We stayed in one of the penthouse rooms in building 2. Gorgeous view of the ocean and pools. The breezes coming off the ocean throughout the day and night were really nice! Plenty of room for a family of 4. Lovely wood floors, high ceilings, big couches, recessed lighting, 3.5 baths, quiet. Our room was close to fitness center, shops,...

My family and I look forward to going to Barbados every year. We have been to the crane for many years and keep going back because of the spacious room, friendly staff and spectacular beach. This year as usual we had a great stay until my son's camera was stolen from the room. It was an expensive piece of equipment...

Service was great, friendly and prompt. The grounds were wonderful, the food was delicious (watch out for that crazy $15 room service charge), and the rooms were pretty. The pools were amazing! And the view from the hot tub was unreal. Getting around was hard, signage wasn't the best and the resort is big so golf carts would be good....

Dear plinababez23, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. The Crane is indeed the perfect choice for a Barbados wedding with beautiful grounds, breathtaking views and friendly, attentive service. However, we do apologise for the discomfort you experienced. Unfortunately, a fault in our chiller system affected cooling in a few areas throughout the resort, during your stay....

We have visited The Crane Resort every year for the past 11 years. It's a favorite! Over the years it's grown into a complete resort to include several restaurants, a spa, a beautiful pool complex - all set atop a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Additionally the beach is gorgeous, and has been rated as one of the loveliest in...

The Crane is a spectacular piece of property located on the East Coast of Barbados. The grounds are magnificent with constant attention given to their maintenance, and meticulously kept . The staff - very lovely and attentive. For some reason, we all agreed their male staff was friendlier than the female staff ( that was our perception). The crew down...

What you see on the website photos is what you get. Crane resort is an elegant resort off a cliff in Barbados. The grounds and views are beautiful and has a fort like village feel when you are walking the property. My family ate at 3 of the 4 restaurants on the property and were all good. The only reason...

This property is located at a very strategic spot, much above sea level, making it very scenic with dramatic rock formations along the coastline. Despite being on a raised cliff there's a vast beach on the other side. Beach has plenty of shallow water but the waves tend to get slightly rough, typical of the island; great for boogie boarding!...

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.
