We just arrived back from our 4 night stay at the Crane Hotel March 31st.
We had stumbled on an awesome deal on groupon, and decided to head out to barbados.
Was immpecable from the bell boys, to the front desk, and the lady all the way to the right desk at guest services was so much fun to talk to and did a great job helping us plan our trip (i wish could remember her name) Overall the staff personnel here are very freindly and would always say hello and exchange goodmornings or even walk us to our destination.
Restaurant service lacked a sense of urgency, and was too "relaxed" for my taste (I am a New Yorker)
**** JUNIOR our cab driver for the entire trip who we found at the hotel was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip. He was our driver, body guard lol, photographer, tour guide, and most importantly friend! Junior you really made out trip and i hope you get to read this! Thank you for everything ! and we MISS you!
If you need a cab driver (which you will because everything is so far) call or ask for him
(246)237-2773 great rates + always on time
We had breakfast in La azzure by the beach, lunch at the carriage house, and drinks at the bar.
Prices for food are overpriced, as expected. I'd make the trip else where for dinner.
Were Beautful, and well kept, spacious. The room attendant always did a great job. My only complaint here was that the floors looked clean but didn't feel clean. Expect your feet to be black after 15 min of walking barefoot. House keeping really needs to start mopping those floors!
The views in this hotel are AMAAAZINGGGG EVRYWHERE!! from the beach to the pool at the restaurants . JUST BREATHTAKING . Location wise, the crane is pretty far from everything! My advice rent a car or hire JUNIOR. The hotel itself is beautiful too, but is need of better upkeep.
Beach is public but so secluded its really just your own.
Overall I do think the groupon price is fair and would return for a second stay, however if you are paying full price for your stay i dont think its worth it.
