We went for the Sunday Gospel breakfast and the whole experience was brilliant. The views are amazing from the L'azure restaurant. Varied buffet, but the lack of poached or fried eggs was the only slight disappointment. However this was offset by smoked fish and traditional Bajan and Caribbean items. Service was very good.

We are an interval owner so it is with heavy heart we write this revue. In all our visits to the Crane we hope each time that they have managed to bring the resort up to the standard they aspire. Sadly they have never managed to do so and this visit was no exception. We stayed in a garden two...

It is the Bajan staff at The Crane that really make our annual 4 week stay something special. The Crane Resort sits above one of the best beaches in the world. My wife and I have an apartment which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean a mere 25 metres from our patio. We are so, so lucky. There are five excellent restaurants,...

We weren't residents here but I wish we were. We stumbled on it more by luck then anything else. Amazing restaurants, gorgeous beach, quant shops. We tried 3 of the restaurants and none of them disappointed! The beach is easily reached by an elevator and you can hire umbrellas and sun beds from the guys down there. There is also...

I now consider myself a regular at 4 visits in 4 years. The Crane and it's super attentive staff are here to look after their guests. The culture at this resort is to make your vacation stay a memorable one. The Crane beach is in the best shape we have experienced in 4 years. The beach was a daily event...

Myself and 3 of my girlfriends had a 2 bedroom 28 ft pool suite in Building 5. It was "AMAZING". Although the water was cool, it was so nice just to sit out by our pool and relax. The room is very beautiful and large. The room was kept very clean and we had no issues with towels etc. The...

My wife and I visited the Crane for the second time Feb 9-13 and once again we were not disappointed. We arrived early and was welcomed with a very tasty Rum Punch and our room was ready early. We had a one bedroom unit on the fourth floor in building four. The view was amazing and the breeze was so...

First off let me say we are NOT owners, we just booked a 3 night stay here to experience the Crane after staying both on the South and West coasts on our trip to Barbados. We see that most posting here love the Crane and there are many positives to it----our one BR suite was huge, and the village is...

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...

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.
