30th Birthday

For my 30th birthday my fiance and I went to Barbados in November and stayed at The Crane Resort. Rooms were spectacular and the private beach. This resort is perfect if you want to relax and stay on the resort for most of your trip. There are many restaurants and bar and the resort has activities daily. Congeirege is on site to plan excursions and male dinner reservations! Food was great we had the Italian restaurant and carribean. We only stayed 3 days which is definitely not enough time we are even thinking to come back and have our honeymoon here! The tourism part seems to be Bridgetown so you can just take a cab there and they have a day trip you can take a shuttle for a day to go shopping. Barbados exchange rate is half of USD and drinks were reasonable prcies and there was many happy hours. Resort even hosted a cocktail party for guests with free drinks. We did the submarine tour and cave for excursions which were awesome! I recommend this resort it was awesome and I will visit again in near future!

The lap of luxury

Me and my boyfriend have just returned from our first stay at the crane hotel .. what can I say .. absolutely AMAZING the service in this hotel is next to none ! The staff cannot help you enough and go out of their way to assist. The rooms are spotless and housekeeping do an amazing job of cleaning the rooms every day. The vibe is relaxed and luxurious. Location is great ! Pictures on the website don't do it justice our room looked SO much better in person and it was huge ! Would definitely stay again! Shout out to our amazing waitress in 1887 bar who delivers service with a smile every night 😄Thank you amazing holiday

Worst customer service ever

We decided to visit Crane Bay resort for lunch and a drink, whilst exploring the South East of the islandThe scale and setting of the place is fantastic, although I felt I was in an episode of The Prisoner(gives my age away a bit)Without exception, we never got a friendly greeting or even a smile from any member of staffNo one seemed to know where we could get lunch and we eventually found The Carriage House. The service was non existent and, when we eventually got a menu, we were told we would have to wait quite a while We asked for a drinks menu, which we never got, and after waiting half an hour without any attention we walked out and will not be going backThroughout this process we never got a smile from anyoneThis is an expensive resort but has a major need for more, better quality staff with good training in customer service

Paradise in Paradise

Just had a amazing three week stay at the Crane. The bar and restaurant staff were amazing, the whole time we were there nothing was ever a problem or a chore they really enriched our stay. The resort is beautifully maintained and the views are stunning, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the bajan sun.

Truly amazing resort

Where do I start..... this resort is totally amazing, everything is first class! Our trip was completely faultless! The resort is stunning, the beach is by far the most beautiful beach we have ever seen! The restaurants are all truly outstanding! I could go on forever, but I would only be praising everything! I cannot recommend this resort highly enough, you will not be disappointed! Thank you to the staff and management at The Crane for a great trip especially Jason (Ambassador, head of catering) who was always very happy and welcoming remembering everyone and their drinks of choice x we will be returning in the new year x
