Beautiful location on crane beach,

We stayed for a few days after being on the south/west coast for a week. Nice to see a different style to the island where things are lot quieter. Best thing about the the hotel is the access to the beach, we spent most of the time there. Service is slow at times and it very much caters for the Americans. The had food the Italien and Zen and both were excellent standards altough the Zen was pricey for what it was Sushi/Thai. We enjoyed your stay but wouldn't return as did feel a lack of facilities to keep us busy.

Simply amazing!!!

The Crane is amazing! The room we were given was spacious and better than we had expected. Four poster bed, separate lounge and two bathrooms, one with a Jacuzzi. The staff at the hotel are the most helpful and the food in all the restaurants is good but a visit to Zagat rated Zen is a must. Crane beach is rated one of the top 10 in the world for a good reason. Pink sand as fine as you can imagine and turquoise surf. Not for small children but great fun! We cannot wait to go back.

Too short

Stayed for one night to catch a flight the next day - wish it could have been longer. The natural environment was fantastic, the man made facilities added the extra. A great place.

Fantastic Holiday at the Crane

The Crane never fails to disappoint. The service is excellent, the rooms are huge, and the beach is awesome with pink sand and turquoise crashing waves. This was my 6th time here, so I am a fan, I love the rum punches served on the beach by attentive staff and the restaurants which are competitively priced serving an array of worldly cuisines, my favourite being Zen, the Japanese restaurant. This hotel is isolated, so if you want to party, stay on the West Coast, but if it`s relaxation and a calm elegant atmosphere, then this is the place to be.

The Crane

Situated on the South East Coast of Barbados, with a wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean (together with breeze) and a perfect beach, I would thoroughly recommend The Crane when thinking of booking a luxurious hotel for a Barbados holiday. The accommodation comprises very spacious rooms which are serviced daily and kept to a high standard. There are several good restaurants, a bar, grocery store, gym, several pools, Jacuzzi, spa, coffee/bakery shop, Duty Free Shop, Jewellers, beautiful maintained gardens etc making the hotel complex quite contained with a village feel. Staff were all pleasant, and in general, put themselves out to be helpful. Would highly recommend and intend to return again.

The Crane just gets better

A truly relaxing holiday, the Crane is all about elegance, sophistication and taking it easy, The location of this hotel is on a cliff top overlooking Crane Beach, with its Pink sand and turquoise sea, it is fabulous. The waves are not for the faint hearted and they can pick you up and toss you around, absolute great fun, one of the reasons why I come here. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are enormous, the bathrooms are huge and all is spotless. There restaurants are good but very expensive and the Crane is situated a good distance from any night life. If you want to party, then stay on the West Coast, if you`re exhausted and just want to chill out then go to the Crane. There are areas that need improving, that is the large pool area, mainly the pools themselves, they need to be emptied and be relined as they are looking tired and worn. But overall a great place to stay. A car hire is a must to get out and about, to really see the Island.

Perfect Peace & Quiet

The setting for this holiday is just amazing, over looking the beautiful Crane Beach. The staff at the hotel were so helpful & friendly whatever their position or your enquiry. We stayed in one of the "Residences in the park" and had our own garden & plunge pool which was perfect. We went on several trips booked at the hotel including a Jeep Safari, trip on a Catamaran where we swam with turtles, saw loads of tropical fishes and even saw a pod of whales. We also did the "Harrison Caves" & wildlife Park all of which were fabulous giving us the opportunity to see much of the Island. The restaurants at the hotel were first class and we enjoyed every meal we had. If you like Japanese food then a visit (or 2 or 3 ) to "The Zen" is a must! Perhaps the only "downside" of the whole holiday was the distance from the hotel to any other night life (if you wanted to go elsewhere) as it was a journey of about half an hour to go either into Bridgetown or the West Coast, as there was not a lot of evening entertainment at the hotel. Overall the experience was memorable and we would love to go back.
