Excellent resort and I would def. recommend to others. The check-in process was fairly smooth but we were left in the lobby for a while before someone told us what to do next. Rooms in need of a little refurbishment, several things don't work and are out of date. Recurrent troubles with the HVAC system, thermostat very sensitive clicking on...

We had a fabulous room at the Crane. Our housekeeper Julia was the very best! Rum punch on check in was fabulous. The hotel, grounds and people were all wonderful. The food was average but good. However, I am sorry to say we would not stay at the Crane again. It is to secluded and 30-45 minutes away from all...

My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Barbados. Though we usually stay in small boutique hotels, I chose the Crane for its remote location. It was the perfect choice. The beach, rooms and grounds are amazing. (I know some have complained about the mold on some buildings etc. Remember they have sun, salt, water, and wind...

Fabulous location to begin the perfect luxury holiday. Accommodation is beyond 5 Stars and the staff are top notch! Looking over the pink sand beach from the Zen restaurant. East Coast of Barbados is worth at minimum a day trip. So fortunate I'm staying at The Crane!

We stayed in the crane for 3 nights and it was the most relaxing mini break ever. I visited the crane spa 2 years before and was so amazed by the grounds and service I knew I would have to return. We were greeted at reception with a complimentary rum punch which was delicious. The hotel grounds were stunning. We...
