Since 1887, The Crane Resort has overlooked the pink sands and turquoise waters of Crane Beach - one of the top 10 beaches in the world as rated by the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and most recently named the "Best Beach in the Caribbean" by USA Today's 10Best Readers Choice 2015. Set on Barbados' beautiful South East coast, the oldest operating hotel in the Caribbean has effortlessly married the old-world charm of its past, to all the 21st century amenities and services expected by today's most discerning travellers. Guests are spoilt for choice with ultra-spacious one and two-bedroom suites, and three bedroom penthouses, many featuring lush gardens, private pools and rooftop terraces. There are also several fantastic dining options, including Zen, the No.1 Zagat rated restaurant in Barbados, which features Thai and Japanese cuisine, L'Azure which offers Caribbean delicacies with an international flair, The Carriage House which offers poolside favourites, D'Onofrio's, the Italian restaurant and The Grove Bar and Grill on Crane Beach which offers light grilled fare. The centre-piece of it all is The Crane Village - 55,000 sq. ft. of retail space complete with duty-free shopping, a Jazz bar, open-air dining, a fitness centre, day spa, an art gallery and the newly opened Calypso Kid's Club catering to younger guests.

Although our visit was last summer, I thought with the lack of current reviews due to coronavirus this was still very relevant. During our time at the Crane, we upgraded ourselves to a two bedroom contemporary suite which was definitely worth the amount extra per night. Due to the fact that it is located in the new private residence block, it featured all new appliances, was very large and beautifully furnished. I would recommend researching the cost of upgrading before arriving because it ended up being much less than we expected. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Crane and thought all of the food was excellent and L'Azure in particular had a wonderful view which made breakfast even better. All of the amenities at the hotel were of a high standard - the pools in particular were excellent and we spent the majority of our time at the adults only pool as it was quieter. The seaweed was not an issue at the beach as they worked hard to clear it. All of the staff were very friendly - Vivienne on reception and Yvette at breakfast both stood out in particular for being so helpful. Overall we thought it was an excellent hotel with stunning views and we would definitely consider returning. The only thing I can think of which could improve the hotel would be upgrading the chairs around the pool.

Just heavenly. Beach is a wonder. Resort is so special - my only complaint - I wish we had more food options. And the little store left a lot to be desired but other than that - - what can I say. Sad leaving. Unit was superb. Pools also but we fell in love with the beach. We would go back in a heartbeat.

I've stayed at The Crane many times and absolutely love this hotel as it has some really amazing views so it was a no brainer for me to have my wedding there. I have never had a bad experience there until i had to deal with their event planning team!! The wedding experience is EXTREMELY poor! The first initial meeting with the planner went really well but every experience after that was a disaster. The wedding planner never answers her phone, she takes extremely long to respond to emails and when i reported it to a manger i was told they are understaffed in that area and this is the usual experience but on the day of my wedding i'll get better service (I KID YOU NOT!!) . We ended up spending the extra to hire our own wedding planner who also complained about how poor it was getting any information from the hotel's event planning team. I would suggest to anyone having their wedding there sadly you should hire your own event planner, do not use the team provided by the hotel. Weddings are frustrating already, you dont need that extra stress! Definitely would not suggest anyone use this hotel for a wedding!

My husband and I were here 3/6/20 to 3/11/20. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, everyone was professional, courteous and friendly. A manager shows you to your unit to make sure everything is perfect in your unit. We were welcomed with a fruit, cheese and cracker plate.Also the bed had a gorgeous pattern of fresh flowers on it. I had arrived in paradise! I had a one bedroom ocean front unit in building 9. It was absolutely beautiful with so much character and huge with 2 bathrooms. We booked through HGVC. Housekeeping comes in everyday! There is an elevator to take you down to the beautiful beach. Chairs and umbrella at the beach are included. No problem getting them. There are multiple pools and restaurants. The 1887 bar has musicians every night. I can’t say enough positive things about this resort. A shout out to manager Dionne Franklyn! Also, to server Shaliqua at D’onofrio’s Restaurant.
