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. Guests also enjoy complimentary WiFi in all guest rooms and around the resort - even on Crane Beach - and complimentary long-distance calls to most international destinations.

I've had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Crane Resort This was my second time visiting the Crane Resorts for a weekend staycation and I must say I’m in love with this resort. Each time I have stayed has been a first class experience from start to finish. The service is exceptional, the staff are extremely friendly and are very helpful. The rooms are clean and very luxurious and having a private pool was a very nice addition. The food was of the highest quality and was delicious. I cannot say enough about the quality of the Crane Resort and how happy I am every time I stay. Im looking forward to my next visit in October!

This is not an easy one . This was our third visit to the Crane . The rooms are great and all the facilities are very good , notably the beach and the pools . The Zen restaurant is outstanding although the Italian restaurant ( D'Onfiros ? ) needs to improve its service . The staff are outstanding . The reason why this is not easy is that with the humidity , the stone/marble floors in the rooms became very slippery , my wife slipped and broke her arm . The staff response was excellent and the doctors, x ray team and the specialist in Bridgetown were all very helpful . However , not the best holiday for obvious reasons and I think the Crane needs to alert everybody to the risks of the slippery floors . I would certainly recommend the Crane and their response to helping us was commendable .

We are at present staying at the Crane. It is a stylish exclusive development in a beautiful location. The units are very well set out with a beautiful lounge area, dining area and kitchen. There is a shower room with a wash basin and toilet. Leading from the bedroom is a vast bathroom with a bath, toilet , another shower and two wash hand basins. The complex is stunning with a beautiful pool area. Access to the beach is via a glass lift. The beach is a beautiful stretch of white sand there are a vast number of chairs and umbrellas. Also on site is a bar, the virgin mojito is the best I have ever tasted. There is a shop selling essentials, a coffee shop with delicious cakes and numerous superb restaurants. This is a fabulous place and if you are looking for a luxury lifestyle you won’t be disappointed.

Hi trip advisors I’ve got some feedback off this mornings visit. After spending a lot of money to experience this on one of my days of a holiday, the expectation of the crane village was very disappointing. Motivational The location where this is set is amazing for pictures on the balcony, facing over the sea. The buffet was average, however it felt like the food was not served to a reasonable temperature Developmental You need to understand that there is no need to staff to be rude, and giving really bad customer service, at the end of the day there just filling up tea and coffee + water. During my visit they filled up empty glasses on tables not getting used and my glass was empty and I had to go and find someone for more water. You need to inform your staff when a plate is finished it should be removed, not left for 25 minutes when there was 5 tables getting served. The music was that bad, when they said they where touring Canada soon, I wish they already went, because they couldn’t sing. My overall experience is do not go and waste your time here, when I 1st walked in I was like this hotel looks amazing, when I left I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Sorry guys it’s a no from me
