Travelers' Choice
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.

We spent a week at the Crane in September 2021 and we had a fabulous time. The resort boasts multiple restaurants and bars for most cuisines. There is also a small shop onsite if you need to buy any food, snacks or drinks. The breakfast was served in one of the larger restaurants and the selection was very good. As we had booked via Hilton and being a Hilton Honors Gold Member, they were also able to extend some of the privilege's i.e. a room upgrade and free breakfast. I would also like to take this opportunity of saying that Richard Bayne, who was usually always assisting in the reception area, was always very helpful - a real asset to the Crane Resort. Highly recommended and we will definitely be back :-)

Absolutely loved this hotel. So much to do and explore throughout the grounds. Guest room was very nice with lots of room to relax (bed was super comfortable). The restaurant’s and bars were all great (especially like the beach bar). The beach and pools were amazing. Even with Covid issues we felt completely safe as the sanitizing protocols were everywhere. Can’t wait to return.

This was my ninth trip to the Crane when a friend and I stayed in December (10th-17th). It had been too long since my last visit in 2019 and as always it was wonderful. We stayed in a suite on building 9 with a 28ft private pool, which was lovely. The service was exceptional as per usual, with a big thanks to Cheryl on reception Kiesha on concierge, and Jeff Edwards whom went above and beyond to ensure all guests

Probably our 8th trip to Crane - First time staying in Contemporary Rooms! Love them - not as close to ocean as others, but still had a great view and loved how new all the amenities were - also had the most awesome team taking care of our room led by Linda Innis (sp??) - she was wonderful!!
