Amazing property and friendly, attentive staff

We stayed in a 3 bedroom Penthouse Suite with 5 teenagers and my wife and me. The Suite was huge, well appointed and clean. The property is gorgeous as is the beach. So much to do and so many amazing views. Stayed 7 nights. Restaurants from good to great. Absolutely loved the Crane!

Paradise found on our 14th!

We celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary at The Crane last week. While their website attempts to capture its magnificence, it simply can’t do it justice. Breathtaking views from our balcony, Zen & L’Azure restaurants and elsewhere on the resort. Reference to the top ten beaches in the world is justified – truly amazing powdery sand with a lovely pink hue and undulating turquoise waves. Astonishingly great Thai food at Zen, and the Mahi-mahi gnocchi dish at L'Azure was quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. Our room was splendid, and while we appreciated the air conditioning option, we preferred the soft breeze of the open air. The warm welcome and attentiveness of the staff added to the charm. All in – a must visit - whether you choose to stay at The Crane or simply visit for dinner while in Barbados.

Day Out

One of our friends took us on a tour of the island and we finished up at the Crane Resort. This is on the east coast of the island where the sea is very rough, it was fantastic in the surf, where the waves were massive and really great fun. Nice beach and is open to non residents. The little food shack does great lunches and reasonably priced. Our friends had lunch in the hotel and that looked good as well.It is certainly worth a day out as the beach and sea are completely different from the West coast

Great stay!

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, restaurants and the beach! The room was clean when we arrived and the daily cleaning service was good. No washer/dryer inside the unit, rather it is located just outside the front door (to the side). Our refrigerator broke down and they replaced it right away. There were a few times we called the front desk (towels, trash bags, IT, etc.) and the staff at the Crane responded right away. Internet access worked fine.
