The Crane Resort


Email | Share |

Blush-pink sand and turquoise water give The Crane Resort a special place in the Caribbean. This lovely historic retreat is located in Barbados, about five miles northeast of Grantley Adams International Airport.

Cherished for its casual luxury and warm hospitality, this splendid beach is protected by a natural coral reef just offshore, and touted as the first resort ever to grace the Caribbean. Glide through crystal waters in one of four sparkling pools, including an infinity-edge design, and an even more unusual version that teeters on the edge of a cliff. Guests will enjoy six swimming pools, two tennis courts, four restaurants, two bars, and a colorful shopping village. Lush coconut groves linger on this gorgeous tropical landscape dusted in rosy sand, boasting cascading pools and the best swimming on the island.

Housing a trio of fantastic dining venues, the hotel retains some of the most delicious menu items in the Caribbean. Dine at L'Azure Restaurant for a tempting range of classic island dinners, fresh seafood and ocean-view seating. Thai and Japanese cuisine unite at Zen Restaurant, offering a succulent sushi bar, private dining options and soothing Tatami, rice-straw crafted rooms.

Kids ages 4-12 will love the Calypso Kids Club. Located within the Crane Village, children will take part in a variety of fun-filled activities such as arts and crafts, movies, magic, and more. Babysitting services are also available.

Enjoy high-ceiling rooms, hardwood floors, and authentic antique furnishings. Relax on enormous four-poster beds carved from mahogany, or for even more luxurious accommodation, spend a night in a magnificent Penthouse Villa, with floor-to-ceiling louvered doors, stone floors, a gourmet kitchen, and extraordinary views of the island. Private Residences are also available, equipped with opulent amenities such as coral stone walls, private plunge pools and all the privacy you can envision.

Amazing holiday.

This was our first time in Barbados and we’re so pleased we chose the crane resort. The resort is 1sr class and everything from the welcome, to the check-out was easy and relaxed. The customer service was amazing, every member of staff was fantastic and so helpful, a couple in particular.... Cheryl on the front desk, Jeffrey who was so friendly approachable and polite and Mel, who was one of the managers, who took time out every time to say hello, ask how we were doing and always had a big big smile! We will certainly be returning to the crane in the future and if you’re looking for a lovely, relaxed holiday in Barbados I wouldn’t hesitate in coming here!

I just returned from The Crane. The resort itself is older and there is constant construction work being done that is very loud at times. There isn’t one part of the hotel that I can say is new or doesn’t need an update. I stayed in a two bedroom suite with a 28 ft pool. The room view was beautiful. The kitchen in the room needs a major update. Our cleaning women was amazing. Her name was Valerie. She was such a pleasure to be around. The beach is full of seaweed which of course is not the hotels fault. They will bring you to another beach if you choose. Pools were all beautiful. The views from all areas are amazing. The Italian restaurant was soooo yummy. I ate there most nights Bc i loved it so much. Overall a good stay. Like I said the hotel just needs to do some updating. The property is huge!!!! All staff were very nice and friendly :)

Just a fabulous place to get renergized

We have been coming to this resort for 5 years. The staff is so courteous and go out of their way to accommodate. The facilities are kept in great shape. The pools are excellent. Very easy place to get a good rest. The resort is children friendly with their wading pool. Three restaurants on site and always a taxi waiting to get you off site to other places. Nice that it is only a short drive to the airport. Just love this place. Highly recommended.

Initially fabulous but then the shine wore off

Being a regular visitor to the island and having spent the day here last year was looking forward to spending a fortnight relaxing here. Initial impressions were good and delighted to be upgraded to the ocean view room. First week met expectations but second week let the resort down. From having to ring housekeeping on various occasions as missing basic amenities to not actually having the room cleaned and made to feel our fault! On the last day, being a UK traveller, we were looking forward to enjoying the amenities of the resort only to be told that we couldn't keep our room and only facilities were at the gym. Totally not what I'd expect of this calibre of accommodation and ruined our view of this property as a place for future stays. Restaurants overall were good special thanks to errol in the Italian and simone at Zen but again overall service did not meet expectations
