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.

On a tiny island such as Barbados amazing food can be found anywhere. However my visit to the Carriage House at the Crane Barbados was beyond just great food it was an amazing experience. The service was truly the highlight and nothing short of exemplary! Between supervisor Robin and our server Talisha, we could not have asked for better service. My mom who worked at luxury properties and restaurants were also delightfully surprised by her beer battered Mahi Mahi and the Guava Barbecue Chicken was rated the best ever. Add the best rum punch on island , breezy clean surroundings to all I described and there’s your 5 star experience without breaking the bank! Thanks Carriage House and we’ll done to Robyn and Talisha on your 1st class service.

Hotel's Favorite
The crane resort is, in a nutshell, fantastic! We were looked after right from the beginning through to the end of our stay, nothing was too much trouble and everyone was amazingly friendly. The grounds and pools are beautiful, the gardens are so green and pretty, the pools are great! Was so nice to have the choice of an adults only pool too. The beach was our first experience of a barbados beach when we arrived in the evening.....stunning!! It's on the Atlantic side so it's much more wild than some of the other beaches but in my view that makes it more fun playing in the bigger waves! 😁 The breakfast buffet was really nice, great selection and plenty of juice and teas/coffees . We had pizza one night at the 1887 bar which was nice and we also had dinner one night at the Italian, again it was a really nice meal. Our room was amazing! Huge! Kitchen, dining area, lounge, huge bedroom and bathroom, loads of storage and the view over the gardens and sea was the best we have ever had. What makes the crane the best though is the people, every single person was friendly, helpful and so genuinely interested in helping you out, it makes all the difference. Tip....to save getting a taxi everywhere, especially anywhere towards bridgetown, there is a bus stop right outside the hotel, go to the one that says in to city to go to bridgetown, on the way back go to a bus stop that says out of city and get on the bus heading towards Sam lords castle. Thank you so much for a fantastic stay, we hope to be back soon!! Vicki and Jon

My family and I planned for this stay at the beautiful Crane hotel. We booked an ocean view room to accommodate 4. Our room was gorgeous, just to be there felt unburdened.. We were celebrating my mom’s birthday. We were very excited for our stay. My niece booked her first night at one of the restaurants and took her granny to dinner 🙂 Our challenges started the first night after dinner with the Pull-out bed… we had a grand king size bed and a Pull-out couch. Needless to say we had challenges for several days re the pull-out bed. Eventually they give us two single beds and they were quite comfortable but they ruined the beauty and ambiance of the living room experience as they were permanently down for the duration of our stay. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful, magnificent even. We enjoyed the grounds as a family. To Crane Management When booking this mini vacation. I told the booking agent from the hotel that we were celebrating my mom’s birthday. On arrival I told front desk that we celebrating my mom birthday ! I was looking forward to a card or small greeting or token from the hotel itself wishing my mom ‘Happy Birthday’ so she can have her lil card etc to show her church friends. None came. Thank you for that!!!

Large room, very friendly staff. All area are clean and well maintained. Food and bar service are good. Nightly live entertainment at the town square bar. Causal atmosphere. One negative is the seaweed on the beach, but the hotel has no control over that, Daily shuttle to a south coast beach facility is offered free of charge. Highly recommend a stay.

We spent a week at the Crane the last week of August. The rooms are spectacular and well appointed. Next time we plan on getting one of the rooms with it's own pool. We tried all the restaurants and the food was consistently excellent but the staff were the best part. Everyone was helpful and friendly with great advice on things and ready to facilitate whatever plan you had. I would highly recommend it for a quiet restful vacation. It's further away from lots of the all inclusives but the cab drivers are super helpful. We were able to work with the same driver all week (Norman was wonderful) and he was reliable and helpful and lots of great recommendations. It was an anniversary celebration we will never forget.

My best friend booked a suite at the crane hotel for his birthday weekend. And I must say we received excellent service from the time we arrived to the time we checked out. Shakira (Reservations) Michelle (House-Keeping) and Natasha were all so excellent in each of their roles. I would definitely recommend The Crane Resort for any kind of celebrations, and the room with the plunge pool! 😊

The resort was very nice but be sure to find a grocery store to buy staples. Prices are on property are high. Food in the restaurants is very good, but again, expensive. The Crane is on the far side of the island and you need to take a taxi to tours and grocery stores. The large, main pool is beautiful so look for a room near there!

4 day/3 night Staycation in August 2022. First of all, I went to the Crane because I've heard nothing but good things about it. I have had quite a few staycations in barbados and this was not it. This was not what I expected of the Crane. That suite (#842) should not be rented out. The suite needs an upgrade or renovation. Sofas were full of stains, TV in bedroom flickering, A/C in bedroom not working (I reported it to front desk). Drawer in the room had a partial bottomCould not see out windows in living room.. So dirty. Patio doors stiff & making loud noises every time they were opened. Loungers in patio, cushions needs replacing, faucet in kitchen is disgusting also the Kettle, kitchen sink loaded with stains & chipped. Bathroom fittings needs changing,/upgrading. Too much limescale & soap residue. Stains on the bathroom wall. Room was not cleaned properly either. The list goes on. I went for rest & relaxation and got it. View from the room was great, room service and breakfast was good and also the bellhop guy. Sad to say I'd never go back to the Crane unless I was booking the newer suites. I love the grounds & location but the older suites in the hotel needs upgrading. They are old and moldy. I don't get how they're so pricey and so outdated. The antique decor is fine but good grief, do a renovation. I was sad i upgraded my room and still ended up with such a crappy room. Btw this wasn't luxury. I'd like back my money right now.
