed eating at D'Onofrio's Restaurant (try the excellent pizzas) and had the Sunday Brunch with accompanying Gospel Choir... More

The view from our room was exceptional, breathtaking and just plain gorgeous. The pictures don't reveal the true beauty of this place. You must experience this for yourself to understand. The garden and pond as are built on "Zen" architecture (I think) and if you are seeking "inner peace " here is the place to be. The staff and Bajan... More

Dear JAEMMA T, We couldn’t agree with you more – photographs of The Crane certainly do not reveal its true beauty! The breathtaking vistas and constant cool breezes simply must be experienced in person. Corey was thrilled by your special mention! He exemplifies the typical Crane employee – genuinely friendly and welcoming. It was truly our pleasure to welcome your... More

We did a lot of research for the perfect honeymoon destination. We chose Barbados to be able to stay at the Crane Resort. It looks beautiful in the photos and it is. We most of all wanted the plunge pool in the turret. The room is also beautiful along with the ocean views. It was the other things that you... More

Dear Karen W, We were truly saddened to learn that your honeymoon with us failed to meet expectations. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience caused by the district-wide power outages and the resulting challenges with our AC and hot water systems. I was especially disappointed to read your report of poor communication surrounding these issues. While these events... More

One week of heaven. We stayed in the a deluxe penthouse in the Residences in the Park. The roof top pool and outdoor kitchen was awesome. We cooked out one night up and it was so fun. There is a little refrigerator up there to keep drinks cool. The pool was bigger than we expected. The unit was spacious and... More

The hotel grounds are neat and inviting, the rooms are beautiful (we stayed in the legacy section). The breakfast at L'Azure was very nice, and our server, Lisa, went out of her way for us by making sure we got our delicious flying fish which is no longer offered on the breakfast menu (Thank you Lisa).
