My boyfriend and I traveled to Barbados for a week in August (their offseason because its "hot" then- it was about 82-85 degrees and somewhat humid). He got a great deal on the hotel through his work, so we didn't really shop around for a place to stay and after reading some of the reviews I was a little scared!... More

My husband and I stayed at the Crane August 6-10. We had a one bedroom suite on the fourth floor and the view was breathtaking..overlooking the pool complex and the ocean. The room was clean and well appointed. The AC didn't work very well in the sitting area but the bedroom was cool and comfortable, which was all that mattered... More

My husband and I recently spent a week at the Crane Resort & Suites - celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary. We stayed in a one bedroom suite with 28ft pool in block 5. Couldn't recommend this choice of room more. It was the most amazing of trips. We usually spent the morning in our suite/by the pool, and as... More

The Crane What can one say.....breath taken. My fourth time at the resort and once again it is hard to express how wonderful it is. This is the second time I stayed at the Hotel. The room I had was very quaint . I have stayed in the past in the resort residences. You cannot talk about The Crane and... More

Although we didn't stay here, we did visit. And by what we saw and experienced during our visit, let me just start out by saying that I am more than happy that we chose NOT to stay here! I feel really bad for the people that actually paid $$, and good $$ at that, to stay here. First off, we... More

Stayed at Crane for 7 days. Have stayed at numerous nice resorts, so not a first for our family. Resort grounds are generally nice, but there is more gloss than deep shine. Construction noise not a real problem. The staff is friendly, they just don't get how to provide a level of service expected at a resort of this caliber... More

I recently stayed at the Crane. We were there from July 8-17. I find it hard to believe we there at the same time as the group from NY. We had none of the problems discussed by that group. Check in: The Crane is a gated resort. When you arrive the guard at the gate phones the reception desk and... More

The Crane Hotel in Barbados was the number one pick after planning a much needed vacation with 18 of my friends for my 35th Birthday. As frequent vacationer we make certain to choose the best hotels to avoid problems typically found in low grade hotels. Unfortunately, The Crane Hotel, who is considered the best in Barbados, was the absolute worst.... More

We were shocked to read the review by the group from the Bronx, NY. It doesn't appear that they stayed at the same resort as we did!! Our vacation at the Crane was incredible. The staff was warm, friendly and very informative. The service, outstanding. Our room was absolutely beautiful! It was immaculate. The bed was so comfortable, the kitchen... More
