A great resort in a fanastic location with superb cliff top ocean views away from the hustle & bustle of the west coast.

We stayed in a clean, spacious & elegant 1 bedroom apartment which we just loved.

The facilities were good and found the Staff to be very friendly and helpful.

The beautiful coral beach was great for lounging, wave jumping, body surfing & boogie boarding with deck chairs & umbrellas provided for resort guests. Boogie Boards were not provided though could be hired we bought our own

The beach activities & pools were enough to keep our 9 year old busy

Room Tip: Would choose an ocean view for the view & sea breeze

Dear dee m,

We may have designed The Crane just for you! Our location on the South East coast of the island is ideal for those who wish to escape from the hustle and bustle into the peaceful retreat that is The Crane.

The Crane is perfect for a family vacation with spacious accommodations and children just love our pools and the beautiful Crane Beach! There are also plans for the addition of a Kid’s Club that I’m sure your nine year old would enjoy.

We look forward to your next visit!

Warm wishes,
Michael Phillips
General Manager

I had visited The Crane previously for a walk around for a couple of hours last year. This year I have had the opportunity to stay at The Crane for two weeks and greatly enjoyed the experience.

Our third stay at The Crane, once again the grounds and the whole ambience a delight. When we arrive we just unwind and enjoy, nothing is too much trouble. A delight.

Room Tip: Anywhere, all the rooms have their own special features.

We have just returned from a three week holiday to our "little 'peace' of heaven" in Barbados. We LOVE The Crane from the 'welcome back' amazing Rum Punch (only one needed), to the location (quiet), to the sand (never hot and like powder to walk on), to the ocean (boogie board heaven), to the breeze off the ocean (no AC needed), to the exceptionally friendly and helpful staff (thanks Ryvan, Sandra and Nadia for taking such good care of us), to the Sunday Gospel Brunch at L'Azure (wonderful), to the Crab Wrap at the Carriage House (need I say more), to the Cappuccino and yummy desserts at the Bakery/Coffee House (ate a different one every day), to the Wednesday evening Artisan Fair that The Crane offers in their 'Village' to support local artist/craft folk (we have purchased very unique and wonderful gifts).
The choice of rooms from one bedroom, which sleep four, to a two bedroom which is actually a one bedroom with a 'lockoff' self sufficient back room, to the main floor pool suites, to the side plunge pool rooms, to the penthouses, to the original Crane Hotel rooms and now all of The Garden rooms, the choices go on and on. The grounds are beautiful and extremely well kept as staff works daily on the continual upkeep in this tropical paradise. There are pools for every level of swimming/playing and a great Spa.....now I want to go back.
The cab ride from the airport is only $31.00 Bajan dollars (cheap) and all of the cabbies are very friendly and love to talk about 'their' island. The tours on the island are great and the bus rides are $2.00 Bajan and they go everywhere that we wanted. The Fish Fry at Oistens is a wonderful place to meet the locals, dance and buy some crafts.
Also, check out The Royal Skipper Tall Ship that leaves from Bridgetown (capital) for a one week cruise around other Caribbean Island, another amazing experience offered by this 'island in the sun'.

Dear Kathy R,

I could not have said it any better. The Crane is definitely “a little ‘peace’ of heaven” in Barbados. The tranquillity and beauty of the resort is our key differentiator.

Ryvan, Sandra and Nadia were all delighted to read your special mention. Thank you for taking the time to post this review outlining many of the wonderful features of The Crane. You have not left anything for me to add!

It was our pleasure to welcome you; we look forward to your next visit.
