Nice people and location. Could not cool room down. Room was 85F this morning. Maintenance said it was a design problem and nothing they could do about it - here's an oscillating fan. Sorry - no return planned - room air conditioning made stay miserable.

We stayed here for a week in July on an RCI timeshare exchange. We had a two bedroom unit with a plunge pool in building 9 on the third floor. The unit was huge, with plenty of floor space and 2-3/4 baths. Yes, the air conditioning worked! It was sometimes a little warm in the living room area in the... More

Our room was nice and the AC worked great. I even had to turn it off at night because it was too cold. However, we had a newer room. Others in my group rented the penthouse and the AC didn't work so great, but it was bearable as long as they had the balcony doors open and let the breeze... More

As we walked into the lobby, we were instantly transported to a time when things were a little more gracious. We were greeted by a lovely staff that wisked rum punches to us when we checked in. The lobby was designed in true old plantation decor and the tradewinds and smell of nutmeg were in the air. We booked our... More

The Crane is considered one of Barbados luxury resorts. I can't say I agree with that statement. The hotel is old and undergoing a major makeover. Imagine looking out of window at Ground Zero, that's what it reminds me of when I look at it. I expected more being that it is so expensive and considered to be luxury. I... More

My husband and I traveled to Barbados in celebration of my 30th B-day. We stood at The Crane and LOVED IT!!!!!! My husband and I travel often and we always read trip advisor reviews so when we read the reviews for The Crane a lot of people were complaining about some sort of air conditioning problem so we were nervous...

I also was quite concerned about the Crane and emailed them with my worries - my husband and I are seasoned travelers and have stayed at some of the finest hotels,...including Rome Cavalieri, Noga Hilton in Canne and Four Seasons George V Paris....vacations are very important to us. We've also been to the Carribean many times and understand the diferrences.......the... More

I highly suggest the one bedroom room with 28ft. plunge pool. Not only having a private pool is the best amenity the room itself is perfect. The rustic decor, beautiful furniture and spacious size makes you feel like you are home not in a hotel.

We stayed at the Crane from 3 through 10 July and our experience was outstanding. The staff in particular deserve applause, most particularly Juliet in Guest Services. Juliet saw to our needs and went out of her way to make our party feel like family. Juliet clearly puts her heart and soul into her position at the Crane and treats... More

What a place to stay ! I had never experienced anything like it before, in fact we went back a couple of months later, and wow, just fantastic. Peaceful, maybe a little too peaceful sometimes, however, a short ride away is St Lawerence gap, loads to do, and on our second visit, we found a new little place had opened... More
