It is a fabulous resort with every upgrade you can hope for. We have been staying here for years....it's wonderful in every way. Shopping in the Crane Village, nice restaurant choices , a grocery store for incidentals and come cooking if you so desire. Friendly staff, beautiful ocean views from most buildings....4 or 5 pools, a beautiful beach...it is a complete package.Comment of M. Ron , United States the 2016-08-06
"Wonderfull People at the Crane"
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 the good restaurants or shopping. We would stay on the west or south coast because there is so much more happening. Cabs are very expensive so we rented a car. We felt we spent the whole week driving in a car. If you want to go just sit and relax and never leave and explore the island then it is a wonderful place for you. The ocean is rough on the east side of the island so if you want calm water to swim you need to go to the south or west coast. It is a beautiful spot but not for us because to secluded.
Room service is non existent, we ordered food and we have been told 45 min, hour and a half later food still not here, when we called we've been simply told it's coming shortly. We waited for our room till 5pm even though rooms are to be ready by 3pm, if you don't have reservation at restaurant forget getting a good seat even if they have them available you will get the worst one. For being such an upscale resort they have lots to do on customer service
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 working against them. Maintenance was busy every day painting/washing.) All staff were friendly and eager to please. Housekeeping was excellent. We were oceanfront in building 9 and had no need for AC. Ocean breezes were fantastic. I would stay here again...so relaxing.
We have traveled with family to The Crane resort several times and would not go anywhere else. From the Rum Punch when you check-in, the courteous staff, beautiful grounds, spacious rooms, the amenities are amazing. Wonderful selection of restaurants. Lovely coffee shop with the best banana bread, a perfect way to start your day. Delicious food and drinks on the beach at the Grill, delivered by wonderful staff. Every time we have come over the years, they have found someway to make it better, which I thought was impossible. From the ice water at the pools to the bathroom on the beach, one of the best beaches in the world! You won't be disappointed and will return, like we do!
"The Crane Residence by the Sea"
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!
