The grounds are easy to navigate and the rooms are large, clean, and beautiful. Our bathroom was the size of my apartment at home and had a jetted tub, double sink, walk in... More

This resort was amazing. You could spend your entire vocation without leaving the premises and truly enjoy yourself from dining, bar, beach, pool, shopping you name it. The staff and workers were very courteous and lend to the pleasantries to be enjoyed.

Had a really excellent stay at the Crane. Really special private beach, rooms were spacious and clean, staff were so friendly. This is no exaggeration by the end, I felt like I was leaving my friends. The welcoming rum punch is a nice touch and the food is good especially at the Zen! I went with a few of my... More

Daughter, shattered arm in ocean by a wave, life guard and staff were annoyed most of the time. No power for... More

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. ... more   less
