We had a one bedroom unit on the fourth floor in building four. The view was amazing and the breeze was so...

Lovely place to stay. Sweetest staff--from Sheryll at reception, to Eyvette at the restaurant, and especially the bellman, Errol, and his father who works in one of the restaurants. Will def. be back!

Our room was like a castle! It was huge and we were able to cook and relax in our room while feeling like we were on vacation. The resort was really nice including the pools and beach access. The restaurants were overpriced and food was mediocre. We bought food and cooked and then went to dinner at Marco Polo Bar...

...that hasn't already been said? We just returned from The Crane a couple weeks ago and it was just as wonderful as others have proclaimed. As others have said, the staff was very hospitable and warm and welcoming. We stayed in Building 8; had zero issues with A/C (hardly used it, due to cool ocean breeze) or water pressure. We...

I cant say anything negative about the Crane. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. We told the desk that our coffee maker was not working well and someone came up with a new one within 5 minutes. The room was very comfortable - we had a pleasant balcony to sit on, a whirlpool tub, kitchenette, and small desk - all attractive...

Where do I begin to describe EXCELLENCE in hospitality? Thirty three years ago I visited Barbados on our honeymoon. We stayed at Sam Lords Castle. It was magic and I give full credit to the people of Barbados. So wonderful, friendly, helpful and accommodating.

Since 1887, The Crane Resort has overlooked the pink sands and turquoise waters of Crane Beach - one of the top 10 beaches in the world as rated by the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and most recently named the "Best Beach in the Caribbean" by USA Today's 10Best Readers Choice 2015. Set on Barbados' beautiful South East coast, the oldest operating hotel in the Caribbean has effortlessly married the old-world charm of its past, to all the 21st century amenities and services expected by today's most discerning travellers. 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.
