Travelers' Choice
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. Guests also enjoy complimentary WiFi in all guest rooms and around the resort - even on Crane Beach - and complimentary long-distance calls to most international destinations.

Seems like The Crane now focus purly on money and we are memebers but have been treated so badly. Would advise people to think twice before go to the Crane. We have been going there for many years and feel they have changed for the worst.

Can anyone please tell me how to get the crane resort to respond to me. Not only do I have a complaint about the 9 days spent there but they have also overcharged me. On top of that there was a suitcase left behind that we need to collect. They do not answer messages, telephone calls or emails. My stay was certainaly not worth the money. First night a power cut (not their fault), no beach towels for 2 days running and bed linen was non existent. All restaurants had no food at all one evening so we could not eat. Service was appalling. Most importantly I want a refund for the overcharge of the double deposit taken and the charge for the breakfast (60 usd a day) whcih was including in the original booking. Any help really appreciated and it has completely ruined my holiday and I will NEVER go back there :(

Our first full day and I am sat in my room waiting for someone to open our safe.No instructions so we did what we usually did in safes we have used all over the world. I've been here thirty minutes after my visit to reception. On arrival no cheery "Welcome to The Crane Resort"just passports please. I felt like I was in Russia. No resort map handed over, nothing in the room to say what time breakfast is served, where to get beach towels etc. Breakfast was disappointing, the bacon very fatty and not a typically Barbarian welcome from the chap in charge. I really hope it gets,better.

Good afternoon Yorkie52Yoxall, I have sent you and email to please contact me via cell and/or email, or simply dial "0" for the operator if you are still vacationing with us. Please check your Trip Advisor messages. I am sorry to hear about your mentioned experiences. The Crane Resort has discontinued to have in-room directory and/or maps for the past 2 years (January 2020 due to COVID-19). We have replaced said with a QR-Code which is provided in one's key envelope and with a Smart Phone all information about the resort (inclusive of a resort map, restaurants, menus, etc). Additionally, The Crane is famous for its warm welcome and Rum Punch Welcome Cocktail. Staff are regularly praised (as seeing below). I am sorry that you did not have this experience and again, kindly ask to contact me directly. I look forward to hearing from you very soon. kind regards, Chris Forbes

Four of us, all of us in our 60's and 70's, stayed at the Crane for a few days before our sailing trip to the Caribbean. Our rooms were on the third floor. The elevator was not working; no one explained why. No one came to fix it, so we were force to walk up and down the whole stay. Overall management was inept, ineffective, and indifferent to the point of rudeness. An exception was housekeeping. Exact opposite of management. I will never stay there again, and my advice to all other travelers is to AVOID THIS PLACE. SAVE YOUR MONEY.
